Hey #a11y people!
An interview let me to some questions about allowing the user to customise their own experience. Do some scenarios justify an a11y menu with customisation options?
I have written down some thoughts and open questions I still have.
i'd rather use software that's kinda rough around the edges but which lets me control updates and improves with every release than software that's better polished but which can forcibly break my machine without my consent
GitHub actions provide virtual environments, e.g. Ubuntu which is used almost everywhere. With imo weird pre-installed tools.
Like Alibabi Cloud, Netlify and the .NET Core SDK...
The docker image is HUGE.
What if I told you there was a single intervention we could deliver in our cities that would cool them during heatwaves, reduce flooding, scrub pollutants from the air, boost biodiversity, improve public health, and even reduce crime? You wouldn't believe me. But it's true.
I wrote about the process of how I generate PR's when new #webmentions are received.
Tested with @firstname.lastname@example.org
and it works beautifully!
By not taking care of accessibility, a team takes away the self-sustainability of real people.
Thats a lot of power, and an equal amount of responsibility.
hey all, here's a new computer thing I made! it's called the Nonsense Laboratory, and it's a series of weird little tools for manipulating the spelling and sound of words with machine learning: https://artsexperiments.withgoogle.com/nonsense-laboratory/
it's part of a series of projects launched yesterday showing the outcomes of the Artists + Machine Intelligence grant program, which you can learn more about here: https://experiments.withgoogle.com/ami-grants
when i was in the fledgeling XR group in san diego (yeah, I know) i brought up that the 5G rollout was going to destroy a lot of fairly old trees in the area and INSTANTLY got a bunch of "yeah and the EVIL DEATH RAYS" back from these 40 yr olds
things that are bad about many 5G rollouts:
- because range is short, it requires use of a LOT of land, some by eminent domain (womp womp)
- that spectrum could be WAY better used for other stuff
- it's a totally pointless technology
It's exciting getting an idea from 0 to 1%, fun from 1% to 50%, somewhat ok from 50% to 90%. 90-99% is a grind, and that last 1% typically never gets finished.
Like HELLO #emoji support 😭🙏🙇
