7 Things This Week [#119]

A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1️⃣ I might have to get me one of these classic Mac hello” signs. It’s so diminutive and cute! [🔗 @camiel // schoonens.social]

2️⃣ In Review is a gorgeous new movie, TV, and book review blog written by Alexandra. Excellent design choices made here. [🔗 Alexandra // inreview.ca]

3️⃣ You can totally see space tools left behind by astronauts with just binoculars, which is wild! [🔗 Robert Lea // livescience.com] (Via Jason Kottke)

4️⃣ You’re not gonna want to miss this example of a program that uses AI vision and speech generation to have David Attenborough narrate a live webcam view. [🔗 Benj Edwards // arstechnica.com]

5️⃣ Gav and Dan with a very relatable slow-mo scene. 😂 [🔗 The Slow Mo Guys // youtube.com]

6️⃣ If you’re a Mastodon (or Micro.blog or ActivityPub…I should just say social web”) user, you should follow the (unofficial) @merlinwisdom@botsin.space. It’s an account that spits out a random entry from Merlin Mann’s Wisdom Project (which I’ve mentioned before) every six hours. I’ve used Shortcuts and widgets to surface these in the past, but there’s something to be said for them just popping up in a feed I’m already reading. [🔗 @merlinwisdom // botsin.space]

7️⃣ Count me in for Todd Vaziris Apple TV remote redesign proposal. I haven’t been particularly annoyed at my remote lately, but can’t deny that this would be an improvement. [🔗 Todd Vaziri // fxrant.blogspot.com]
