    Really fun idea!

    One thing that irks me though. Its not 100% css if you have one line of js, however tiny it is.

    Yes! Did a whole podcast and write about about our "setup" both desk items and software:

    I can't tell which I love more: the typeface or the website.

    If youre working off a framework (like bootstrap), it might also be easier to load up a table in an auto-refresh browser and edit the CSS live. If youre comfortable with that sort of thing.

  • Posted to Twitter Removes the Egg Avatar, Mar 31, 2017

    new avatar

    They say they changed it for 3 reasons:

    1. Rebrand
    2. Some people actually liked it and never uploaded their own
    3. It became associated with trolls

    uh ok...

    1. ok fine
    2. So people enjoyed it and this is a problem? Not everyone wants to upload their face, they just want a sort of rss feed that twitter provides. Why not have an avatar maker where you can pick shapes and colors, perhaps even brands and teams.

    Why do I feel like they are only solving for #1 here? Those #2 people are still going to keep their default, and trolls will keep trolling and will make the new default notorious as well.

  • Posted to Best CSS editor for Mac is back! Espresso 3, in reply to Chris Mousdale , Mar 30, 2017

    Ditto! I learned CSS from school but I never really understood how it worked until Espresso. I got to quickly play around with values and got immediate feedback, plus the controls helped explain as well.

    A great example of how code doesn't need to be "dumbed down" in order for it to become easier and clearer.

  • Posted to Any tips/resources for public speaking at conferences?, Mar 26, 2017
    • Don't be afraid of adding humor. Its always welcomed and memorable.
    • For each point you want to make, try to think of (or even Google) an off-screen way to demonstrate that if possible. A personal story also counts.
    • Repeat your main points at least 3 times: 1. At the start, 2. One by one, 3. At the end. If you have 1 main point, make a catchy bite sized, memorable sentence you can repeat.
    • Avoid as much text on the screen as possible. Thats what your mouth is for.
    • Have a "Go and Do", something practical listeners can do right away.
    • When estimating the time of your presentation, remember that you're more likely to speak too quickly. If possible have some flexible examples you can add or remove.
    • Take everything out of your pockets and put your phone on silent.
