The Buzz at Beaconfire: July 8, 2011

It has been a quiet week on the Beaconfire backchannel, most likely because we’ve all been trying to figure out just what the heck to do now that we’re on Google+ and trying to determine which contacts go into what circles. But there are still a few things that caught our attention.


We’re a bunch of geeks. With a well-documented love of infographics. So what could be better than a diagram of geek culture? Because nothing says Beaconfire better than an infographic that brings together XKCD, zombies, RennFest and cute kitties. (And, while we’re on the topic of infographics, Amy shared this gem with us: The Business Impact of Social Media.)


As mobile and tablet design is becoming increasingly important to clients, the concept of responsive web design is becoming more important to developers and content producers alike. Scott brought the Media Queries gallery to our attention so that we can peruse examples of how different websites display across mediums.

Welcome to the world (and Beaconfire), little one!


And last, but most certainly not least, Beaconfire’s family has grown again. Our own Neal and his wife Clara welcomed their second little boy into this world on Thursday. Can we get an “awwwwww”? Congratulations, Neal and Clara!
