Decades later, the Rebellion's fearless leader is still our most iconic female hero.

She's the perfect role model / hero, although the slave girl outfit was a bit of a low point 

The rest of Star Wars was very male centric at that time. Hopefully they'll redress that a little with the upcoming new trilogy

This is a clever exploration of using proportional scroll fades to indicate scroll progress in addition to the traditional use of scroll fades to indicate additional content vs termination.

If the DPI on screens gets high enough, we won't need to scroll anymore. We'll just need screen magnifiers ;-)

Today at #bwdesign2015, +Matias Duarte and +Joshua Topolsky sat down for another fireside chat, discussing everything from the future of design to consistent design across devices to “why wearables."

Check out this related, short interview clip from today (goo.gl/BQEx4j) and the recording from the last fireside chat at #FORMSF14 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wipr1KRt_g

I also have a quick question about the UI of the +YouTube​ app

The "share" icon on the Android app seems to be nonstandard (looking like a horizontally mirrored content-reply icon) but the share button on iOS is the three point Material social-share icon.

Do you know why these icons were chosen? I would have thought that the three point social-share button would have been more appropriate for Android, and the iOS share button for iOS

Just a typical day at Google... Making doodles. Looking at spaceships. Feeding dinosaurs. Decorating tasty Android treats!

April 2015 Material Design Spec Update

Here on the #materialdesign team at Google, we’re always listening to community feedback and looking for ways to broaden and expand the specification to better fit the needs of designers everywhere. Today we’re publishing an update to google.com/design/spec that draws on extensive conversations we’ve had with designers and developers over the past few months. The update includes 7 new sections, as well as refinements to content in existing sections.

Some highlights:

Data tables: guidance on presenting data sets, particularly in desktop products
Units and measurements: a description of the different units used in material design, including guidance on using density-independent pixels (DPs)
App structure: suggestions for top-level navigation in your app
Component sticker sheet for After Effects to help streamline your motion design workflow
Floating action buttons now have their own section, with added guidance on behavior and transitions
• Updated guidance on Typography, Cards, Dialogs, Tabs and Scrolling.

For all the gory details, check out the What’s New section in the spec: goo.gl/3aB3xM

@MatiasDuarte+MatiasDuarte kind of out of the blue - where can i find examples of the cute cartoon people in the onboarding screens for stock android apps circa 4.4.4? (especially hangouts). if i remember right, some were on cityscape backdrops. haven't been able to find screencaps of these anywhere

All the LOLs.
The author recalls actual words uttered to her by sexist male colleagues in the tech sector.

As a women i wouldnt really raise and eyebrow if i was asked  these questions i would just smile but I would just secretly think that you are a dick. There are a alot women who smile get on with there work but secretly think that some of their Male co workers are just dicks. And i say some because i have had the pleasure of working with real great male collegues and some really bad female ones. I personally dont want to work in a office where every guy is on tender hooks before he says anything and i hope that people have their own personal filter and they know when something is off.

Congrats team!
 
Big thanks to Art Director's Club for awarding #materialdesign  a Gold Cube for branding. The campaign, which launched last year at I/O, included a printed kit, created in collaboration with Manual design; an animated sizzle reel (http://goo.gl/1xNpOh) produced in collaboration with Mixtape Club, and the fully responsive Material Design Guidelines site (http://goo.gl/TCZgoq), developed in collaboration with HUGE. We are deeply honored for the recognition.

It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.

MLK, 1968.  Not today, 1968.

If anybody wants to deny what they know MLK would think about how to respond to these situations, you obviously did not understand the man. However, this would have done Malcom X very proud. I'm not defending the indecency of police and others who mistreat the minority populous, however i will not sit here and try to put words in a dead man's mouth. A man who was pretty clear in his actions as a living man, how he thought people of color should act in the face of adversity. Protest is fine, but violence isn't solving anything, just leaving gutted buildings and creating more work for civilized humans to clean up. Many of the protesters spent their day cleaning up the mess, they are the followers of MLK's dream, they won't sit around and take mistreatment, but it won't come at the cost of the community they live in, and it won't come at the cost of their reputation as humans simply wanting to be treated with equality and not acting like savages to get their point across.

Ah, counterintuitive results... this is why we science!
You make think it's obvious that when quotas are used, weaker candidates are selected. Several recent studies show that exactly the opposite is true!

I keep seeing us in the geek community throwing around comments about how, "Oh, well I use 23 petabytes of data each month because I use my $30 unlimited T-mobile plan to host a bittorrent server and use VoIP." OK, I get that is not uncommon in our world, but maybe you aren't the target audience for Fi then? A smartphone plan for $20 to $50 a month for light data users that have access to WiFi? That didn't really exist in the US wireless market before. It is progress.

I've been about this for such a long time - couldn't wait until it was finally ready!
 
Got your hands full? You no longer need them to check your news and notifications. Instead you can just flick your wrist to scroll through the stream. #AndroidWear

I have a big Google idea. Please create a more sophisticated voice calculator. Whether it be on a phone or watch (more ideal), it needs to be something that competes with scientific calculators.

I want to be able to say "what is 10 divided by 2?" then say "OK Google take that answer and make it X. Now tell me what is Tan X degrees?"  In the meantime, Google is populating a sheet (taking notes) with the all of the equations I asked along with the answers (in mathematical format). It then saves this sheet  to Google drive where I can further edit it or even better use it in a template to convert the equations into to shapes / graphs / patterns / programming code/ compare it to other equations on the web / g+. Thank you

Kiril shows off three different approaches, that are nonetheless all completely Material.
 
While Material lays out the ground rules / guidelines / suggestions on layering and overall structure of the "chrome" around your content, there's ample space to explore and shape your own take on the same problem space.

In this short GIF you can see the current approaches from three different apps - Mizuu, Philm and Play Store. From the status bar to the toolbar to the hero image to the main content of the page - follow the layering, the parallax, the cross-fades, the translucency and the rest of what happens during the scrolling.

This is not a sit down place it's just a counter, but its some of the best fried oysters around. Order them and eat them quick while they're still sizzling! Fries and shrimp are also yummy but I just go for two plates of the oysters just for me!
