Encryption must instead be the default in protocols like RCS and email. If you make the end user have to think, care, and act, you've already lost.

Hey, Google.

I’m a human.

Windows is one of those people that never throws anything away.


Hey kids when you're designing awesome decentralised stuff, don't forget discoverability. I mean podcasts, conceptually, are perfectly decentralised but when I ask someone about their podcast 90% of the time they tell me to look it up on iTunes.

Dear Web Developers,

Put a background colour on your pages.

Thank you.

Hello, my name is Graeme, I have a PhD in computing, and I am a senior accessibility consultant, but when I want to type "é" on a Windows laptop I go to Beyoncé's Wikipedia page and copy/paste the letter from there.


I'm really excited about Mozilla's focus on developer tools in #Firefox. My coworkers laughed when they found out I was using Firefox, because in their mind it's behind the times. Chrome is the only modern browser to them. New tools that make development easier makes it easier to show them why Firefox, and a diverse browser ecosystem in general, is important to support.


The other core reason to back Akira right now - and why I'm backing it - is the collaborative save format:

It includes the #git history in a design! ...branching and all!

#OpenStandards and #OpenSource is in OUR hands. We make the future we want

Much of programming is wondering why your code is doing exactly what you asked it to.

An app author thanked for creating, “a platform in which people are encouraged not only to be consumers of technology, but to become creators of it and share their creations with others.” That's such awesome and high praise to me. I'm super proud of everyone. 😊

It says a lot when other designers ask what mockup tools we use for OS… but they don't realize they're looking at a screenshot of real, working code.
