I - Alasdair Monk on Collaborative Design Production

Talented Mr. Monk, mainly of Gocardless but with fingers in many pies including Lyles of London, pushed a great post on collaboration in design production.

It reads like a problem statement for something Alasdair has stared dabbling with. At least judging from SketchGit, a simple Git client . . .

I - What Googlers know That You Don't?

Somewhat misleading title, somewhat muddled argument, but crystal clear points by Hunter Walk:

those who worked at e.g. Google during its early and hypergrowth years are more likely to:
1) Understand what motivates exceptional achievers

I - Timmer on Gadamer, Kahn and Ive

Hermeneutical design, now there's the thing!

Granted, the article is too long, the parallels too drawn out. Nonetheless, absolute kudos to Sjors for tackling the issue of the design conversations with the past head on. Dealing with big topics, as is his wont.

I - Bridle on Living on the Electromagnetic Border

In the last 5 years James Bridle has gone from a Tumblr-sensation to Iain Sinclair of the millennial generation.

The first piece in Salon / CreativeTimeReports is too diffuse, tethering on the edge of rambling.

The second, based on his Sinclair-esque attempt to walk the perimeter of the . . .

I - Let's not teach our kids to code...

It's refreshing to read a contrarian angle to "teach kids to code" discussion, even if I disagree with Bonanzinga's and Mutlu's points.

Yes, understanding user experiences is crucial. Nonetheless, understanding code becomes even more important, precisely because:

I - Hidden Lives of Ordinary Mechanical Pencils

Wonderful essay from excellent Object Lessons series curated by Ian Bogost and Christopher Schaberg.

I never got into mechanical pencils. Never developed the requisite light touch.

If you have an object to give lesson on - they are after contributors.
