"Many media agencies still have a division between graphic designers and front end coders. Creative types produce a lovely set of visuals in Photoshop, then pass these on to technical types to convert into HTML/CSS.

This causes problems at the build stage, particularly in the case of more complex layouts that require liquid behaviour."

|1546:|| Confirmed: Twitter Acquires Tweetdeck|
I am extremely happy and proud to let you know that TweetDeck has been acquired by Twitter. We completed the deal on Tuesday and are now in the process of "joining the flock".[br][br]The past three years have been an epic journey, with many highs and lows, accompanied by the constant thrill of never really knowing what to expect next. We've grown from one team member and a single user, to a team of fifteen and a user-base of millions. The reason for this growth is simple, our unwavering focus on providing high-quality tools and services for the Twitter-centric power-user. This has always been our core audience, the most active, influential and valuable users of Twitter and social media in general. Quality over quantity.[br][br]It is precisely for this reason that Twitter has acquired TweetDeck. The mainstream Twitter user-base is well catered for by twitter.com and the official mobile clients. And by becoming part of the official platform, TweetDeck will now fill that role for brands, influencers, the highly active and anyone that just needs "more power".

|1548:|| Confusion and Chaos in the Search Space|
POINT: I don't claim to fully understand the product, and the clients definately don't understand it, nor do they have the time and patience. They're still trying to get their heads around putting keywords in title tags. That's their level. COUNTERPOINT: Confusion makes our jobs easier. It also makes Search Engine Marketing an easier SELL! If it was too easy, then anyone could do it. Companies are looking for SEM partners to lead them through the mess.
