  • Posted to Playlists to get you in the zone. Whatever zone that is..., in reply to Gene M , Sep 26, 2017

    Oh this is nice. Thanks for sharing.

    It reminds me a bit of this Skating playlist I have, but without words.

    Hey Greg, thanks for sharing this. It's rad to get insight into your process and the way you're working over there. Very much respect the work you all do.

    Thanks for the input :) I ended up getting a 13" MacBook Pro. I'll let you know how it handles once it arrives.

    They removed a bunch of info :( They used to say which partner/who on the team worked on projects, and had quite a bit more information before.

    Hey Andrew! Thanks for the feedback and for checking this out!

    I'm less concerned about the fact that radio buttons, or anything like components exist, it's more about people being able to rely on a consistent experience that they've selected, versus one that has been selected for them—and is out of their control. Ideally this experience is the same throughout all of their experiences. e.g. If I could checkout the same way throughout every application on my device—I would imagine I would spend less bandwidth as a person gaining any new familiarity with what I would say is a rudimentary and common experience. Or even something like a sign up process could become universal for a person based on the experience they've selected. The information requested would be the only change in experience.

    Regarding your vacation question, part of the point would be reducing the number of times you do the same thing in multiple places, in totally differently designed ways (at the point of being different) and instead make the content more readily available to you. So rather than opening up AirBnB, Kayak, and Hipmunk—you would just search for a place to stay within a date range. All the content could be provided from those sources, and the rest of the interface, behaviors, mechanisms, etc would be selected by you at some point. I would assume a default setup—but customizable by the person, rather than those companies. The intent is really the the desire to travel, the issues of date, time, price, and payment are individual considerations of that original intent, but don't necessarily need to be that different just because they're coming from different sources.

    Thanks for the well wishes, and again for the feedback. I hope these responses make sense and are helpful :)

    Matt is pretty great. You should check out Working File if you haven't given that a listen yet.

    I kept trying to buy mo.tel but it wouldn't go through. Plus you can do fun naming conventions after .is
