PSA for all the butthurt drivers out there who can’t take constructive criticism from the pedestrians they’ve just put in danger: When you insult and make fun of me for wearing a bike helmet, it only makes you look like that much more of an idiot for putting me in danger.

Stay classy San Diego 🙄

It's an interesting feeling to be homesick when home is no longer a place... when home is instead a distributed network of friends flung across the globe.

Just spent a wonderful week in London and brought back the following books from the Tate’s excellent selection and from London Design Week:

- “A Designer’s Research Manual” by Jenn & Ken Visocky O’Grady
- “Beauty” by Sagmeister & Walsh
- “Computational Thinking” by Peter J. Denning & Matti Tedre
- London Design Festival 2019 guidebook

If I had all the time in the world, I'd probably waste it trying to strategize what to do with it.

There’s nothing that irks me more than inattentive asshole drivers who proceed to yell and heckle the pedestrians whom they’ve nearly hit. It’s a regular occurrence for me, and makes it hard to stick by not wanting to own a car here. Stay classy San Diego 🙄

Mental models are representation of how something works. We can’t keep all of the details of the world in our brains, so we use models to simplify the complex into understandable and organizable chunks.

I was unexpectedly promoted to Creative Director at work last week.

@universal_traveler I have so many accounts from the late 90s, early 00s that I never consciously stopped using or canceled, but my usage just fell lower on the priority until I just stopped. Several web forums come to mind, and at least one is still running, and last I checked my account is still there. It is both good and bad. My gmail account is approaching 15 years old. But I would rather forget my posts on from even an older time on :cringe:

One of my favorite McLuhan insights is that form doesn't just follow function, form *is* function.

TIL that you can set two (or more) background images for the same container in and my day just got so much better 😌
