I am designing a website for a set of museum exhibits. The curator designed the museum panels so two items are displayed on each panel and the viewer experiences them in each other's context. If we were making a book instead of a website, we would place these items on facing pages. What is the equivalent of facing pages in web layout? Can you think of websites that pair items so they are experienced together (i.e. without scrolling down)? [more inside]

I'm finding as I age, I use Readability on a lot of pages. Can I make a local style sheet that overrides the native one upon first load of a page that does what Readability does?

I am interested in writing a non-fiction book or two (possibly ebooks) in a proven popular style. Where can I find resources, reviews, interviews, commentaries about choosing book structures, layout, language, tone and content that appeal to an aspirational audience? [more inside]

Is there a Readability-like app for video that will send YouTube videos to my Tivo or Apple TV with one or two mouse clicks? [more inside]

I want a cheap e-reader for reading longform articles in bed. It must work with Readability or InstaPaper or the like. It does not need to do anything else like games or surfing the intertubes. I have an iPhone for that. Do I want a Kindle?

I love(d) Instapaper. I really did. But I like Readability even more. Unfortunately I have seventeen thousand articles saved in Instapaper. How can I export / import?

I'm having no luck transferring the *complete* web page of 197 responses to this question posed by edge.org
(previously on the blue, I think) to my little friend, a Kindle Keyboard (aka Kindle 3).
I've tried using both Instapaper and Readability, but I think there's code in the webpage to disable a complete scraping. I'm also attempting to use calibre, and if anybody has a recipe that downloads a plain
web page (probably using something called "web2disk") in calibre, I'm all ears.

Name that font: What font is commonly used on car dashboards? Not for the speedometer numbers and such, but for the 'Unleaded Fuel Only', or the 'Service Engine Soon' text? [more inside]

What fonts are good for on-screen readability at small pixel sizes (<12 px)? Are bit fonts better for this kind of thing?
