👋 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. 🥰
All of these sorries raise the question of whether any harm is actually done when someone commits the sin of unavailability. Granted, there can be real consequences to responding slowly in a culture that considers idleness, or even just the appearance of it, to be a moral shortcoming.What If We Just Stopped Being So Available?
To design for systems rather than users, we must shift into a dynamic posture. Systems are ever-changing and success metrics are too limited a goalpost, instead we may be better served thinking in terms of incentives and consequences.Camera Obscura: Beyond the lens of user-centered design
Abstract thinking is essential in order to solve complex problems, come up with innovative ideas, and collaborate with other people. It allows us to analyse situations, understand new concepts, formulate theories, and to put things in perspective.The art and science of abstract thinking
People have made money through cryptocurrency speculation, those people are interested in spending that cryptocurrency in ways that support their investment while offering additional returns, and so that defines the setting for the market of transfer of wealth.My first impressions of web3
So much data had accumulated, he argued, and computers were already so much better than us at finding relationships within it, that our theories were being exposed for what they were – oversimplifications of reality.Are we witnessing the dawn of post-theory science?
As video conferences give an increased importance to the faces of the participants while hiding the rest of their body, measuring how individuals perceive the social traits of these faces is central to the impression formation.Impression Formation From Video Conference Screenshots: The Role of Gaze, Camera Distance, and Angle
These are the kinds of relationships — fleeting but indicative of significant eras in life — whose memories older generations may have kept neatly enclosed in picture albums as they, quite separately, moved on to different stages of life.Nostalgia for Nostalgia
The most important variable was the stories people told and the emotions they suddenly stumbled upon. And that was the only thing you couldn’t measure and couldn’t predict with foresight. That’s why the results don’t compute.Does Not Compute
So, my prediction is that young adults in their twenties increasingly choose to spend a decade of their lives living between a set of rented or swapped spaces around the world, working remotely, and immersing themselves in communities and cultures.
Zwicky’s strategy for solving problems and generating answers is simple. Take a problem, break it down into categories, add various values into each category, and link the values together to create unique combinations.
Steve’s first pass is to eliminate images that fail to meet basic standards of technical merit. Shots that are over- or underexposed are rejected, as are out-of-focus images. Even when there are elements that Steve likes in the image, such as expression or composition, he rejects the shot if the technical aspects are not right.
When a single metric is used to determine success or failure, human beings are likely to try to optimize their behavior to improve that metric — sometimes with ridiculous or dangerous consequences. People manage the metric, rather than using the metric to help manage the underlying issue of interest.
What is striking is not the machine’s humanness, but the lengths we are forced to go to become compatible with the machine.
If you talk to mental health experts on college campuses, they’ll tell you that along with the rise of ubiquitous smartphone use and social media use among the students on the campus, came an explosion of anxiety-related disorders on those campuses. That’s the canary in the coal mine.
Infants learn how to interact with their surroundings and discover ways to change their environments from their caregivers, and children learn to regulate their behaviors from observing their parents and caregivers.
The lack of language affects even functions that do not seem to be intrinsically “linguistic,” such as math. Developmental research shows that keeping track of exact numbers above four requires knowing the words for these numbers.
The way Goldstein describes it, non-attachment is about not holding on to anything that happens in life, whether those are experiences, events, or thoughts. That’s the difference with detachment, which means you pull away from something. Applying this concept in your life will have a huge difference in the way you live.
Never view falling as failure. See the truth of it as I did. Falling down is a necessary part of trial and error in motion. Observe the newborn attempting to walk or the young gymnast attempting to tumble. They succeed or learn. Win-Win!
And you surround yourself with a bubble of love, other teachers who can support you and tell you, “Yes, you deserve care. You are a valuable, educated, wonderful human being. You are not just, you know, Darth Vader dealing with these kids. You are a valuable person who deserves resources, who deserves care, who deserves love, who deserves freedom to oscillate.”
We can help remote workers get on top of their workloads and mitigate work-life balance conflicts by moving away from hyper-responsiveness and real-time communication towards greater asynchronous communication — the type that truly gives people the freedom to decide when and where to work.
Reputation is the aggregation of ideas that have swarmed your body. Reputation is a list of your chronic afflictions.
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.
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.
Once a view becomes part of your identity it’s almost impossible to see its flaws, when it needs to adapt, or has expired.
