I hope everyone had a great post-4th week! We’re excited to share another week’s round-up with you yet again. We’re starting a new weekly feature, “from the archives”, where we’ll share a link that I saved to my Pocket account sometime in the last 6 years!
- A lot of our work involves synthesis and mapping of complexity, and it can be difficult to explain and teach, so we really appreciate these synthesis resources from the Stanford d.school (via Swissmiss).
- For some reason, Parks and Recreation quotes have been common in our office this week, so naturally, the soundtrack came up too.
- Who isn’t excited about the World Cup win??? We are, and we teared up when we saw that Barack Obama is too.
- Cycling safety is important to our team, so we ask that everyone learn the Dutch Reach method for opening car doors!
- PSA to watch out for this social security scam that we’ve been targeted by recently.
- Podcast recommendation: A shameless plug for my conversation with our friends at Whole Whale about information architecture and how it can improve user experience.
- From the archives: It’s always good to remember that a site map isn’t the best way to display a site architecture (from February 2016)
