    Great work. I'd like the customization controls on the right to change the previews of all the icons on the left too!

  • Posted to Gmail as a Google Inbox Replacement, Feb 19, 2019

    Gmail is just nowhere near what Inbox was.

    I don't know why no one else mentions this, but some of the best parts of Inbox is the single column UI, the favicon style colored or photo avatars next to each email, and most importantly DATE GROUPING. I can archive the whole past week or month easily, and it makes visually parsing your inbox so much easier.

    That being said, I am so disappointed with Google in general these days I am very tempted to just stop using Gmail once Inbox is dead. Sadly moving my whole email life to another service can be a bit of a hassle.

    Big ol' middle finger to Google here. I can't believe how much I used to defend the poor decision making of these big tech companies.

    Mostly agree, but a couple of things I think aren't entirely fair.

    Logins in modals are fine if the login button is not hidden in a dropdown or menu and the modal is accessible via a URL. In that context there are no extra steps as described.

    I haven't used the Slack magic-link in a bit, but if I remember correctly it does not send you a temporary password, instead it sends you a temporary link that logs you in automatically. So while I agree it's annoying to go to your email just to login, once you've done that it's a lot simpler than described in the article. You just click the link.

    1Password does not handle multi-page logins automatically.

    In fact since switching I have been fairly consistently disappointed with 1Password's quality of auto-fill compared to LastPass. Kind of regretting switching my family over (I was tempted by the prettier design).

    Welp it thinks my coworking space in Brooklyn is in Scottsdale, Arizona. I don't think we are using a VPN or anything here, so not sure what's going on there.

  • Posted to The New Design Frontier: Explore the widest-reaching report on how design affects business, Jan 30, 2019

    This feels so disconnected from my day to day work as the only designer and only CSS guy. Yet I still feel the pressure to make a Design System and up-to-date docs and manageable CSS and iterative feature ideas. Yeah my company does not have 27 designers, that's more designers than people.

    Just like my relationship with every other big tech company, I used to look up to InVision and the awesome work they put out, and now it just feels like another big faceless (HI IM CLARK FROM INVISION AND I'M IN YOUR EMAIL) corporation that wasn't able to remain relevant to my workflow or my philosophy towards design.

    I know there are some great people at InVision so I hate to poo-poo their hard work, but I know I'm not the only one who feels like the design conversation Invision is driving is no longer relevant to smaller teams.

    Looks nice, but it appears tied to its templating system which kind of kills its utility to me. I want a headless CMS that I can use to manage content for any templating system I want to switch it to.

    Awesome! I'll give it another look when that's released.

    Fortunately no, we have a good culture about trusting employees and everyone is remote so time tracking gets awkward. I don’t get companies that feel like it’s a good idea to track employees like that.
