    This looks awesome - but the videos (I'm assuming there are videos?) don't play for me, so it's all just an image of a person smiling nicely. I stared at it for ages thinking "Does just eye contact and a smile mean "I am"?

    It's a nice pen, maybe I guess for a gift for someone you don't know very well...

    "Shorter than the average pen, longer than the average pocket pen, allowing you to use it at home, work, or on-the-go."

    This is the kind of tongue-in-cheek content I would write expecting a product owner to switch it out for something that actually means something...

    This is great. This is going straight into my list of articles to send to people who ask me 'how do I get into design?' I think if you can nail the basics (hierarchy, rhythm, typography, white space, the grid) then everything else kinda falls into place.

    How do you keep them both up to date? What's the process if you need to update an element?

    Great idea, but fails on the execution. I actually don't understand it much better when they replace every second noun with 'shit'.

    Damn... yet another time I want to buy an industry t-shirt but there's no women's option.

    I'd love some way to learn from this game - as in, if I get it wrong, tell me some information about how to get it right next time - like 'hint: higher numbers equal darker colours', for example.

    It's a visualisation of the brain's complex and beautiful network of connections - and being on Github it's also a demonstration of someone's awesome js skills ;)

    Looks like they're moving their focus more heavily onto articles/'news'. I'd be more likely to browse around the new design over the old one - the article titles are so much clearer. It's definitely got a clearer focus than the old design which was pretty messy and undefined.

    But what's it meant to do?
