Conflicted between:
1) wanting to use only in my open source design job.
and
2) realising that Figma is pretty good and that using it would probably result in better designed open source software.

I think there will be some compromise, at least until the good people at @akiraux release their alpha.

Volume II of the Low-Tech Magazine printed website book is now available. Together with Volume I the books contain all major articles from 2007 - 2018.

The Hidden Life of an Amazon User, by Joana Moll

"The Hidden Life of an User reveals the hidden economic and environmental costs offloaded to, and unwittingly paid for, by the end-user. The Hidden Life of an Amazon User confronts us with the environmental footprint instigated by purchasing a book on Amazon.com: 87.33Mb of data is activated to navigate through 12 different interfaces—1307 different requests totaling 8724 pages of printed code—all used for continuously tracking customer behavior to amplify the monetization of the end-user and increase business revenues. To put it bluntly, the user is not just exploited by means of their free labor but is also forced to assume the energy costs of such exploitation.

The project includes three commissioned texts by Jussi Parikka, Jara Rocha and Christian Ulrik Andersen & Søren Bro Pold, available on the website of the project."

After years of using GIT mainly on my own I sure am glad to have some friends to play with.

I'm delighted to be joining the team at @cryptpad : a collaborative office suite that is open-source and encrypted. I'll be working on design and usability, esp. for the privacy features.

It's November, which means it's National Novel Generation Month, where people write code that writes a novel!

I would love to see more beginner programmers participate, so I just wrote a blog post that highlights some very simple novel generators that were made last year.
