Tasty tutorials and network effects

Tasty tutorials and network effects. Mike Pick's sweet little tutorial on Pull Quotes and the Web, and Hebig.org's CSS trickery in “About the Title Pictures” will not only repay your interest, but the existence of material of this quality on independent personal sites also says a great deal about the rise of entrepreneurial authorship among designers. It also shows how network effects have succeeded at decentralizing the medium, as was intended from the day the web was created.
