May 1st: Weekly Design Links

“If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” ― George Orwell, 1984

There’s something about repetition that breeds comfort. It’s familiar, without being being obtrusive. This will be the eighteenth weekly design links post of the year. I’ve lost track of the totals now and I don’t have the energy to check. I’m tired and once again I have to remind myself that I have to start these earlier, to stop waiting until the night before to assemble the pieces into something. Maybe it’s a procedural adjustment, a refinement or more efficiency. It probably just comes down to discipline… so it goes.
