How to Create a Disruptive Design (So It Will Get Seen) designshack.net

If you really want to create a design that will make people look, it has to be disruptive.

While “disruptive” can be a bit of a hackneyed catchphrase, it is also at the core of what you do when you create something new. The goal is to get people to stop, look, and interact.

Learn R through examples gexijin.github.io

Aimed for total beginners, this book is written based on the philosophy that people learn faster when they are shown examples and case studies. Instead of explaining the rules, the book largely centers on the analysis of several datasets from the very beginning. So this is an alternative to traditional, more rigorous textbooks on R programming.

Apple, Mozilla, Google, Microsoft form group to standardize browser plug-ins appleinsider.com

The new WebExtensions Community Group will try to forge a common architecture for future web extensions, and is inviting developers to join the effort.

The new group, shortened WECG, consists of members from each of the major browser developers. Member chairs are held by Timothy Hatcher of Apple and Simeon Vincent of Google. Current participants include employees from Apple, Mozilla, and Microsoft.

The WebExtensions Community Group has two goals:

  • Make extension creation easier for developers by specifying a consistent model and common core of functionality, APIs, and permissions.
  • Outline an architecture that enhances performance and is even more secure and resistant to abuse.

Unicorn django-unicorn.com

A magical full-stack framework for Django ✨

Wait, is this magic?

  • Unicorn progressively enhances a normal Django view, so the initial render of components is fast and great for SEO.
  • Next, Unicorn binds to the elements you specify and automatically makes AJAX calls when needed.
  • Then, Unicorn dynamically updates the DOM.

The end result is that you can focus on writing regular Django templates and Python classes without needing to switch to another language or build unnecessary plumbing. Best of all, the JavaScript portion is a paltry ~8 KB gzipped.

Why We Should End the Data Economy thereboot.com

The data economy depends on violating our right to privacy on a massive scale, collecting as much personal data as possible for profit.

You may think to yourself: “I’ve done nothing wrong, so I have nothing to worry about, nothing to fear.” You’re wrong. Does everyone who can access your data have your best interests at heart?

Of course not. That’s why you keep your credit card number to yourself, and why you have a lock on the entrance to your home. If you don’t go around giving your email account password to strangers, then you shouldn’t go around giving away your personal data.

The more companies know about you, the more power they have over you.
