Your mostly Mossy technology update, week 36Author: Mossy Breen
I’ve started collecting links that go past my Twitter feed, Facebook stream, Slack channels and many other news sources (read: distractions). These are my notable saves from this week. P.S. this won’t be weekly, I’m not a machine!
Designing for Website accessibility. A nice checklist of, mostly obvious, but often overlooked details on designing for visual impairments and other disabilities. The internet is is like any other public space. It should be open and accessible to all who wish to use it.
IBM’s new smart chip. We still haven’t figured out why our brain is so powerful. Okay, we (not me, scientists) have a fair idea why it’s powerful. I find it interesting that the faster chips are the ones trying to mimic a neural network.
The feature guy. You don’t always make software better by adding features. Sometimes, taking away features or polishing existing functionality is a better use of time.
Balancing bike stations. A discussion cropping up here a lot is the difficulty in keeping the Dublin Bikes stations with bikes and also with spaces. Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than we thought, and it’s not quite been solved yet.
