Every day, I share on Twitter and LinkedIn a list of curated articles I read, resources and tools about UX Design, User Research, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, some process, some inspiration, etc. This is an archive of everything I shared this week.
Visit for a surprise: Eric Bailey turned a conversation we had about easter eggs and accessibility into a very interesting article. Could spoiling a joke be an accessibility issue? You better believe it. Also, did you find the easter egg on my homepage yet?
“MVP” – the most misused term in tech. A much better definition of Minimum Viable Product is the version of the product that helps you test your most critical assumption. It is NOT: bad design, bad code, something that could harm the company’s reputation
Knowledge structures: many structured ways of knowing seem to roughly fall into one of several spatial structures: lists, trees, grids, and networks.
Here is a cute map of most common dreams by countries. I’m not sure I trust dream meanings, but I am glad I am not the only dreaming about fallen teeth. There is no school related stuff in here though, I am alone? Like “I attend my class because I could not find the schedule. Also I missed some classes and can’t find anyone to share the notes. Wait, I already have a master degree, why do I even care” kind of dream? Also to be clear: this data is absolutely not scientific, it’s based on an analysis of google search data, so there’s a sample bias here. But I’m still super curious and I love how they presented it, because I’m a map and dataviz geek.

I really liked the “Is a UX Research Career Right For Me?” podcast from Debbie Levitt. A lot of awesome information to know if this is a career for you, but honestly also, a lot of debunking about UX myth questions everyone should listen to!
Episode 5 of Bridging the Rift is out. The part about the show creator expecting to get death threats, like “the players are going to be unmerciful” is so mess up and sadly shows the toxicity of that community and game industry even when a show is amazing.
