This was the weirdest project I've listened to in a while. Pretty damn good though!

The internet: A global, borderless world of its own where you have to keep explaining to people that you're not an American.


I found this very useful:

"How to be a good white ally, according to activists

Three experts on what it does and doesn’t mean to be an ally, now and always."

This thread is full of gold.

I can't do a lot of thinking or working lately. The circumstances don't allow it.

But I can't help but be bothered by the internet finding yet another of Martin Luther King Jr's quotes to say what they want him to say.

A short break with some tea.
Looks like Hökensås actually,
It's Trylen at the border of the Rudan nature reserve. But Hökensås is beautiful as well.
Rudan looks very nice! I have never been there thou.

I actually grew up in Hökensås, and that picture really looked like Norra Englandssjön 😀
Rudan is far from the nicest nature reserve, but it's very accessible if you live in Stockholm. I had 4 hours between work, so I took a short trip to satisfy my two strongest withdrawal syndromes - that for tea and that for nature.
Bor precis bredvid Rudan, så bjuder gärna på kaffe om du någonsin tar dig dit 😀
Bor på andra sidan Sverige faktiskt, men är jag i närheten så slänger jag iväg en toot 😀

Me while coding: Hmmm... this isn't what I expected this piece of code to do.
Me 1 second later: Wait, what do I want this piece of code to do? *confused about why I even wrote the code in the first place*

A public request for comments, any good discourse welcome.

Content warning: UX/UI thoughts on simplicity vs complexity:

Click to open/closeA UI should present the task with all of it's complexity in an as simple manner as possible.
Any UI that reduces the complexity of the task is a failure in UX design.

Am I missing something?
Thoughs?

Perhaps unpopular and unconventional opinion of problems of peer review in science and academia:

Click to open/closeWorks published only in for profit journals inevitably have a conflict of interest and should be regarded as problematic for that reason. It also inhibits proper peer review. If a work can't be freely accessed and referred* to it shouldn't be regarded as a serious contribution to the scientific community.

* A reference to a work that isn't freely available is also highly problematic.

If you can't fit all your tea in one moving box you have too much tea.

Enjoying some tea on the train.
