    I’ve been a long term WordPress user but Gutenberg looks like an overkill and with this announcement, I’m excited.

    Imagine Medium’s editor and Slack’s integrations had a beautiful illegitimate lovechild. That’s the vibe we set out to accomplish.

    I don’t know about general sentiment but Medium is a great writing experience and adding Slack like slash commands will only enhance the experience. I have moved my blog a couple of times to Ghost but this may finally be the push I needed.

      I’m Oleg, occasionally I write about Go, would like to add more posts about unpopular algorithms and personal projects.

        Do you mind giving a couple of examples of unpopular algorithms? That just caught my eye and I think learning something new never hurts.

          Glad to here :)

          I was thinking about Johnson’s algorithm, few primes algos(few my own prime sieves), union-find with additional data, well…plenty of them :D

          Well, maybe not all are unpopular, but not that common at least.

        Hi, I’m Ishan and I write anywhere from 2-6 posts a year on my blog https://ishan.co/blog

        I also write about games at times but mostly, it’s useful tips related to issues I face. Mostly centered around PHP, Machine Learning (not yet started), macOS and iOS.

          While I got the context that this is about GNOME, I’m not really sure what the author is talking about. Are their guidelines very complicated that make icons look terrible? How does that affect blender or other apps in screenshots? And how does detail become harmful there?

            Yep, I’m pretty lost wrt. what their actual contention is.
