Pro­file: Tal Lem­ing

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.
