It’s Not Too Late
Post from February 5, 2016 (↻ June 6, 2021), filed under Art and Design.
One thing I played with now is reenact what stuck with me when reading Ellen Langer’s Mindfulness, the recreation of a particular type of ad—for charity. It’s not too late to send one dollar. To whom? Go see for yourself.
As suggested on the project page, I’m not affiliated with the charity organizations (however, I am an EFF member). I’ve informed all of them, though, and am happy to have received some early backup for this little campaign.
I’m Jens Oliver Meiert, and I’m an engineering manager and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to the W3C and the WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. Other than that, I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

Perhaps my most comprehensive book: The Web Development Glossary (2020). With explanations and definitions for literally thousands of terms from Web Development and related fields, building on Wikipedia as well as the MDN Web Docs. Available at Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Books, and Leanpub.
