  1. devMode.fm // CSS & CMS Musings with Eric Meyer

    On this episode we have on the CSS legend Eric Meyer to talk about the early days of CSS, and how it almost died, and also onto where CSS is today. We discuss utility-first CSS, CSS in JavaScript, and talk about the Flexbox and the awesomeness that is CSS Grid.

    We then also talk about the move of…

  2. My Recode Decode Interview with Kara Swisher | Matt Mullenweg

    “We want to make the best tools in the world, and we want to do it for decades to come. I’ve been doing WordPress for 15 years, I want to do it the rest of my life.”

    The last time I chatted with Kara was in 2013 in the back of a pedicab in Austin. This time I got to sit in the red chair at Vox headquarters in San Francisco, and per usual Kara was thoughtful, thorough and to the point: we talked about WordPress and the future of the open web, the moral imperative of user privacy, and how it all relates to what’s going on at Facebook.

    (As it turns out, Facebook also is turning off the ability for WordPress sites — and all websites — to post directly to users’ profile pages. The decision to shut down the API is ostensibly to fight propaganda and misinformation on the platform, but I think it’s a big step back for their embrace of the open web. I hope they change their minds.)

    Kara and I also talked about distributed work, Automattic’s acquisition of Atavist and Longreads, and why every tech company should have an editorial team. Thanks again to Kara and the Recode team for having me.

  5. 015: Going The Distance with Rachel Andrew – User Defenders : UX Design Podcast

    Rachel Andrew inspires us to understand people who are not like us because most often the products we design are not for us. She motivates us with her successful habit of GTD (Getting Things Done). She teaches us that solid attention to detail and ability to execute can be more important than specific technical skills. She also proves to us that experience never gets old.

    Rachel Andrew is a Web Pioneer and the Managing Director and founder of UK-based web development company EdgeOfMySeat.com. She’s a prolific author of a number of Web Development books including her most recent A Book Apart published “Getting Ready for CSS Grid Layout”. She’s also an active speaker who has spoken at a number of notable web conferences. When she’s not writing code, or writing about writing code…she’s a taxi to teenagers and quite a fitness buff.

    THEME

    Solid attention to detail and ability to execute can be more important than specific technical skills. Knowing how to break a problem down, design a solution, and coordinate with stakeholders is more important than mastering any one tool or platform.

    TAKEAWAYS

    Many of the most valuable skills we have today are the result of accidental or unplanned career moves. Today, you may be trying to figure out how to do something for your own use. Tomorrow someone else will hire you for that same skill. In our industry, long term planning is tough, so grab the challenges at hand, build good solutions and products, and see where it takes you.

    AWKWARD TESTING STORY

    Nothing huge, but working with users across Europe, language has sometimes been a barrier. One time a user got angry because we were asking about her mental model. She thought we were CALLING her a mental model!

    DESIGN SUPERPOWER

    I’ve been doing this for a long time! My experience allows me to draw on a lot of past projects when I’m approaching a new one.

    DESIGN KRYPTONITE

    Stuff moving around on a page in my peripheral vision is a major pet peeve.

    HOW DO YOU FIGHT FOR YOUR USERS?

    On my own product Perch CMS, I always think about “forgotten users”–the content editors who actually have to use our product day to day after a company buys it. I spend a lot of time making sure that the product looks good not only to the person who may decide to buy it, but also the regular daily users who spend a lot of time there.

    FUTURE OF UX

    We are finally moving beyond a design approach primarily oriented to replicating the print experience online. True web layouts and approaches are here. We’ll have to take into account not only many devices but many mediums (audio, touch, visual).

    HABIT OF SUCCESS

    I’m a big believer in the “GTD” approach (Getting Things Done). I make lists, organize things, and work hard to check things off. You have to know how you work best yourself to get through the not so fun and more mundane stuff.

    BEST ADVICE

    Try to understand people who are not like you. We often work in a design bubble, but the majority of our audience for most products is outside that universe of specialists.
