  1. Being a technical reviewer on something is like "Hey, can you be a weird little pedantic asshole who leaves 'well-actually' comments all over our lovely writing?" Well, I usually try not to — "We'll pay you for it."
  2. Is this something?… 🤷🏻‍♀️ I have eaten the [bag of dicks] that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold
  3. There are situations where it's useful to have inputs (range, radio/checkbox, select) react immediately w/o form submission - but that's an a11y anti-pattern. Button toggles (aria-pressed) can replace many radio/check cases - are there good solutions for the others?
  4. I really appreciate these reminders that CSS role in performance does not boil down to a set of binary 'rules' that override all other concerns — but a contextual weighing of priorities & tradeoffs.

  5. CSS is Rad(ial) (This splash of bright colors brought to you by CSS gradients/blend-modes, and my need for distractions from trans people being the current topic of ~~debate~~ hate.) miriamsuzanne.com/2022/10/21/the-conic/
  6. Sometimes I have a very relaxing weekend. Sometimes I'm productive, whatever that means. And sometimes I do shit like this. Introducing an (excellent? unplayable?) new board game: miriamsuzanne.com/art/roller-of-ephyra/
  7. Hi #aeaden - my slides are online, if you want to follow along, or come back later. Cascading Layers of !Importance. /cc aneventapart slides.oddbird.net/layers/aea-denver22/
  8. So confused why the web fonts for my #aeaden talk seem to be loading fine, but won't render - and it's only an issue in one browser… And then I remembered making this slide… 🤦🏻‍♀️

  9. Really enjoying grigs talk about Imagining a Fluid Future for Design Tools at #AEADEN - It's a hard problem, but the lack of truly responsive design tools is absolutely holding back the web, and needs to be addressed.

  10. Sass color spaces are almost here! A preview: SassCSS/1578526716066402304
  11. I started out knitting this on multiple needles, following a pattern. Didn't like it, so I started over - no pattern, trial & error. After unraveling several times, decided to crochet instead. Its easier to backtrack. I like how this is going much better. About to turn the heel.

  12. I really want a way to load the contents of an iframe at a different default font size / zoom level.

  14. 🥳 Proposal for Sass color spaces! The new CSS is landing in browsers soon, and we plan to be ready: - Define colors in new spaces like oklch & display-p3 - Convert colors between spaces - Mix & manipulate colors in any space - Gamut-map colors for a target space as needed SassCSS/1572693717408153601
  15. I crocheted one (1) slipper sock! My first slipper sock! My best (and also worst) slipper sock! I came up with the pattern, and the weird ribbing. It is designed for one (1) left foot. If my left foot gets cold, I can put it in the sock.

  1. 🎉 The CSS Nesting spec has been approved for publishing as a First Public Working Draft. You can see the current Editor's Draft here: drafts.csswg.org/css-nesting/ (This moves it from a theoretical proposal, to an official work-in-progress module in the CSS spec.)
  2. Large companies find HTML & CSS frustrating “at scale” because the web is a fundamentally anti-capitalist mashup art experiment, designed to give consumers all the power. Sorry I didn’t quote tweet anything in order to say that.
  3. CSS has been *carefully* & *systematically* designed to solve a set of problems so complex no other language even tries. There are no comparisons to make. Meanwhile, the basics *look* so declarative & clear that people don't even think of it as "programming".
  4. RESOLVED, Container Queries are officially in the CSS specification process 🥳 stubbornella/1360016078336757765
  5. npm install no-mouse-days and turn off all mouse access to your project for a day: get the whole team thinking about keyboard access. marcysutton at #smashingconf

  6. Using HTML, but just the div element …is the same as… Using TypeScript, but just the any type …or… Building a complex database, but just use text fields Mandy_Kerr/1301468585525534720
