Had coffee and a good chat with a talented young UX/UI designer who recently moved to Lewes from Ukraine:
If you know of a UK-based opening for a junior role, let her know!

Pointing out the lack of mask-wearing in photos of concerts, weddings, dinners, and other happy events has a bit of an “all lives matter” vibe to it—technically correct, but dickish.
Just point out a fact. People get mad about that.

Talking about style
I’ve published a transcription of the talk I gave at CSS Day:
The title is intended to have double meaning. The obvious reference is that CSS is about styling web pages. But the talk also covers some long-term trends looking at ideas that have appear, disappear, and reappear over time. Hence, style as in trends and fashion.
There are some hyperlinks in the transcript but I also published a list of links if you’re interested in diving deeper into some of the topics mentioned in the talk.
I also published the slides but, as usual, they don’t make much sense out of context. They’re on Noti.st too.
I made an audio recording for your huffduffing pleasure.
There are two videos of this talk. On Vimeo, there’s the version I pre-recorded for An Event Apart online. On YouTube, there’s the recording from CSS Day.
It’s kind of interesting to compare the two (well, interesting to me, anyway). The pre-recorded version feels like a documentary. The live version has more a different vibe and it obviously has more audience interaction. I think my style of delivery suits a live audience best.
I invite you to read, watch, or listen to In And Out Of Style, whichever you prefer.

I’ve still got some polyfills in place for IE11 on The Session, but I’d be happy to see ABCJS ditch its polyfills if it makes for a lighter payload.
(Or let me know what the polyfills are and I could add them in myself.)

Here’s how to use the new
:has selector in @TailwindCSS. This also shows how you can use older pseudo-classes like
:nth-of-type in Tailwind (and it applies to using the adjacent sibling selector too):
Right‽ @TheUniverse has such a great writing style!
