BlackFemaleCoders: Interested in an open source development side hustle where you get paid without even having to leave your house?
So I received a message today from a contact over at the Wikimedia Foundation asking me to help spread the word about some really cool opportunities for women developers looking to get some hands-on open source development experience (and make some money at the same time!). She mentions the Outreach Program for Women
Most iconic icons make no sense anymore.
What happens when all the things we based our icons on don’t exist anymore? Do they just become, ahem, iconic glyphs whose origins are shrouded in mystery?
Interesting that these aren’t already usability issues. Most people haven’t seen a floppy disk in decades, but still know it’s image means “Save.” Being a ubiquitous icon helps.

Last Friday this was the plan my CEO laid down for the team regarding the project we’ve been working on the past couple of months. Despite being months into the project, this is the first plan we’ve had…I’ve never heard a more backwards plan in my life.
This plan goes against everything that my design classes at college have taught me. It frustrates me so much when we iterate in the building phase…and we’ve been doing that for months. Thinking back to my projects at school, we spent 70-80% of the time designing the project and the rest implementing it—and we built some pretty amazing stuff. It doesn’t take that much time to build when you have a plan. I wish my CEO understood that.
Now I’m stuck in a dilemma because I feel frustrated and boxed in at my job. I don’t think I can take much more of this….
