I was chatting with someone today, and said, "we should advertise these Apple HCI/AI internships on" and the response was, "why would we do that? @barik already works here and it's just you an him on there."

help prove the naysayers wrong!

we are looking for interns in accessibility, UI toolkits, infovis, learning sciences, ML fairness, lots of cool technical things at the intersection of HCI and ML!

DM me and I'll connect you to the right folks.

my first dalle-2 prompt attempt ... thank you thank you

BeReal: "For as much as the company preaches authenticity, what’s actually being transmitted is merely a different kind of performance. On many days since signing up for BeReal, I’ve been taking a nap or lying on the couch, staring at my phone, when the alert arrived. In most cases, I’ve either hurried to find something less embarrassing that I could plausibly be doing or simply skipped posting that day, thus missing out on the experience of Being Real entirely."

queued up to read: "No Grammar to Rule Them All: A Survey of JSON-style DSLs for Visualization" by Andrew McNutt

"we survey and analyze the design and implementation of 57 JSON-style DSLs for visualization. We analyze these languages supported by a collected corpus of examples for each DSL (consisting of 4395 instances) across a variety of axes organized into concerns related to domain, conceptual model, language relationships, affordances, and general practicalities."

I've been enjoying these two short books: Annotation and Content (MIT Press essential knowledge series)

"an Instagram account ... posted a stock photo of a plain brown chicken egg and launched a campaign to get the photo more likes than any online image had before. ... The account’s creators ... later teamed up with Hulu for a mental-health P.S.A. in which the egg “cracked” owing to the pressures of social media. The egg’s arc was the epitome of a certain kind of contemporary Internet success: gather a big enough audience around something—anything—and you can sell it off to someone."

reading this now: "Evaluating programming systems design"

it's also relevant to HCI systems builders in this community, not just those in programming-related tools research

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!


just saw Everything Everywhere All At Once again, was able to notice more of the delightful visual (and audio) details more the second time around

just saw Everything Everywhere All At Once ... no spoilers in this thread but it's the sort of movie that won't really be spoiled even if you read plot summaries (but please don't!). it's a cinematic experience reminiscent of when i first saw The Matrix in theaters
