👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰
Reputation is the aggregation of ideas that have swarmed your body. Reputation is a list of your chronic afflictions.The tyranny of ideas
As Raihani points out, we are constantly trying to second-guess the reasons for others’ actions – and we punish people harshly when we suspect that their motives are impure. Those instinctive suspicions may or may not be true, of course. We often base our judgements on intuition rather than hard facts.Why overly kind and moral people can rub you up the wrong way
Generative art/design is any work created with an element of chance. We define some rules and allow a source of randomness to guide us to an outcome.Creating Generative Patterns with The CSS Paint API
Once a view becomes part of your identity it’s almost impossible to see its flaws, when it needs to adapt, or has expired.It Sounds Crazy
What experience has most impacted your career or identity as a designer?
Many years ago, a fresh grad joined my team and asked a lot of basic questions about design such as information architecture, research, etc. And I didn’t know how to help that person because I was too focused on visual design at that time, and oblivious to UX. Long story short, that member quit out of frustration that they can’t grow in my team. I stepped up my game since then.
What is the biggest professional challenge facing you in the next 6-12 months?
The biggest challenge that I face within the next 6-12 months would be the on-going maturity of the team. I must be able to go with the flow of improvement in order to support their growth.
To start with, the very abundance of digital data exacerbates the most fundamental constraint on information commerce—the limits of human comprehension.
Software costs nothing to copy, but someone still has to create it. The costs of development may approach zero as copies approach infinity, but there is still a very-non-zero amount of time and capital needed for activation energy.
When you communicate on mass media, whether it’s a 30 second spot on prime-time TV, a press ad in a National newspaper, or a 6 sheet in a city centre, you will reach a large number of those who are in your target market. But you will also reach a large number of those who are not.
Very often, this new behavior involves breaking the rules. Then, a winning strategy for founders is to build products that make these new models more accessible to a wider audience.
On the other hand, life isn’t always hellish. We experience love, friendship, adventure and heartbreaking beauty. Could all this really come from random collisions of particles?
This is also where it pays to remember that your goal is not always to make the other person feel as comfortable as possible.
The value of the web is not embodied in its technology, so much as in the network of relationships that make up the ecosystem. Ecological networks take a long time to evolve, and can’t just be ported over.
Not all employees are interested in a ‘traditional’ growth plan (working up the ladder). Uncovering where employees want to develop, whether it’s taking on more responsibilities or moving into a different role, helps managers better create career development paths to get them there.
If you still feel shame about an incorrect or poorly perceived contribution to a team meeting, it is time to stop dwelling on it. The remark might be holding you back, but it is likely that everyone else forgot about it months ago.
The news didn’t make your opinions more rational, it just made you more confident you were right. Rarely do we read things we disagree with. It’s much easier to just put our walls up and tune out.
Whatever the case, being aware of my level of interest and engagement helps me adjust my energy as the project moves from start to finish. The goal is to maintain equanimity through the project’s lifespan to achieve more even results.
Even professors who have incorporated directory structure into their courses suspect that they may be clinging to an approach that’s soon to be obsolete.
