After a mini-break for stuffing-our-faces-with-Turkey day, we’re back! Since we’ve barely known what day it is all week, we’re going to skip the small talk and jump into it:
- As lovers of inclusion and the census, this segregation map from The New York Times (featured in the image above) is blowing our minds.
- We always love a reminder of the basics, and NNGroup does this best. Check out their latest on Usability Testing 101 to get a grasp on why to test, how to create tasks, and what type of research to conduct.
- I’ve never gotten tired of ‘how it’s made’ videos and this one is my latest obsession: 700-Year-Old French Mill.
- “Like Shakespeare’s soothsayer, algorithms often can predict the future with great accuracy but tell you neither what will cause an event nor why.” The human management of algorithms is very important!
- We can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard, “calling someone ‘they’ is just hard to do!” Don’t worry, there’s an app to practice!
- This week in beautiful things: a visual history of computing and the 2019 Information is Beautiful awards.
- Weekly podcast recommendation! This may have been more appropriate for around Halloween, but we can’t get enough of these spooky real-life stories on Radio Rental.
