​The Half Life of Body Hacking | Motherboard
On October 19, 2013, Tim Cannon got a Circadia 1.0—a sensor that can measure heat and pulse—implanted into his arm. The rectangular box sat there beneath his arm, measuring the temperature of his body, and transmitting that data to his cell phone. The idea is to ultimately develop a device that communicates with a thermostat, controlling the climate of a room based on a person’s internal temperature.

Cannon’s box wasn’t designed as a permanent implant. Based on the stress tests they’d done of the device, his team of bodyhackers at Grindhouse Wetware only planned to have it in for a maximum of 180 days. It lasted 94. Then he had it cut out.

Why Mathematicians Are Hoarding This Special Type of Japanese Chalk
This isn’t just a story about a dead chalk company—it’s the story of a dead medium, the chalkboard, now being superseded by whiteboards and tablets. But it’s not hard to see chalk having old-fashioned appeal, much like vinyl records and mason jars. For now, the chalk is still available on Amazon. Get it while it lasts.

The CLU | Сервис для друзей
Много-много лет мы помогаем друзьям, друзьям друзей и знакомым друзей друзей с их «яблочной» техникой. Начиная с рядовых продаж, мы придерживались принципа «своих не бросаем». Поэтому к нам всегда можно обратиться за помощью, даже если вы купили у нас Мак в лохматом 2006 году. Денег за такую помощь брать не привыкли, чем ставили людей в тупик: нам несли алкоголь, кофе, тортики. Печень начала бунтовать, нужен был выход.

Entweet: Securing Twitter — Lukasa/entweet
Everyone likes Twitter, right? We all think it's awesome.

However, Twitter suffers from one critical problem: it lacks GPG integration. In this modern era, we believe it's vital to wed the two most important technologies of our generation: message integrity, and 140-character witticisms.

Enter Entweet.

Entweet is a tool for taking Twitter and making it 100 times nerdier. No longer will you have to be content with tweeting in plaintext, like your non-tech-savvy uncle, Barry. Instead, you can take your Twitter conversations to the next level, by guaranteeing the integrity of everything you tweet, while making it really inconvenient for other people to read your messages.

Questions I ask when reviewing a design by Jason Fried of Basecamp
I’ve been thinking more about how I review a design – both my own and someone else’s. So over the past couple days I’ve been writing down every question I’ve been asking when I look at a design-in-progress. Some of these I say out loud, some just go through my head, some are in person, others are posted to Basecamp or Campfire.

After having managers describe an existing customer persona and consider the person’s thoughts and reactions, the research team asked the managers to anticipate the customer’s needs. The findings were not what you would expect. The more empathetic managers were, the more “egocentric” they became; that is, the more likely they were to say that the customers’ preferences were the same as their own.

Facebook Visual Identity | Office of Ben Barry
Facebook’s visual identity already had a lot going for it in 2008 when I started working there. They had chosen a bold and simple color scheme, had a simple well crafted wordmark, and had thankfully avoided the glossy web 2.0 aesthetic so prevalent at the time. Still, I believed there was huge opportunity for improvement. That opportunity, along with their mission and company culture, was a major reason why I wanted to work there.

Показывает приложенные к постам картинки в красивых лайтбоксах;
Показывает ссылку 'Add comment' под комментариями к посту;
Разноцветные облачка у комментариев (оранжевые у вас, тёмно-серые у автора треда, голубые у ваших френдов, светло-серые у ваших читателей);
При клике на облачко в поле комментария вставляется @логин или ^^^ при клике с Ctrl/Cmd;

Текстовые поля ввода увеличиваются по высоте вместе с текстом;
В общей ленте постов показывается, чей комментарий или лайк принесли в ленту этот пост (если пост не от френда), также можно скрывать посты не от френдов;
Облачко рядом с комментарием заменяется на юзерпик автора. Если включена настройка «разноцветные облачка», то под юзерпиком показывается полоска соответствующего цвета;
Если в посте есть ссылки и нет аттачей, то после тела поста добавляется краткое превью страницы по ссылке (используется сервис http://embed.ly/code);

Reading Every Issue of The New Yorker
This approach is similar to one taken by writer Laura Hillenbrand when she wrote a bestseller about the racehorse Seabiscuit. In an excellent essay in the July, 7, 2003 New Yorker, she described how a chronic illness forced her to conduct much of the book’s research from home, and in a recent interview with The New York Times Magazine (Dec. 18, 2014), she further related how the research included buying old newspapers on eBay and reading them in her living room as though she were browsing the daily paper. “I wanted to start to feel like I was living in the ’30s,” she told the magazine. “That elemental sense of daily life seeps into the book in ways too subtle and myriad to count.”

The New Yorker’s digital archive doesn’t provide the same tactile experience as newsprint, but each issue is nevertheless an exact scan of the original, some even bearing a past reader’s penciled notes, dog-eared corners, or the shadow of cellophane tape hastily applied over a tear.
