Small Pieces Loosely Joined, by David Weinberger was an ok book. Some chapters were great — I’ve never heard someone able to describe what’s good about the Web like this. Other chapters seemed a bit meandering and preachy, while others were a little too basic. Anyone who wants to work on the Web, but doesn’t have a clue on why and how it works should read this book though.

Redesign. After many months, we finally launched a complete front-end and back-end redesign/overhaul of Inc.com. It still isn’t perfect, but organizationally the site was a monster before this. It’s all being delivered with flat HTML files that are created purely with XML and XSLT (and JSP for the dynamic bits where needed).

Next? Fast Company.
