Interactive jQuery tester I dug this link up the other day, and thought I’d spread the love :) If you’ve ever had debugging issues with your jQuery selectors. Or would like to experiment a bit then the Interactive jQuery tester is a great solution. You paste your HTML, then type in the selectors. The elements that are actually selected are then highlighted, which gives instant feedback. Hope you find this as useful as I have in the past.
Computer Jedi.... is what greeted us when we registered for the MSDNLive event in oslo yesterday (21. October). With a focus on guiding and inspiring the attendees to unlock their potential, along the lines of Luke and Obi-Wan, the scene was set for the day’s sessions.
Some of you might know that Microsoft recently held its yearly Professional Developer Conference (PDC) in LA. They had an awesome lineup of “stars” lined up to talk about the latest microsft technologies, as well as shedding some light as to the direction in which the technology is progressing. I wasn’t one of the lucky to be there, but I got to watch the live-stream of the keynotes and some of the Channel 9 live stuff.

So, you’ve written that great article, you’ve shared it to your friends on facebook, and you’re looking to spread the word even further. Through Twittter, your url can reach entire diffrent audiences than Facebook sharing. Getting those first few important re-tweets on Twitter will start to spread your new blogpost like wildfire. If Twitter is still a great mystery to you, I’d recommend Scott Hanselman’s introduction to twitter. You may also be interested in reading Twitter’s own brief “about us” page.
Need to spread the word on your latest blog-post or article? Look no further than the Facebook sharer! Facebook has over 300 million users world-wide, and the chances are good that you can recruit readers. Adding a “share to facebook” icon easily allows your readers to spread YOUR word. This can be accomplished by using plugins for your blog-service, or “share-all” widgets like AddThis or ShareThis. The problem with these services, are that they over-complicate the simple share functionality that’s often wanted.
Podcasts I haven’t really been much of a podcast-subscriber, but since getting an Ipod nano, I found them entertaining and practical. I tried subscribing to a couple of radio-podcasts (RadioResepsjonen, Pyro, Tinitus) from a few Norwegian station. This worked out pretty nicely while I was at work, but seeing that I’m now on paternal leave, I have no time to listen to them. The Space-Time Continuum Paternal leave gives me tons of time with my 10 month old son, but it exhausts me totally.
