What Screens Want, by Frank Chimero
- Some thoughts on digital canvases
- 20-30 minute reading time.
~ An absolutely fantastic read. Beautifully and thoughtfully presented.
~ Explores the computers, interfaces and perspectives we have on the world we humans have created.
~ If you’ve heard of computer, go read it. If you haven’t, you’re lying.
~ Ad for the latest HP Chromebook
~ Not sure I like the implication that it’s disposable, but the point on data backup is absolutely one of its major feature.
~ I’m now two and a half years into owning a ChromeOS devices, am now on my second (a Chromebox) and cannot advocate for them enough.
~ Keep, near zero maintenance, regular updates that take less than 30 seconds to run, and perfect for 99% of what I need to do. For that 1%, I borrow some time on a friend’s Mac or drag out my ancient Windows XP laptop.
~ The Dinesen website is a thing of beauty
~ Space, typography, imagery, responsiveness… Even the workflow on order a catalogue is calm & beautiful.
