I wrote a post for CSS-Tricks and people read it

Posted May 13, 2015 in Thoughts


This week, I had a guest post published on CSS-Tricks. You should read it.

It kinda blew up. Well, definitely blew up. What started as legitimate comment thread on the post turned quite sour when the article was shared on r/programming:

Yes, that would be me. I failed FizzBuzz in a job interview and I wrote about it. Whoever he is, “jm_” got a lot of karma for that one. To clarify, that’s Reddit karma, not the nice kind of karma. There’s nothing nice in that thread, and most of that crowd completely missed the point of the article anyway.

But hey, these are bullies*! And a response that huge is actually awesome – there’s a conversation to be had, and the feedback from the audience I care about has been fantastic. Stay tuned.

* The article was also posted on r/webdev and r/web_design – much better conversations over there, and good (I think heavily moderated) discussion on Hacker News.

Pssst...developer note: This is the most basic comment implentation you can possibly imagine, and it's on my list to flesh it out. But...I'm not using Disqus anymore, so that's cool! 👍
