To mock-up the user interface of a website, software or any other product, you’ll need some basic UI elements. And this is where wireframing kits and UI design kits come in handy. When you want to create a low-fidelity prototype for your projects, you can use these kits to give your idea a certain shape, keeping it abstract and not losing yourself in details.

Now about the voting…..
No this isn’t about the tea partiers no matter how hillariously misguided they might be, this is about the 2010 Major League All Star Game which I just voted for. What follows is who I voted for and why, I hope you enjoy.
So why did I vote for who I voted for?
Well normally I despise all star voting in April as it’s too early in the season, but I made a mistake this time since the Angels are hosting. Yes I am a homer, and my voting shows that.
Now I want to be open and honest, I didn’t research this at all, I just shot from the hip. And, when the AL team left me scratching my head I just went with the Angels in most cases.
With the formalities out of the way here’s who I voted for and why.
1B – Kendry Morales – Angels
He’s not having a very hot beginning of the season but then again I don’t know of any AL first baseman who I like who are. That’s not to say I don’t like Kevin Youkilis or Mark Teixera, I just hate their teams.
2B – Howie Kendrick – Angels
Howie is by far the hottest hitter on the Angels and the most clutch player they have not named Hideki Matsui. This wasn’t a homer type vote, I’ve just been that impressed.
SS – Erick Aybar – Angels
He may not be spectacular so far this year but he’s been very solid and so far he’s making us not miss Chone Figgins. So it’s a homer vote just not a huge one.
3B – Evan Longoria – Rays
Need I say more? I don’t know his stats and I’ve only seen about one AB this year but Evan impresses every time I see him. And, he isn’t named ARod, nor is he linked to steroids.
DH – Hideki Matsui – Angels
All he does is hit, especially in pressure situations. He’s also made the loss of Vladimir Guerrero barely noticeable.
OF – Nelson Cruz – Rangers
He’s been hitting for average and power and stealing some bases for Texas, as an Angels fan he scares me.
OF – Franklin Gutierrez – Mariners
On a team that hasn’t been playing incredible baseball he’s been Seattle’s lone bright spot, all while playing spectacular defense, like Cruz he scares me.
OF – Austin Jackson – Tigers
As a rookie a top the Tigers order he’s played incredibly well. High average, solid defense and I believe a nice little hitting streak.
C – Jeff Mathis – Angels
Mathis has been the starter so far this year for the Halos and for a guy who’s primarily known for defense he has outperformed all offensive expectations. It’s hard to not vote for Joe Mauer but Mathis is finally playing like we all expected he could.
1B – Albert Pujols – Cardinals
He is so talented, he makes me feel bad for Adrian Gonzalez who would start every All Star game if not for Albert.
2B – Chase Utley – Phillies
He’s always a great player and he’s local. I have no idea what his stats are but he’s a great player.
SS – Hanley Ramirez – Marlins
One of the best 5 tool players period.
3B – ????? – ?????
I have no idea how I missed this one.
C – Bengie Molina – Giants
No one stood out to me so I went with the Angels old catcher who’s always solid in San Francisco.
OF – Jason Heyward – Braves
He has shown why he was the number 1 prospect in baseball. This is more a vote for his future than how he’s playing now.
OF – Matt Kemp – Dodgers
It pains me to vote for a Dodger but he’s been that good.
OF – Andrew McCutchen – Pirates
He’s the brightest spot on a team full of possible surprising players. Truth be told however, no matter how good McCutchen is, I just forgot to vote for Andre Ethier.
So there you have it, vote early and vote often everyone, I know I will.

Anyone working in large web projects in collaboration with many people at the same time will see the consecuences of many hands on style files. May selectors and classes come and go while developing and testing. After a while, you will easily see style files that become untouchable: you don't know which classes or selectors are being used or not. The same uncertainty creeps in when you maintain someone else's site.

A common feature I've seen on “web 2.0” sites and wikis is the "external link" icon: external link. While I'm not crazy about the idea of sticking these little images all over the HTML, they're a great candidate for using progressive enhancement. In our case, we can use jQuery to add the images pretty easily.
