Would You Ever Fire a Client Because They Were Unkind? | Dave Aron | Pulse | LinkedIn
"When my colleague introduced me and set up the meet, [the client] told me to 'give my pitch', then proceeded to open his laptop and read his email whilst I talked about what we could do. He did not do this surreptitiously, or try to pretend he was also listening; he wanted to show us that he actively ignoring us. Obviously it was not a fun experience, and looking back on it, I wished I had had the courage to stop the meeting and leave."

Designed lines. — Ethan Marcotte
"We’re building on a web littered with too-heavy sites, on an internet that’s unevenly, unequally distributed. That’s why designing a lightweight, inexpensive digital experience is a form of kindness. And while that kindness might seem like a small thing these days, it’s a critical one. A device-agnostic, data-friendly interface helps ensure your work can reach as many people as possible, regardless of their location, income level, network quality, or device.

The alternative is, well, a form of digital disenfranchisement. Disenfranchisement that’s outlined—brightly, sharply—by our design decisions."

"But none of this suggests to me that citizenship is anything other than the grounds of our refusal to care for others as we’d like to be cared for if misfortune tore us from our homes and threw us onto the mercies of others."



"Kindness (kin-ness) has ancient origins that connect us both to nature and to relationships, and took me back to kith (as in “kith and kin”), and the importance of knowing the place where we are, the way that knowing place nourishes our capacity to belong."
