Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, September 22, 2021

I’m currently working with a team to reform and reorganize the internal search engine of a prominent telecom website. It involves a lot of squinting at myriad keywords, custom responses, and rankings.

Yes, it is quickly devolving from a search optimization project to a search and destroy mission. Not necessarily in the military sense, but in the digital slashing-and-burning of content sense. There’s some satisfaction in the exercise, despite the drowning feeling.

more than hue-man
This orange-and-red hued mechanical man looks even more retro-licious when enlarged and stretched out to cover a computer screen desktop background, which is what I just did. I usually go for a background image with blue/black and other dark colors, keeping in mind the visual legibility for the icons residing there. But I came across this piece, liked the look of it (decidedly Rock’em Sock’em Robots reminiscent), and decided I could use a different color spectrum to burn into my retinas for several hours per day.

The original artwork is called “Robot, Fire!” by Sean Tubridy. It’s at least four years old, according to the Flickr upload stamp. It’s aged well.
