Hey guys ! I’m wondering what attracts people to Chiang Mai?
I already visited the city with my parents and parents friends but I didn’t see why every digital nomads are heading there 🙂
hidden for non-membersin #australia8h
Hi friends, can anyone recommend a cafe in Sydney (I’m in Kings Cross but can travel a bit) for working? I’ve been googling/yelping; coworking spaces seem like a no-go since they are all closed on the weekend or pretty early in the evening
hidden for non-membersin #vietnam8h
There’s a lot of varieties of banh mi though?
hidden for non-membersin #_gear8h
Cybertruck is SpaceX ready.. just drive into launch facility and wake up on Mars, in your Cybertruck
hidden for non-membersin #___general7h
I got so much love to give though! 😅 Okay, thanks for letting me know ypnpogbvgv
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
qszsyliuu I think part of it is that it’s the cheapest nicest place in the world.. the local food is great plus there’s a variety of world class restaurants, there’s nature and lots of places to see that aren’t tourist spots, loads of coworking spots and cafes, .. but it’s also just boring enough to be a good spot to settle down and focus on work.. plus month to month rentals are super common here, can show up at many places and rent a room for a month
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
I agree places surrounding Chiang Mai are awesome. I think the surrouding natures is better than the city itself. Or at least, because I was with my parents but if you know interesting people, I guess it’s a totally different story
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
It’s tailor made for digital nomads.. also internet is good
hidden for non-membersin #australia7h
Black Sugar Coffee Company on George St

ahah I guess I gotta give it a shot again
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
Bangkok is much much better for world class food
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
I think if you’re there with your parents vs being alone your experience might be different
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
Alone you’d probably rent a motorbike and enjoy driving around too etc
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
As a tourist Chiang Mai isn’t that interesting, it’s just very liveable
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
Yeah it’s very liveable mainly
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
For sightseeing and stuff there’s lots of transport required, interesting stuff is all far
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
On the flip side, what repelled you from it?
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
It’s weird to explain. I felt a bit a lack of authenticity in the downtime (except outside, which was absolutely awesome). I didn’t like the food much, I prefered Bangkok (unbeatable). And again, I was with my parents, so I would not hang out myself and meet people. I was just walking in the long market street, so not really exciting
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
Sounds like old city?

how is administration for digital nomad in thailand?
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
lshjokkqh there’s a 6 month social visa for Indonesia, might be handy.. I guess most digital nomads just do tourist visa here or if they’re living here long term there used to be IGLU which is an umbrella company to get employee visa in Thailand while having a source of income from outside Thailand (minimum $2500/mo), of which $700 was taken for taxes and overhead
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai7h
IGLU isn’t accepting new ppl right now but there’s some competition.. or possible to start your own company anyways

Organising Sketch files… something I do not do! I build most things myself or alternately export everything a dev needs. If I hand them over though then I retrospectively organise.

Designers need a basic knowledge at a *minimum* of HTML and CSS. However, I’d just say we need an understanding of technical implementation in general. You need to know what’s possible, what’s not possible and roughly how much time something will add to a project VS the value it’ll add.

I'm slowly making my way through Eduardo Galeano's The Open Veins of Latin America, and I recommend it to anyone who went to grade or high school in the global North who wants to visit L America for any length of time.

Helps explain the current unrest. The policies described in the book continue, untrammeled or worse, 40 years after the book was published.
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai6h
zzwiklchr there is also the Thailand Elite visa which IMO is actually a really good deal (compared to IGLU) _if_ you think you’ll stay here several years
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai6h
~$16k for 5 years, which on a year-by-year basis is pretty generous
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai6h
plus some random benefits like expedited immigration and 24 livery airport transfers/yr
hidden for non-membersin #chiang-mai6h
Yeah that’s true, $300/mo vs $700/mo

Hi Designers! Mobile design ❓ any advice as to the best way to indicate that a horizontal scroll is available? Context is a toolbar with several buttons, 2 of them are off-screen on load. An arrow? Is leaving half the button visible with the rest hidden enough for a mobile user to know what to do…?

