The tides are turning slowly but surely. Two movies with big stars (Bradley Cooper / Jennifer Lawrence and Julianne Moore / Jon Cusack) are available for rent at the same time they're playing on the big screens. We are living in the future.

Those 2 movies where released in Europe (well most of it) a few month before the US and they did not do very well ... Maybe that's the reason they are available in digital, studio's have nothing to loose here.

And then I was strongarmed into helping this guy to install the latest system update on his ZenFone because apparently ASUS can't be bothered to do proper OTAs like the rest of the ecosystem, and after about hour and a half of poking at installing random .img files on his device it finally booted, and I was all like...

Asus USED to be really good. Now they pretty much shovelware everything and do next to nothing to support it. They used to have great support, good community interaction, and prompt updates to all their hardware. Now they have crap for QA, poor device design, and little-to-no continued support.

I used to be such a fan of them, but am dismayed at how far they have fallen.

Here is a blog post on this exact subject by the owner of current computer game Kicsktarter Underworld Ascendant - http://www.underworldascendant.com/the-game/dev-updates.php

Disclaimer: I have backed this project as I played each and every of their games as Looking Glass and loved them all and I've seen that few, if any, of "properly" published games have had the same quality and originality after Looking Glass went in.

On the crazy world of JavaScript frameworks
Most programming languages support a small number of popular, stable application frameworks. Objective-C and Swift apps use Apple's excellent Cocoa framework. Ruby apps more often than not use Rails. Java has a handful of established web app frameworks, and they come and go relatively slowly.

The benefits of small components which you can build larger components from is a big reason I think react is taking off.

So what is meta-design? In a traditional design practice, the designer works directly on a design product. Be it a logo, website, or a set of posters, the designer is the instrument to produce the final artifact. A meta-designer works to distill this instrumentation into a design system, often written in software, that can create the final artifact. Instead of drawing it manually, she is programming the system to draw it. These systems can then be used within different contexts to generate a range of design products without much effort.

Sounds great in theory and I certainly don't want to shoot it down just because that would make my job obsolete. However, I'm looking at the steady increase in the complexity of the systems we're building - from frameworks / platforms all the way down / up to apps - and I don't see an easy path forward to making things more effortless. But then again, if it were easy, it wouldn't be that interesting.
The rise of the meta-designer, and the use of algorithmic design systems.

(Warning: I've only read the blurb).
+Kirill Grouchnikov​: isn't this article kind of like saying "Do all your logos in SVG and you'll never have to deal with PNGs again!"?
