Eszpee, thank you! My August trip to Budapest was bittersweet as I knew it would be my last for awhile. But I definitely hope to visit again on vacation! And I would be honored to have a fröccs with you. I will be watching to see the excellent way with which you continue to grow things over there. Everyone relies on Read more

James! This read was an epic tour through your growth and contributions here. And that photo of you commandeering the NSFW party is the perfect capstone. (I’m just realizing that the list of times you’ve stood on a table or a chair and made us feel something — remember your NSM presentations? — is long...) Thanks for Read more

Computer technology is on the same path—we're at the inflection point where our devices transition from being objects that are very utilitarian and mechanical into things that we want to integrate into our bodies. I think watches are just the beginning. Read more

I don't know about endgame, but I do like to think about what 'game' the subsites might be starting. The subsites are our first real test of what growing and marketing more niche properties on Kinja could look like. They're showing us in realtime the ease with which we can bring our existing audience to new blogs Read more

Totally. I am thinking about this hard from a process perspective. I'd love to do a better job of drawing out people's ideas and finding places for them to influence or improve our roadmaps. Read more

Yep, the design choices are affecting the user adoption, no doubt. A pristine, essay-like environment attracts thoughtleaders (or whatever other choice words you prefer to describe those users!) who shy away from dissenting conversation. It is very interesting to watch.

I hope we shed bureaucracy while gaining organization. But definitely let me know if you find that's not the case.

I agree it's complex but not irreconcilable. Let's keep the hope alive! Read more

Our users are inside and outside our building. If we're not listening to all of them (inside and outside), then we're not doing our jobs. Read more

Totally agree. Design is a competitive advantage for and a reason to switch to Medium. They've led with it as part of their product philosophy. That hasn't been the case for Kinja. But it should be something we aim to improve going forward. We can do better.

You have a real point here and we should all be more open to seeing it this way.

This is ultimately two rather meaty challenges: (1) brand challenge (2) communication challenge. We're working on solving the (1) brand challenge with an outside agency. That'll get us some better verbal and visual language for (2) communicating to ourselves, our readers, and our business partners what this whole Read more

So rad. Love this as an exploration of different consumption behaviors on Kinja.

Oh my word. Ailey was the only modern choreographer in his day with any soul. And soul that required boundary-breaking athleticism. His company has definitely kept his vision, his work, and his being alive. It all stands for something. And you can feel it.
