16-22 March 2015
I used to do some sort of reading list posts a few years ago but then came twitter and the sharing of links there, so I stopped, but then everyone started sharing things in twitter and it's now impossible to reference links or even remember who linked to what. So--back to the blog it is!
Why? I really enjoy reading Bruce Lawson's weekly reading list (example). I like this notion of weekly curated posts: it gives me an idea of what's up in the web through the eyes of a person, not a bunch of random popular links on twitter. Big data is fine and all that jazz, but sometimes it's too chaotic to make any sense.
I also want to bring more content to my website, if nothing else out of pure egoism, as it makes it easier for me to reference interesting stuff, and I know someone (i.e. me) will take care of it without having to accept a different set of terms of conditions every 6 months ;-)
And maybe other people are interested on my view? We'll see. Hopefully this time I'll keep on doing it.
- Future Friendly Fruition by Brad Frost - "The projects you’re working on this very moment will be interacted with on devices that didn’t exist at the time you made them"
- “Nobody will pay $10,000 for an Apple Watch!” & other reasons you can’t sell shit by Amy Hoy - "You are not your customer."
- How to make a browser app for Firefox OS - really like that he's using a) WebIDE and b) one of the templates I wrote last year! Yay! Nothing like seeing software you wrote being used in the wild!
- The importance of the deviant by Chris Robinson - "The fact is that EVERY SINGLE advancement in human history has been due to deviants bucking the trends and going against what is taken as conventional wisdom"
This is published too late for various reasons, but I'll try to make it a Sunday thing from now on... so you have something to procrastinate about first thing in the Monday morning =)
