Flickr takes a step forward with a new interface and a timeline

Flickr began rolling out a new feature called Camera Roll today, PetaPixel reports. The update, now testing in beta, features a sleeker interface that allows users to browse, edit, and organize their photos with greater ease.

Camera Roll lives up to its name by allowing users to view all of their photos in a fluid stream organized by date. Users can choose to arrange images by date taken or date uploaded, and scroll smoothly from their most recent photos at the start of the roll, to their oldest photos at the end.

Another big update is the addition of a timeline, pictured above. When users click on a year shown on the left-hand side of the page, the year expands into 12 months, allowing users to jump back and forth in time…

The Web Form Design Awards: Do You Have What It Takes?

When we tinker around with our website, and manage to build something cool, it’s natural to want to show it off. JotForm, a user-friendly website form builder, is hosting the Web Form Design Awards where you can do just that. Creating things is fun in and of itself, I remember the glory days of using basic HTML to make Myspace layouts. When you landed on my page, a soundtrack started playing and tacky animated stars shot through the purple “sky.” It was pretty bad, and I’ve seen some equally bad forms online. Luckily, even terrible forms have a shot at winning prizes and receiving the honor of the Worst Form Award.

Two days into accepting submissions for the Web Form Design Awards 2014 and over 1,000 submissions deep, the design community has really embraced the opportunities that the contest brings. Entrants have the chance to get their form evaluated by notable judges that have been successful and innovative in their fields, from executive editors of top magazines to product designers from renowned companies.

To join the contest, entrants use the recently launched Form Designer, an inventive new tool that lets even a technology novice easily create a polished form in minutes without coding or design knowledge. That expertise is implemented within the tool itself, in an exceptionally user-friendly format that is essentially point-and-click. More experienced web designers will be able to add CSS manually if they choose, creating fully customizable and original forms that have all the bells and whistles that they desire, including animation and special effects.

The grand prize of $ 7500 will be awarded to the Best Form, along with a lifetime JotForm Professional subscription. Other prizes include $ 500 awarded to each winner of the six additional categories: Best Mobile Form, Best Survey, Best Contact Form, Best e-Commerce Form, User’s Choice, and the amusing Worst Form category. No doubt people are working hard to create the most terrible form that they can come up with, complete with garish color schemes and eighties-style graphics. There are numerous additional prizes, and all awardees will receive a lifetime JotForm Professional membership!

Forms are some of the most integral and useful components of any website, and have been underappreciated for too long. The Web Form Design Awards celebrates quality (and awful in the best way!) forms and recognizes creative JotForm users that have taken forms to an elevated level.

CIA takes to Twitter to separate ‘Argo’ fact from fiction

Argo may have been the darling of the 2013 Oscars, but there’s no denying that the Ben Affleck-directed film stretched reality to achieve its dramatic highs. For the 35th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis, the CIA launched into an impressive “real vs. reel” tweetstorm highlighting where the film’s story departed from the true hostage rescue operation. As you might expect, the dramatic airport sequence is a complete fabrication, but there’s no hard feelings — we all know it takes a little magic to make movies. And the tweets once again prove that the CIA is pretty great at Twitter.
