I did not think we could find a worse less accessible and more annoying trend than neumorphism, but the industry proved me wrong with glassmorphism.
Stay away from trends people, especially inaccessible ones, also they fade FAST (pun intended ^^)

Hooo I like that: Firefox 86 Introduces Total Cookie Protection. Every website has its own cookie jar, yes yes yes!

I'm tired of seeing people want to piss of other, let's be nice instead.
Make a dev happy with 4 words.
I'll start:
"I documented all states"

I'm sorry but robots need clothes too, OKAY? Even the "pesky ones". That's not cool! That little black dress would look amazing on that cute little spam bot!

I double down on "OMG your work computer in the mayor's office isn't locked with a password, what kind of administration is that?" Also "banks accounts too have login/password so no you can't just access accounts like that" 🙄🤨

Internal vs. External Validity of UX Studies: Poorly designed qualitative or quantitative research may produce invalid results. Avoid encouraging certain responses or behaviors and make sure that your study conditions and participants are representative.

“Optimism forces people to blame themselves for their own failures and misery; to never look at the structures of power that contribute to this. You just didn’t try hard enough, and you weren’t good enough” a great article against performative positivity.

It's Friday my friends, so here is some sound activated typography experiment, works with any sound (so you can speak, clap your hands, etc) by @wearecollins@twitter.com

(alt video: the letters of the typography move based on the noise in my flat)

I'm cringing at how many series and movie plots rely on "that people did not hide notifications on the homescreen of their phone". Hi, basic privacy and security options?

Je vois qu'avec les zami.e.s on a un peu la même image de la gestion de projet, ha les gens dans la tech luxo :D

🎵Music mood, common people shake it, you know you need this after that 2hours meeting, give it a shake (if you can), none is watching (maybe cats, but they'll judge you anyway, just double check the webcam is off)!!

The thing with the "if you click on the icon there's no touch area" could have been avoided by testing this to be honest. I feel like this is kind of "overkill digitalisation" and quite confusing for a lot of people. Also touch screen in an hospital waiting room: YURK!

Show thread

The touch screen is "just" 4 language buttons, then 5 other button to tell the reason for your visit and get a number on a ticket and you wait to be called. 2 "simple" actions. Yet in those 15 minutes, I helped 2 lost people perform this :/

So, until I helped me, that person was in the corner of the waiting room, waiting and observing other people use that touch screen until he could find out how it's supposed to work (or find someone to help him).
