Intolerable - Jeremy Keith

Link to post Intolerable - Jeremy Keith

Spot-on about that ex-googler's "manifesto" and its layers of reasonability around an intolerable core. (…) It may seem odd that a document that appears to be so reasonable is proving to be so very divisive. But it’s that very appearance of impartiality that gives it its power. It is like an optical illusion for the…

Link to post Why You Should Fly Under The Radar When Booking A Trip - Mozilla Blog

To start, if you use the web to find cheap flights, you might notice an uptick in web ads for the routes you just searched for. These results aren’t just influenced by what you look up and buy online, but include related sites—even online publications where you get your news and celebrity gossip. Some e-commerce…


Resolving CSS Gridlock - Matthias Ott

Link to post Resolving CSS Gridlock - Matthias Ott

Very good thoughts on the state of our ever evolving playfield and how to yield the power that CSS-grid can bring –– in times when there still are old processes, browsers and mindsets around. […] Just because people can use CSS Grid theoretically doesn’t mean they will actually use it in practice, especially if this…

Link to post Flash and the future of interactive content - Adobe

Adobe has announced that they will end support for Flash in 2020. Several industries and businesses have been built around Flash technology – including gaming, education and video – and we remain committed to supporting Flash through 2020, as customers and partners put their migration plans into place.

We are Team Internet

Link to post We are Team Internet

This is a battle for the Internet's future. On July 12, 2017, thousands of us are protesting to defend Internet freedom. (…) The FCC's Open Internet Rules (net neutrality rules) are extremely important to me. I urge you to protect them. I don't want ISPs to have the power to block websites, slow them down,…


Breaking Out Of The Tetris Mindset - Christian Heilmann @ Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2017

Tetronimos by Christian Heilmann

The Beyond Tellerrand Conference keynote by Christian Heilmann resonates with me, much. I'd never thought being seen as a 'conservative blocker on the right', but obviously, when it comes to the foundational layers of building stuff for the web, I find myself more on the right side of Chris' block chain (although the 'square' would…


The new oil

Anselm just published a response* to NYT's "The Big Five tech companies increasingly dominate our lives. Could you ditch them?" quiz. His personal results seem to be quite similar to what I'd find out. Ditching Apple for example would be way harder for me as, say, ditching Facebook - which I already try to avoid…

I'm sitting in the office, teary-eyed and listening to this voice, that meant so much to me.

Sliding underline

Link to post Sliding underline

In a current project, the designer asked if we could add a little gimmick to the horizontal navigation, which consists of just a few one-level items. Of course the idea is visual-, desktop-, and mouse-input-device-centric, and a discussion about other devices and the resulting state of the navigation ensued, and we agreed to treat this…

Link to post Fix missing/changed paths to font files in Linotype FontExplorerX

Disclaimer: (Don't you love it when a blog post starts with a disclaimer? yeah, me too…) The things I'm about to describe worked in my setting, and since I - Use an outdated version of FontExplorerX (1.2.3) and - Use an outdated version of MacOS X (10.9.5) this may very well not work for your…


On Design Tools and Processes - Viljami Salminen

Link to post On Design Tools and Processes - Viljami Salminen

For the past year(s) I’ve been chasing for answers. Looking for new tools, thinking about design processes and figuring out what design really means to me. At times I’ve felt so disconnected with our pro­cesses that I’ve wondered if my career choice was right. For a field rooted in the fine arts this period of…
