My friend Ciro Esposito [*] has shared, over one of his social media channels, this pool by CoverJunkie celebrating the best magazine cover of the ’10s.
The selection of “my bests” was not easy, and I loved some provocative covers … mainly from Spain, I had to notice. What’s yours?
Ciro runs a great newsletter about graphics, typography and design … it’s in italian, but suggested links and articles comes from all over the world, so why not subscribe it? It’s called Dispenser.Design …
“The other day, I came across a website I’d written over two decades ago. I double-clicked the file, and it opened and ran perfectly.
Then I tried to run a website I’d written 18 months ago and found I couldn’t run it without firing up a web server, and when I ran NPM install, one or two of those 65,000 files had issues that meant node failed to install them and the website didn’t run. When I did get it working, it needed a database. And then it relied on some third-party APIs and there was an issue with CORS because I hadn’t whitelisted localhost.
My website made of files carried on, chugging along. This isn’t me saying that things were better in the old days. I’m just saying that years ago websites were made of files; now they are made of dependencies.”Simon Pitt
This is a great quote from the Everything is Amazing, But Nothing is Ours post by Alex Danco on the evolution of technologies around the file/services paradigms. Give it a read, and if you’re a developer please do think more ‘in the long term’, for you and for me (as a client).
