Web Animation Weekly

Sorry for the late edition! I was so honored to have been invited to Munich to keynote at JS Kongress. You can already watch my talk, The Browser Is Not a Document Reader! It's about how three things introduced in Internet Explorer 4—the DOM API, data-binding, and asynchronous JavaScript—have shaped how we build the web today, two decades later.

I was amazed in researching this how much the technologies we build today really do escalate and impact what the next generation of designers and developers build. Worth thinking about!

Every gaming event site should interactivity and play! Meet & Build, by Reed and Quai10, uses background scroll animations and click-and-drag interactivity— so go bounce some spheres around!

[News] [Diversity and Inclusion] In more disappointing news, Pixar’s John Lasseter seems to be what we women like to call “handsy” with his coworkers, even having a grope-deflecting “move” named after him. Truly disappointed in the man who gave us classic quotes like my favorite: “The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.”

Tangentially related, Rashida Jones of Parks and Recreation fame bailed on writing Toy Story 4 for tangentially related reasons: "(It is) a culture where women and people of color do not have an equal creative voice, as is demonstrated by their director demographics: out of the 20 films in the company’s history, only one was co-directed by a woman and only one was directed by a person of color." (This explains why most Pixar movies are about dudes having midlife crises!) 

Sometimes I wonder: do homogenous work groups breed unprofessional behavior, or does unprofessional behavior lead to a homogenous workforce? Probably both.

[Inspiration] Digging this animated music video that plays with switching between negative colors spaces.
