7 Simple Rules for Creating Elegant UI Interactions — SitePoint
'Interaction design' is one of those newish buzzwords that has become strongly tied into the UX design process. In 2015 it's no longer enough for interface elements to instantly switch between two static states. Today words like 'slide' and 'bounce' and 'rebound' have come into the conversation on how good user interfaces work.

However in the world of interactions – as is the case with expensive watches – 'fancy' does not not necessarily mean 'elegant'. While we may be curious about the complexity of the fancy watch below, I suspect that very few of us would want to actually wear it. Natural elegance almost always triumphs over decoration in our interface design too.

Charles Murray is once again peddling junk science about race and IQ - Vox
"Our bottom line is that there is a responsible, scientifically informed alternative to Murrayism: a non-essentialist view of intelligence, a non-deterministic view of behavior genetics, and a view of group differences that avoids oversimplified biology."

Hiding in plain sight: how the 'alt-right' is weaponizing irony to spread fascism | Technology | The Guardian
The best response is to stubbornly take the “alt-right” at their word. Angela Nagle’s book about the “alt-right”, Kill All Normies, is released next month. She says that for the “alt-right”, online irony “is a mechanism for undermining the confidence of their critics”.

“The thing that people have to realize is that it isn’t that complicated. We know what they believe in, and if you say that you’re ‘alt-right’, presumably you believe in those things too.”

Rather than getting lost in the weeds of a fast-moving internet culture, we should be bearing down hard on those core beliefs.

“Journalists should be saying, ‘I don’t want to talk about Pepe memes and hand signs. Tell me what are the limits of what you’re prepared to do’. We should force them to talk about what they really stand for.”

In future, the best step may be to meet irony with sincerity.

Medium Style Header – Tony Jing – Medium
The team behind Medium has created a great experience. The execution of this greatness lies in getting the details right. For example, once logged in, the home page’s image header gradually blurs out as the user scrolls down the page. Another example is the parallax effect as the title and subtitle fading out of the view, against the large full bleed background image, when scrolling down on the page. These interactions not only provide context for the reader, they also make the experience engaging and pleasant. I’ve decided to recreate these two experiences.
