Tuesday TEA Time
Yo,
I hope you have had a good start to your week. Mine has been busy, but in a good way. I haven’t gotten any new sneakers since my last newsletter, so no updates there 🤣
Tech
How Dark Patterns Trick You Online - YouTube
The above video by Nerdwriter is a great introduction to some of the shady things we do online to ourselves. We love tricking ourselves into things instead of trying to earn the attention or revenue we get. “Everyone does it,” but that’s just no excuse. I strive to make sure the things I make are honest and I hope I succeed more than I fail.

Also, Kottke wrote about the City DNA project and it’s fantastic.
After Piet Mondrian moved to New York in 1940, his work became influenced by Manhattan’s grid system, particularly expressed in Broadway Boogie Woogie. Similarly, for his City DNA project, Xinjian Lu studied satellite maps of cities… 
Entertainment
Lauryn Hill: 20 Years Of Relevance - YouTube
Another Nerdwriter video (and probably the best one he’s ever made) is this exploration of Lauryn Hill’s influence and influences. There is no voice over, the story is told through visual media and it’s incredibly good. This is definitely worth a watch even if just to hear some great music.
Art
I fell into love with these illustrations by Sofia Bonati the second I saw them! The people’s hair, clothes, or minds are labyrinths and I love it. You can checkout her Behance page to see more of her great work.

That’s it for this week. I hope you found something interesting and I hope you have a good rest of your week.
