Correct the Internet
Due to human bias, search engines have learnt to prioritize sportsmen in search results, even when the facts put sportswomen first. This site was created to inspire change.

AI-generated code helps learning and experimentation
Outside of image generation and prose, it's interesting to understand a coding workflow. Matt Webb has thoughts and shares some insight and throws some bonus footnotes about language models. I particularly like this application angle to “parse intent instead of nouns”

OH no Type Co Reels
James Edmondson makes learning about typography superdooper fun. I've been learning lots about type history and usage from his reels. (Ugh. Instagram. But still!)
Frank Lloyd Wright Racine Collection
Steelcase is opening up orders on a line of desks and chairs re-imagined from Frank Lloyd Wright designs. On all my trips to FLW places, furniture was scaled for shorter folks and frankly, not comfortable. The pieces are not boring though.

A deep dive into the RIDGE wine label
I've always loved these labels, with their understated design and use of Optima. Nice to learn the backstory and understand the system in place.
Trevor Morris looks at movies on the horizon
I'm excited for what’s in store for 2023 after reading this list that includes upcoming work from Trevor’s favorite directors and sequels.
An interview with Geoff McFetridge about the interfaces in “Her” and then some
Seems like a good time to re-watch “Her.” Though the movie is almost 10 years old, its view of AI and interfaces is quite prescient. Scene: Firing up the OS for the first time.
More images of the interfaces in “Her”
Including a really nice sketch
A Big Pile of Personal Developer & Designer Blogs in an OPML File

Simon Collison’s 2022 in music
I'm still sifting through year end lists to find new things to read, play and listen to. Colly’s collection is presented so darn good.

Some Wonderful Things From 2022
One of the highlights of the year was seeing Jason Kottke return to regular posting after sabbatical. He wraps up some of the good things from the year. Also, sabbaticals should be way more common.
100 things that made Austin Kleon’s 2022
I dig how Austin blends experiences and moments in his year end list. Mental note: Start a list like that for 2023.
A Year of Culture
Dan Sinker has a new blog (yay). His last post for this year collects things he’s read, watched, heard, and experienced that made the year better.

A series of Garden Offices

She, un cuento de J&B
It's an ad. And it's _really_ touching. Translated description: ”There can always be room at the table for acceptance, respect and, above all, celebration.”

The origin of TV dinners
I watched this video on TV while eating (a homemade) dinner. I fondly remember the cherry pie compartment from my youth.

A community isn’t a garden, it’s a bar.
I nodded all along the cases that Derek Powazek presents and concludes. “Online communities are bars and we should admit that and start building the diverse, engaging, and safe gathering places we deserve.”

Speaking the Eames Institute, they have a (virtual) magazine to share stories about people, projects, and ideas that are shaping a better tomorrow. I kinda wish it was a real magazine, had an RSS feed or both!

Kristy Sellars on America’s Got Talent
She's billed as a pole dancer, but it's more than that. And her performance transcends the annoying way this television show is edited.
