Hi, I'm Dominik Schwind, friend of the internet. Here is /now.

A couple of ways you can follow me around on the internet.

The prefered way would probably be with a feed reader - here is my RSS feed.

If you need more direct access, you can follow me here with Mastodon or similar sites: @dominik@nona.social. You can also follow this blog via @dominik@lostfocus.de.

Absolut lesenswert: design engaged the second – Russell Davies über interaktive, die Realität ein-/übernehmende Medien und den auf jeden Fall folgenwerdenden visuellen Spam, der jetzt schon seine ersten, üblen Vorzeichen zeigt.

The only problem is: the same mess of corporate non-talking we saw before is quickly going to port itself onto the spime’s slender infospace – as soon as the marketing folks find out what the heck a spime is. And this will result in a crappy mess of promotions, cashbacks, trailers, warranty information, EULAs, starbursts and limited time offers crowding out the subtle bits of information design all the design students are dreaming of right now.

In diesem Kontext habe ich nun das schöne Wort Spime gelernt, was wohl trotz der Wortähnlichkeit ursprünglich nichts mit Spam zu tun haben sollte. [via]
