Designing Web Interfaces Book – O'Reilly Webcast

I just saw a very interesting slideshow about Designing Web Interfaces by Bill Scott in SlideShare.  I suggest checking out if you are interested about GUI stuff.

Also you can see his whole presentation (1:24:33) on YouTube (Sound is not very good unfortunally). I have not yet watched whole presentation but it is on my calendar.

A quick lesson about the canonical tag/element

Ever wonder how can you be sure that search engines do understand what is real name of your page you want to index?

Now, you can simply add this <link> tag to specify your preferred version:

<link rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.example.com/product/123″ />


Matt Cutts of Google introduces the canonical link element.
