True facts about the cuttlefish

Happy Cephalopod Saturday! Today, let us celebrate the cuttlefish, which is one of my favorite cephalopods. This amazing creature has a stunningly complex eye, unworldly camouflage abilities, and is pretty damn cute.

Brilliant (and NSFW!!) discussion of how game education built into the very design of the game is far more satisfying than a bunch of modal popups. So very relevant to today's UI design. Remember, prefer gentle nudges (like actionable empty states and sample content) in favor of speedbump tutorials and modal overlays.

Oh and, yeah Mega Man X is in my top 5 games of all time. OF ALL TIME!

Also relevant: Android Design in Action: Onboarding Experience

Seattle police told the media that they had disciplined a cop with a one-day suspension for threatening journalist Dominic Holden who photographing the officer on the street. 

But the a one-day suspension was later rescinded in the hopes that nobody would notice.

Clearly, they underestimated Holden

What the officer did was wrong and the day off was a reasonable punishment, but I disagree with using the word "threatened" to describe the misconduct. The officer saying he was going to come harass Mr. Holden at work was sarcasm. But saying an officer was rude to a photographer is not as sexy a headline.

Surprised this wasn't bigger news today...
 
Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.

I figured I'd see more shares and mentions else where.  I'm happy to see it as well, just shocked it was several hours after the original post that I saw something (albeit I wasn't actively checking G+ today).

I started going to Tim's when I moved into the area last year. The quality of seafood he gets in is just amazing and it's always a delight to eat. If you're in to poke, stop by Tim's and get some! It's fantastic. Much higher quality than some of the other bigger fish markets on the Eastside..
