How are Republicans winning *anything*? I do not understand the people in this country. We should be seeing solid blue.

Super excited. Today I get to do one of my *favorite* things: participate in a “design stretch” led by Samantha Warren. The ideas we generate at these events shape so much of how we talk and collaborate over the months (and sometimes years) following the stretch: theblog.adobe.com/design-stret

@vasilis Yeah! I like these thoughts. I’ve often wondered what the verbal equivalent of typography might be (tone, pitch, etc. — vocal arts must contain parallels). And I had a conversation at Adobe recently about identifying and minimizing extraneous content. Between this stuff and making semantics a more primary part of design tools, I think we’re onto something.

@vasilis Thanks. I’ll read your post.

Right now I’m just wondering how experiencing websites might be different than reading an offline document. So many documents contain headings… I mean, what can be different to make things better?

I’m so tired of sensationalist anti-Apple “news”. This company is a beacon of hope for humans, and solid proof that caring about user experiences makes for a profitable business.

@vasilis Wow. So like, confused about the structure of the text? I’m imagining a reference site with headings and subheadings in the content. Is that confusing? Or is it when headings elements are used in not-main-content content?

@elliotjaystocks I used this for office hours in September and it worked like a charm.

@hankchizljaw Oh, oops! I misunderstood. But thanks for sharing it. 😄

@brianwarren Sorry for your loss, Brian. Rest sounds like a fine idea.

@hankchizljaw Andy, you make such fun, creative, useful stuff! Thanks for being so cool, always trying to help people out. 👍💯

@vasilis I’m curious to know more about what you learn here, and why you asked.

Keynote is such a great piece of software. I love Apple.
