We are excited about Spring in the office, but still managing to get work done somehow. This week we're sharing about managing your physical and digital assets, common scheduling mistakes, visualizing garbage collection algorithms, an Internet map from 1973, and a craft beer branding guide.
Design & UX
We have a wide variety of topics this week to share, including: the iPhone VoiceOver feature, the importance of ACCURATE information, Instacart’s physical staging environment, file naming tips, and celebrating Adobe Illustrator turning 30.
And just like that, it’s March. Our reading topics this week include: why typography matters, is time tracking beneficial, using Lab color, and why you need internal IT.
We work hard to be in the know, and because of that we read a lot. Here’s a list of some topics we’re reviewing this week: faster-than-light communication, better layouts and images, against multitasking, Facebook privacy, and surviving social media.

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to guest lecture before the Web Design students at Wake Technical Community College on the similarities between Usability, Accessibility, and SEO, a topic I first addressed here in 2009. Since my initial blog post, I assembled a talk, which I presented at BarCampRDU, and at Internet Summit 2010 in Raleigh last November.
