Hear the Otherworldly Sounds of Skating on Thin Ice | National Geographic - YouTube
"This small lake outside Stockholm, Sweden, emits otherworldly sounds as Mårten Ajne skates over its precariously thin, black ice. “Wild ice skating,” or “Nordic skating,” is both an art and a science. A skater seeks out the thinnest, most pristine black ice possible—both for its smoothness, and for its high-pitched, laser-like sounds".

(More) Tips for Building Your Sketch UI Library – The Customer Service Blog By Help Scout – Medium
I recently read this excellent article by Hudl on their tips for building usable Sketch Libraries — and was relieved to find that I’d been following a similar path in creating our UI Libraries over at Help Scout. So for those of you deep in the trenches, I wanted to share a couple of additional things that have made my life immeasurably easier when creating and maintaining our shared components.

My professional opinion as a blockchain researcher: I don’t see the point (yet) | The unpublished notebooks of J. M. Korhonen
I’ve spent the last 15 months researching the implications and possibilities of blockchains and related “distributed trust technologies” from a business and societal point of view. Sadly, I have to say that I don’t quite get the hype, as much as I’d love to believe in a technological revolution that democratises the world economy.

(NOTE: I’ve edited this text a bit to be clear that I’m talking about public blockchains. Private blockchains are a different matter, and they will have applications in e.g. automating many transactions. That said, the effects are hardly revolutionary, at least in the short term.)

As it stands, public blockchain is very much a kludgy solution looking for non-existent problem, namely lack of trusted intermediaries in finance and accounting.

Unfortunately for this central value proposition of blockchain, there is no lack of trusted enough intermediaries in the financial/accounting sector.
