  • Posted to CSS4 should have nesting., Dec 16, 2015

    Hm, not sure vanilla CSS needs nesting. Nesting is a double-edged sword, it's nice and useful if used right, but also introduces potential for a lot of complexity and misuse. I'd argue it's better in a preprocessor for people who specifically want to use them.

  • Posted to How Product Hunt really works, Dec 16, 2015

    Felt the same way since shortly after they launched. Tried to submit multiple works without success. At first, I thought it was because I was a "new PH user" without much exposure, but realized a lot of friends haven't seen their projects even go up on the site. Feels very "clique-y" to me.

    Ryan's doing great work exposing great apps, but I feel like PH could be more than it currently is. Not very transparent or forgiving (ironically, since it was essentially built for those reasons), and seems to favour specific people/products.

    Nice, I really like the colour scheme and hero. Would love to see how it looked before this for comparison :)

    Felt the same way about this. I feel like he brought you down to his level, and beat you in it.

    Actually, that isn't too bad if they had a huge capital or even seed funding. Still, that 200-350k would've been better used on marketing or something...

    How'd they get that Twitter handle too? Damn.

    Seriously though, part of me is scared about their financial future + business model knowing they had to have spent a lot on that domain name.

    Forgot about that! I agree, but that's on the assumption you'll be opening the exact same apps every time after you close them. For me, close all would be useful for times I know I'm not going to use all the apps I have open. eg I find myself opening a bunch of social apps at the same time while binge-consuming feeds, then closing all of them for the rest of the day while I get to work (then I open a bunch of todo list apps).

    Some great ideas in here I think Apple should consider: clear all, settings history and search, and siri spell.

    Hi John! Thanks for doing this :D

    Saw your TED talk a while back and ever since then I've been inspired by the work you've led and experimented in. I guess my question for you is something I'm started to gain interest in:

    With everything going digital, where do you think print design is heading? One of the things that made print design complex was the limits of paper (size, ink, etc.) but digital more or less transcends that. Is print just slowly making a transition to "web design" (dealing with "responsive" paper, etc.)?
