Tokyo shadows and a pandemic portrait of a portrait

Facebook’s Clubhouse rival looks a lot like Clubhouse right now

Facebook is building a Clubhouse rival, The New York Times reported in February. But what that product will look like or how it will work have been questions that have remained unanswered.

Around the Louvre

Seen on another sunny Sunday around the Louvre. There’s the Louvre. The pyramid always looks lovely. There were couples dancing in front of the Palais Royals-the tango I think. The Palais Royal was closed for some reason. Yesterday all parks, gardens and cemeteries were closed due to a forecasted high wind but it never amounted to much. I love the architecture and columns here. I’ve started on a program called Tandem where a French person exchanges conversat...

Clubhouse UX teardown: A closer look at homepage curation, follow hooks and other features

Clubhouse, the social audio app that first took Silicon Valley by storm and is now gaining much wider appeal, is an interesting user experience case study. Hockey-stick growth — 8 million global downloads as of last month, despite still being in a prelaunch, invite-only mode, — is something most startups would kill for. However, it also means that UX problems can only be addressed while in “full flight” — and that changes to the user experience will be felt at scale rather under the cover of a...

The next era of moderation will be verified

Rick Song Contributor Share on Twitter Rick Song is co-founder and CEO of Persona. Since the dawn of the internet, knowing (or, perhaps more accurately, not knowing) who is on the other side of the screen has been one of the biggest mysteries and thrills.

The fox reappears...

 Next time... I plan to get a better picture. I've got to reach for my old time-y camera. I'm keeping it right here on my desk. It's a mistake to grab the iPhone. What a fumbling idiot I become when suddenly excited by a chance to photograph the fox! I got that one picture and then — even though the beastie paused to take a shit — I could not get a second shot. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

How El Monte and the San Gabriel Valley inspire writer Carribean Fragoza’s writing

As a journalist, Carribean Fragoza has focused her keen sense of observation on stories about subjects ranging from gentrification in Boyle Heights to fitness classes in El Monte. “I’m always amazed by the wildness of the world, the actual, factual world,” she says. “The world is full of real stories that are amazing all by themselves.

Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership

LEADERSHIP is a mindset—a way of approaching life. It is about how you behave and what you do. It can be taught and then tested and refined in practice. We all have a responsibility to lead in the context we are in. James Kouzes and Barry Posner emphasize this point in Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership. The book is about what “individuals do to effect change and improvement.” Most leaders do not have titles. And this book is written for them – those people who can and should lead “witho...
