  • Posted to The Real Reason We Procrastinate and How to Stop, Jan 19, 2021

    I like the perspective of procrastination as an issue of regulating emotions, not managing time. What Motivates Getting Things Done by Mary Lamia goes into much more depth on this

    Good overview. I'm a fan of labeling assumption-driven personas as "provisional personas" and elaborating on that up front, in case more research isn't done to back things up.

  • Posted to Why “Remember Me” on Logins Should Be the Default, Dec 17, 2020

    I strongly resist this approach. Why make it harder for public computer users to practice better security? This would force them to tick a "Log me out after my session" checkbox that's presumably unchecked by default. This is punishing them for the minor inconvenience of checking "Remember me" on personal computers. So the new default is personal computer users have a minor inconvenience removed while public computer users get less security. Forgetting to check an authentication option shouldn't leave you more exposed, it should just ask you to authenticate again. That's exactly why "Remember me" isn't the default; usability shouldn't compromise security.

    And if we assume casual users are confused by "remember me," do we really think "after my session" is an improvement? What's a session? When is after? Who decides one ends?

  • Posted to G Suite is now Google Workspace (with new logos), Oct 06, 2020

    "Google Workspace" is a clearer name than "G Suite," but boy do I hate those icons. The colors are on-brand but they all just kind of bleed together. The red & white simplicity of Gmail's icon and the blue & white of Google Calendar are entirely lost. I don't know what is going on with that fourth icon. I hope that doesn't replace the Docs, Sheets, and Slides, which are currently really easy to distinguish by color alone.

  • Posted to Sketch 64—Tints, a new Components Menu and more — what’s new in Sketch?, Mar 23, 2020

    I won’t update for a week (per team policy), but curious about anyone brave enough to dive in.

    1. Do Tints help simplify color overrides?

    2. Does the Components menu feel like an improvement or a step back?

  • Posted to New Clock for Mac: Subclock, Mar 09, 2020

    Neat idea, but thousands of combinations for how to view time is not a benefit for me—it's intimidating. How about a few curated presets? Help me understand scenarios where a new format is most helpful (e.g. 24h format because I work with someone in Europe, week numbers because that's how we number sprints, etc.)

    At a quick glance, is the only difference between Lite and the built-in macOS Clock that you can view sub seconds?

    Nit pick: the download button becomes an illegible all white on hover.

    Social Media Image Presets seem handy. Otherwise seems like minor improvements.

  • Posted to Sketch: Introducing Cloud Inspector — free developer handoff in the browser, Jan 30, 2020

    I'm excited to see more holistic competition for InVision. This makes it easier and easier to stay within Sketch and not pay the same rate for developers to inspect as designers to create prototypes.

    Forthcoming updates seem like they're attacking DSM as well.

    The fonts look lovely, but I'm uninspired by the new logo. The old one, especially the icon and color scheme, were distinct and lively. This is more professional, but also far more forgettable.
