@typesend Thanks! And yeah, I've released enough things to know I should ignore the bros on HN and Reddit to keep my sanity. :D @jcampbell_05 @meghafon My experience overall has been good but I do feel I have to prove myself over & over. Could… @javivelasco @okonetchnikov @chrisbiscardi @csswg @markdalgleish @mxstbr Those are subcategories of powerfulness in my book. @okonetchnikov @chrisbiscardi @csswg @markdalgleish @mxstbr If CSS were powerful enough why would you still need CSS in JS? @kahliltweets Congratulations! You just won the Missing The Point award 2017 🏆 @snookca @csswg Not enough, evidently. @squidgemonster For cloudinary please open a plugin request here? @squidgemonster There is already a Markdown plugin! is a cry for help. We at @csswg should pay attention to this and address the issues before it gets worse. @sil @richturn_ms No you are not wrong! I would recommend HTML & CSS book by Jon Duckett
@sil Be sure to pick up a copy of CSS Secrets by @LeaVerou - best web book written in last 5+ years!

I think you're just grumpy, period. @g16n @aardrian @g16n @aardrian Which iOS version? @g16n @aardrian Property was chosen exactly due to RDFa because It has exactly the same meaning in Mavo. @philwalton @svgeesus Perhaps it's specific to the Gmail app? He showed me the Facebook app, which did have a badge. @crystalenka @joovlaki But why?? @philwalton I just looked at @svgeesus' Android phone and it does have notification badges. Are we referring to different things? @philwalton Care to elaborate? Sounds like your experience would be very useful!I’ve been with iPhone since 2009. Considering switching to a Google Pixel. My laptop is still OSX. Any similar experiences? @zdfs @mgiraldo Let me know what you thought!

It would mean it would be trivial to make @mavoweb apps RSS-enabledFinally: RSS in JSON! @raschneiderman now I'll never be able to unsee this...
