Thanks to everyone that came out to the Yummy Pig for my presentation on email newsletter usability. I'd been waiting 7 years to speak on that topic, as I held onto several emails perfect for it. I had a lot of fun giving the presentation and I think the audience had fun listening to it.

Jeb Bush site sends visitors to Trump campaign

This is why we are paranoid for our clients, especially political ones, when it comes to buying domain names. We encourage them to buy the ones with their names... even if they don't plan to use them. But also we recommend being sensible - you can't guess every possible domain, but you should get the ones that people will likely guess to be your own.

Finding more mobile-friendly search results

In case you haven't heard, April 21 is "Mobilegeddon"... That's the day Google changes it's mobile search rankings to bury non-mobile-friendly websites (see link below for more info). Is your site ready? If not, we can help. Contact us today.

When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns. In the past, we’v…

The latest version of Firefox browser has eliminated support for the tag and blinking text in CSS. I don't see blinking text on the Web much anymore, thankfully. But when I do, each time I die a little on the inside ... To a long life with no more blinking text! ;-)

Facebook must've done some usability tests to learn that having timeline events alternate left and right is really annoying. On personal timeline pages they put the timeline in the right column and other stuff on the left. But people focus more on the left side, so the important part (timeline) should have been in that column. Now if they would fix this page.

Today is Huberspace's 10th Anniversary! July 1, 2002,we opened for business and have been building a better Web, one site at a time.

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients... and our not-so-wonderful (ex)clients, who still taught us a lot.

We will have more regarding this milestone as the week and/or month progresses. Stay tuned!

App Store - Daily Toast - Drink-of-the-Day Calendar

This Fat Tuesday is the perfect day to announce that my new app, Daily Toast, is available on the App Store. The app is a drink-a-day calendar - a different holiday for every day of the year and a mixed drink to go with it.

Thanks to my wonderful guests who, with their busy schedules, made it out to see my presentation this morning.

For those who missed it, it was... interesting. Due to technical difficulties, I wasn't able to show the presentation on their projector screen. So I had to modify a heavily visual presentation to be completely verbal on the fly. It went well, considering the constraints.

Next week, I will be giving another exciting presentation to the Loudoun Network Alliance. It will be at Velocity 5 in Lansdowne (formerly the Dock), on Wednesday, June 15 at 11:30am.

I just don't know what I will be talking about. Possibly email newsletter usability, or some other kind of usability (of course). Whatever it is, you will be surprised and will learn a thing or two. Stay tuned, and RSVP today.

Tonight on O'Reilly, 2 clients of mine who essentially agree with each other are going to be debating the same topic. this should be interesting... Or completely the opposite. Either way, I'm rooting for my client. ;-)

It's not all good news from Huberspace...

Our political writer, Kathryn, passed away this weekend. I (Jim Huber) worked for her before starting this company. Nearly everything I know about political Web design I learned from her. She was my mentor. My company is a small part of her huge legacy. She had an impact on many people, across the country and around the world. There are few people like her. She'll be missed.

Excellent! One of our clients' was on the O'Reilly Factor tonight, AND their site was shown on the show! Okay, it was just a printout, and was so the other guest could (dishonestly) criticize my client. But at least it made us look good (and the other guest made himself look like an jackass).

As of yesterday, we've been in business for 8 years! Interesting to see how much the Web has changed, yet how much has also stayed the same.

Few days ago, LoudounSBDC had a party for the people that helped out with their "Building Business Together" Conference. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention it and what an incredible event it was. They treat their sponsors and volunteers VERY well.

06/16/2010

Presentation went moderately well. Not as good as previous ones... I wasn't as well rehearsed, and my hands were full. Plus with such a wealth of info on the mobile Web, there's never enough time. I would have liked to have shown a few more Web site examples, but time constraints really help keep things flowing.

Thanks to those who showed up to see me. Already got ideas for the next one. Hope you'll be back.

06/11/2010

It's been decided... I'll be discussing "Is your small business ready for the mobile Web?" Wednesday 6/16, 11:30am at the Dock in Lansdowne.

06/08/2010

Can't decide on my presentation topic next week on the 16th. Web sites for mobile devices is one possibility. Any suggestions?

Verizon | FiOS Internet - Your Attention Needed: Re-configure Your Email Settings to Send Email

Huberspace clients, if you're using Verizon and are having trouble sending emails from your Web site's mail server, take note:

Verizon is blocking outgoing mail on port 25. You need to either use their server or change the port from 25 to 587. See Verizon's instructions: http://bit.ly/9kqk5R

Most common email viruses are sent using port 25 to infect computers. Often times the user never knows their computer has been infected. In order to protect our customers, Verizon has turned off the ability ...

Great time at the LoudounSBDC's "Building Business Together" conference, for which we were Platinum sponsors. I was able meet some good people, as well as catch a few seminars with some really good tips on social media.

04/28/2010

Returning from the Loudoun Chamber LeadShare Luncheon. Featured speaker was Jennifer Abernathy, talking about social media marketing. Interesting, though not revolutionary. Maybe I need to read the book to get the full effect.

03/23/2010

Got back from class at Usability Week, offered by usability gurus, Nielsen Norman Group. Learned some great info I am eager to put into practice in my clients' sites.
