Tinned Fruit Missives November 2017
The Web Began Dying in 2014, Here’s How - André Staltz
A timely warning not to take the open web of the early 21st Century for granted. If you’re still thinking about the web as the ideal level-playing field for entrepreneurial businesses, this article will rapidly challenge your convictions, and reminds us that we’re all living in the shadow of the tech giants.
Rebuilding slack.com - Mina Markham
A pleasing case study on rebuilding Slack’s marketing site for accessibility, and to take advantage of modern layout approaches. The key takeaway for me, though, is that decoupling your marketing site and web application is a worthy exercise. They serve different purposes, and diluting your approach to work for both rarely gives any benefit.
