The Age of the World… in Art
via @sryder A 3D visualization of the population as segmented by age of countries around the world. It’s a very interesting view of recent history and of what’s to come given the shift in demographics and the implications therein.
CSS3 Patterns Gallery
Great examples of creating complex backgrounds with CSS, sans images. The focus is on speed, by reducing HTTP requests, while avoiding the large data URI blocks within style sheets.

A Toolset For Managing Screen Resolutions
A great resource for designers and developers who need to work with multiple-resolutions and devices…wait, that’s all of us!
The package includes (taken form their site):
1. A collection of Photoshop® CS5 marquee-tool presets for common screen resolutions. These cover both fixed-screen resolution sizes and ratios for less common resolutions that fall within standard ratios.
2. A collection of layered Photoshop CS5 PSDs each providing common devices for comping and design presentations. These devices cover the standard ratios and device types (televisions, tablets, smartphones). The screen sizes are to scale to help put designs in accurate and realistic context.
3. A reference chart for resolutions and device landscape.
