7 Things This Week [#78]
A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ I found this guide to writing image descriptions immensely helpful. I like to work within frameworks, so the Object-Action-Context idea gives me a structure to go off of. [🔗 Alex Chen // uxdesign.cc]
2️⃣ Scotty Jackson makes a great point about AI in this post. It reminds me of the Ted Lasso quote, “Be curious, not judgmental.” [🔗 HeyScottyJ // heyscottyj.com]
3️⃣ The Climb on HBO Max is…interesting. It’s almost like watching a satire of rock climbing but knowing that it’s trying to be serious. I can’t fully recommend it, but I’m going to keep watching. [📺 The Climb // hbmomax.com]
4️⃣ Apple is playing a game that works with their newest TV+ ad. [📺 Call Me with Timothée Chalamet // youtube.com]
5️⃣ Matt Birchler had the most accurate headline about Twitter’s third-party API demise this past week. [🔗 Matt Birchler // birchtree.me]
6️⃣ The news that AmazonSmile is shutting down was a huge bummer to me, too. I’ve made a point to always use AmazonSmile because every little bit helps. The Verge had a great postmortem and an even better suggestion to Amazon on how it could have more transparently broken the news. [🔗 Barbara Kransoff // theverge.com]
