You’ve chosen: #whatpaulshouldsee when he comes back online tonight

In case you’re wondering what this graphic means: One year ago today, Verge writer Paul Miller quit the internet for a full year. In three hours, he’s rejoining the memetic forces, in an event that The Verge is milking tonight, big time. Because hey, why not? Anyway, people voted that the first thing he sees when he rejoins the ‘net is the Harlem Shake. Let’s introduce him in style right?

A visual comparison of every jumbotron in the NFL

Cowboys Stadium currently boasts the largest jumbotron in the NFL — a behemoth of an LED measuring 160 feet wide and 72 feet tall — but how does Dallas’ Texas-sized display compare to the rest of the NFL’s set ups? That’s the question that graphic designer Daniel Beaton set out to answer with a straightforward infographic.


The Vikings’ jumbotron is basically a 27-inch TV.

Happening now: Microsoft’s top-secret product launch. That’s Steve Ballmer, above. No word on what it is, but this screenshot seems to suggest the depressingly-killed Courier is making a comeback.
EDIT: Nope, their once-table-sized Surface tablet is getting a reboot as a Windows 8 tablet.

We’re going to stop blinking for a year.

In honor of the apparent internet version of lent, which involves a Verge writer giving up the Internet for a year, and this funny parody, we’ve decided to give up blinking for a year, so we don’t miss anything. Here’s SFB editor Ernie Smith getting his last few blinks in. 

Blinking

We’ll let you know how it goes.

First, congrats on the launch. This is really impressive design. There is a lot going on here. You will not be bored by the info here. Buuuuuuuuuut … is this too far from the roots of the technology blog of lore? This is a format that seems heavily tied to the front page, far afield from we’re used to seeing from Joshua Topolsky joints. (See: Engadget.) The real question to ask here, and one that’s worth asking: Is this what Web design should be in November 2011 — a big picture, scroll-heavy, eyes-all-over-the-place mish-mash? No, we shouldn’t be limited to the blog format, which certainly has its limits. But in an era where we read links on a Twitter feed and stories in Instapaper, isn’t this a style we’re moving away from? We love the ambition. There are great ways in which the SB Nation engine really shines (see how it handles this HP timeline, for example, or the cleanness of the product review listings). We wish it pulled back just a little in a couple of places, though. Sometimes, the eyes need a break.

We like to think that Siri is really Steve Jobs, in AI form. Also, this site is the funniest thing on the internet today, by far.
