One Right Answer

Sad: Every baffled new parent goes searching for answers in baby manuals. But what they really offer is the reassuring fantasy that life’s most difficult questions have one right answer. Sad… but true. Even as we walk through our 3rd newborn… Google is just a few clicks away to answer every burning question that we might have. Ooph: I knew all these things – but what I didn’t yet understand was the diabolical genius of the baby-advice industry, which targets people at their most sleep-deprived, at the beginning of what will surely be the weightiest responsibility of their lives, and suggests that maybe, just maybe, between the covers of this book, lies the morsel of information that will make the difference between their baby’s flourishing or floundering. The brilliance of this system is that it works on the most sceptical readers, too, because you don’t need to believe it’s likely…

Shipping system fonts to GitHub.com

System font stacks got hot about a year ago, no doubt influenced by Mark Otto’s work putting them live on GitHub. The why, to me, feels like (1) yay performance and (2) the site looks like the rest of the operating system. But to Mark: Helvetica was created in 1957 when the personal computer was a pipe dream. Arial was created in 1982 and is available on 95% of computers across the web. Millions, if not billions, of web pages currently use this severely dated font stack to serve much younger content to much younger browsers and devices. As display quality improves, so too must our use of those displays. System fonts like Apple’s San Francisco and Microsoft’s Segoe aim to do just that, taking advantage of retina screens, dynamic kerning, additional font-weights, and improved readability. If operating systems can take advantage of these changes, so too can our CSS.…

The “Fuck Scene” in The Wire

The variations used in this scene are amazing to watch: Jonathan Abrams shares the details on how this scene came together: David comes up to us and describes a scene. He says, “You’re going to go to the scene. You’re going to realize that [the previous] detective, he did a bad job. Wendell, you’re going to see the photos of the girl. Dominic, you’re going to start getting the stats, looking at what the report was. Going back over, you’re going to realize it’s impossible to have gone down the way it was reported, because the guy would have to be like eight feet tall to get that trajectory. If he did, then something must be left in here, and you’re looking for any evidence that may be around, and Wendell, you discover that there’s a shot through the window. The glass is on the inside. It means it came…

CSS Basics: Fallback Font Stacks for More Robust Web Typography

In CSS, you might see a ruleset like this: html { font-family: Lato, “Lucida Grande”, Tahoma, Sans-Serif; } What the heck, right? Why don’t I just tell it what font I want to use and that’s that? The whole idea here is fallbacks. The browser will try to use the font you specified first (Lato, in this case), but if it doesn’t have that font available, it will keep going down that list. So to be really verbose here, what that rule is saying is: I’d like to use the Lato font here, please. If you don’t have that, try “Lucida Grande” next. If you don’t have that, try Tahoma. All else fails, use whatever you’ve got for the generic keyword Sans-Serif So in what situation would a browser not have the font you’re asking for? That’s pretty common. There are only a handful of fonts that are considered “web…

Your Sketch library is not a design system redux

I really like this post by Brad Frost about what is and isn’t a design system, particularly when he de-emphasizes the importance of tools when it comes to that sort of work : …components living inside static design tools like Sketch isn’t itself a design system. Pardon my clickbait. Perhaps a better title would have been “Your Sketch library is not a(n entire) design system.” No doubt tools like Sketch are super valuable, and having a set of reusable components inside them helps design teams establish thoughtful and consistent UIs. However, a Sketch library is just one piece of the design system puzzle. A design system also can include other puzzle pieces like: Design principles UX guidelines Development guidelines Coded UI components Component guidelines, usage, and details Page templates User flows Design tools Dev tooling Code repositories Voice and tone guidelines Implementation guides Contribution processes Team structure Resources (internal and…

Saying It Aloud

I’ve made the tough but important decision to kill a project just before it goes live. That project… sniff sniff… is George. I’ve been working on this ToDo List app actively since June / July of last year but it’s been part of my general psyche for many, many years. But, the reason that I’ve decided to kill the project is because I simply do not have the time, energy, and emotional bandwidth to release it to the wild and then support it actively to the community that deserves that support. And, if I’m to be completely honest, I’m just not that interested in working on it when I’m so heavily involved with building out projects in the bitcoin and blockchain space. I think I made the decision a while ago but it took a bit of time for my heart to catch up with my head. Like most projects, this one…
