Links, ideas, news roundup #4

More interesting links have piled up in my bookmarks bar and decided to share them. So, cool stuff I've recently found around the web:

  • ever wondered why the links are colored, by default, blue? Well, this Why are hyperlinks blue article on the Mozilla blog has the answer. Quite some cool bits of UI history in it.
  • and speaking about UI a few days ago I've stumbled upon this Gridless Design idea. Still amazed about how much math has to do with a good design and good proportions.
  • I find myself spending hours looking at other people’s setups and desks. So, therefore, finding Maker Stations was like finding a small treasure chest. It is a collection of desks and home workstations to use as inspiration. Btw, posted in the newsletter a picture of my new home office 🙂 .
  • and if you want to take your home office to the next level of ergonomy the blog of Michael Sloan is a good place to place to visit and learn. He was some great workspace experiments posted. Looking forward to an outdoor workstation.
  • to conclude on a more technical note I've learned from Stefan Judis that the input elements hold references to their labels. So, we can write something like this in pure Javascript.
    <label for="foo">Some input</label> 
    <input type="text" id="foo"> 
    <script>
    console.log(document.getElementById('foo').labels); 
    // NodeList (1) [label] 
    </script>
