Adding Stroke to Web Text is a great post at CSS-Tricks.
Examples of Colour Blindness in Games from scenariogirl is equally great.
The Power of Mobile from Pew Research is full of quotable tidbits. Here are a couple:
Mobile was the final front in the access revolution. It has erased the digital divide. A mobile device is the internet for many people. Access isn’t the point anymore. It’s what people are doing with the access that matters.

Mobile devices are changing us, once again, as internet users, making us more likely to share, more likely to access information on the go, and, as I mentioned, erasing the digital divide. Once information is untethered, the oceans part and the landscape changes. We are now on the other side of a massive shift in communications.
In 10 years we have seen the internet go from a slow, stationary, information vending machine to a fast, mobile, communications appliance that fits in your pocket. Information has become portable, personalized, and participatory.
In fact, as we have watched the rise of wireless access, we’ve identified an effect that we’re calling “the mobile difference.”
You could write a whole Ph.D. thesis on this sentence alone, “Once information is untethered, the oceans part and the landscape changes.”
