Balsamiq Review - Decent application for wireframes by Ramona E. March 28, 2018
Decent application for wireframes
What do you like best?
It is easy to use and set up, creating alternative wireframes is a neat feature and it supports exporting to all commonly used formats. It has many basic shapes and images out of the box.

What do you dislike?
The style is sometimes too cartoony for my taste. It would be nice to add functionality for creating own shapes and/or templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product
Do not try to create perfect wireframes using Balsamiq. Use it only to draft and try out different interfaces and designs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use this to quickly create wireframes for designing my projects. It helps me to quickly get a feel about how the interface should look, work and function.

Balsamiq Review - graphical user interface mockup and website wireframe builder by G2 Crowd User in Computer Software April 10, 2018
graphical user interface mockup and website wireframe builder
What do you like best?
Ability to create wireframes using a really rough “sketch” style which conveys the unfinished nature of a design.

Intuitive interface making it incredibly easy to get up and running with the tool.

What do you dislike?
Hard to scroll through the drag and drop library of UI elements.

Limited sitemap creation

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
text customization of complex elements like radio button and checkbox groups, navigation bars, data tables, and tag clouds

"Intuition is Essential." Writing Advice from Gabriel García Márquez | Literary Hub
[When I read Kafka,] all of a sudden I understood how many other possibilities existed in literature outside the rational and extremely academic examples I’d come across in secondary school text books.

Balsamiq Review - Great Prototyping by Linda P. April 13, 2018
Great Prototyping
What do you like best?
I really like how quickly you can get a mockup completed - great for visualizing designs after a write down ideas session. Simple to use, drag & drop, supports data access and clickable areas to chain pages together. Fantastic design tool at a very reasonable price!

What do you dislike?
I actually don't like that you cannot edit the predetermined icons. As far as I am aware, its not possible to even change their angles. Also, the opacity is already predefined, you can choose only about 4 or 5 declares of opacity, as opposed to a percentage.

Recommendations to others considering the product
This can be a very simple program nevertheless can be extremely powerful if applied correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I used to be able to become trained and educated more in user design, ability, and creating prototypes that helped to increase my knowledge in IT.

The Vonnegut Universe : books
I'm not really sure if this is the right subreddit to post this in, but I don't know where else it would fit.Anyway, Kurt Vonnegut was an American science fiction writer born in 1922 and died in 2007, so it goes. Over the course of his near-50-year literary career, he published 14 novels and numerous short stories. Of his 14 novels, 12 of them take place in the same universe and I am going to tell you how they connect to each other.Vonnegut's first book was Player Piano, published in 1952. Its plot follows several storylines one of which takes place in Ilium, New York, a minor location in Vonnegut's fourth novel, Cat's Cradle, and the long-time of home of Billy Pilgrim, the main character of Vonnegut's most popular book, Slaughterhouse Five.While Pilgrim is the lead in Slaughterhouse Five, major characters from Vonnegut's other works play minor parts in the story. These include Howard Campbell Jr., the main character of Mother Night; Elliot Rosewater, the main character of God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater; Tralfamardore, the home planet of Salo, a supporting character in The Sirens of Titan; and, most prominently, Slaughterhouse Five features hack-science fiction writer Kilgore Trout. Trout is the father of Leon Trout, the narrator of Galapogos, a major character in Timequake, has a cameo in Jailbird, and is one the two main characters in Breakfast of Champions.The other main character in Breakfast of Champions is Dwayne Hoover. Hoover was married to a woman named Celia, who almost went to prom with Felix Waltz, the brother of the main character and narrator of Deadeye Dick.Also, a painter by the name of Rabo Karabekian has a minor role in Breakfast of Champions and is the main character of Bluebeard.Vonnegut wrote two other novels, Slapstick and Hocus Pocus, but I didn't find any characters or elements that connected them to Vonnegut's other works.Also, Vonnegut, himself, served as the narrator of Slaughterhouse Five, and Timequake. via /r/books

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlSxrxMYn8A

The extraordinary and thrilling true story of four friends (Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, and Jared Abrahamson) living an ordinary existence who brazenly attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in US history. But not everything is as it seems, and as the daring theft unfolds through each of their perspectives, each of them start to question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives is simply a misguided attempt at achieving the American Dream.

'Too expensive' to delete millions of police mugshots of innocent people, minister claims - Up to 20m facial images are retained - six years after High Court ruling that the practice is unlawful because of the 'risk of stigmatisation'
Millions of police mugshots of innocent people cannot be deleted because it would be too expensive, a government minister has claimed – despite a High Court ruling that the practice is unlawful. The work would have to be “done manually” by local forces, making the costs “difficult to justify”, a committee of MPs investigating the controversy has been told.

Janelle Shane - with some effort - trains neural networks to make knitting patterns. Then knitters from Ravelry make them. I love this: weird AI being taken at face value by people for art's sake.
