What we're reading this week
Ben: Version numbers should be Breaking.Feature.Fix, not Major.Minor.Patch.
David: Photon is effectively Bootstrap for Electron-based desktop apps: It’s the missing link for rapidly integrating common user interface patterns into your HTML5 app.
Jack: Climate change is global, so why shouldn’t journalism about climate change be global too? And maybe even build a new model of republishing with several dozen newsrooms around the world.
Kaeti: Finding better color palettes for data visualization.
Ryan: Elon Musk recently announced plans to host a Hyperloop competition next year at SpaceX headquarters in which competitors are to arrive with fully-functional, half-scale "fifth mode" transportation prototypes for a demo on SpaceX’s test track. Development of this speed-of-sound mass transportation system is well underway with over 300 teams around the world submitting design plans. (h/t ThomasJThoren)
Bert: No thanks.
BE OUR GUEST
This week's guest contributor
Our guest this week is Jonathan Stegall (@jonathanstegall), user experience engineer at MinnPost:
I've been writing CSS for more than a decade, and I usually think I know how to float items next to each other. But I spent more time than I'm comfortable admitting wondering why Chrome wouldn't float two fieldsets next to each other at 50 percent width, and then I ran into this. Min-width to the rescue.
