Slipping away.

You know those (usually) horizontal strips of thumbnails that slide left and right across the top or bottom of the screen activated by a mouse, needing a click or, worst of all, running automatically? They're the architectural version of those horrid running texts on tv news shows. You can see the attractions. Here is movement without having to spend on animation. You can devise interesting ways of controlling the speed and direction and irritate those not gifted with manual dexterity by making thumbnails dodge, speed past or ignore the cursor.

Sutherland Lyall on the joys or otherwise of thumbnails and blogs.
