Going rogue - Jeremy Keith

now we’re into slippery slopes and glass houses. One person might draw the line at creating a Muslim registry.

It’s moral relativism all the…

I think the real…

Inclusive Design Patterns - Heydon Pickering

The more complex, daunting and exciting the task gets to make something work on an unknown number of devices, for users with a wide range of technical, physical and mental capabilities in an…

As a kid, I could spend whole afternoons drawing circles around a circle, and add new circles at each intersection of the circles already drawn, gradually…
