/ What's new in design digital culture

Friday is for Art

Describing perfectly who I am – and many others – I am sure. Today – after an emotional roller-coaster – and prise de conscience – I am back on track. I am renewing my determination to stay focussed on my lifelong mission: to sublimate pain with beauty, inspiration and good. I am not ducking from reality – I am affording myself the ‘space’ needed to be focussed.

Netdiver Mag schedule is moving to a Monday through Thursday timeline.

Fridays are for art projects.

5 ? x 100 (d*)

5 questions for 100 designers is a repository of interviews (78 completed to date) initiated by Yevgeny Yermakov – a graphic designer currently based in Samara, Russia.

_______

1. What difficulties did you face at the beginning of your career?
2. What should a young designer do in order not to get hired by anybody?
3. Are there any things you wish you knew at the beginning of your career?
4. Are there any rules or habits that help you do your job more efficiently?
5. Would you recommend some books that young designers might find useful?

All apps now!

Mac Desktop: The Evolution of Work, 1984 to 2014 by Ronald Carlson

Remember the Rolodex? How about the fax machine? Wow everything are apps now.

Friday amusement.

FB + your privacy

Get your loved ones off Facebook by Salim Virani.

It’s not just what Facebook is saying it’ll take from you and do with your information, it’s all the things it’s not saying, and doing anyway.

We don’t even need to click ‘I agree’ anymore. They just change the privacy policy and by staying on Facebook, you agree.

Oopsy!

Interview w/ MWM

Interview with the Artist: Evolution of Matt W. Moore by Minimograph.

MWM Graphics is a design, fine art, and illustration studio. By combining his background in graffiti with graphic design, Matt has created a distinctly bold, colorful, and geometric aesthetic.

Support DIME

I am an avid defender of human rights – privacy for everyone (which is part of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights – Article 12) and I just discovered this upcoming service: DIME (Dark Internet Mail Environment).

_______

I wanted to ‘see’ who was behind and found these articles:

Secrets, lies and Snowden’s email: why I was forced to shut down Lavabit by Ladar Levison. It is a shocking read! Instead of relenting (and becoming complicit) to NSA / FBI and the whole US legal machine descending on him to get his ‘encryption keys’.. he shut down the service and blew away his company + 10 years of hard work.

Lavabit loses contempt of court appeal over Edward Snowden encryption keys

_______

Wow talk about convictions – this guy is the real-deal – because in the process – he lost everything. I cannot imagine the stress of going through such an ordeal.

But he stood his ground – and is.. rebuilding it with Silent Circle – a purveyor of secured apps.

I profoundly admire that.

Vivaldi – not the composer

I am test-driving Vivaldi (tech preview v.) – a new browser – yepp don’t faint – finally after years of zippo – nenni – nothing – nein – nil alternates.

_______

At the helm – xOpera founder. Hinted in above screencap – the chrome is a close-enough flat design that leaves me wanting more of it not less..

_______

Tabs highlight using main favicon color – that’s nice. Runs on Linux – even nicer. But the logo needs to be made flat – not this horrible 2.0 era thingy.

_______

ndlr: Altho M$ is developing ‘Spartan’ (finally public admission that IE was crappola).

Self-promotion?

I am honored that Kuvva’s founder – Laszlito Kovacs – invited me to do an interview and thank you – for the very very glowing introduction. I was not expecting that.

I share tips about self-promotion, curation and building a great portfolio.

Read it here.

Never offline??

How Apple (watch) is Invading Our Bodies by Lev Grossman.

Like a pushy date, the Apple Watch wants to get intimate with us in a way we’re not entirely used to or prepared for. This isn’t just a new product, this is technology attempting to colonize our bodies.

Once you’re OK with wearing technology, the only way forward is inward: the next product launch after the Apple Watch would logically be the iMplant.

Never offline?? Not on my watch.
