    I would make the indicator that the site is scrollable more clear, and perhaps place it closer to the bottom of the viewport. At it's current size and position I mistook it for a T&C or Privacy Policy link.

    Great write-up Joel!

    I recently joined a company that practices Scrum and agile development, and it has changed how I look at software design/development. I almost exclusively work on features in parallel with our developers, and they all go live. We work in tiny increments, which means we will release each of those increments and see what happens. Did it have the effect we'd hoped? If not, we evaluate why and either kill the feature or make it better. If yes, we keep improving on this feature until it is no longer worth the effort. This means that we never have months of work that goes untested on the assumption that it will solve the problem we have.

    I'm thinking about writing a piece on working in a cross-functional agile team as a designer, I think a lot of us are still struggling with the waterfall methods that burden our industry.

    Doesn't that touch screen look very unresponsive, or alternatively that the touch areas are way too small? They kept missing the buttons/menu items in the video.

    I believe the problem is that these posts float to the top so easily. Any post with 3 upvotes in an hour or 2 (easy to get a few friends/coworkers to vote for your post) is going to be ranked in the top 5.

    I don't think we'll ever get rid of these posts, and the solution is to make them less discoverable. I wrote about this yesterday here: https://www.designernews.co/stories/87276-is-the-dn-algorithm-placing-too-much-value-on-time

    Wow, a really well executed project about a very important topic. Those videos are incredibly engaging.

    I don't think that is what he intended at all. I think he's referring to the endless posts of "Free UI Kit", "eCommerce Mockup" etc.

    Guess OP will have to answer :)

    Good idea, but I do think it would generate fewer page loads, which means less income for DN.
