macos - Shortcut for toggling between different windows of same app? - Ask Different
“Note: This only works if all windows are in the same Space, not if they are spread over multiple Spaces, which includes fullscreen. To overcome this, use Cmd ⌘Tab as usual and on the icon of the application you want to switch windows in press the down arrow key (with Cmd ⌘ still pressed). Then use left/right keys to navigate to the desired window across spaces and desktops.”

macos - In Mac OS, what is the keyboard shortcut to switch between windows of the same application? - Super User
This goes over the keyboard shortcuts for moving focus to the next window of the current application (and it seemingly confirms that Command+backtick doesn’t work across spaces.

macos - Workspaces not switching automatically - Ask Different
“Despite the fact that I have told mission control under 10.8 to spaces when switching applications(to the key window), it does not appear to work. In fact the only time spaces works is when I tell it to switch using keyboard shortcuts. This started happening only once I unchecked show dashboard as space.”

macos - How can I switch spaces instantly? - Ask Different
(On speeding up Spaces’ draw time on macOS:)
“How are you currently changing Spaces? Ctrl/num is already significantly quicker than ctrl/arrow or touchpad swipe. The move, btw, is very probably to mask the window redraw. Trying to redraw it all at once would probably look really bad, so freezing the screen as it curtains likely covers that redraw time needed.”

Are two spaces better than one? | Butterick’s Practical Typography
“True, the re­searchers found that putting two spaces af­ter a pe­riod de­liv­ered a ‘small’ but ‘sta­tis­ti­cally … de­tectable’ im­prove­ment in read­ing speed—about 3%—but cu­ri­ously, only for those read­ers who al­ready type with two spaces. For ha­bit­ual one-spac­ers, there was no ben­e­fit at all.

“Fur­ther­more, the re­searchers only tested sam­ples of a mono­spaced font on screen (roughly as shown be­low). They didn’t test pro­por­tional fonts, which they ac­knowl­edge are far more com­mon. Nor did they test the ef­fect of two-spac­ing on the printed page. The au­thors con­cede that any of these test-de­sign choices could’ve af­fected their findings.”

One space between each sentence, they said. Science just proved them wrong. - The Washington Post
Reading speed only improved marginally, the paper found, and only for the 21 “two-spacers,” who naturally typed with two spaces between sentences.  The majority of one-spacers, on the other hand, read at pretty much the same speed either way.  And reading comprehension was unaffected for everyone, regardless of how many spaces followed a period.
The major reason to use two spaces, the researchers wrote, was to make the reading process smoother, not faster.  Everyone tended to spend fewer milliseconds staring at periods when a little extra blank space followed it.

Yes yes yes. But two spaces is better!

"Farewell" to an old architect of distinction called Neave Brown
At the age of 34 with his design of 22-32 Winscombe Street in Dartmouth Park, North London and their completion two years later, Neave showed the world what he could do. Children’s bedrooms were placed on the ground floor, with big barn doors opening on to a communal garden; the parents’ bedroom and living room were at the top, while the family zone was in the middle, the whole connected by spiral stairs. “It was built as a community, an extended family,” he said, “When you heard children’s laughter downstairs, you were never quite sure if they were your kids or someone else’s.”

A community space and possible future.
If the dynamic medium is to serve as the foundation for new modes of thought and communication, it must lift all people, not just those traditionally advantaged by technology. There is no product we can ship to achieve this goal.

Instead, we are building Dynamicland as a community space, where the people of Oakland will come to “live in the future” and shape the medium with us. We are actively drawing our community from a diverse set of people, with a focus on those who are underserved or alienated by current forms of computing.

This community space is a model for a new kind of civic institution —
a public library for 21st-century literacy.
