  • Posted to Uber's Undoing Part III: Redemption, Oct 26, 2018

    On launching the rebrand case study site, Uber spelled ‘Principles’ as “Principals.” I pointed this out, and within a few days it was fixed. Perhaps it was a Freudian slip, indicating skepticism about the sincerity of the updated moral code.

    Love it.

    Fuck, this is cool, visually. Good to see people experimenting with landing pages like this!

  • Posted to How Braintree cut time spent on design critiques by 50%, May 22, 2017

    I (and I think others) would appreciate an obvious disclosure at the beginning, stating clearly: a) that you, the writer, work for Figma and b) whether or not the company being interviewed was in any way influenced / compensated / paid. Otherwise, it can arguably easily come off as if you’re writing this from an unbiased third party’s perspective.

    It’s true that there are other “telltale” signs that this is Figma-endorsed, e.g. the URL, Medium branding, etc. but there are surely other users who wouldn't be familiar with this and, heck, if you have nothing to hide, why not?

    This, in particular, was a red flag for me, as it seemed to be more mentioned nonchalantly rather than appropriately disclosed:

    When Craig’s team started testing new critique methods, he suggested Figma — a tool that’s like Google Docs for design, allowing people to collaborate in design files and share them with a browser link.

    I would've rephrased to:

    Figma —the tool that we built that’s like Google Docs for design—…

    (Note the addition of the trailing em dash that makes the appositive stand out further.)

    Ethics FTW.

    Thanks for the response, Maxwell! I first saw this on DN desktop.

    This title, in combination with the color of the badge (which resembles Ask DN), is very misleading. It makes me—and likely others—think that this is a serious question posed by a DN user.

    I think that there should be restrictions on what titles are allowed by advertisers who show native ads on DN.

    Edit: interestingly, ”Sponsor:” prefaces the title when editing a comment: Screenshot
