Design of the week
- Counterforms' price models for acquiring fonts vary in accordance to which country you are based in. This is a small, yet impactfull, way of bringing awareness to structural differences across countries and continents, and we applaud this attempt to fairness.
- Did you ever wonder where you could go down memory lane about a trend in Web Design since the internet was born? Then Web Design Museum is for you! You won't believe how bad Nexflix's design was when they started.

Tech of the week

- Chat-GPT humor. Who's tired of it already? Not us. Especially when it's about making Chat-GPT utter statements that are inoffensive to absolutely everyone on the planet.
- Helphub by CommandBar, is a custom ChatGPT and search engine for any site. A natural language interface that's been 3 years in the making!
