Basically do the opposite of what this article says. Saying x is an anti-pattern because people use it wrong is not an argument against x. It is against using it wrong.

“Color is an anti-pattern because many people don’t check contrast” is not a thing.

Von der Partei, die meint Klimaschutz dürfe den Wohlstand nicht gefährden, Meinungsfreiheit müsse reguliert werden und Frauen dürften nicht selbst über ihren Uterus bestimmen, jetzt der nächste große Hit:

Nochmal zum Mitschreiben: hier erklärt der Innenminister, dass er Gesetze bewusst kompliziert macht, damit die Bürgerinnen und Bürger sie nicht verstehen und kritisieren können.

Accessibility pro tip:

Engineers can't solve problems that are rooted in faulty business or design decisions. They can _make compliant code_ to cover over those decisions. But it won't result in fundamentally better software if it's not conceived with inclusion in mind.

Adam Savage @donttrythis@twitter.com: “It’s time we move past the word ‘failure’...what we really mean is ‘iteration’.” Normalize this to make it easier for kids to know this is part of the process. Teaching to the test doesn’t do that.

This is fascinating. Apple devices, when asleep, will broadcast a rotating public key over bluetooth. Other Apple devices will pick it up and report the sighting to Apple.

No one except you (not even Apple) can read the location data since only you have the private key. twitter.com/iChris/status/1136

This talk from @beep@twitter.com at @naconf@twitter.com is amazing just amazing. He captures everything that I feel is wrong in the industry at the moment.
We can, we must, design this better.

Remind me again how Apple is purposely building obselecence into their products… Nope. Apple goes out of their way to build durable, functional products & keep them updated as long as possible. The original iPad Air I bought in 2013 is still used every day by one of my kids. twitter.com/Techmeme/status/11

Years making tech-agnostic accessible HTML patterns seemingly a waste.
Assuming framework developers cared about HTML output was a flawed premise.

Was die Ernährungsministerin tun könnte:
❌ Nährwertampel einführen
❌ konkrete Zucker-, Fett- & Salzreduktionsziele bestimmen
❌ klare Regeln für Lebensmittelwerbung, die sich an Kinder richtet, festlegen

✅ Werbevideo für Nestle drehen

It’s a major inflection point. We designed @glitch@twitter.com so it lets you create an app *without even logging in* and it breaks people’s minds to realize how much better privacy is when we never ask for user data up front. The belief that surveillance is necessary needs to be destroyed. twitter.com/levie/status/11360
