A reminder that reducing your tailpipe CO2 emissions to zero doesn't always reduce overall CO2 emissions. One really needs to know how your electricity is produced.
Powering an electric car may be just be an electrical socket away but electricity as fuel may actually be more laden with green house gases than filling up the tank at a gas station. It depends on how that electricity is made and in some provinces research shows electricity is dirtier than oil.

Goodbye completely "flat" and invisible buttons.
To hear Google's designers explain it, material design is more than a redesign. It's an effort to establish best practices for the fledgling field of interactive design as a whole.

Yeah, card stock as the basis for a design language. Neat to have a z-axis and natural transitions, vs skeumorphic or flat approaches of the past.

It will be interesting to set how long it takes until it starts feeling tired and the next thing comes along.

Human perception mixed with social media 
Not since Monica Lewinsky was a White House intern has one blue dress been the source of so much consternation. (And yes, it’s blue.) The fact that a single image could polarize the entire Internet into two aggressive camps is, let’s face it, just another Thursday. But for the past half-day, people across social media…

Because the insights that analytics are churning out these days are the biggest drivers of new business models, closer ties with customers, and more production collaboration with partners, customers and employees.  But as more data…
