Every hashtag on every post on every platform should ALWAYS be camel case. I made this to illustrate how screenreaders read hashtags depending on whether they are lowercase or camel case.
It’s a small thing that all of us can do to build a more inclusive, accessible internet for all. Please take the time to use camel case.
If any friends who have read “Inclusive Design Communities” that are willing to leave ratings on GoodReads or StoryGraph, here are the links. I could use your help in getting this book to more aspiring and current designers. Devs, PMs, and tech managers, too.
If you want to use a friend-finder tool that works well, but also care about great vibes, take a look at:

This has been said before by many people but Twitter isn’t worth your time any more. People don’t SEE what you’re saying there, even if they actually follow you. The service is in big, BIG trouble.
Also, thx for following @Iconfactory here, we appreciate all of you 💕🖖

Hey fedipals! I'm looking to fill a senior-web-developer-shaped hole in someone's awesome workplace. Pass it on.
Turns out that Adobe is collecting all of its customers' pictures into a machine learning training set.
This is opt-out, not opt-in so if you use Lightroom, for example, it defaults to adding all of your photos to the set.
If these are unpublished pictures, work-in-progress, etc. they'll still be analysed as soon as they're synced.
I've been using Lightroom to sync photos from my Windows desktop to my iPad. Now I need to reconsider that.
