Issue 17: Obsidian Workflow, Copilot, a11y, this and that

CODE: Github introduced Copilot1, an AI project which is more than just auto-complete / Grammarly for coders. It has been released as a VSCode extension and not locked inside Github Atom2.

NOTE TAKING: A brief chat with Binny VA3, ended up outlining my Obsidian workflow,4 which I published as an essay. Do read, and let me know what you think!

STRATEGY: Here is a quick note on what a UX Strategist Does5. This post has helped many understand the role, set the right expectations, and build a proper job description. (And if you are a senior, read this6!)

TV: Completed watching Mare of Easttown7. The drama is stunning8, so is Kate! It’s a must-watch for anyone who loves drama and investigation. (Do let me know if there is any series similar to this. This is my genre!)

MOVIE: Saw Aanum Pennum9 (Amazon Prime), a Malayalam anthology. While I loved the third segment - Aashiq Abu’s Rani with Darshana, Roshan Mathew, the other two pieces gave a half-cooked / plastic impression. Raachiamma made me revisit Dooradarshan’s version10 (Dir. Harikumar, with Sona Nair & Madhupal on lead roles,) and ended up knowing that few old telefilms11 are available on Youtube! 💙

Also, Bhavana Studios released deleted scenes12 from Thondimuthalum Drisakshiyum13, one of the finest movies in recent times, triggering a rewatch14! (Hotstar)

ACCESSIBILITY: Here is a list of few tools that will help you find accessible colors - Contrast Finder15, Colorable16, Accessible Color Matrix17. Also, watch this video18 to understand the logic.

READ: Accidently stumbled upon European Union’s ‘Right to Disconnect.’ It’s must-read literature for everyone (especially managers) working in the modern tech working environments.
