Thinking about the values I'd run Littlelogs with, if I bring it back as a more broad social network (it used to be a social network for logging progress: http://blog.hellocode.co/post/littlelogs-compared/).

@ashfurrow Hi Ash! At Playgrounds your talk got me interested in promises and these days I'm all-in and love them for everything.

No stress if not, thanks anyway for the priceless info at Playgrounds! It's made my code heeeaps better :)
