In a recent interview with 100kfreelancerclub.com I share a little about my approach to working efficiently.

It amazes me that publications like UX Planet still feel the need to publish articles explaining that design is about more than aesthetics. Have we not moved on from this misconception yet? https://uxplanet.org/the-value-of-design-8d6fc8805199?source=rss----819cc2aaeee0---4

From time to time I come across articles talking about how UX helps a particular sector (in this case small business) but I would argue that in most cases the benefits of UX are universal which is one of the amazing things about our discipline. https://community.uxmastery.com/t/what-are-the-benefits-of-ui-ux-design-for-small-businesses/16717/1

I know it can be frustrating when you are stopped from implementing user experience best practices, but we can make real progress with a shift in approach and mindset. https://boagworld.com/emails/small-steps-make-a-big-difference-in-ux/

So Sam Altman has just been ousted from OpenAI. Feels very much like when Jobs was pushed out of Apple.

I am not sure why Americans think British food sucks. Just had a far better meal out tonight than I ever have in the states. Superb.

Am I the only one who has pretty much given up on social media these days. With Threads, Mastodon, LinkedIn and X all vying for my attention I hardly post to any of them. How do others deal with it?

@hayo but which one!

@jonhicks @hayo well haughty or not it is a good point.

It is impossible to overstate the impact Molly had on the web. Without her work as part of the web standards movement I am convinced the web would be an utterly different place. If you work on the web today you might not have heard of Molly but your job is easier because her. https://www.tucsonsentinel.com/local/report/090523_molly_holzschlag/tucsons-molly-holzschlag-known-as-the-fairy-godmother-web-dead-60/

This 15-inch Macbook Air is hands down the best computer I have ever owned, period, even taking into account advances in technology over time. It is an absolute pleasure to use and balances perfectly size with performance.

Well Threads is now a thing. Problem is that my Home Screen just shows every post irrespective of whether I follow them or not. Surely that makes the whole thing redundant.

So I have been fairly open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. Most of the time it is pretty manageable with a relatively low dose of antidepressants. However every now and again (like today) I feel this crippling sense of dread and anxiety for absolutely no reason. Itโ€™s so bloody annoying because life is good! My brain doesnโ€™t even bother making up a bullshit reason I should be anxious. I just am. Thatโ€™s lazy.

@lewiscowles1986 Talented and successful? Have you met me Lewis ;-)

boagworld,
@boagworld@mastodon.social avatar

@lewiscowles1986 well thanks Lewis. That is kind of you to say. I must admit I do have a good life and certainly have nothing to complain about.

So I have my hands on the 15 inch Macbook Air and it is gorgeous. It is amazing how much of a difference two inches make (no innuendo intended). As. I work full-time from my macbook screen this will be a game changer for me.

boagworld,
@boagworld@mastodon.social avatar

@lewiscowles1986 no it is not but that honestly doesnโ€™t worry me. Basically it boils down to the ยฃ key.

@boagworld@mastodon.social avatar

@jonhicks it also helps that it reminds me of my first ever Mac. I loved that thing.

So I thought Canadians were nice. Some bastard was sawn the catalytic converter off our RV!

Finally got to try the 15โ€ MacBook Air out in an Apple Store. Hot damn itโ€™s good! Decent screen space, and as light and thin as I was hoping. Itโ€™s going to have be done.

@malarkey @jonhicks picking mine up the 4th July.

@boagworld@mastodon.social avatar

@jonhicks @malarkey yeah I should have done that really but itโ€™s hard to manage when travelling.
