    I think the most exciting thing about this rebrand is that I discovered they now offer a free tier while I poked around on their website.

    Also... I'm going to miss the green :(

    Tell me more about this product that they're launching next year. :D

    This feels so nostalgic, but in a very fresh kinda way. It's fun to see the ways that technology has changed here. Things like text masks that, in the days of yore, would have required bitmap images, can be done with CSS. Something about this site is just comforting. And, as Steven mentioned, it makes me want to build a blog.

    I'm dubious about this article based on the very first sentence:

    Design-led organizations have become the norm...

    Tell that to every designer working outside of the tech bubble.

    I'm also always a little wary of people that quote themselves.

    Instinct transforms technical skill into artistry.

    It looks great. However the lack of real field labels is a usability killer. I clicked on the first field and immediately forgot what I was supposed to be filling in. Placeholders aren't accessible by screen readers either, so a label should be considered a must have.

    Something's fishy about this post and this account. Jessica Miller has got to be one of the most 'American' names I could think of, yet the site is riddled with grammatical errors and improper English such as:

    "Wow, I can finish much more projects now!"

    and

    Get real return for your time

    Her Twitter account has no tweets and a watermarked image as a profile photo

    The Flowmagic page on Betalist shows her as a Co-Founder along with some other fellows.

    The whole thing just feels a little off. Not sure I'd trust them with my data.

    ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    I'd be willing to pay $1/mo for a service like DN. That'd be way better than a captcha on every comment.
