Accessibility on Social Media; Tips for Ensuring Your Social Content is Accessible

Quick question – is your social media team taking the necessary steps to ensure your social content is accessible to all audiences, including those with sensory disabilities?

Why do computer progress bars suck as much now as they did back in the ASCII days?

"It is 2021, and progress bars' loading time estimates still suck just as much as they did back when they looked like this [referring to ASCII graphic]" YouTuber Tom Scott says. "Why can't computers just tell you how long something's going to take?" — Read the rest

Remembering TechCrunch Japan’s Hirohide Yoshida (1971-2020)

On New Year’s Eve, TechCrunch Japan’s Editor-in-Chief Hirohide Yoshida passed away at age 49. In addition to being a tremendously valuable member of our international team who helped build the site’s presence on the international stage, Hiro-san was a thoughtful, warm and kind colleague who impacted the lives of those of us who had the pleasure to work with him. I worked alongside Hiro-san at two consecutive TechCrunch Tokyo events. The size and scope of the shows were impressive testaments to t...

Can We Replace YAML With an Easier Markup Language? (slashdot)

On his personal blog, Red Hat's Chris Short (also a CNCF Cloud Native Ambassador) told his readers that "We kinda went down a rabbit hole the other day when I suggested folks check out yq. ("The aim of the project is to be the jq or sed of yaml files.") "First, there's nothing wrong with this project. I like it, I find the tool useful, and that's that. But the great debate started over our lord and savior, YAML." And then he shares what he learned from a bad experience reading the YAML spec ...

Artist creates gorgeous sketches using an analog typewriter

James Cook is reviving the arcane art of creating images with an analog typewriter, aka the original ASCII art: This is vol. 2 of the production of my typewriter art from various scenes around the Essex countryside in the summer of 2020. The three "typicitions" were drawn from observation at the historic Layer Marney Tower, Tollesbury Marina and Thaxted Parish Church. These drawings were typed on my 73" Silverreed 200 and I managed to get through a couple of ribbons on these pieces of work! ...

ASCII or HTML

Hi, I'm compiling my first ePub to submit to Kindle. I used the website, word to clean html dot com, which converted curly quotes to html. Later, in Sigil, I used the Mend & Prettify all HTML files tool, which stripped the HTML for punctuation and quotes. I was under the impression that HTML should be used for most, if not all such punctuation. And that, if it's not HTML, then such characters would be in ASCII format. I don't mean to question Sigil's methods but, will my ePub be ok to ...

Steam’s Google result reads “F☠️ck Epic Games Store”

The broken ASCII-art "FUCK EPIC GAMES STORE" wasn't placed intentionally by Steam to show up as the store's description in Google search results, but there it is, all the same. Google and its algorithmic gods picked the phrase, a comment left by a user of the site, for reasons known only to itself. [Rock Paper Shotgun]

Textmode Space Harrier

What you see before you here is frenetic, graphics-heavy 1985 arcade game Space Harrier as a textmode app. Though represented as chunky extended-ASCII characters, the underlying game is startlingly authentic, with bosses, pylons, tunnel staages and music all running at the Sega classic's freakishly fast clip. It's not a clever terminal project floating up on Hacker News: it's actually the conversion for the MZ-700, a 1982 Japanese 8-bit, apparently created by Kazuhiro Furuhata in 1988. But t...

All Hail The Mighty Octothorpe

It's the name that Bell Laboratories engineers applied to the tic-tac-toe crosshatch symbol: #The derivation and use of this humble little symbol is fascinating.

Twitch Has Become a Haven For Live Sports Piracy

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Wired: Twitch has been and remains home to illicit sports broadcasts; a late December boxing match attracted over 86,000 viewers -- some of whom spammed ASCII genitalia in chat -- and a mid-January soccer match drew over 70,000 over three livestreams. Although Twitch often stomps them out mid-match, plenty of livestreams posted by throwaway accounts with innocuous names like "Untitled" slip through the cracks and garner tens of thousands of viewers. As th...

The Analog January Challenge

One of the surprising lessons I learned working on Digital Minimalism is that when it comes to reforming your relationship with your devices, successful outcomes are less about deciding to stop harmful digital behaviors than they are about deciding to start committing to meaningful analog alternatives. If you simply resolve to quit social media, and end up sitting on your coach, bored, white knuckling the urge to check Twitter, you’re unlikely to experience lasting change. On the oth...
