    Have not heard the term before but can absolutely get behind the idea. One thing that comes to mind that I love is how Notion gives you these little visual preview when adding a new content block.

    Totally not in-your-face or invasive, but effectively shows you what the content block you're about to add will look like. It's onboarding that feels like it's part of the product.

    I think you misunderstood the article. It wasn't talking about hiring freelancers, it was about hiring someone for a full time position, but the person's experience is predominantly freelance work.

    My bad, didn't notice your comment, but Louie basically nailed it. tonymacx86 is the go-to place for everything you need to get started, from parts lists to build guides to a very active forum of people happy to help should you run into any issues (which you probably will lol)

    As far as monitors go, I've found that LG and Dell ere are the best manufacturers for design-friendly monitor. Not going to include the LG Ultrafine 5K here because it's expensive as shit.

    4K Dell U2718Q Dell P2715Q LG 27UD59P-B LG 27UD58(or 68, P or W)

    1440p Dell U2715H Dell U2717D

    I personally own a Dell U2718Q. Hope this helps! :)

    I'd highly recommend building your own PC. It's honestly not as hard as people think, incredibly rewarding when you're done, and really affordable. Shoot me a message if you're interested. I'd be happy to point you in the right direction. I can also recommend some monitors that are just as good as the 5K iMac. There's heaps of resources out there and you can learn everything you need to in about a day.

    I use Sketch 90% of the time so I don't have much of a choice but to use apple, but instead of paying the premium, I build my own PC and install Mac OS on it (it's called a "hackintosh" and I get the best of both worlds. My PC has better specs than the top of the range Mac for about half the price, and lasts twice as long before requiring an upgrade. Oh, and you can upgrade it piece by piece, rather than purchasing an entirely new machine.

    Lol I'm in the exact same boat. Was told my Spotify that the only way to change my username is to delete my account (and lose my library) then create a new one.
