#39 — What you truly want to do in your life?

10 things worth sharing each week.

Hi there,

Some day this week, I had a discussion with family on topic of life. Then I came up the question: What I truly want to do in my life?

I want to leave some assets to the world after I die. That’s my purpose of life. And this newsletter is one part of that. I review my week in my newsletter and captured a weekly reads and quote. That’s also why I wrote books and teach classes. Books and knowledge is something exists even the creaters died.

Anyway, here are the 10 things worth reading this week.

  1. A Japan Manifesto: Why Am I In Tokyo?

  2. WCAG 2.0 AA Is the New Accessibility Standard for Federal Agency Websites

  3. Presentation Attributes vs Inline Styles.

  4. SVG Style Inheritance and the ‘Flash Of Unstyled SVG’.

  5. An overview of client-side storage.

  6. Useless UI — “Often the user interface is using the wrong controls and wrong patterns.”

  7. A story of a designer conquering mathematics. Intersting reading from a perspective of programmer.

  8. Sushi on the touch bar. Have some fun with your touch bar. I feel hungry when using this app.

  9. We preceive different font sizes when reading in different distance. Size Calculator shows the interactive part. iA shows the theory part of responsive typography.

  10. The French tech visa is available soon.

And the quote of the week.

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” — Steve Jobs

What you truly want to do in your life?

p.s. This letter was usually delivered on Monday. But I got sick and took rest for days. (I found that once I finished all my classes, I got sick. I just finisehd 2 mobile web design and development classes last week)

p.p.s. I’m preparing an “One minute a week, learn web design a bit.” video serious. I’ll append it to this newsletter when they are ready.

Until next week,
Thomas Mak
