Well written article by @AlexandraSchwartz in the @NewYorker on the internet’s culture of shame and it’s effect on real lives.
Nice writeup on using icons wisely by @ThomasByttebier . Good to know that using icons with text on my site was a good choice.
“Using technology to solve the problems it causes is as futile as cleaning a grass stain by rubbing grass on it.” “[…]We can think about how to shift, move, and resize the pieces so that they fall back in line with our intentions. This power is compounded for those of us who make this technology. But this is not a technological response. It is an explicit act of will—an individual’s choice to change their behaviors about what to use, where to work, what to adopt, what to pay attention to. It is simple mindfulness, that thing which needy technology makes so hard to practice. And it starts with a question: what is technology’s role in your life? And what, really, do you want from it?” — Frank Chimero, The Web’s Grain
Absolutely stunning piece of science fiction made for the @ESA_Rosetta mission by @PlatigeImage “Mankind sends a probe into space to catch a comet and land on it. And we need a great director, film and actors to convince people this is interesting.” — Lukasz Sobisz, Simulation TD, Platige Image
@benwerd @acegiak nice post! a sort of related conversation I had with @CraigMod https://twitter.com/kartik_prabhu/status/564316935001628672 Sorry my site doesn’t do chained-conversations yet so Twitter link it is!
superb series! and very glad to see Emmy Noether in there. Her work has influenced most of modern physics and math, and also a lot of what I do!
Even with my sort-of-hardline view on RSS, this post makes very good, legitimate points.
ooo very nice!
