Steelmanning: How to Discover the Truth by Helping Your Opponent
by Chris Meyer (6min)
If he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion. Easier on the ego, less effort, and time-saving. But it doesn’t get us closer to the truth.

Why do so many brands change their logos and look like everyone else?
by Radek Sienkiewicz (5min)
All the quirks, peculiarities, and idiosyncrasies of both tech and fashion logos were dropped and replaced with a simple sans serif font. Some say one of the main reasons for the sans serif logo trend is readability. Especially on mobile, but everywhere else as well: from huge billboards to tiny footer links at the bottom of mobile websites.
