Happy Monday

Monday, Monday, Monday, here you are again! Last week was unexpectedly busy at work (hello 12 hour days! It’s been a while!) hence the quiet couple of days. Luckily my weekend was slow and peaceful, the perfect breather after a super busy week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to tackle whatever is in store for this week. How about some good links to get the day going?

  • Apple finally announced a smart watch! It’s definitely interesting, from an industry point of view, but I’ll personally be passing on this version. This piece does a great job of voicing my own issues with the new device. It all boils down to this: the Apple Watch feels like a computer you happen wear on your wrist, not a watch that happens to check my email.
  • Use Your Interface is hands-down the best gif-based interface collection around. Definitely check it out if you haven’t come across it before!
  • Need some designy retail therapy to really get Monday going? I love this charming (and appropriately named!) script font Monday. Check out those pretty loops, swashes, and ligatures!

Monday Morning Kickstart

Thinking about hopping on the speaking circuit? Definitely read Kathy Sierra’s thoughts on presentation speakers-as-UI.

Julie Pagano published a wonderful overview of how to participate in feminist activism for us techies. This is definitely one to share!

One more link to keep around: How Do I Win an Argument About the Wage Gap?

It’s soft and quiet here in Portland, which is perfect get-writing-done weather! I’m looking forward to launching some updates to my website this week and putting together some longer-form posts for Venn. What are you up to this week?
