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:]

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!

@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 of that encounter – its histories, its , those who are present and ** those who are not **, the (...) SECOND, the of the exchange." -- Lilly Irani & colleagues >>

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.

Tryint to keep the thought-provoking exercise alive... (started here

" 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?

"...the role is the construction of the 'interspace' in which people live, rather than an 'interface' with which they interact..." — Terry Winograd.

What are your favorite thought-provoking quotes around research and practice? 🤓

Poll for @ourhcicommunity: What are the boundaries for discourse ? Should it just be professional HCI-related topics? Other academic fields? ? politics and personal matters?

I also found this recipe => in case you prefer to give your permissions to a more well known enterprise. (I have not tested it though.)

If you want to crosspost between and => It's and all, but a bit scary considering you're giving so many permissions of your accounts to a small group of people running this as volunteers. (Or maybe this is exactly why I wanted to give it a try.) ;)

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.
