Week Note Forty Two - Very late edition
We had a fun and interesting weekend involving the family. It had emotionally and physically drained us and it is only today (Wednesday) that we are regaining sense of normality(!) that I could write something.
After months of planning to learn new skills due to work being flat out busy, Figma was on the radar to learn and it is a really incredibly useful app to learn to design website and functionality can be built as reusable components, et al, also how to be dealing with templates from UX / Designers when building pages with collaborating tools.
Book of Doom!
I have enjoyed reading reading Broadband - The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet by Claire L. Evans and have been exploring the web from the 90s via Internet Archives. The next book currently being read is Masters of Doom about how Two Johns (Romero and Carmack) created the famous Commander Keen, Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake. Insanely fun to read and crazy antics happened throughout their lives like breaking keyboards, chairs, monitors.. it is a wild book.
2021 is nearly over with two months to go. I wonder if I ever have a brain left at this point!
