Shoutout to the tech/product site I just visited where the designer opted for Comic Sans as the backup typeface when web fonts are disabled.

Log into merveilles after a hiatus, within minutes end up searching for chip tune composers built for the gameboy. This place has strange powers.

I made a little monogram mark for use specifically with chat apps. The concept is well-traveled, but I like to think I eked out my own flavor.

So, Rekka and I devised hand gestures for each one of the operations.

In includes a hexadecimal finger-counting scheme, and bitwise gestures, that we hope will be useful for anyone familiarizing themselves with binary.

The system uses a few existing gestures, and purposefully creates new gestures to disambiguate others.

My works are currently exhibited in an exotic furniture and accessories shop, l'heureux bouddha, on rue Masson in Montreal. :)

@metkis @megabyteGhost there’s a common term for this, the β€œPeter principle”, if you haven’t heard of it. basically ppl will be promoted until they’re doing something they aren’t competent at, or don’t enjoy doing etc. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_pr

It is frustrating that the only upward momentum in many design careers is towards taking on a form of people management.

You find something you are proficient at and enjoy doing, yet somehow the logical way to β€œadvance your career” is to phase out the parts you enjoy in favor of guiding other people to do it.

Very silly.

Anyone here have experience designing and selling enamel pins + knows a reliable place to order them from? I would enjoy looking into it and learning to do so, even if I just ended up with a bunch of silly pins to give away.

Saw these wild yellow (Iris I think) growing in marshland along a pond today.

I do some amateur photography as a hobby, and thought I'd share some photos from time to time. These were taken from two trips this month: Cape Disappointment and Olympic National Park.

I anticipate spending a LOT more time in the National Park.

This is not a diss on older technologies, but I do think it speaks to the idea that Twitter's framework is a more universally relevant structure for communicating than we give it credit for. In other words, Twitter as we know it probably could have worked in some form many years before it was invented because the structure itself is unique, effective, and practical for a broadly usable type of communication.

Mastodon is pretty novel. I like to see [decentralized thing] working within modern conventions. You come to notice a lot of nostalgia for older protocols and technology like IRC around this area of technology, but it's refreshing to note that here is a genuine decentralized social network built in the last decade that hasn't imploded or immediately succumbed to irrelevence. It's a forward win, instead of imploring a return to earlier software that hasn't adjusted to how we use the internet now.

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
