    And really at the end of the day...it doesn't impact me. I don't rely on the release of a tool for my work. This will end up being something I test out on a dummy project. If it has merit I'll consider the team using it.

    I appreciate your passion. But I can empathize with their struggles, and considering that it's a free service I can be understanding of the delay. To me the longterm result is what matters. Having firsthand experience with releasing software I can understand that delays happen when hiccups occur. I appreciate your comment to my opinion.

    Well written. Great article Lauren. It’s also worth considering why blog posts are written? For the average site it’s for ad revenue, and marketing. Webflow for example peppered this article with unobtrusive advertisement about their software. If the attention span is so brief for a single article...putting other content in the face of the visitor to keep them looking...is maybe an effective strategy? More impressions? Bad UX, but meeting business targets.

    It is sad how short a person’s attention span is, and that so few even bother reading through to the end in order to share it. I do like the tech behind sharing quotes from Medium. BUT a quote shared can lack context. And I wonder what the average is on those that like a quote from Medium, that they see shared on social media, and those that click the article to understand the context.

    I love when blogs provide short and long versions of posts. A well-written summary to understand the article on a whole, and toggle to read the full detail.

    Again. Good article.

    Check for email updates? They sent out an email a couple of weeks ago explaining the delay. They were expecting far fewer initial invites to access. The plan was for all early access requests to be fulfilled by end of January. Access requests were double the expected volume. I'd personally prefer a staggered, and delayed release over one that results in lag, and crashes due to unexpected high volume.

    Apple Workout and Strava would be my choices. Clean simple UI.

    I feel you might be able to use Faker to supply some of Craft's functionality.

    Concepts are cyclical. Often there is a reason they never come to fruition.

    No love for the southeast US? Orlando? Atlanta? Miami? Design companies don't seem realize we have three large art colleges in the area (SCAD, Ringling, Miami International University of Art & Design), and all have illustration / prototyping classwork. And the tech scene is hopping in the Tampa Bay area. We have MalwareBytes, Microsoft, Brave People, etc.

    Stephen consider taking a trip to paradise?

    What an interesting read. Unique problems, and I find the design work appealing. Some talented creatives working in less than ideal situations.
