Quicksand - Reordering and Filtering

Quicksand lets you reorder and shuffle items with a cool animated effect. I have a feeling this will

        duration: 1000,
        easing: "easeInOutQuad",
        attribute: "data-id",

Fitted - Clickable Content Blocks

Fitted is a simple plugin for making a container clickable. This is useful when you've got quote

Usage is simple: \$('.clickable_class').fitted();
