Engineering and Product Management

Art & Design

  • A wonderful video that uses Facebook Live’s time delay to build a song from its component tracks.
  • In publishing, it’s common to put filler text in designs to avoid people focusing on the text. Normally you use Lorem Ipsum which is a standard Latin text. However, you can also use some other fun filler texts like Bacon Ipsum, Cupcake Ipsum, and more.
  • Did you know that there’s a standard design to tell you if your gas cap is on the right or left of your car? This is useful for people like me that are always in rental cars.
  • Sometimes there’s a button for a collapsed menu called a hamburger menu. If you click on the hamburger menu on the bottom of the page at Kottke.org you are sent to posts about hamburgers.
  • The most famous medical map in the world, John Snow’s Cholera Map.
  • There’s a non-standard punctuation mark called the interrobang which is a combination of a question mark and exclamation point. Normally I’d write it as “?!” but using HTML code “‽” I can make the interrobang symbol as “‽”. Isn’t that exicting‽
