Channel K

Welcome to Channel K.

Since we couldn’t be general managers of our local television station (or even get a cable access show like Wayne and Garth), we decided to start our own channel here. Programming will vary with a new post periodically about best practices for web design and usability, useful tips and tidbits for clients and our take on topics that get us on our soapboxes. Sound good? Feel free to subscribe via the blue box at the left to receive the newsletter version of Channel K in your inbox.

If you’ve been here before, you’ll remember Channel K as our online diversion, playground, garage and research laboratory. That’s still the case. Links to our extensive collection of games, demonstrations, proofs of concept and cool (but useless) toys are to the left. We’ll continue to post those as well for your enjoyment. One warning – Channel K requires all the latest and greatest browser plug-ins. If you have the goods, come on in. We’ll try not to crash your browser.

You see, we intentionally do not offer hosting […]

The Yahoo – Bing Partnership and its Implications for SEO

The potential impact on your site’s search engine traffic largely depends on any ranking discrepancy between Yahoo and Bing. Yahoo announced this week that Microsoft’s Bing now powers all of its U.S. and Canadian organic (non-paid) search results. The Bing engine will now account for 28 percent of searches, compared to Google’s 62 percent. For businesses actively […]

Text Relay Services for Hearing/Speech Impaired

Ever the accessibility torch bearers, the Kinetic Crew recently discovered a fantastic new website feature that is making life a bit easier for hearing/speech impaired callers. What is text relay?
