We have an opening for a Senior User Experience Designer at DT: linkedin.com…obs_share_fb[+]
@andrewlitvak Heh, clever partnership indeed.
Tumblr is the web’s quiet achiever. Thriving community and content, yet hardly any coverage in the press compared to their competition.
@andrewlitvak That’s true.
@jwswj Interestingly, Android 2.x browsers are the new IE6 for them.
@robertsparis The site looks different (and better) than last time I saw it. Your work?
@deanfra @jymmysim @markusgiesen LOL, wish I was there to see that.
@chrisbride Yep, I see Wilson Miner’s touch all over their design.
@grahamrb Not surprised MOG’s average. Rdio’s collection has served me ok so far, but let’s see… I’ll certainly be tweeting about it.
@davidsamaras Heh, Rdio’s library has served me ok so far, but you might be right long term.
Everyone’s on Spotify and I’ve tried to join in but man I can’t stomach their design. @Rdio for me.
Re-watched Brett Victor’s acclaimed ‘Inventing on Principle.’ His words to live by: “Do you define yourself by your craft or by your cause?”
@chrisbride Not sure, but I’d guess it’s either their tech limitations or users being better at spotting things than describing as a query.
@jasehutch Know what you mean. Their beta started more visual a year ago and gradually got textual with feedback: digital.cabi…erate-again/[+]

Notice how they’ve ditched the traditional nav bar in favour of a homepage as the launchpad.
Numeric keypads shouldn’t come by default on modern desktop keyboards. The extra reach to the mouse hurts over time. Loss in desk space too.

@PGHarrison Evil’s probably too strong a word, but neither are great.
@PGHarrison Lesser of two evils with these parties. I too wish we had a credible alternative.
@helveticade @deanfra @chesterm8 Thanks guys, I’ll look into these. Wish it was simpler to ship for headphones though.
@deanfra @helveticade Curious: which headphones do you guys use at work? I’m looking for a new set and the options are daunting.
@force10x For one-month gigs, you’re better off with freelancers dude. Check out Elance or something.
Why can’t all lifts have buttons like this old one at David Jones? http://t.co/mVZuQG1jxd
@andytlr @lukechesser Good discussion. Timelines are historically drawn the other way. Flipping to an older chapter is the other way too.
@helveticade It blows me away that they get away with pretending.
With all that talent at Facebook, you’d think ugly pages like this wouldn’t exist. But privacy’s not their priority. http://t.co/FLZ9XEDRKU
