I wish there was a more peaceful feed reader. Something that doesn’t make keeping up with my favorite blogs feel like a chore.
I call it MARKS and the concept is simple. A list of bookMARKS that lets you know when something is new plus gets you out into the wilds of the web to hopefully discover even more great sites.
How I envision it working: Add sites you want to keep up with, when there is something new they jump to the top of the list. When you click on the link, it’s marked as read and drops to the bottom until something new is detected.
If you like the concept, reach out to me and maybe we can actually build it!
Color Craft & Counterpoint: A Designer’s Life with Color Vision Deficiency is a detailed article about the life of a color blind person. I’m also color blind (red/green) and the block below about traffic lights spoke to me. I have problems when lights are blinking red or yellow late at night.
Think for a moment about ways that color is used to convey information in the world around you. One thing that comes to my mind would be traffic lights. Color is used to let drivers know how they should proceed. No additional information is provided in case a driver is color blind. Traffic lights also use two of the colors most commonly associated with color blindness: red and green. Thankfully, most traffic lights have a common form factor. The top light is red, the middle light is yellow, and the bottom light is green. Even if I couldn’t tell the color, as long as I can tell which light is lit, then I’m able to get the necessary information.
Color Copy Paste is a pretty amazing app.
Small Seasons is a nice little website listing nature’s micro seasons. We are currently in the seeds and cereals. “Praying mantises hatch, fireflies come out. Time to seed the soil.” I saw my first fireflies of the summer on my walk last night.
