Bit disappointed with the ending of True Detective. Some amazing bits, but so much unresolved, unexplained and a bit pat in parts too.
the true detective was... LOVE???
It's in the Houserama package of fonts from House industries. I think it's League Night.
A glorious sunset, I99 and I98 ready for the night ahead
If everyone was using Neue Haas Grotesk, I'd have much less issue with it
I think it's also some misguided sense that Helvetica is the most neutral, modern undecorated typeface
… it sounds overly simplistic, but the web-wide move to Helvetica is spurred by Apple’s iOS. Some of that is pragmatic, some is blind sheep.
As well as associated carbon emissions
Well, on the other hand, massively cuts down on heating and air conditioning bills, I guess
My brother has made a very cool app that tells you how caffeine affects your body. Check it out
Not sure that all that American Southwest stuff is totally convincing on any other metric than 'not very cold or hot'
If we're involved in another version, we'll put in some more size options for you.
Yes. But that's because it sounds a bit porny.
That little bit of brown is coffee left over from 11am YESTERDAY.
Cutest app of my life. ☕️😬
It's nice isn't it. Happens to me every so often. I get all weird and warm and a little bit sad.
Then, frankly, a really good, simple website, some funny piece of viral media and a very good online purchase flow.
Ah well, again, it all comes down to what you're actually marketing. A product to buy in shops, a link to buy something…
The concept of a twitter account for your OWN house, maybe...
Quite possibly, but you know, it's not the most gripping Twitter account and I'd be surprised if people were really into it.
Basically, a link on a web page to another web page or app will get you the most downloads or views.
BUT, I think, really the only way to reach a great number of people is via TV or radio. So if you get a lot of it...
It depends what you're after, really. My experience has been that a bit of TV or radio coverage amounts to nothing for web
"Literally every single day I come in I get in a fight with him and he says things that upset me." on
Social media too. I think I only worked out a description of that which made sense to me in the last year or so.
They all have slightly different overlapping meanings, but they also represent factional groups with associated politics.
There are a thousand names for IoT style things: Everywhere, Ubicomp, Web of things, Networked devices etc.
I really mean all this stuff in the context of Web 2.0, Internet of Things, Scrummasters, Agile etc. etc.
Absolutely. Yet simultaneously, titles change a lot for not-entirely clear reasons…
And one of the reasons that User Experience is a useful term is to assert that designers are more than stylists...
How confident are you that he won't / hasn't?
When it was something you could stick on your CV if you knew Publisher, then actual pros had to rename themselves
True, but while 'Web designer' was a new, difficult thing, people were doing IA work too.
I find that many tech terms make much more sense if you think of them as reactions to cultural trends or as power struggles
I'm not really dissing the terms or the roles, more that they're also clearly political terms rather than just descriptive
And yet someone pays $1bn for Instagram and no one even thinks of giving him the quick mental once over...
Where User Experience is at least partly an attempt to compete at the concept level with people who work in 'Product'
And then Information Architects got really technical and weird so people moved to positioning themselves as User Experience
I'm really interested in Job Role inflation over time. Like how Web Designer got debased so people became Information Architects
You've met my visible, non-fictional beard. Not my invisible, fictional one.
The beard you can SEE is neither fictional or invisible. You don't know whether I have a second invisible, fictional beard.
Or does my invisible, fictional beard have a wife!?
If you have any particularly obscure bits of linguistic cruft you'd like an interpreter for, just let me know.
Is it not an unfair advantage that she had three heads!?
@wifeofcoates Don't tell .
I've looked in all the cupboards but I can't find her.
He's not submissive! He's just nice! I'm not sure he's even a he!
Now really quite concerned that my sentient house might be having an affair with my invisible, fictional beard wife.
Just because she's invisible, counterfactual and not real doesn't mean I don't care about her.
Can you even imagine?! I imagine her sitting there in Universe B being really angry that I keep sleeping with dudes!
Well, again, it's not really a great time for us to take on interns, but I love your determination!
It's okay, ! Everything's all right! You don't have to be so sad and angry! We're all here to help cheer you up!
Gawker piece about . I sort of want to find Dayna Evans () and give her a big hug:
If we do take interns too, then we feel strongly that we should pay them and generally we'd want to advertise them.
My guess is never! I wouldn't put up information if I didn't think my house was VERY well secured.
My experience has been that mostly print, radio and TV get very little direct internet-measurable attention.
Or the irrelevance of the New York Times! More seriously, I've done loads of projects over the years and TV and this is normal
I'm not sure we're in the ideal place to take interns at the moment. Just the wrong part of our projects.
Far from it! That lets me know if there's someone in my house I don't think should be there!
And I wouldn't recommend other people advertise their comings and goings. I'm doing it because I can, and to illustrate things.
My house is well protected from the street by multiple gates and overlooked on all sides. I wouldn't do it if it were a risk.
When I lived in London, I woke up one day to find a person in my house taking my stuff. I'm *highly* conscious of security!
I've actually explained this to every interviewer that's come to see the house.
Yup just me! Bit of a slow morning today! Milling around.
The tweeting - and other high-tech home and apt. help.
Yeah, untrue. That's pretty much the only thing they got wrong
I'm not convinced Chris has a child as I have YET TO MEET HIM
I wondered why no one was on 's Minecraft server, but I think it's cos he's at SXSW or something.
If you are not looking at it, which you are, then you should look at and what she's up to, but since you are already, continue
Oh that's lovely! Thank you.
That doesn't look very practical...
If there's any chance you guys could keep hold of that copy I'd be super grateful, btw.
I feel bad for the world's smallest violinist. Everyone thinks he's being sarcastic all the time
What you've missed so far on True Detective: VIDEO
Shortly afterwards, I think she eats it.
IIRC, that picture is the one where she's sniffing and licking a dead frog.
American newspapers have a particularly idiosyncratic style. It's a bit weird. Love that there's a picture of you and, I think Poppy
In content or in typeface or in size or…?
Before it became this bizarre baroque insane thing!
I think it was more that the first two or three episodes felt weirdly like a buddy cop adventure with interesting twists
Doesn't everyone … … er … …
tge app you did is on the news
Look! It's and his magical electric puppet house in the newspaper!
Omigod Person of interest is amazing
It's pretty extraordinary as the season progresses. As is True Detective.
And yet Hannibal! Hannibal! Hannibal!
Yeah, I'll probably watch to the end of the season...
Agreed. Stunning TV show.
First episode of Season 2 was great too. I will be very sad if it doesn't get its six seasons and a movie.
On the other hand, you genuinely should be watching Hannibal. When it started it felt pretty banal, but the first season's arc was amazing.
That TV show is pretty bad. And yet I keep watching it. Just in case they decide to do something awesome with the premise.
Anyway, now my accent has almost entirely gone and I sound completely American. So that's good!
Holy shit, Borenstein. When did you get a beard?!
