    I really enjoy Pocketcasts but I've been wanting to check out Castro as well.

  • Posted to How do you like to organize your large SASS projects?, Feb 12, 2015

    I do roughly what most people here are describing, except I like to structure my SASS files to more or less mirror my view templates (i.e., one stylesheet per template).

    So under modules I might have...

    • nav
    • sidebar
    • stage
    • modals
      • confirm dialog
      • other dialog

    etc

    Just noticing the 'team' section, I'm starting to think that the profession of design is suffering from a serious lack of diversity. Granted, it is a small company but seriously, 100% white and 90% male?

    Not to detract from the quality of the work (grade A stuff), just a side point...

    How do you connect data to visualizations? Do you always start with the data and figure out what story it tells or do you ever start with an idea for a visualization and get the data to make it work?

    I think that makes it all the more interesting--what you choose to capture and how you capture it becomes part of the story. It would be kind of boring if it was the same stuff over 10 years...

  • Posted to Opinions on Jekyll?, Dec 13, 2014

    I've been using Jekyll for my [personal site](www.scottogle.net) since August and I have to say I really, really love it. It's probably the only publishing platform I've ever used that doesn't feel at all restrictive.

    In contrast to what some people have been saying about the difficulty of setting up I found it relatively painless compared to something like WordPress. I'd say I probably only spent about 4 hours building up everything I wanted.

    And +1 for github pages hosting. I'll probably be a paying github customer for life because of that (although you don't have to pay, I just preferred to keep the repo private).

    Fortunately the Chrome was a bag, not a bike, so it wasn't too major of a loss. I'm lucky enough to live in an extremely bike-friendly area so bikes almost always have dedicated lanes and rarely need to ride on the sidewalk. It's a lackluster commuter but an incredible touring/racing bike.

    I ride my Specialized Allez Race to work since there's room to store it in the office (as opposed to locking it up outside). I just use a normal timbuk2 shoulder bag for my laptop but I've been looking at something like a Côte & Ciel. I had a Chrome that I really liked and that was designed from the ground up for riding but unfortunately it was stolen.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Lightweight alternatives to Evernote?, in reply to Theus Falcão , Oct 01, 2014

    I've been watching this one as it does actually look promising. Also interesting that it's being developed on Assembly.

    That's kind of clever. That might encourage me to publish more as well...
