Zork Pen, Clever Web Design, iPhone Library, and Text Layout

  1. Zork and Tic-Tac-Toe on a LiveScribe Pen (YouTube) — this guy totally ported the Z-Machine so he can play Zork on his pen. My favourite bit is the comment from Infocom founder Scott Cutler: As the implementer who wrote the first Z-machine for the TRS-80 some 30 years ago and one of the founders of Infocom, I was thrilled and impressed to see what you did. I can guarantee you that we never imagined it would be played with a pen! (via Joe Johnston and Jason Scott)
  2. Ben the Bodyguard — brilliant web site design. (via Aza Raskin)
  3. three20 — open source iPhone library based on the Facebook app, providing things like photo viewer, message composer, etc. (via The Mission Lab)
  4. Scale and Rhythm — beautiful web site that lets you experiment with the variables in text layout.
