OpenDyslexic is a free-to-use font that is designed to help those with dyslexia read better. The text is weighted, having a heavier bottom, which is thought to increase readability for dyslexic people. You can download it for free here.
I don’t have dyslexia myself, but in the event any of my followers do, I thought I’d share. Maybe it will help people.
Beautiful Bicycle Monday
La Boriosa: Based in Treviso, Italy, Biascagne Cicli makes custom, mostly single-speed and fixed-gear bikes from used and vintage new-on-stock components.
Shape Field Bike: San Francisco–based studio Shape Field Office partnered with Nicholas Riddle, a framebuilder and founder of the Urban Mobility Lab at California College of the Arts, to create this handsome porteur-style conveyance.
Bough Bike: Dutch designer Jan Gunneweg sculpts bespoke wooden bikes from his workshop in Alkmaar. He’s planning to introduce a lower-priced wooden bicycle line.
Thonet Bentwood Concept: Legendary furniture maker Thonet commissioned Andy Martin and his London-based studio to design this limited-edition roadster, marrying the low-tech methods that Michael Thonet used to build his 1830s chairs with 21st-century technology. Martin didn’t rely entirely on traditional steam-bending techniques but employed a CNC machine to cut and join the wood frame, which sits on off-the-shelf carbon wheels. Such craftsmanship doesn’t come cheap; you can get yours for $70,000.
Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept
Aston Martin marks its 100th Anniversary with a new concept that pays tribute to both its past and potential future with the CC100 Speedster Concept. The open air racer takes its influence from the legendary Stirling Moss-piloted DBR1 and is powered by a 6.0L V12 and has a body and interior constructed from carbon fiber. The CC100 can propel itself from 0-60 in just over four seconds and its top speed is limited to 180 mph.
The Buycott App
Lets you check the connection of products to their parent companies to help you avoid buying from vendors such as the Koch brothers or those companies that don’t support LGBTQ rights.
And it’s super easy to use.
Today’s positive user response to the app has overwhelmed their servers. If you can’t get it today, try again later.
Dang, the Android version had to be taken down temporarily due to the aforementioned server overload. Definitely going to be keeping an eye out for its reappearance.
