OK, here we go again. There have been some interesting bits on writing again today, this blog on the benefit of handwriting for taking notes over and above typing was great. I float between the two and can't seem to settle.

I had this post linked to me on implementing buttons which reminded me how much I enjoy design/UX. I had begun the Google UX course which I should pick back up and finish someday...

I've been working on some presentation materials and I needed to whiteboard something out and it reminded me how good a tool Excalidraw is. If you like the style it seems super quick to throw something simple together to illustrate a point well.

Side thoughts today are that while I've been making an effort to migrate to the federated web, largely Mastodon, I should remember to post images. I did like the format of taking a couple of shots per day on Instagram to share and it was a means for me as a latent photographer to keep sharp, keep my eyes open and take in the world around me. There are federated Instagram equivalents, however, I keep remembering the Scott Hanselman axiom "Own your words". This also applies to images. I'll think of a nice way of implementing an image gallery component to this site. There may not be such a thing in Vitepress as yet, but I can easily do something on a subdomain.
