This is fun!
The way to look at remote work is that it’s a series of tradeoffs. You enjoy benefits in exchange for disadvantages. The uptake of remote work over the next decade will depend most on the minimization of those disadvantages rather than the maximization of the benefits.
Reflecting on what I’ve learned from building a community for designers, learning how to run a business, and navigating some tough life years proved both fun and difficult. I thought I’d share those thoughts in hypertext should they be useful. And so here we are.
Using duct tape to craft the letters gives his work a distinctive style. He begins by running long strips of tape vertically and horizontally across the surface of the sign. He then slices away the excess to form each character. Some extra tape and a few curved cuts make the bends. It’s a straightforward process, but even the simplest signs take him hours to produce.
I’d love a thingamajig that only did email, like a BlackBerry 850 for 2019.
I love fast software. That is, software speedy both in function and interface. Software with minimal to no lag between wanting to activate or manipulate something and the thing happening. Lightness.
How Yvon Chouinard turned his eco-conscious, anti-corporate ideals into the credo of a successful clothing company.
I’m a big fan of Tropic Thunder, especially Robert Downey Jr’s character of Kirk Lazarus and his brilliant line, “I’m a dude, playing a dude, disguised as another dude.” Mucked around with my Teenage Engineering OP-1 and this is what happened.
An introduction to Los Angeles’s futurist architecture.
Mindless as the job may seem, it is often like a game of real-life speed chess played across the treacherous grid of the city, as riders juggle orders from competing apps and scramble for elusive bonuses.

I use the jetpack-markdown WordPress plugin to write my weblog posts in Markdown. Although jetpack-markdown is no longer maintained, it was still available to download using
wp-cli. Whilst doing some maintenance on
reyhan.org, I discovered this is no longer the case1:
wp plugin install jetpack-markdown --activate Warning: jetpack-markdown: Plugin not found. Error: No plugins installed.
With little inclination to research a replacement, I went looking for the source code and was thankful that it’s still online. In addition, the latest version still seems to be available to download2:
wp plugin install https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/jetpack-markdown.3.9.6.zip Downloading installation package from https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/jetpack-markdown.3.9.6.zip... Unpacking the package... Installing the plugin... Plugin installed successfully. Activating 'jetpack-markdown'... Plugin 'jetpack-markdown' activated.
Ambient privacy is not a property of people, or of their data, but of the world around us. Just like you can’t drop out of the oil economy by refusing to drive a car, you can’t opt out of the surveillance economy by forswearing technology (and for many people, that choice is not an option). While there may be worthy reasons to take your life off the grid, the infrastructure will go up around you whether you use it or not.
Walk through Japan’s energetic urban heart and see a vibrant, creative culture that bounced back from war and natural disaster.
In upcoming versions of iOS and macOS, the new Find My feature will broadcast Bluetooth signals from Apple devices even when they’re offline, allowing nearby Apple devices to relay their location to the cloud.
I thought this feature was one of the more interesting things Apple announced this week.

It’s a small picture frame with a black, white, and red e-paper display. Accent is battery-powered and connects to Wifi, but only changes a few times each day.
Charming widget — and constraints are good for design.
