Danny Huynh Creations' Yutani Chainsaw Trike is an animatronic android with chainsaw-style front drivetrain and wheels at the rear for stability. It’s not just for looks it’s a fully operational RC vehicle [full video: https://buff.ly/3BFJPBo]
Interested in how racial bias shapes tech & design? The Race After Technology Book Club has evolved into a seminar, open to anyone working in Tech/Design fields!
the (anti)dialogical cards for design education made by @marcomazzarotto and @bibianaserpa are published here as a free download. it is a great way to introduce Paulo Freire's concepts to design students! https://www.designeopressao.org/cartasdialogicas/
Thinking about getting some hci.social swag👕. What image do you like more?
🦫 Capybara. Because of cute social animal
🧵 Thread. Because of conversation threads, and because Mastodon's threading is confusing.
@andresmh @karger The local timeline is not specific to your account. It's all full-visibility posts that have been posted by any user on your instance; it will appear the same to every user on your instance (unless you've muted or blocked someone on your instance, and then their posts won't appear for you and only you).
No one who's not on your instance will appear on the local timeline even if you follow them, and no post that's been posted with less than full visibility (i.e. Unlisted, Followers-Only, or Direct) will appear there.
"The essence of the [design] process is the fact of different people coming together and meeting – holding a conversation rather than following a recipe. (...) ⚠️ FIRST, the #context of that encounter – its histories, its #politics, those who are present and ** those who are not **, the #authorities (...) SECOND, the #bidirectionality of the exchange." -- Lilly Irani & colleagues >> https://doi.org/10.1145/1753326.1753522)
Are you using Mastodon through a computer?
Do you wish there was a multi-column TweetDeck-style interface?
There is! It's called the "advanced web interface" and you can activate it any time you want. It lets you add many specialised columns, subscribe to hashtags and all kinds of stuff suited to large wide displays.
Log into the website, go to Preferences > Enable Advanced Web Interface, tick the box and click "Save Changes".
(To restore the default single column interface, do the same thing but untick the box instead.)
This used to be the default interface on Mastodon, and very old articles about the platform will have screenshots of the multicolumn interface.

"#desing is the conscious and intuitive effort to impose meaninful order. (...) The 'rightness' of any design solution will depend on the meaning with which we invest the arrangement." — Victor Papanek
Do you have any?
#introduction Hello there. I am an #HCI researcher and educator, super interested in #tech #design that counters #cultural biases and #oppression. I am working at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, US. I love #coffee, #books, #photography, and long-distance #cycling. I intend to toot about my research field and learning process (for example, on #decolonial design).
This Mastodon server is by and for the community of human-computer interaction researchers. On the surface, Mastodon is like Twitter. However, the difference is that it is open-source, decentralized, and federated. This server is sponsored by @Princeton HCI and administered by a growing committee of volunteers.
