How to Build an Atomic Bomb - Mike Monteiro @ Beyond Tellerrand Düsseldorf 2018

view this directly on vimeo

Wow. It was on the historical date of May 8th, that Mike Monteiro held this intense talk, reminding each and everyone who cared to listen of the conseqences and the possible impacts of the "I'm only doing my job here" mentality.

This talk gave me several goose bumps, having seen "5 came back" only recently, and still seeing this one shot of the inside of a german concentration camp, where right after the allied troops went in, a film team documented not only the unimaginable horror and piles of dead and starving ...

The indieweb privacy challenge (webmentions, silo backfeeds, and the GDPR) - Sebastian Greger

A thorough article on the current challenges, technically and ethically, regarding the use of elsewhere published public data that can be regarded as 'personal data' in the GDPR/DSGVO sense. Data that will be published for example by pulling in likes, shares and comments posted on Twitter here in my blog, as 'reactions' alongside with 'real' comments on my posts.

As Sebastian writes

Just the fact that I can aggregate a “facepile” showcasing everybody who clicked “like” on a tweet of mine does not mean that my motivations for doing so are more important than their right to stay in control

The Illusion of Control in Web Design - Aaron Gustafson

Recognizing all of the ways our carefully-crafted experiences can be rendered unusable can be more than a little disheartening. No one likes to spend their time thinking about failure. So don’t. Don’t focus on all of the bad things you can’t control. Focus on what you can control.
Start simply. Code defensively. User-test the heck out of it. Recognize the chaos. Embrace it. And build resilient web experiences that will work no matter what the internet throws at them.alistapart.com

WorkingDraft Rev. 336 zur DSGVO

Podcast mit Sebastian ("the designer"), Balthasar ("the lawyer"), Joschi ("the developer") und Hans ("the host"), zum Thema Nummer Eins, das gerade für große Verunsicherung in meiner Web- und Kundenblase sorgt, natürlich kurz vor Ablauf der Deadline.

Anhören!

Nach meiner persönlichen und sicherlich nicht repräsentativen Erfahrung haben die wenigsten Kunden/Webseitenbetreiber eine Idee davon, was da alles mit inkrafttreten der DSGVO zum 25.5.2018 getan werden muss, um unfallfrei durch die zu erwartende Abmahnwelle durchzukommen. Datenschutzerklärungen, Auftragsdatenverarbeitungsverträge, Verfahrensverzeichnisse… nicht wirklich hilfreich ist, dass nun, kurz vor knapp, natürlich auch aus allen Ecken teils widersprüchliche Tips und Empfehlungen kommen und derzeit viele Angebote, Generatoren ...

Drüben beim Illustratoren-Alter-Ego gibts eine hybsche Frühlingspostkarte zu erstehen. #justsayin ;-)

Schöne Ostern, Ihr Herzchen.

We should work toward a universal linked information system, in which generality and portability are more important than fancy graphics techniques and complex extra facilities.www.w3.org

… warum zur Hölle darf ich mich auch in 2018 noch immer mit "Gestaltern" rumschlagen, die nicht verstehen (wollen), dass Design für Web wesentlich mehr ist, als schöne Screens zu entwerfen?

The Laws of UX

A very neat collection of (web) design principles , such as "Jacob's Law":

"Users spend most of their time on other sites. This means that users prefer your site to work the same way as all the other sites they already know."

Laws of UX is a collection of the key maxims that designers must consider when building user interfaces.lawsofux.com

Matthias Ott: Saving your web workflows with prototyping

Oh, Matthias did it again: Publishing one of his thorough articles on the challenges of designing/working with "the web".
It is again one of those articles that I'd wished to have written myself, because it echoes my thoughts (and my frustration) about the unfitting ways I am forced to work in when I'm doing client or agency-work. This feeling of not using the medium to its full potential, because the people involved in "the job" are focussing on the superficial and visual aspects only. The frustration about always having to fight for lean and performant solutions, and the nagging feeling ...