Animation can help showing there’s more with a scroll
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
Partially showing one of the elements too — if you can control how that appears in different device widths
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
Off center the first button in the scrollbar
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
I don’t like animations because they aren’t persistent
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
if they miss the animation or forget, no dice
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
horizontal scrolling is something I haven’t seen implemented well
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
I’ve done in several apps
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
What worked the best was a subtle animation on launch
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
You can either dismiss it after the user scrolls for the first time or time it out
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
it’s just not a common interface heuristic
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
I know it’s been done - I’m not saying it’s impossible
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
htxfwmb be careful on Android, that scroll can be extra tricky there
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
just saying, showing an animation at the beginning and expecting the user to remember it’s there later might not be effective, especially if there’s been some time since their first usage
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
Also be careful with iOS’s default back-swipe action, so it doesn’t overlap with your design
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
Hmm, interesting things to consider. Yeah, playing around with my various android apps I use, the horizontal scroll seems to be pre-learned, there’s no good indication. Instagram for example, I had no idea what to do for the first couple of weeks. In this context it wouldn’t be an app you’d frequently use, so I think the indicator needs to be pretty obvious
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
I’ve used a number of apps where I tested it quickly and came back a month or two later, and the interactions that were unnatural were effectively hidden from me
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
That’s the state of mobile design
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
Too many complex things, not enough space to explain everything
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
We design in a world of compromises

Yup, currently we have a vertical ‘drawer’ to expand the toolbar and access the excess buttons (which are optional/nice-to-have type controls - that’s why they don’t get main real estate) but I guess they haven’t found this to work for the users and came back to me requestin a horizontal scroll
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
What was the problem with the drawer?
hidden for non-membersin #_design4h
I’m not clear (I’m not being brought into the decision making meetings with the client at the moment) but I will check with them. It may have something to do with height restrictions, I will see about it. Just kinda sanity checking the idea as I prototype the request for them

Colombia, one of the world’s most bio-diverse countries - second only to Brazil. It occupies the first position worldwide in number of orchids and birds, second position in plants, amphibians, butterflies and fresh water fish, third place in species of palm trees and reptiles and globally holds the fourth position in biodiversity of mammals.
Home to some of the friendliest people in the world, who have been through such serious struggles in recent history but will still welcome you, or anyone who needs help, into their home. It has pueblos that have transformed themselves.
It has Caribbean costas, crystal blue seas, ancient city walls, scuba-diving with sharks. Treks to long forgotten cities. Andean mountains, hiking, exploring. A whole region of coffee growers, growing some of the most delicious coffee in the world. See turtles hatching, humpback whales breaching, dolphins.
Dance salsa (or try). Celebrate carnival in Barranquilla, dance more salsa. Climb 700+ steps up a massive rock. Dunk some cheese in hot chocolate. Take cable-cars and over the city to huge national parks. Drink local artisanal beers. See lots of statues of plump ladies. Take photos in front of a million different colored houses. Throw rocks at explosives!

Watergate was a domestic political scandal. Ukraine has serious national security implications... or maybe we're not on the same page about that.

So from my perspective it's a break and enter vs revoking support of a critical ally. Presidents can set foreign policy, of course, but when they're doing so out of personal self-interest, at odds with the national interest, that seems like a pretty big deal to me.

hidden for non-membersin #_politics2h
zsonnkann Sure, and there are plenty of other geopolitical fiascos to consider (North Korea, Turkey/Syria, Saudi Arabia, whatever the hell happened with the Qatar blockade and Jared Kushner, and the list goes on), but Ukraine provides an approachable case study in Trumpian corruption and self-dealing. It took place in a recent timeframe long after the campaign and inauguration, involves a relatively limited cast of characters, and the evidence is overwhelming. The GOP doesn't even dispute the details, they've just been nitpicking and engaging in character assassination and conspiratorial deflection.

I believe in capitalism, but a fundamental principle of capitalism is meritocracy - which can’t exist when there are massive inequities of opportunity, resources and access

and it’s allowed the Dems to double down on their toxic direction
hidden for non-membersin #_politics51min
I'm more technocratic / liberal.

and the direction of the Democratic party really, really concerns me

I was hoping Trump would be the wake up call…but the Dems never got the message that Trump didn’t win 2016…they lost it…but they treat it like it was a fluke

the kind of stuff that destroys entire communities and creates economic serfs

Yeah I think many truck owners want to say Fuck You! with their car and this design accomplishes that

People don't drive around a Hummer H2/H3 because they're good vehicles. They're not. They're driving them around to make a statement
hidden for non-membersin #_politics37min
just one example of what I’m talking about
hidden for non-membersin #_politics37min
we’re not even talking about issues that affect real people anymore
hidden for non-membersin #_gear37min
Yeah but there was already a "thing" in the states heh >https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_181>
hidden for non-membersin #_politics36min
every day, it’s more bullshit about the Trump impeachment…I guess nothing else has happened in the US
hidden for non-membersin #_gear36min
I know it was totally different and at a different time
hidden for non-membersin #_politics36min
the entire country has just been put on pause while this charade goes on
hidden for non-membersin #_politics36min
glad that we’ve solved all the problems temporarily
hidden for non-membersin #_gear36min
I'm seriously pretty interested in seeing how it works out.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear35min
Also The military is highly interested in EV's
hidden for non-membersin #_politics35min
oh, I forgot - for 10 years we could barely get anything done, but congress has found incredible clarity on Hong Kong
hidden for non-membersin #_gear35min
I don't doubt they're in line already
hidden for non-membersin #_politics35min
excuse me - everything has been solved in the US besides Hong Kong and Trump Impeachment
hidden for non-membersin #_politics34min
we live in lucky times

