Playing catch-up again with the link roundups, so here’s the rest of May and all of June, and a delicious treat.
Category Archives: Link roundup
Some good stuff this fortnight — videos and presentations for you to watch, announcements and major product updates from Adobe and Google; data visualizations of varying quality; accessibility tools and reports; and a bunch of other cool things.
The week of April 22nd was light on stuff to talk about, so here’s two weeks at one go. Plus a latte cat.
Pretty diverse week — industrial design, Google Glass, maps, art, reading material, and of course accordions. On the way back from getting coffee, Sergei, Yu, and I were behind a guy for several blocks and Sergei became obsessed with his bag. I got close enough to read the label: Côte et Ciel.

But here’s what we did share online: Simple Models for User Context by Andrew Hinton includes “Personal-Behavioral Context,” “Personal-Situational Context,” and “Systems […]
Occasionally when we don’t have topics for our standing Monday R&D meetings, we watch some design-related videos instead. This week we watched two, both TED talks: Sugata Mitra on new experiments in self-teaching Ze Frank’s web playroom
Somewhat quiet week around here. Char’s obsession with Bootstrap continues, as does Jason’s with beer, and we all learned about new (to us) CSS length properties. Image: Michael Fajardo
