    These guys looked very promising, but eventually shut down: https://assemblymade.com

    I can't remember if it was Assembly or another one of those sites, but they always seem to suffer from too much noise. It seemed like new projects were proposed every day by an excited individual who "has a great idea", pushing yesterday's good ideas down an infinite list. You might find something cool, but the user who posted it left ages (months, days, hours) ago, and new users aren't going to scroll that far down to find it.

    Make it easy to find projects with momentum (maybe list commit activity if it is dev related, or other measures of progress), while also allowing new projects to bubble up. There might be something there with new users vs. returning users.

    I like your "hours free per week" slider, but I've seen a few of these sites rise and fall over the years. What will you do differently from similar sites in the past?

    Looks pretty similar to mo.js.

    This has been around since CS5, it was just a manual task.

    I'm all in favor of Adobe refining existing tools instead of releasing entirely new ones, if it means they get to spend more time fixing their performance bugs and cleaning up the interface. Too bad they're not doing that.

    That's interesting. Can you share any screenshots of a page with Adelle and the System Fonts on the same page?

    What rendering engine is this based on, again?

    I love this!

    • You gave me my local radio station without requiring me to log in.
    • I can browse radio programs while I read the news.
    • I like how your handle ads, too. Big version during the audio ad, small version afterwards.
    • I get it now, but it was a little confusing on the first run...”does clicking this open a new page, or play audio?” “Oh, it opens a side panel.”
    • You should add support for desktop notifications! Alert me of the show title when the next program starts.
    • I was about to be mad when searching stopped the audio. Really glad you threw in the “resume” features when the page needs to reload.
    • Any integration with NPR One would be cool. “Send to NPR One App” button or Handoff support.

    Keep up the amazing work!
