I accept that I will not understand all the math in this book. But learning the concepts makes my brain feel good and they fundamentally apply to me as someone who solves problems using design and code. https://t.co/uDQmcD99oL
Bummed about the video quality... 😣
I created a design token plugin for @figmadesign that will hopefully be available soon! If you don’t like the cheeky design don’t despair, there’s a minimal mode too. #figmaplugin https://t.co/pxlRpey52Y
My kid’s doctor can’t email me a copy of his immunization record, but I can go pick it up from the office without any proof of identify. 🤷‍♂️
What to read next? A book on Shannon’s Information Theory or Simon’s The Sciences of the Artificial? @Rob_Reid I just discovered the episode of your podcast where you mention the universe splitter app, maybe I should let it decide then I’ll read both at the same time!

I absolutely love this exchange between @MinaMarkham and @zeldman where they discuss the challenge of putting yourself out there and "having a voice" in the tech/design industry. It's not about being a source of authority, it's about sharing knowledge. overcast.fm/+I__p2-aM/53:46
In Hangouts when you tap a link and select “Open in Safari” it actually opens the App Store to the Google app. If you then go back to Hangouts and tap the link again you see the working “Open in Safari” option. #shadyux https://t.co/M1yIO8LEQb

Is the Bluetooth protocol janky, or iOS’s implementation, or is it just my phone? When I explicitly connect to a specific speaker, my phone spends the rest of its waking days instead dropping and connecting to a different speaker in range.

Finally watching @tucaandbertie and I love it from beak to toe. The characters, the design, the different animation styles, all the little details...so goooood! “Eat the ghost cake! Eat the ghost cake!”
We spent a reflective day with @eji_org at museumandmemorial.eji.org Please support their work if you can. The intent of slavery never went away, it was rebranded through new laws. If we choose to look away and remain complacent we keep its evil heart alive.

If you enjoy Stardew Valley but feel like it doesn’t have enough embalming and talking skulls then I highly recommend Graveyard Keeper.
Even worse, since it happens mid-swipe I don’t know what I deleted. And since it’s a Gmail account the deleted email is just gone. I can’t go into the trash to see if what I lost was important.
This happens all the time: I’m deleting the first email in the list while the mail app is refreshing and I end up deleting the new email because it replaces the one I’m currently swiping. Maddening UX issue. #isitjustme
Intro to CompSci, Class 3 in which hex and color representation was discussed along with data types & variables...also live coding and debugging with @p5xjs @utsdct
Intro to CompSci, Class 2 is in the books. We learned to translate decimal to binary, discussed algorithms, and started writing code with @p5xjs I hope the students had as much fun as I did! #brainoverload @utsdct
