The UX of LEGO Interface Panels – George Cave

quote [ In 2015, Ford recalled 13,500 Lincoln SUVs because drivers speeding down the motorway were mistakenly shutting off the engine when they tried to activate sport mode. See if you can spot why ]

Oh, this tackles all sorts of interface anecdotes while throwing a lot of nicely photographed Lego bricks at you. Been trending hard.

Puzzle Museum

quote [ last update 2018-11-10 3210 ]

Quite some resourceful link collection along with years of monthly antique puzzles. Somehow frozen in time since november 2018.

It is (was?) ran by James Dalgety, curating, amongst others, the puzzles of Edward Hordern.
