@aajhiggs I use it. It's useful when you just want to quickly pick an arbitrary color. Sorta like the one now inbuilt into Pages/Numbers etcI just noticed how the crayons in the colour picker look on Yosemite! http://t.co/DUbWGPmGRh

@iainspad @jefflembeck @beep With any (non life-endagering) vocation, it should be more about experience than a formal education.@StuRobson Works for me on my 5. I recon the next major release will be the one to cripple em!I know this has been asked before, but can you sound off if you're a developer without a degree? I need your help with something.

If like me, you use accessibility to zoom in at a pixel level to check icons etc then this Yosemite preference is 👌 http://t.co/aYwGw9KCJ1

My spare time seems to be rapidly filling up with writing articles. Strange how I'm good at time management 9-5 but not outside these hours.

@alpower Seems unnecessary to create a made up element. The class should be enough for CSS/JS. And a made up element has no semantics.@alpower Well the sticky element is not an element at all. Are Apple just making up elements these days?

@benhowdle Wow, that's nasty. Reminder to self - never let a domain expire, even if I'm not using it any more!Our cat is so happy go lucky that even when we shut him under the stairs he just has a nap and waits for someone to come home!Does anyone know the twitter account for "Alexander Gibbons" of http://t.co/xWKmVH8Q9F? I've got a fix to make his service work again.Just discovered http://t.co/QlERnVc5LB. Allows you to use Github raw files directly in your projects with the right Content-Type header

@paul_kinlan @fronteersconf After crashing my browser 4 times, I finally managed to download the PDF from @SlideShare!@mikebarker It's very difficult to support fallbacks for icon fonts. Whereas for SVG, it's easy to fall back to a PNG.@mikebarker One issue is, even if you use the private unicode range, some devices (namely Blackberries) will display symbols.@mikebarker Not tried it, but https://t.co/SXYePIq8I1 will make web fonts. Or there's https://t.co/uHDfgKD5pJ@mikebarker Not icon fonts per say, but for automating SVG icon sprites (Base64 CSS) with PNG fallbacks, try https://t.co/HIdRxvCnLj

After the Hans Zimmer concert last night, we are watching Pirates of the Caribbean and Inception back to back. Good times!Just spotted a deer in Waltham Woods@tmaslen @andyhume Good to know! :-), I'll make sure that team get's full credit!@andyhume Yeah, I got it (http://t.co/08cEZmX4zU). Thanks!Before I write the wrong thing in an article, did the BBC first coin the use of "Cutting the Mustard" to describe the non-js experience?

Retweeted by Josh Emerson@aegirthor @wordridden @shanehudson @hyper_linda @ntlk You peeps are the best!@andrewdavidfox @rrhoover Likewise, I should probably study design & UX. I have informal knowledge of both, but could do much better.@andrewdavidfox @rrhoover Definitely! If you work with programmers/developers (which you do) then it should make you better at your role.@andrewdavidfox @rrhoover T-Shaped individuals make great teams. You don't need to specialise in everything, but know enough to collaborate.@shanehudson @wordridden @hyper_linda @ntlk Unfortunately, that word always conjures this image for me! http://t.co/scKiu72aHS@gridinoc @ntlk @hyper_linda And by bad people (with regard to gender pronouns), we mean every single member of society. You and I included.@gridinoc @ntlk @hyper_linda The culture creates the dictionary, and thereafter the dictionary shapes the culture.@paulrobertlloyd But how else can the offer targeted advertising?!@gridinoc @hyper_linda @alsothings @hyper_linda If we did we would be prejudiced. Which is exactly my point.@gridinoc @hyper_linda @alsothings @hyper_linda Also, we don't differentiate by genetics, wealth, weight or many other factors at this level@gridinoc @hyper_linda @alsothings @hyper_linda When the differentiation leads to prejudice and hate, it's worth avoiding.@hyper_linda @shanehudson @ntlk Wow, I struck gold! http://t.co/gmlGZhZRwS. "Hey posse!"@gridinoc @hyper_linda @alsothings @hyper_linda A collective word for girls and women (and all other humans) is "Person". Why distinguish?@hyper_linda @shanehudson @ntlk Again, I wish there were more gender-neutrals. Something informal and friendly to say "Hey people!"@shanehudson @hyper_linda @ntlk Surely "Who are they? The cat's parent" is a good replacement here. (I'm being serious btw)@shanehudson @hyper_linda @ntlk Also, I may be wrong here, but I tend to think "guys" can apply to women as well as men (e.g. Hey guys!).@shanehudson @hyper_linda @ntlk I almost never say man/woman. Tend to say they/someone/person (depending on context).See every thumb print!! @AmazingMorph stars in our first ever 4K animation, have a watch right here: https://t.co/bcVSWtfiAD #aardman
Retweeted by Josh Emerson@jamfactory @amazingmorph Morph has come a long way! You must have to be so much more detailed with him these daysGreat post by @hyper_linda on gender stereotypes. https://t.co/hdFzSu2XtA@hyper_linda @ntlk The thing is, gender is a continuum rather than a binary state. I am x% masculine and x% feminine. As you say, baby steps@hyper_linda @ntlk Because it sets gender as the main agenda, when who you are is not defined by your gender. http://t.co/JIjxTRTr8I@hyper_linda @ntlk Personally I think that gender pronouns are severely damaging and wish we used gender-neutral pronouns.@hyper_linda @ntlk Yeah, I know. Just scrolled back through the conversation history to see how it turned to gender. Makes no sense.@ntlk Oh and I'm not saying that's what he said, but that's what he _should_ have said! He didn't say that… I did.@ntlk Maybe to (completely) reword "gender should have no bearing on the way we treat people". The word _should_ being key here.@smashingmag @Souders Do Android webviews support hardware acceleration in canvas yet? Was a real issue for us on a project we got 10fps.Just found @kylebean's old DeviantART account! http://t.co/15jBYYflsD

@hyper_linda @neil_pie @markdurbin104 @foamcow Don't you think it works both ways? Ppl don't know difference between "male" and "masculine"@markdurbin104 @hyper_linda @neil_pie @foamcow Then they should use the words "masculine", "feminine" and "neutral".@hyper_linda @neil_pie @markdurbin104 @foamcow Part societal issue, but part an education thing I think.@hyper_linda @neil_pie @markdurbin104 @foamcow It's such a common mistake, most people don't know the difference between sex and gender.@nancetron Or is it a chestnut? https://t.co/75Mke4GVqj@nancetron What is a marrative?It is NSFW because it contains penes. I learnt a new word today BTW. http://t.co/Cp5zyQUmuoThis @SarahKSilverman advert is unfortunately definitely NSFW. I'll be watching it just as soon as I get home. http://t.co/WBRJ9hxNWz@cole_peters Haven't finished reading it yet, but it's a great and well constructed article.I published a new article on data, privacy, and user experience last night: “Privacy vs UX is a false dichotomy” http://t.co/LLLiagL1QS

@adactio And they won't necessarily know to remove the polyfill or have the confidence to do so (if it ain't broke)@adactio I would add that even in a company where you own your product, other devs will be working on the product in the future.Great article by @adactio, thinking about when not to use polyfills. http://t.co/aKGv4tFEQBI'm in sunny Brighton for my sister @lara_emerson and @beckadavid101's (non-trashy) hen weekend!

@clagnut Designing any responsive site so that the most commonly interacted elements are in that "natural" zone will be a challenge.@sarahbadr And Yosemite Safari too.
