juliefredrickson: markcoatney: John: I’ll start by saying it has been an absolute joy and privilege to be the President of Tumblr these past four years To work alongside these special people, with our intense focus on product, positivity, fun and whimsy — from our small team came what is now a community of over 50… My favorite John story, from the time two years ago when I was wavering on...
I just went through thing where I was using the computer and I used my pointer to select something, except I did not know the computer had froze because the underlying application was in the middle of creating an abominable pop-up ad, then stored my click and used it as it saw fit to, and so that means I just ordered 300 spatulas. I thought about that as it related to the overall UI experience,...

Apple is that most American of American companies in that they fully represent the modern business success story, including the self-granted entitlement to employ straight-up gimmicks in the accounting department for the purpose of tax avoidance. This costs states and countries billions in their legally-entitled taxes, which wouldn’t be such a shitty thing to do if governments were...
Why We Buy
heyitsnoah: The data here is sort of interesting, but I’m not sure I buy the premise: Ask Americans if they are willing to spend more to buy American-made products, and nearly half say they are often willing to do this. But in the latest Economist/YouGov Poll, the country where a product is made trails price, quality, and even convenience, as an important factor in consumer decision-making....

In case you missed it being buried late on Friday, Tumblr’s president stepped down. Great timing! Too bad I can use this little “publish on” feature to write this on Friday and post it Monday 9am. EDIT: Oh, that’s right, Tumblr features don’t work

Bill Ritter just used the phrase “walk of shame” (accurately) during an Eyewitness News promo on prime time television. What?!?!?!?
I just used “Fuck em Joffrey-style!” in an email.

aurora: (previously on “responsive design”) But won’t it add value in the sense that you only need one site, not three optimized for Web, tablet, and mobile? Shouldn’t hurt your SEO either. I would think most organizations and servers do not need separate websites for all those form factors, anyway. Last I checked, mobile Safari worked pretty good with regular websites! Yes, there...
“Dr. David Altchek, the Mets’ team physician, will perform arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to fix the tear” Hope Pineda has the whole arm covered by Lloyd’s of London. He’s gonna end up with a hook there.
Let’s start off with saying that nothing that Joe Muto has done in his quest to be the “Fox Mole” is even remotely justifiable on ethical or civil grounds. We can safely be dismissive of any argument on his behalf that he had a “reason” to do any of this. So, that’s out of the way. Are none of you even slightly sketched out that a private organization was able...
aurora replied to your post: Just figured out something that was previously perplexing How so? Remastered albums - and, to a greater extent, different media format reissues - offer value to consumers but not enough to justify paying full price for something multiple times. For example, I don’t think any Beatles album is worth $50. But I could very well pay that much to own any one of them...

“Responsive web design” = “remastered albums”

I find it amusing that our parents convinced us to despise each other. Two generations ago, we’d all be praying for Lena Dunham if we found her to be so wretched. Now it’s like, “I just watched some dude stab a kid in the throat 45 minutes ago but this bitch is worse.” The other great irony is that all the kids in Occupy Wall Street really couldn’t be concerned with...
seagull: So, this show, Girls. I watched it last night and can’t decide if it’s good or awful. The people look like real people, not actors. Some of the situations seemed so real that it wasn’t fun to watch because who wants to relive that time they hooked up with a skeevy loser dude who cared not a whit for you but who you were head over heels for for no good reason and who had no idea how...
Three Things re: Instagram
yourdp: markrichardson: 2) When you look at photos made with Instagram, you are not looking at images of people or landscapes, you are looking at Instagram. The subject of the photos is incidental. What you see are the filters and the algorithms and, ultimately, the corporation. At least that’s how it feels to me. Though I have parsed the post to reflect only my opinion and not Mark’s...
Julian Green, who briefly worked out of Dogpatch, recalled that the two men were unusually obsessed with design detail. Once, he said, they spent two hours perfecting the rounded corners of the app’s icons. That’s not obsession, that’s called “front end development”. Sometimes it takes two fucking hours to make a rounded corner look half-decent if you are an amateur...
