    Worth looking into the symbolism of the letter G: http://www.whale.to/b/snake_tail.html

    Supposed to represent the serpent / Snake swallowing tail (Oroboros)

    Also apparently has ties to free-masonry: http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/letter-g.html

    Even though Google's corporate mantra is ‘Don't be evil’. Sounds like Doublespeak to me

    Some of their open source work is great, but seems to have bled over into a SaaS hosting model, which is both refreshing, and suspicious. Refreshing because hosting is always seen as a dry technical discipline which lacks design elements and aesthetic and appeals more to devops than designers. Suspicious because companies like Media Temple / Squarespace have already cornered the boutique hosting market, and The Grid better establish themselves quickly if they want to go up against (mt). Also their business model is not remarkable, and doesn't appeal to the poor. If they had a free service that users could run in exchange for a small banner that mentions The Grid, or a sponsored message, then it could gain wide appeal. Otherwise it's just another rich geeks plaything Netizens have no time for.

    I'm styling this with a Chrome addon called Styler. Author makes a good point about sites which can be customized easily. I love that about sites like craigslist, reddit, hackernews, etc. They don't suffer from 'div soup' https://s3.amazonaws.com/f.cl.ly/items/3l1j1c0l3N403r1l0O0s/2015-08-28_16-35-12.png

    Well now then, all you have to do is resize the browser window and read on an enfeebled mobile sized screen

    Yeah. It turned out to be harder getting this to display in different browsers. I tried using a polyfill for the emoji like Twemoji and Emojify, but they break under different conditions. The site is more or less a browser acid test right now and a learning experience if anything. I will be importing what I learned about this site into future projects for sure. It originally started out as a bit of fun, but mushroomed a bit as more time was allocated to it.

    I provided some alternatives here: http://blog.higg.im/2015/01/12/alternatives-to-hackernews/

    They're not design related, but use the same upvote/karma system that DN and other sites use.
