  3. The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. Thankfully, Sarah’s Volvo and my Saab made it through unharmed… not everyone was so lucky.

  5. The Flat Design Era

    layervault:

    When LayerVault 2 launched earlier this spring, we believed that we were taking a risk by pursuing an entirely flat interface.

    Well-loved products on the web share a similar design aesthetic, with roughly the same kinds of bevels, inset shadows, and drop shadows. For designers, achieving this level of “lickable” interface is a point of pride. For us, and for a minority of UI designers out there, it feels wrong.

    We certainly didn’t invent the flat style but arriving at it was a violent process. We tore through hundreds of revisions (we have the LayerVault timelines to prove it) to potential interfaces before arriving at the answer that now makes us say “of course.” The desk at LayerVault’s original headquarters (my Manhattan apartment) still has the battle scars from objects being slammed down in anger. At one point, while working on a mockup, a MacBook was slammed shut so hard it was nearly unhinged.

  9. timoni.org: I love the internet.

    timoni:

    It’s my fifth cakeday of coming out here, to the internet world capital, San Francisco. I wouldn’t be here if there was no internet; I have no particular inclination towards hippiedom or comp sci or biotech, but once I learned it was the place to be if you loved the internet, I was dead set on…
