New year, new design.
I think I force myself to keep up with all the new things happening in web development by making myself redesign my site every couple of years or so. I never really consciously sit down to make comps and figure out all the details.

Technology has an interface problem
In 2020, Amazon launched its first piece of wearable technology, the Halo. Like an Apple Watch or Fitbit, the Halo could tell you how many steps you take, track your sleeping habits, and guide your workouts, but it also came with a particularly personal feature Amazon referred to as “tone,” touting the feature on its website, urging potential users to “see how you sound to your partner” or “see how you sound to your waiter.”

How can you find time to design?
For the past few months, I’ve noticed an increasing number of designers online complaining about their lack of time to design. They have a packed agenda full of meetings and, if they’re lucky, they have little blocks of an hour of less to design.

Share Mastodon posts better
How does this work? It seems like Apple made a special case for displaying tweets in the Messages interface. This tool takes your Mastodon post URL, pretends it's from a Twitter URL for the purposes of showing the special tweet UI, and then forwards all navigation to the original post.
