Topics

Does webspeed matter for personal websites

See: https://indieweb.org/performance

Multiple fonts? They load very slowly.

Bootstrap was 50x the size of the HTML he was trying to communicate

  • Reasons why to have better speed
    • Readers with poor bandwidth
    • Saving website/server resources

Scots Wikipedia fiasco

Scottish language version was written in "poor" grammar by one user over seven years https://www.reddit.com/r/Scotland/comments/ig9jia/ive_discovered_that_almost_every_single_article/


Archive

To ascend or to descend, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind...

  • archive page design
  • chronological or reverse-chronological?
  • see chat for more discussion early that day

Eric Meyer has an article referenced from Kartik Prabhu's article find them here: https://kartikprabhu.com/articles/webs-arrow-time#notes

Eric Meyer has written about this before in Weblog Weirdness and First-Order Solutions. Notice that those pages have posts in a proper chronological order though his homepage is in reverse-chronological order. He also uses the “older to left” pattern on his archive pages.

Accessiblity and language/cultural preferences

From a UI perspective, language may affect how people perceive and think about time in various settings:

  • Lancaster University. "Language shapes how the brain perceives time." ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 2 May 2017. www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170502112607.htm
    • Recap of journal article: Emanuel Bylund and Panos Athanasopoulos. The Whorfian Time Warp: Representing Duration Through the Language Hourglass. Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 2017 DOI: 10.1037/xge0000314.supp
