The reckless, infinite scope of web browsers

I conclude that it is impossible to build a new web browser. The complexity of the web is obscene. The creation of a new web browser would be comparable in effort to the Apollo program or the Manhattan project.

A classic read.


Breaking the web forward

Safari is holding back the web. It is the new IE, after all. In contrast, Chrome is pushing the web forward so hard that it’s starting to break. Meanwhile web developers do nothing except moan and complain. The only thing left to do is to pick our poison.

This is actually why I prefer Safari.

Documents Are the Wrong Metaphor

So the author says. They say, the right metaphor is songs! This is non-sensical, documents are the right metaphor, and we should do our best to preserve it.

The author of the website claims to know a bit about hypertext, and they do, but look at this URL! How to fix it? UPD. From the computer I managed to close the extra tabs on the page which were not visible on the phone and fix the URL.


Screens, Research and Hypertext

Convivial Tools

Illich’s fundamental thesis in these three books - and throughout all of his work - is that the institutionalisation of competencies diminishes the individual’s ability to acquire them. Thus the institutionalisation of school diminishes our ability to learn, the institutionalisation of technology diminishes our ability to master tools, and the institutionalisation of medicine diminishes our ability to heal and to care for ourselves and others.


A Wheelchair is a Small Gundam by anna anthropy

Wheelchairs are beautiful, a marvel of technology. They are mech suits, cybernetic enhancements, they are machines that we join with in a nourishing symbiotic relationship. They are not prisons; wheelchairs are liberation. They are freedom, they are a walk in the park, they are the sunlight on my face after years in dark tunnels.

My note-taking process


Игорь рассказывает, как делает заметки.

Вложенные теги не нужны

Do not try to create a hierarchy (taxonomy) for your notes. It is not scalable and only works for narrow domain. Prefer tags.

Не понимал, зачем раскрашивать буквы в книжках, но Игорь пишет, что это полезно, когда есть комментарии

It is not useful to highlight without commenting. Writing summary is mandatory, highlighting is optional 1.

Default Browser Styles - Björn Wärmedal

Apart from that I rely very much on how browsers present my site, from the default font and size to the paragraph distance and the emoji set used. HTML was actually made to be responsive. It's a reflowing format that theoretically works on any screen size. But of course that won't be the case when there's things like sidebars or banners and stuff. And there pretty much always is.


The Surprising Truth About Pixels and Accessibility

The truth is, if you want to build the most-accessible product possible, you need to use both pixels and ems/rems. It's not an either/or situation. There are circumstances where rems are more accessible, and other circumstances where pixels are more accessible.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is Autocorrelation – Economics from the Top Down

The Dunning-Kruger effect states that incompetent people overestimate their competence. You've heard of that before, probably. Turns out, there is a major error in the statistics: the effect is actually nothing more than an autocorrelation. If we measure the stuff correctly, the effect disappears.

The role of cat eye narrowing movements in cat–human communication - Scientific Reports

Domestic animals are sensitive to human cues that facilitate inter-specific communication, including cues to emotional state. The eyes are important in signalling emotions, with the act of narrowing the eyes appearing to be associated with positive emotional communication in a range of species. This study examines the communicatory significance of a widely reported cat behaviour that involves eye narrowing, referred to as the slow blink sequence. Slow blink sequences typically involve a series of half-blinks followed by either a prolonged eye narrow or an eye closure. Our first experiment revealed that cat half-blinks and eye narrowing occurred more frequently in response to owners’ slow blink stimuli towards their cats (compared to no owner–cat interaction). In a second experiment, this time where an experimenter provided the slow blink stimulus, cats had a higher propensity to approach the experimenter after a slow blink interaction than when they had adopted a neutral expression. Collectively, our results suggest that slow blink sequences may function as a form of positive emotional communication between cats and humans.

The case for proportional programming fonts

Programming fonts are stuck in the past. Proportional typesetting is everywhere and
there is no reason why you can’t use it for code.
