As I said on HN: It’s hard to take these kind of posts seriously when Reddit mobile site is one of the worst performing SPAs I’ve ever used.
I want to know why they chose that unreadable font in the editor screenshot.
I haven’t been able to figure it out myself, but for some reason H&Co’s Operator has become pretty popular with developers. There’ve been a couple blog posts about it in the past. The only one I can remember is Kenneth Reitz’s.
Not sure if I’d get on with Operator - or, more to the point, whether I could ever justify splurging $200 on it - but I really enjoyed the “making-of” video. It’s a lovely thing to see anyone quietly but devotedly giving as much of a shit about anything as the people working on that font clearly do about typography. An unexpected pleasure, thanks for linking.
“Much like an Hermès Edition Apple Watch, it is an entirely unnecessary expense that may bring great subjective joy to your life.”
So, you’re a pretentious dolt?
“P.S. This blog post was written entirely with pen and ink—surprisingly fun.”
I guess a typewriter wasn’t hipster-cool enough.
If you use it for a while it becomes perfectly readable to you.
