What We Read – January 27, 2017

This week, we read about awesome design practices, supercomputing craziness, and Facebook algorithm updates.

Digital Product Design 2016 – InVision

 

I read this wicked sweet email from InVision that highlighted the innovative and cool things that happened in the world of design over the last year. Gradients are back. Big brands rebranded (ahem, UBER). InVision also showcased some of the great things they had done over the past year. It’s definitely the tool I consistently use for almost every digital product, and I don’t think they’re going anywhere in 2017.

China reminds Trump that supercomputing is a race

 

Here’s an article from ComputerWorld that made the /r/Futurology subreddit all sorts of upset earlier this week. For those of you who aren’t up-to-date on your latest supercomputing news, China has announced that it intends to develop a prototype of an exascale supercomputer by the end of 2017. Why should we care? For one, it’s usually the U.S. that leads this world in this area. But, more specifically, supercomputers like this are a giant leap forward in weather forecasting, nuclear weapon security, bioterrorism and disease control, and building brains. (Yep, BRAINS!) More importantly, supercomputing is a tide that lifts all boats, meaning it should theoretically make all of our layman computers faster, too. I wanted to share this because supercomputing is not something you think about every day, but it’s endlessly fascinating.

Facebook boosts longer videos in algorithm change

 

Once again, Facebook changes it upon us. The social giant shared in a blog post that the new algorithm change will favor longer videos, which will most likely make it harder for shorter videos to get some quality news feed time. Zuckerberg says not to worry and that the update shouldn’t have that dramatic of an impact. So what does this mean for marketers? Focus on the message instead of “posting for the sake of posting.”
