I met a UX director yesterday who was adamant that UI design and UI development are best kept as strictly separate roles, arguing that designers are more creative when they’re not thinking about code.

“When Facebook’s product designer for the GDPR flow was asked if she thought this hyperlink was the best way to present the alternative to the big “I Accept” button, she disingenuously said yes, eliciting scoffs from the room of reporters.”

This is huge. Russia’s unelected government is afraid of communications it can’t monitor, so it tries to shut down Telegram. Telegram moves to AWS and Google Cloud. Russia BLOCKS both services. Almost nothing works in Russia’s internet right now. Banks, shopping, small business.

There’s loads of UK orgs (and orgs that have UK offices) who do user research at scale. Lots of in-housing has happened over the last 5-6 years.

Blimey. That sounds like a valuable cheat sheet!

Every organisation has dusty corners of their operations that have a terrible user experience. Check out the instructions I received from to help me sign up for a Business Account.

Here's the dark pattern that allows Facebook to store your entire call and text history on Facebook's servers. "Text anyone in your phone"—who could say no to that?! Zuckerberg claimed in his testimony that it's opt-in. Sure it is, except that you get harassed until you do.

“Oh the new Jira looks quite good” Sets up new board. “Why can’t I configure that thing? Are some of the UI components hidden because I’m the wrong user type?” Totally confused within two minutes.

The GPGP is made up of: - 40% fishing nets (????) - 10-20% debris washed into the ocean from Japan by the Tohoku tsunami of 2011 (!!!!) - at least one game boy 😢 Go read the paper. It’s worth it.

One library for atoms (small components like buttons shared by multiple squads) one for pages (some page designs shared between fewer squads)

I’d happily pay for a third party tool like if it’s more reliable than sketch’s inbuilt library tool.

I have a question on nesting symbols & libraries. Is it unwise to create a library of symbols (atom level) then nest items from that library in another library (page level)? This seems to slow down the app a fair bit.

This looks useful for remote audio research interviews. Recordings are made locally then combined, which avoids the robot-voice & dropouts you normally get with voip. Should make transcription a lot easier.
