"your physical appearance really shouldn't influence your hiring at all"
1000% spot on.
Definitely second the ease of use and fun of Kap. Really enjoying it so far!
Here's my portfolio (haven't touched it in a few months). Helped land a killer new role here in NYC (sticking to my guns as a UI engineer and not touching much JS at all).
Oh wow.. that's so bad.
Can't. Stop. Lol'ing.
Great stuff, Gil! I've been wanting to do something like this for a very, very long time.
A few quick questions if that's ok:
I always strip that from links and it's always annoying. HN doesn't bother with this, not sure why we do.
Works great in Chrome, good enough in Firefox (macOS Sierra) albeit with a small bug in the spherical video:
Masters of Doom from David Kushner.
Amazing I haven't read this yet but just can't put it down.
Masters of Doom is the amazing true story of the Lennon and McCartney of video games: John Carmack and John Romero. Together, they ruled big business. They transformed popular culture. And they provoked a national controversy. More than anything, they lived a unique and rollicking American Dream, escaping the broken homes of their youth to produce the most notoriously successful game franchises in history—Doom and Quake— until the games they made tore them apart.
Pretty great to see such honesty and transparency on something that didn't go quite right. Takes a lot of courage to acknowledge something like that and move on to greater things.
