    I suspect there are a lot of clojure fans here — wanted to see if there are any books/guides that you could point me towards to get started with it. (Background mainly python and JS, not a lot of FP experience)

    Does any of you knows of a more comprehensive book list from Alan Kay? There is this one: http://www.squeakland.org/resources/books/readingList.jsp but I was wondering if there is another one with more books in it.

    Part of the founding legend of Dropbox is that Drew Houston told people what he wanted to do, and everyone said 'there are hundreds of these already' and he replied 'yes, but which one do you use?' That's what Zoom did - video calls are nothing new, but Zoom solved a lot of the small pieces of friction that made it fiddly to get into a call.

    I wonder what people of think of this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/move38/blinks-game-system-20-new-smart-tabletop-games I ordered a set from their first kickstarter about a year ago. The product intrigued me because it was developed by an MIT media lab alumnus, and the "physical computing" aspects of the project felt very reminiscent of Bret Victor's Dynamic Land.

    I thought this might be of interest to this audience: "In this sense, user interfaces are cultural artefacts. Furthermore, we believe that when you’re learning how to design an interface, you should study not only the most recent human interface guidelines but also the history and the highlights of user interface design." https://medium.com/@borism/menus-metaphors-and-materials-milestones-of-user-interface-design-f3f75481c46c
