    Flippin' reeks of privilege.

    It's just another term for design generalist rather than a specialist. It can be useful to communicate this difference in some situations. But it does sound a little stupid.

    Some feedback from me.

    Did you even do any market validation on this one dude. I'm just not sure I understand what problem this product is solving.

    Sure it's pretty and all, beautiful fonts and colours but do people really need more poop bike based content?

    I blame dribbble.

    What I got from this: 'I've just discovered UX design and now I'm going to shit on visual designers because I'm more important than them"

    A stupid point delivered in an arrogant style.

    As you may know Safari already has a visual editor for CSS tweaking:

    I've been doing this sort of thing. I'd like to add the following:

    On iOS, use restrictions settings to disable Safari. And don't commit the password to your memory, just write it down somewhere.

    Or get a dumb phone to use occasionally, I bought one from Amazon for $30 that just has calls and SMS. It's amazing how much more head space you can get from not being connected all the time.

    I think that was what Matthew was saying. That the title should have been: "Design sprints are not a silver bullet".

    This is a fantastic post, very interesting to hear about the downsides to adopting design systems too early on.

    Especially good point about how we often overstate the value of consistency.

    Problem is, everyone has an agenda, everyone is promoting something, it's just a sliding scale. So as you say, choosing where the 'bullshit' threshold is would be hard.

    How about someone just builds a browser plugin so we can filter content marketing articles out of DN?
