Balzac

11 Jul

If the artist does not fling himself, without reflecting, into his work, as Curtis flung himself into the yawning gulf, as the soldier flings himself into the enemy’s trenches, and if, once in this crater, he does not work like a miner on whom the walls of his gallery have fallen in; if he contemplates difficulties instead of overcoming them one by one … he is simply looking on at the suicide of his own talent.

– Honoré de Balzac

Hemingway

11 Jul

There is seven-eights of it under water for every part that shows. Anything you know you can eliminate and it only strengthens your iceberg. It is the part that doesn’t show. If a writer omits something because he does not know it then there is a hole in the story.

If I’ve learned one thing in the 14 years I’ve been a full-time cartoonist, it’s that you can not let anyone else define your professionalism. It has to be a personal ethos to which you adhere despite third party influence or acceptance. The old measuring sticks for professionalism are going away and now more than ever it’s time for independent creatives to set the bar. Set it high.

The Error Only Approach to Form Field Validation

3 Jul

Christian Holst’s article Form-Field Validation: The Errors-Only Approach outlines an interesting error message strategy. The idea is that when a form is submitted and errors are returned, only the fields that need to be corrected are (re)displayed to the user instead of showing them the whole form again.

This makes sense conceptually because the users only see the items they have to correct so it’s immensely clear. The problem, which is a show-stopper, is the loss of context. If the user wants to change their inputs based on their errors, they’ve already lost the context of the form itself.

It’s an interesting concept though and may have some specific use cases where it might be advantageous to minimize the amount of data displayed to the user, like in mobile contexts.
