A remote conference on design and exclusion, today, April 21st, at 16.00 UTC
Exclusion can be driven by conscious hatred. But we sometimes also fuel it with our own ignorance. Designers may not be able to address the former, but the latter opens up multiple directions for change.
To explore these opportunities, we’re gathering design and technology leaders whose expertise spans industry, startups, nonprofits, and research labs. We’ll convene here online on April 21 to discuss how the design of technology platforms excludes people. By focusing on exclusion, we want to push ourselves to think differently — and together — about building more welcoming and inclusive products.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve open-sourced two projects last week: Delphin and its sibling, Delphin Bootstrap. Delphin powers get.blog, a site we built for a smooth registration of .blog domains. Delphin Bootstrap is a portable development environment for Delphin — it makes getting Delphin up and running easy on any operating system.
One of Delphin’s main goals was to simplify the process of registering and managing a domain. We’ve focused on the user experience, trying to avoid as much industry jargon as possible, while keeping in mind that purchasing a domain is just the first step in the journey toward a larger goal, like telling a story or selling products.

I couldn’t come to Vegas and not try Burgr by Gordon Ramsay.
Overall, I’m happy we went, the burgers are delicious and the prices reasonable.
It doesn’t beat the best, but easily lands in my top five of all times. The main downside is that a great burger has to pack all his qualities into a format small enough to wrap, take away, and eat with one hand.
Being served on a plate is a red flag in my book. Special mention to the bun though, really good.
