7 Things This Week, 2023-02-12
A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ Here’s a solid piece on Birchtree comparing touch/tap targets on a MacBook Pro and an iPad mini. There’s not as big of a difference in target size as you might expect. [🔗 Matt Bircher // birchtree.me]
2️⃣ Loved this badass climbing film, Pretty Strong, of all female climbers and filmmakers. [🎥 Never Not Collective // vimeo.com]
3️⃣ Here’s a neat music album collage generator if you use Last.fm. [🔗 tapmusic.net] (Via Robb Knight)
4️⃣ David Smith found a fantastic use for ChatGPT. He’s speeding up language localization for his apps. It’s neither perfect nor all-encompassing, but it’s certainly a useful tool to ease getting from 0 to 1. [🔗 @_DavidSmith // mastodon.social]
5️⃣ Speaking of handy tools, simpleicons.org is another free one that I think I’m going to get a ton of use out of down the road. [🔗 simpleicons.org]
6️⃣ If you’re from my neck of the woods and are into playing outside in the winter, the Adirondack Community Avalanche Project is something that should be on your radar. It just got onto mine. [🔗 adkavy.org]
7️⃣ And here’s a fun one. My wife turned me onto these bird feeders that are basically reverse bay windows that get the birds into your house for observation! So I guess we’ll be building one of those when we own a home. [🎥 Jesica Kia // tiktok.com]
