Web F​ont Design: You Don't Have To Be Angry Anymore
March 29, 2012

In December 2011, Jan Dregalla and I were asked to do a presentation on how to use web fonts. This font design meeting was an outgrowth of a talk that two other CDPUG members and I did on January 27, 2011, called "Web Design, HTML and Beyond." At the end of the January 2011 meeting, there were many questions about the lack of control of fonts on websites, so CDPUG Program Director Spike Radway (@SpikeRadway) solicited our assistance to present: Web F​ont Design: You Don't Have To Be Angry Anymore

WebSigCleveland.org Javascript/Stylesheet Toolkits

At the March 17, 2012, WebSigCleveland.org meeting, Richard Schulte, a co-founder of the local tech worker co-op Flywheel Tech Collective, did a presentation on “Javascript/Stylesheet UI Toolkits - Why, Which and How?” He introduced attendees to the more popular and/or useful tools for developing Javascript and Cascading Stylesheets for website design, and Richard did not disappoint his audience.

Social Media You Should Be Doing Now

On March 10, 2012, we attended the meeting of the Greater Cleveland PC Users Group (GCPCUG) on “The Most Important Social Media You Should Be Doing Now” with speaker Sage Lewis of SageRock.

Sage gave a dynamic presentation on the uses and purposes of social media. It has been said that people have become isolated by the use of computers and other technology, but Sage put social media in a different perspective by showing how it actually brings people together and fits in with people as “social creatures.” 

Meetings I track this week

In addition to my WebSigCleveland.org meeting, there are approximately 20 other tech, social media, and entrepreneur group meetings taking place this week.  If you are on Twitter or Facebook, please share with your followers/friends those meetings you think would be of interest to them.

Cleveland NASA Tweetup

On March 2, 2012, people came from all over the USA to Cleveland, Ohio, to honor Senator John Glenn on the 50th anniversary of his orbital flight. To help in the celebration, the NASA Glenn Research Center organized a NASA Tweetup. The 75 Tweetup attendees enjoyed a day of NASA tours, and learned to appreciate the NASA program here in Cleveland.
