Want readers to start trusting you again? Stop stalking them across the internet - poynter.org

(…) trust must also involve thinking thoughtfully about the platforms and tools we use to track readers, measure behavior and determine how to monetize. It must involve thinking about the data we collect — or let others collect — and then what could be done with that data. In other words, trust is something that needs to be strengthened not just on the editorial side of a newsroom, but in the advertising and technical departments as well.poynter.org

Where Does The Design Agency Go From Here? - Paul Woods/Edo van Dijk

(…) Design is no longer just about design.
Design doesn’t mean making visual solutions. Digital doesn’t mean being a web monkey, producing only websites and apps. Such developments as the rise of artificial intelligence, screenless design and accessibility to great website-building tools like Squarespace mean that the agency that interprets digital design as “making websites and apps” is going to be out of business—and soon. To provide relevant design solutions, the modern agency needs to have business consultancy, copywriting, technology and analytics capabilities under one roof, and most important, these capabilities have to work together—not in silos.commarts.com

12 Years Blogrocking the Web

Happy Birthday, dear blog: your first post was published in August, 24th 2005.
That's like one hundred internet-years, and so you are about two years older than the twitter 'hashtag' (#) invention.
And you are still my favorite place to try out new technologies, to rant about the oddities of my daily adventures and recently to share some of the experiences and solutions from my daily work with this web thing, and writing more and more in english, because I'm one of those pseudo-international hipsters now, you know.

love,
Tom

The web as a material

The concepts of apprenticeship and mastership seem to not apply on the Web. When it comes to building a house, you will search for a trusted architect and carpenter, and you'll measure their credibility by means of their experience, which in turn will be a matter of the time they spent exercising their craft. On the Web, even the 16-year-old nephew of your neighbour seems to be able of doing the job. Developers tend to call themselves "engineers" without being aware of the public responsibility that this title used to come along with.

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 mind. Some people—like me—read it and think, “this is clearly wrong and harmful.” Other people—who would never self-identify as sexist in any way—read it and think, “seems legit.” I’m almost—almost—glad that it was written. It’s bringing a lot of buried biases into the light.(…)

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 sites have even been caught displaying different prices to different customers based on a variety of potential factors, including one’s browsing history. Believe it or not, the rabbit hole goes deeper—the device that you’re using to search the web can influence results that come

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 involves writing layout code twice and with an already established method out there […] It's another manifestation of the huge shift we see in contemporary web design: the decision making largely happens in development, at the end of the good old waterfall and

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. Adobe will continue to support Flash on a number of major OSs and browsers that currently support Flash content through the planned EOL. This will include issuing regular security patches, maintaining OS and browser compatibility and adding features and capabilities as needed. We remain fully committed to working with partners,

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, give some sites an advantage over others, or split the Internet into "fast lanes" for companies that pay and "slow lanes" for the rest.

Now is not the time to let giant ISPs censor what we see and do online.(...)
