How to launch software changes without pissing people off
Don’t bother pre-announcing changes.
You might think it’d be helpful to warn everyone before a big launch, like…
In three weeks, this website will be totally unrecognizable. You’ll have to figure everything out from scratch, but we think the new one is nicer. Enjoy!
…but what good does that do? Maybe the advance notice dulls the shock, but the customer can’t act on this information. They have to wait to be interrupted again later by the actual change.
This only prolongs the anxiety, with very little upside. It’s better to focus energy on the transition instead—make it so smooth that there’s no need for a pre-announcement.
Explain what’s different.
It’s bad enough to be forced into an update you didn’t agree to, but it’s even worse if you have no idea what happened or why things changed.
Make sure you have a way to introduce and explain what’s new when you launch, either via in-app announcements, a mailing list, a blog, or whatever method you have to communicate with customers.
People may not like the changes, but at least they won’t be blindsided. It’s the courteous thing to do.

Super ingredients: Romanesco cauliflower | Life and style | The Guardian
In the kitchen, it's a joy. You can often buy small heads of romanesco which are ideal for serving whole, as above. Alternatively, cut into chunky florets (to preserve that marvellous pattern), blanch, then dunk immediately in icy water to fix the divine colour and serve cold in a salad - it's good with shreds of raw red onion (soaked in salty water to soften their pungency), olives and capers and a dressing of peppery olive oil and lemon.

Romanesco is also a wonderful partner to pasta. Being more tender than standard cauliflower, it easily cooks down with stock or tomatoes to a crushable softness. Mingled with garlic and lots of chilli, and tossed into orecchiette or conchiglie with olive oil and Parmesan, it's one of my all-time favourite quick suppers.

Try it also in a gratin - an updated cauliflower cheese, if you like - dotting the blanched florets with crème fraîche mixed with Parmesan, then sprinkling more Parmesan and some breadcrumbs on top and baking till golden. Irresistible.

Watch Milton Keynes - A Village City 1973
In hindsight, it's almost a little cruel to watch this film earnestly trumpet the logic and ambition behind the new town of Milton Keynes, in the knowledge that, fairly or not, it would soon become the butt of a thousand jokes. What's clear is that the vision behind the development was a long-term one, and its legacy will last far longer than knee-jerk reactions to concrete cows.

AMBER
Amber is an open source tool for websites to provide their visitors persistent routes to information. It automatically preserves a snapshot of every page linked to on a website, giving visitors a fallback option if links become inaccessible.

If one of the pages linked to on this website were to ever go down, Amber can provide visitors with access to an alternate version. This safeguards the promise of the URL: that information placed online can remain there, even amidst network or endpoint disruptions.

David Putney | Blog
A couple weeks ago a UX designer Twitter friend tweeted “Web peeps: Is there a particularly industry, segment, or niche that—generally speaking—has REALLY bad mobile web experiences?” I didn’t even have to have to think about it before replying: News sites. And it isn’t just that some news site have been slow to adopt responsive design or to redesign in general. Newly designed sites are terrible. And, in particular, they aren’t conducive to the way people use web sites today. A large...
