Ajax Summit: Adam Michela from axentric.com
He's working on Wists, a visual bookmarking tool. He also has an Ajax blog that has special Ajax features.
He then demonstrated his own fade technique for his blog. He showed how his fade library could fade any arbitrary element of the DOM. He pointed out how his fade technique page was linked to a large number of times.
Alex: You can clear the color afterwards.
Adam: (didn't quite catch what he said)
Dunstan: It's tricky stuff, isn't it?
(some guy): So what's the value of the fade anything technique?
Kevin: It's attention focusing. It draws attention to something that's changing.
Dunstan: I use it on page reload to draw attention as well.
Adam: It's interesting how these dhtml effects are getting drawn into the Ajax bandwagon.
