Dynamic Drive CSS Library- Flat flipping menu buttons

Dynamic Drive CSS Library- Flat flipping menu buttons | Content Curation |

These menu buttons combine the two hot trends that are flat design (absence of bevels, gradients and shadows etc) and CSS3 to create a bold and modern looking navigation system. 

Beth Alexander's insight:

Create flat-flipping buttons that combine two hot design trends, flat design with a twirling/flipping css effect.

Pinterest, Tumblr and the Trouble With ‘Curation’

Pinterest, Tumblr and the Trouble With ‘Curation’ | Content Curation |

Curated by Beth Kanter 

This is a fun essay about visual addictions or "life style yearning" that is what we see mostly on sites like Pinterest and Tumblr.  It isn't curation as the author points out:

Not everyone buys into this, of course. Here’s The Awl’s co-editor, Choire Sicha, for instance, on the subject of rebloggers who fancy themselves curators: “As a former actual curator, of like, actual art and whatnot, I think I’m fairly well positioned to say that you folks with your blog and your Tumblr and your whatever are not actually engaged in a practice of curation. Call it what you like: aggregating? Blogging? Choosing? Copyright infringing sometimes? But it’s not actually curation, or anything like it. . . .” To which a commenter added: “My Tumblr isn’t so much curated space as it is a symptom of deeper pathologies made manifest.”

“Curation” does imply something far more deliberate than these inspiration blogs, whose very point is to put the viewer into an aesthetic reverie unencumbered by thought or analysis. These sites are not meant (as curation is) to make us more conscious, but less so.
