Feed Weekly #191 and #192
Feed weekly • March 17, 2023
Busy weeks, so we'll keep it short and sweet. Here are the latest links we’ve shared between us and talked about lately.
- Does AI require us to spend as much time moderating it, as we would finding answers to all sorts of questions ourselves? By jailbreaking ChatGPT, the revelation is, perhaps unsurprisingly, that the chatbot is programmed to be more of a people-pleaser than a rule-follower. The results are alarming, to say the least.
Design of the week
- Temporary Liveness proves you only need typography to create engaging design and interactions. That's not news to the savvy readers of this journal, so consider yourselves the smartest people in the room and get on with the enjoyment, okay.
- The most casual website by the most famous product designers Jony Ive and Mark Newson
- This creative copywriter right here is not worried about robots to take my job, but I do seriously worry, still, about developers making me redundant. I mean, how is is possible to rewrite and add insight to this statement: "Modern Font Stacks – System font stack CSS organized by typeface classification for every modern OS. The fastest fonts available. No downloading, no layout shifts, no flashes — just instant renders." So if you're into that, click the massive link.
- Zzzzz. Getting phased of all the greatness out there. What should we give this typographical wizardry, variable gradient pixelated goodness. A million of ten or something. Only apparent purpose of existing is to make everyone else feel antiquated. You can feel the same way by clicking onto Lena Weber's site.
- Freshness as usual from Sourcetype with the agricultural Reform typeface
- Another sleek site for Flanders Classics by favourites Bureau Borsche
- Let Akash Sendure show you a thing or two. Thing one is excellent implementation of data visualisation, expertly integrated in a useable and perfectly balanced we page. Second thing is the tonnage of CO2 private jets emit.
Tech of the week
- Eating your own medicine can be hard sometimes, but it seems to be an especially hard pill to swallow for Samsung. Just when we forgot about how they used an SDLR to create demo images for their latest and greatest smartphone a few years back, they're actually at it again. This time by "zooming" onto the moon with preexisting high-res imagery.
- Hey, you don't have to take Reddits word for it. Someone else at feed posted the same story, just through The Verge's proverbial lens. Since we don't have a massive amount of link this week, this counts okay.
- And yeah, who at Feed could forget about React. Yes, React.dev is still worth bookmarking if you haven't already. Please use it to create interfaces from components.
Here's to a better future for all.
