What we're reading this week
Ben: One of the most important things in this list of principles of the keyboard-accessible website is the advice on keyboard shortcuts: “Developers should never unexpectedly change keyboard controls on the user.” What was the origin of the shortcut Command/Control-K to make text a link? I don’t know. But it works that way of every site with a rich text editor that I’ve used, and that’s a good thing.
Gabe: Love this photo illustration in a profile about professional de-clutterer Marie Kondo; it captures the organized but joyful quirkiness that is her brand.
Jack: With social media increasingly important in how people get and share information, it’s also changed how people get news, right? Actually a new study by Pew reports the vast majority of people most commonly share news using an older technology: word of mouth.
Julia: Learn D3 basics by planting a vegetable garden.
Inndy: Deal with it.
