The Visual Telling of Stories samplers
"Welcome to Chris Mullen's website, The Visual Telling of Stories. You can go to the main gate or shuffle about in the Samplers till you get some hang of the place. It was started in 1996. Material is added every day. It is far bigger than you could ever imagine. I don't blame you for backing out, with a polite cough. I'll never know."

"There is no simple way to synthesize a user’s perception of an image loading over time. We are driven by the gut feeling that showing earlier is better, even if it’s not the final content, though some users will disagree.

As developers, we need to measure performance. It’s the only way we can set targets to improve it, and know when we don’t meet a performance budget."
