My programming work has had a direct influence on my design work, but not in a visually demonstrable way. Writing code requires breaking large problems down into smaller, more manageable tasks. I think about visual design the same way now. I don’t see typefaces as enormous groups of things to draw anymore.

Finstagrams!

Omid Cohensedgh, 19, a student at Columbia College, said his finstagram gives him an online platform for sharing inside jokes with a group of 25 people. “Me and my roommate have these posters of Drake on our wall, and it’s an inside joke that we’re obsessed with him,” Mr. Cohensedgh said. “I wouldn’t feel comfortable sharing photos of them with people who might not get it.”

on never failing

This software never crashes. It never needs to be re-booted. This software is bug-free. It is perfect, as perfect as human beings have achieved. Consider these stats : the last three versions of the program — each 420,000 lines long-had just one error each. The last 11 versions of this software had a total of 17 errors. Commercial programs of equivalent complexity would have 5,000 errors.

the awl

all day i thought about wearing a costume for this

…on the subway ride here there was a zombie sitting next to me playing solitaire on her iPod nano, a samurai trying to secure his sword to his belt by tying it up with excess fabric, and two Nicki Minajes with pink wigs and pink eyelashes dancing on those poles on subway cars that you hold on to so you don’t fall down when the train lurches.