honestly I have not read up too much on it. I should carve out some time and check it out. So I'm not really sure of who he sees as the market for this product
hidden for non-membersin #_gear33min
It's not going to have Model 3 success, but in the future it'll be an icon of... something 😆
hidden for non-membersin #_gear32min
I've already heard from a few friends who own businesses and drive trucks for work and they all say they could never show up in something that looks like a Cybertruck or their clients and employees would think less of them.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear32min
The vintage car world is full of "icons". Interesting models that went big in a certain direction. It either gets accepted into mainstream or it does not. Fun none the less
hidden for non-membersin #_gear31min
ivmcgyvuiarwk Yeah, the truck crowd itself will not embrace it imho. It's too out there
hidden for non-membersin #_gear30min
cvltoshwronij Lets say a large truck (without a trailer) breaks down, and that shows up to tow it away. I'd argue that guy who called the tow doesn't give a damn if it's another semi, the usual large tower, or a Cybertruck.... But, the latter will definitely leave an impression
hidden for non-membersin #_gear29min
I need to read up on it. Why the decision to make such a non traditional design?
hidden for non-membersin #_gear29min
yes, agreed... but how many truck owners are going to go out and buy something that looks like a Cybertruck in the first place.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear29min
hshzlluvqzwrbzxk it's Musk being Musk.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear29min
oh yeah. BECAUSE I CAN
hidden for non-membersin #_gear29min
14k lbs of tow capacity, with torque right away? If the chassis is strong enough, that's going to be an interesting sell for some businesses that have high fuel costs
hidden for non-membersin #_gear28min
yes, but Ford and others will have already shipped their trucks
hidden for non-membersin #_gear28min
Ford that has proven track record of selling trucks.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear28min
It might be the idea of remaking what a truck could be and work backwards towards more acceptable designs. Wants to flex the muscles first
hidden for non-membersin #_gear27min
Ford's EV Mustang honestly looks great. What a wonderful example of creative stealing
hidden for non-membersin #_gear27min
I sooooo want the Mustang
hidden for non-membersin #_gear27min
yeah that's cool as hell
hidden for non-membersin #_gear27min
I wish the best for Ford in their EV transition, and hope they don't eff it up. They're not really a tech company
hidden for non-membersin #_gear27min
the biggest thing Ford/others don't have is the autonomous driving technology that Tesla does.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear27min
right
hidden for non-membersin #_gear26min
Yeah but the sign that they look in that direction shows that main stream companies (not tech per say) are paying attention.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear26min
If they play the same old game of cars that require frequent service to pad dealer fees, they're going to get a bad rep
hidden for non-membersin #_gear26min
That's the point for EV owners. So much less to go wrong, lifetime maintenance near zilch
hidden for non-membersin #_gear25min
Tesla's even consume break pads less (frequently) due to the aggressive regen
hidden for non-membersin #_gear25min
It's like Porsche coming out with the Cayenne. Purists gave them shit. Like why make an SUV? They had to get in that market since a lot of consumers buy those vehicles. They could have been in danger of being left behind.
hidden for non-membersin #_politics23min
So brave of them to be solving all the problems
hidden for non-membersin #_gear22min
Lets all keep in mind The whole point of Tesla was to give the auto industry a collective kick in the pants and move towards EVs. It's working, just slower than they anticipated, which gave them to opportunity to actual survive and keep kicking the auto industry around
hidden for non-membersin #_gear22min
And they will be bullying the auto industry for awhile
hidden for non-membersin #_flying21min
wait then why can’t i redeem with miles even now on latam using AA?

Absolutely. I like that he is challenging ideas. If anything, he's good at that.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear20min
yah, I'm rooting for Musk's ideas
hidden for non-membersin #_gear19min
yeah it's good for someone like him in industries. His legacy will be his ideas even if they don't stick in the way that he maybe wants. The world needs people to push the boundaries
hidden for non-membersin #brazil13min
Sunday indeed they close Av Paulista to cars, so only pedestrians are allowed. I’m in Rio unfortunately so i’ll have to pass =/
hidden for non-membersin #_gear5min
i would drive one

Interesting, I loved the food in Da Nang and Hoi An, but can’t find anything delicious here in Saigon.
