Dear English native speakers. Did I *watch* a show by Soul Glo yesterday? Of did I *see* a show by Soul Glo yesterday?

Today Manuel Matuzović and Eric Groot Kormelink talked to my students about design and accessibility. Manuel talked about the (hidden) UX of HTML, and Eric talked about the incredible projects he has done with our students over the years. Such an inspiring event. Lucky, lucky students!

Today I dug up this alphabet sculpture I made in the 90s. Going to give it a place in my new workshop.
