2008 has been an eventful year to say the least – it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. That said, I will try to do what I’ve done with other photo narratives here, and tell a story of 2008 in photographs. It’s not the story of 2008, it’s certainly not all stories, but as a collection it does show a good portion of what life has been like over the past 12 months.

Macromedia Flash & ajax, by default, has lacking seo features as there is, normally, only 1 url address for all the contents within these web applications.
SWFAddress is a small, but powerful library that provides deep linking for Flash and Ajax. It’s a developer tool, allowing creation of unique virtual URLs that can point to a website section or an application state. SWFAddress enables a number of important capabilities which are missing in today’s rich web technologies including:
- Bookmarking in a browser or social website
- Sending links via email or instant messenger
- Finding specific content with the major search engines
- Utilizing browser history and reload buttons
Ajaxify is a jQuery plugin that converts all links in a web page into Ajax load-submit requests.
So, with a single line, you can turn a static website into an Ajaxed one.
It has support for:
- History & bookmarking
- Partial load from the output
- Four events
In the demos page of Ajaxify, there are lots of examples presented to get you going with it.

oConomy: Live info & charts on global outsourcing trends in Pakistan. View trends by skill, industry growth and popular IT & admin providers
Pakistan is a hot new offshore information technology destination because of a combination of favorable economic circumstances. Funds invested into building educational institutions in Pakistan (when there were not enough jobs to absorb all the graduates from those institutions) are paying off as Pakistan begins to field a modern, highly productive labor force that is the envy of more prosperous but less tech savvy nations elsewhere in the region. Pakistan has a large English-speaking population and a huge community of emigres with experience in technology. It has a culture that values education and hard work. Pakistan may face a shortage of IT workers. Over 75,000 people work in the sector today, and the government believes a further 7,000 will be needed each year to keep the industry growing at current rates.
