What we're reading this week
Adam: When AOL’s Patch collapsed in 2013, a number of observers jumped on this failure to call hyperlocal news unsustainable. Not so fast, say a number of former Patch editors who’ve decided to go it alone with the support of organizations like LION and the use of open source tech like INN’s Largo.
Ben: Autotune for images can regularize patterns or highlight and distort differences. But what will it do to family portraits?
David: The history of WordPress.
Jack: Are news websites some of the slowest on the web? Let’s make them go faster.
Kaeti: It’s far too easy to make assumptions about our users when creating a product. This is a fantastic reminder of why it’s so important to design with empathy.
Ryan: Check out slouchy if you’d like a constant reminder that your posture is terrible.
Bert: Tensegrity tetrahedrons, tripping through thy tubes.
