  • Posted to Ask DN: Login - external or popup?, Dec 01, 2014

    I usually prefer a separate page so then you can go directly to that address. Alternatively a hash address which automatically triggers the login popup could work too.

    Writing your own isn’t that tricky if you’re happy using jquery. JQuery load is where you want to be looking/learning.

    Be sure to check for unminified versions of js files on sites you like. That Generation Press one is a beaut and their js is clearly visible. Looks like there using pjax to handle the ajaxing and page history.

    The ‘Built With’ chrome extension too is always worth a persue.

    Interesting piece.

    Giving away free shit wins, right? Unsplash is an amazing resource but do individuals submit work for the exposure alone and are they aware what they’re getting themselves in for? I think I’d know how I’d feel if I saw some large corporation using one of my shots as the centrepiece of their marketing campaign. Very possible scenario given their current license.

    Interesting how they’ve copyrighted the ‘presentation and collection’ of the images though. Wonder what that specifically means.

    The model is good but I’ve found pricing strategy/structure is usually down to the company’s service being aimed at general or professional consumption.

    Analysing either of these types side-by-side is usually what also gives me that feeling of mounting subscription costs.

    For example: Netflix !== Flatsies (I pay only marginally more for Netflix than I do for Flatsies despite Netflix being a substantially more impressive technical and logistical feat)

    The difference being, one is for general consumption and one professional. There are far fewer people mocking up website screens in browser than there are watching TV. So, in order to justify the production of their services they tailor pricing to suit their audience.

    Another point to note is that companies more and more are offering services not products. Would you go to your local Car Wash and pay a one-time-only fee for the rest of your life to ensure you could get a Car Wash whenever you needed?

    Life could get expensive very quickly should we go down the ‘product’ pricing of day-to-day services path.

    I think the underlying point you have is that as a sole practitioner working in the digital realm and requiring both personal and professional digital services the costs mount and feel as if they’re coming in as one large collective sum but in fact mentally they should be thought of as two; work and pleasure :)
