Weeklies are my notes of things not big enough for a blog post but worthy of being mentioned and linked to. Find all of my Weeklies at /weeklies.

  • how many Super Mario games are there NOW?

    Another wonderful video in jan Misali’s great “how many Super Mario games there are?” video essay series. He analyses what makes a game part of the Super Mario mainline game series from various perspectives, backed up by surveys he’s been running.

  • No Wrong Doors.

    No Wrong Doors policy refers to a practice where person in need of help finds the needed help even if they arrive at the wrong door. Instead of telling them “Wrong place, go there”, you walk them there and help them find assistance with the right people.

  • Instead of "auth", we should say "permissions" and "login"

    Auth can refer to two different concepts: authorization and authentication. Nicole recommends using “permissions” and “login” as more descriptive alternatives.
