Calling all 99ers

 

A few Unreal teamsters are placing their bets on an UT99 Renaissance. Simply by updating their media to an international web standard.

 

 

 

The slow web

Suddenly I felt the sensation of longing for a French come back

 

 

In the following of what happened in Paris and its rapid succession, it occured, that an acceleration took place and reduced the space which the spreading of the information took, although it analog spread from Paris onto France and Europe, onto the entire world.

The world is getting smaller and the distance for news to travel is getting shorter. While a digital fact, you would like to believe that the people analog would get closer to one another.

Few weeks ago, I suddenly felt a desire for France to come back, and here it is with the assault on Charlie Hesbo, in sharp contrast to Peteski’s laconic, recurring, silly motives with the caption »Paris n’existe pas«.

The faster the web , the more opportunity for anyone who faces a computer display for most of the day, to take the time you feel fit for work at hand. You work at your own pace, not only to achieve the best results, but to actually enjoy space and time granted for doing and getting done what consumes you and you do it so it happens at our fullest satisfaction.

If, as I like to place my bets on, the web favors a continuation of the age of enlightenment in 18. Century, in the early 21. Century, then peace enters as a consequence of excitement and uproar.

With the increase of speed in knowledge transfer, people gain on time to enable them to manage.

 

 

The slow web

It’s a slow web, that allows for the time you need, to do and get done as you see fit.

You respond to incoming mail when you see fit, and you respond to a knock at the door only if you see fit for the visitor and a visit is welcome.

Some waves as they finally break on shore as they used to.

Voices are being heard, that the perpetual beta state has never justified the launch of half-ready products on the market. Software should again be as it used to be, a final packaged good and turn key application ready and reliably performing for professional use.

Affinity professinal publishing suite by Serif Europe Ltd.

 

 

Remember the days before the internet and the Apple store became a reality? When software came ready made in packages? When it didn’t take months after you purchased the software for it to be tweaked so you could start using it after another purchase of version 2.0? When software was financed by its price tag and not by in-app added purchases and advertising. When customers were respected, instead of trading their data behind their backs, stealing their address books and reporting every push of a button to third parties, all while you were harassed with facebook likes and evaluations buggers? Affinity Designer seems to come from such former times. It’s good software brought to completion before it hits the shelves and it comes without loop holes – something, I haven’t seen in a long time. Thanks. Whatever you put out next, I’ll buy it.

A website that builds itself

October 22nd, 2014 Comments off

 

 

AI generierte Webseiten von © The Grid

 

 

Join the evolution
Your message should shape the medium. Now it does with #TheGrid. Join the evolution.

 

 

Yesterday at the IT summit in Hamburg, German chancellor Angela Merkel gave the right away for the digital future for Germamy and Europe, while Tyler Hayes is consumed with practicalities:

 

 

The Grid Is The Website Of The Future:
It Builds Itself

Money does not need a bank…” What we need is an application not a bank… Websites don’t need design, they need content. And collecting content, photos, texts, videos, is the stuff everyone enjoys interacting with. This is where your responsibilities ends. Step aside, the Grid, takes on the rest for $96 per year.

That is less than what Squarespace asks with monthly costs varying from $8 – $24 /MO for a most elegant and easy to use interface with there one stop solution.

And is more than what Tumblr or WordPress cost you. Which is your time and endurance.

The quesiton is, if either, The Grid (AI-generated design), Ghost (Just a blogging platform), Squarespace (Better websites for all), can match the dynamic currently offered by WordPress. It remains to be seen if each can gather the required following and user base to continuously support updating and development of components that make up the platforms.

Dynamics are then a given when a large number of developers are dedicated to work on the components (themes, plugins, widgets…) driven by inner pressure and persistant with updating.

Get the insights from Tyler Hayes.

The underpinnings for The Grid come from Grid Style Sheets (GSS) which was created by Tocchini. It’s a reimagining of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) which also replaces a browser’s layout engine with one that uses the Cassowary constraint solver.

A Swede redesigns Finnland’s identity

Finnland’s nazis have hijacked their national symbols like elsewhere in the world too. They decided to recreate a national identity and introduce it at Eurobest in Dezember.

Watch where the beautification of Finnland is going.

100% a Swede, Henrik Nygren, has been assigned with the redesign. His web presence is horribly pretentious though and boring.

Aaron Dignan: Digital Isn’t Software, It’s a Mindset

 

 

The most dominant companies, no matter the industry, are digital-first. Think Netflix over Blockbuster or iTunes over Tower Records. So how can we take advantage of this trend in our work and with our own projects?
Aaron Dignan walks us through how we can have the right mindset to thrive in the future: We need a purpose, a process to support it, the right people, and (most importantly) these need to combine to make products that serve a community larger than any employee or organization. Dignan shows off plenty of examples and tells us what to adopt for our own work. “When we look at the companies that are really dominating, this is what they are doing.”

Aaron Dignan ist CEO and founding partner of New York agency Undercurrent. Undercurrent continues from were McKinsey left of. They help ambitious teams and their organisations discover the courage and capabilities to do the impossible.

Gentleman of the year

This is great.

Beatsteaks documentation of a new aesthetic.

 

 

There is plenty of brilliant hipster music out there. But when you can no longer have the whining, the beat must go on. And now the beat goes on in Germany. Please welcome the Beatsteaks, Yeah.

 

 

The beat must go on in Germany

Best outdoors ad. Best use of typography. Best practice of new aesthetics (video). Best male dance. Best song. Beat be better sung in English.

I am dearly reminded of my close friend Ernst Auerbacher. Thank you Beatsteaks.
