The Foursquare Playground is an interactive, 3D world that's a fun twist on the Foursquare culture. We commissioned this project — built by our friends at VectorForm — in partnership with Foursquare to demonstrate the power of the HTML5 Geolocation API.
Ze Frank had this awesome idea to create a social game — Star.me — that focuses on positive reinforcement through the act of bestowing virtual stars upon each other. We thought it'd be perfect way to celebrate the launch of IE9 and helped make it a reality.
Aaron Gustafson brought up the idea of a best practices site for web standards with us. A little bit of paperwork, six months of active basecamping, and a little help from Dan Cedarholm led to Web Standards Sherpa — a journey towards best web practices.
With a desire to celebrate real web typography on the Web, we reached out to Jason Santa Maria with a rough idea. He brought Frank Chimero, Trent Walton, Naz Hamid and Dave Rupert on board — aka Mighty & Friends — and together, they brought us Lost World’s Fairs.
Could you build a complete web application using less than 10 kilobytes? We put that question to test with the 10K Apart contest in partnership with An Event Apart. 367 entries in 28 days answered the question with a resounding, "Yes!"
Designing, building and launching a web site is real hard work. To help explain the process, we recruited XPlane's help to create a poster that celebrates us — the people who make web sites. The highly-featured microsite is compliments of Things That Are Brown.
