Six Degrees Of Separation

I try to avoid writing about things that I’ve stumbled across whilst browsing—preferring instead to concentrate on creating my own content—but via a six degrees of separation-like process, I’ve come across something so remarkable that I just have to tell you about it.

I was browsing the Stylish Scripting blog on SitePoint, when I ended up at Cameron Adams’ The Man in Blue website. Now this site is probably old news for any of you high-quality web design gurus/aficionados who may be reading, but upon visiting it for the first time this afternoon, I was astonished by it.

Cameron has created a site that just about embodies everything I wanted for this site: compelling content, visually stunning and totally up to date and W3C standards-compliant. Only he got there in a way that I never could. I read most of the site this afternoon (sorry boss!) It really is a lovingly put together piece of work. However, that’s not what’s so remarkable that I just have to write about it…

Back in January this year, The Man in Blue created an online Scrabble game using nothing more than XHTML, CSS and Javascript. It’s called SSCrabble and is without a doubt the most interesting and impressive web application that I’ve ever seen. Okay, so it’s taken me nearly a year to come across it, but it was worth the wait! It really does show what can be achieved without having to resort to Java applets or Flash. Check it out.
