As a freelance writer, it seems like I’m always sending my resume out. Sometimes this causes some issues, usually with file compatability. I try to send a PDF, but this doesn’t always eradicate the problems and my resume isn’t always viewed the way it’s meant to be. Due to these issues, I’ve been searching for different ways to put my resume online. Simply hosting and displaying the PDF online is an obvious option, but I’ve also discovered a number of services which allow you to place your resume information online in unique ways.
Vizualize.me is one of these services, an app which allows you to produce an infographic style resume. You start by filling in the sections present in the app (things like education and skills), then choose a theme and save. It’s a simple and straightforward service with some fun customization options and pretty cool results. Stick with me after the jump to see the kind of things you can create with Visualize.me.
I don’t know about you, but when I am looking for a desktop wallpaper, I look for something that will make my desktop look nice and clean. Simple, not a lot going on, the image usually askew to one side to leave room on the other for icons, etc. This was especially important when I decided to geek-out my desktop using Geek Tool. I wanted to round up some of the nicer minimalist wallpapers out there (with a webapps twist, of-course!). Take a look after the jump!
Today Google announced a new and exciting[?] image format, called WebP (pronounced “weppy”), with hopes of improving the web by reducing image sizes and in turn also reducing the massive amounts of data that flow through data centers such as Google’s.
While this likely won’t affect the average internet user any time soon, it has the potential to make significantly important changes, especially with Google’s push and massive web influence. So what, more specifically, is WebP and why should you care? Read on to find out.
