    S'all good!

    I mean whether or not many details were given in the post, the secrecy does makes sense - I'm not sure many other businesses would go about this any differently. I just feel really badly for their team.

    "We quietly began to put the word out that we were open to having conversations about alternative futures for Teehan+Lax"

    ........ further down the post ........

    "We also needed to ask these questions on behalf of our co-workers without them being involved in the process. This lead us to run through endless scenarios trying to balance the needs of those who would join us at Facebook and those who would not."

  • Posted to "@" symbols with usernames in URLs, in reply to Calum Smith , Aug 21, 2014

    Very interesting that @'s work within Twitter URLs, I would have thought they'd keep in consistent with all @'s or no @'s.

    Interestingly enough - and also related to the above - if you remove the @ from an article URL on Medium, you can still access the post (with the @ still appearing in the final URL). However removing the @ from a user's profile page will produce a 404......

    IE - This works: https://medium.com/aminezafri/facebook-cards-95dc415317a1 But this doesnt: https://medium.com/aminezafri/

    Ultimately I definitely agree that @'s have outgrown Twitter, and I suppose if I think about it, I have seen it referenced quite regularly outside of Twitter. However I'm cognizant that I am surrounded by tech people/early adopters, and do still wonder if slower adopters would also agree that @ usage should be commonplace... or maybe it just wouldn't even be an issue in those cases.

    That's awesome! I had checked out the Don Rowing Club online but it's a little bit of a trek for me. Currently I'm eyeing the Learn to Row programs at both Hanlan and Bayside Rowing Club :) Your article was that extra push I needed!

    Really fantastic article Ricardo -- very timely for me!

    The link piqued my interest due to an issue I've been wrestling with lately. That said, a bigger sign was that yesterday I took the first steps to find a rowing club to join here in Toronto!

    Beautiful article -- thanks for the two-fold inspiration :)
