    A fabulous @industryconf again. So pleased there’s going to be another one next year :)

      Hearing about cognitive biases at #industryconf and thinking about @lmjabreu, @Jo_annaP and @brainclubbtn :)

        @uliwitness *a* UI toolkit is a CSS framework that provides a visual framework, much like a kind of theme.
        laurakalbag
          @cn I'm not so comfortable with the backend side of things, so I collaborate with people who are :)
          laurakalbag
            @cn but I'm not sure that they solve the problem. They're just decoration that give the illusion of a usable (well-designed) page
            laurakalbag
              And I’m generally a die-hard CSS framework hater. Ooh it’s nice when you feel your opinions becoming more nuanced #greyareas #industryconf
              laurakalbag
                But @csswizardry is making a really interesting distinction between UI toolkits and CSS frameworks that I’d never considered #industryconf
                laurakalbag
                  The whole idea of UI toolkits make me shudder. Design isn’t drop-in (decoration might be…) #wtframework #industryconf

                    Hoorah for @industryconf and fruit in the break. I have so far avoided the pic’n’mix and, for me, that’s a huge achievement.

                      On my way to @industryconf. Newcastle has brought the sunny weather (usually it likes to rain on me.)

                        Grandma’s curry for dinner. Winning!
                        laurakalbag
                          @cn it is! It was a completely unintentional example!

                            The Noun Project has made me sad. Not allowed to view it on a small screen (why not just show the big version?!) http://t.co/MyDCfa62au

                              East Coast train to Newcastle. I booked a table seat, but because I’m in the aisle, my end of the table is about 6″ too short to be useful!

                                Interview featuring Stubby, my wonky Yucca plant. Oh yeah, and @aral talking about indie tech… ;) http://t.co/41ZqgXfFSK

                                  The Dpuble is of course The Double. @Jo_annaP is my witness that my cracked screen makes Dpuble and Double look the same. It’s not just wine
                                  laurakalbag
                                    The Dpuble. Absolutely incredible. Not sure if it was a film or a dream, it’s so dream-like.

                                      I’m looking forward to a little trip to Newcastle this week. @industryconf and family for the second year running, a habit in the making.
