I feel kind of sad for any multiverse movies trying to make a go of it after “Everything Everywhere All At Once.”
IMO, process is a vehicle for turning ritual into instinct.

This law brewing in Louisiana is terrifying, cruel, despicable. Instead of life in prison, let’s give women compassion and agency over their own bodies and futures—you know, like the last fifty years of settled law.
Expand civil liberty for all. Expand everyone's agency in their own future. Expand confidence in our personal safety. Those are values this country purports to be about. Yet our core institutions are actively fighting them. It's despicable, and we can't sit by while it happens.
A note to men: this is not a women's issue, though the battleground is certainly on women's bodies. This affects us all. This is an assault on families, on justice, on racial & class equity. DON'T BE QUIET. Be enraged for women, yes, but also for a country that has lost its way.
Had a great time chatting with Todd about the origins of Couch to 5K and how fitness content and UX continues to evolve (and is finally starting to embrace more people who don’t look like me). twitter.com/focpodcast/sta…
While my video gives the flavor, I wish I had taken pics and video of the night hours, more van life, and the other 37 teams. Next time! (We’re already plotting the next one.) youtu.be/54IHJs7_M2k
The whole thing was amazing. We really did something together, and I’m so proud of us. Tired legs and a full heart.
It took us 32 hours. We ran through the night, catching sleep in the woods where we could, but always on on on. Rachael held it down for the millennials, Danny showed us what 72 years old looks like, and the rest of us 50-year olds did just fine.
My weekend: I ran in a relay across 208 miles and up 22,564 feet in @smokymtnrelay. My bit was 32 miles. It was super fun, crazy hard, definitely stupid, and I’m so excited for the next one. I made a video for you. youtu.be/54IHJs7_M2k #smokymountainrelay #smrtough
So this is what I'll be doing this weekend. 206 miles through the Smoky Mountains. youtube.com/watch?v=afxOXM…
So much of what we argue about is “freedom from” versus “freedom to.”
As it happens, my day ahead is likewise all about laundry and taxes.
Just got out of “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” Still processing that glorious chaotic fun sad amazing confection of a film, but… I think it might just be the best thing I’ve ever seen.
I just did not see any of it coming. That feels pretty rare these days. I say: Salud, Severance. Salud.
I just figured, low key night, I’ll watch the season finale of Severance, and it will be chill. Low key, he said. Chill, he said. 😶
One of those evening where I really wanted to have mushroom risotto and a salad… but really DID NOT feel like making it. But I made it, and now I am flush with triumph! Take the wins where you can, friends, and take good care of each other.
And here it is, happening. Wishing for the best, prepared for the worst. The worst seems to have the moment. Let’s see what good people can do.
Time zones. Get the whole world to agree to sync time to to the minute. All because railroads needed a reliable timetable in the 18th century, when time had otherwise been kept by local clock keepers based on the zenith of the sun.
Taxes. Ask every corporate employer and every individual worker to share what they pay/earn and then extract a percentage of that amount, to be paid by everyone on the exact same day—and count on that unlikely system to fund a nation’s government.
The census. Ask every person in the country—often in person, at their front door—about who they are and how they live and then turn that data into a portrait of the nation, and apportion resources accordingly.
Public library. Gather as much knowledge as we can print on paper, and invite people to take pieces home for free. When I was a researcher for public tv before web, my best trick was to call Boston library’s reference desk. Took 5 mins for answer but more reliable than google
Postal mail. Write an address—anywhere in the world—on an envelope, and drop that envelope in a metal box on your street corner. For the cost of a few pennies, the envelope will silently arrive at the address you wrote a few days later.
What’s your favorite example of a mundane yet outrageously audacious idea? Here’s one: the OG phone book. Print a book filled with the names and phone numbers of everyone in the city and hand-deliver a copy at no cost to the doorstep of everyone in town. See also: newspapers.
Last week's workshop with @bigmediumjosh left us with such insightful #AI and machine learning design principles that @Adobe #ux practitioners are excited to apply 🤩

The @dotdashmeredith rise to top US publisher has been frankly miraculous, now embracing a slew of iconic brands. It was a treat to help work out messaging & architecture for new site dotdashmeredith.com (They called it “the Clarkitecture” 😂 but truly a great team effort.)
"The Most Exciting Design Systems Are Boring" by my partner in crime @bigmediumjosh is one article I reference again and again and again. bigmedium.com/ideas/boring-d…

This was a lot of fun. (Among other things, learn what you should not inject into your artery.) twitter.com/julesmahe/stat…
Great design systems embody a company's digital standards. But not all those standards should live wholly within the system. So who owns what? @brad_frost: "Design systems are systems of systems, but not all systems are part of the design system." bradfrost.com/blog/post/desi…
“Ultimately, when we prioritise speed over quality, we end up with neither.” Good stuff from @Amy_Hupe on managing design-system timelines and expectations! twitter.com/Amy_Hupe/statu…
(For anyone who cares to follow along tomorrow, I’m in bib 10098, and I’m in wave 2 starting at 9:55am.)
The NYC Marathon and I both turned 50 this year, so there really isn’t any choice but to run the thing. Tomorrow’s the day! Did a shakeout run this morning on the last Central Park miles of the course. Excited, nervous, ready.

When I was a kid, I was 100% convinced that a Halloween cape would let me fly. Jumped off the washing machine several times with my superman cape before going back to the drawing board disappointed. But now I'm thinking... maybe Burberry...? youtube.com/watch?v=iCbfq_…
In design systems, it's worth differentiating themes vs contexts vs modes in visual layer. They can mix & match, so keep em decoupled. • Theme = visual language for brand/product • Context = medium (tv vs phone vs car dashboard vs desktop) • Mode = light/dark mode e.g.
As in all things, language matters. In design systems, consistency and specificity are essential. @brad_frost shares a great example that pops up a lot in our work: "dark mode" vs "inverted." bradfrost.com/blog/post/dark…
We have an incredible panel for the first Design System Discussions: Adoption, discussing the most pressing issues in design systems today 😍 Join panel@Amy_Hupee,@HaggertyVillaa &@bigmediumjoshh in our first webinar �eventbrite.co.uk/e/design-syste…kb2

Come to this! I'm really looking forward to having this conversation with @Amy_Hupe, @HaggertyVilla and @zeroheight! Excited to share how Big Medium has guided the adoption of design systems at some mighty big companies—and even more excited to learn from Amy and Michael. twitter.com/zeroheight/sta…
"Making a life while making a living." Love that tagline for the new podcast "Reconsidering" from @aarron, @ThisIsBobBaxley and @MsMeredithBlack. If ever there was a time to consider (and reconsider) what and why we do, this is it. reconsidering.org
This #designsystem master class feels like a new movie releasing based on your fav book and your fav actors are the top cast 😍@danmalll@brad_frostt@bigmediumjoshh invisionapp.com/design-system-…5

If you're interested in more Couch to 5K backstory, the BBC made a 4-min film and a 9-min radio story about it a couple of years ago. bigmedium.com/ideas/bbc-how-…
I chatted with CNN to share tips for new runners, plus the origin of Couch to 5K. (Stories I hear from C25K finishers floor me—less about fitness, more about new sense of self: confidence to apply for new job, propose marriage, take new risks. Amazing.) cnn.com/2021/07/02/hea…
Help? 1. I want to watch Tokyo Olympics. 2. I want to watch complete unedited events, including 2+ hour events like marathon. 3. I want to watch on demand, time shifted as much as a day or 2 later. 4. I’m in US, no cable. What’s my answer? I’m thinking Hulu+ Live TV…? Or…?
