Koko

Koko is a social network for your mind. A snippet from the website below about the app:

Based on research from the MIT Media Lab, Koko uses an innovative form of crowdsourced cognitive therapy.

Wired did a great write up about it.

I have been beta-testing this app since someone kindly pinged me on Twitter. It is quite unique and address mental health issues like stress, depression, anxiety, or whatever is the case. Something that clearly fits for us people who are working towards a better mental health.

I have to say it is wonderful helping strangers because the idea of helping some random person on this world helps them and it helps you to mentally shape things for the better. Don't worry, it is all completely anonymous.

Grab it for free via App Store. An Android version is in the works, sign up to their mailing list.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer (Official)

The trailer looks epic and yet someone at Disney has completely forgotten to put closed captions* in too.

Accessibility on the web is still far behind when it comes to trailers and I fear for the film launch date where CC/subtitles will be shown at a later date.

Disney, are you listening?

* Also another thing, auto captions should be banned at Google. Funny as it may seem yet it is a living joke for deaf/hard of hearing people.

BBC News and Flash

I think it's time for the BBC to relook at flash usage and replace the technology within this year or so.

I mean look at this (screen grab from work's PC where flash is exclusively turned off(!))

flash no?

It has already been done for smartphones/tablets. So why not desktops?

Signing in 3D Language

"Sign language is a 3-D language," Malzkuhn says. "We use the space in front of us, the space around us."

I do love that explanation. One of the best explanation I have heard about Sign Language in years.

Doomnet!

Did I really created this pile of shit information homepage errr.. page back in the late 90s?

I was innocent okay? I had zero designing experience, discovered that html has to be in CAPS and I had giggles of fits ... look whatever okay?!

Christ, that IE button was the shit in them days.

I WAS 18! LOOK! APARTMENT ON THE NET. That was Angel Fire... or was it Geocities? We didn't have PHP to play around with and every goddamn HTML page were edited.

Seriously. I was innocent.
