    Hey, thanks for the thoughtful feedback! I think I agree with you about people taking in dates as a whole rather than reading number by number, but that doesn't mean you're not backtracking mentally to put the day inside the month (unless you are, like you said, focused on day-to-day). Obviously a lot of this is subjective!

    Anyway, even if people take the date in as a whole, I don't think that's reason enough to stop trying to make things better. I'm not surprised that a lot of the feedback here has been "if it aint broke..." but I do wish people were more open to questioning conventions.

    Really glad you enjoyed the article and the design! Thanks for the feedback :)
