WordPress 5.0 and the Gutenberg editor present a perfect opportunity to incorporate new best practices from the WordPress industry in our work. With a more streamlined end-user experience, individual organizations will be empowered to truly make their Largo sites their own. But we're also invested in making the developer experience easier.
"Websites are really simple, but we insist on making them complicated." - Confucius
What we're reading this week
Adam: Rolling Stone has a lengthy oral history of everyone’s favorite website from the 90s including (exclusive!) interviews with a number of the creators.
Ben: Did you know that there are measurable stylistic differences between maps made in different countries? (PDF warning) (Hat tip to Joshua Stevens at NASA for this link)
Dani: Sometimes, journalists misinterpret the statistics part of scientific research, but just as often, the research studies are flawed.
David: It took all summer to read this story, but guess what I finally finished?
Ryan: These absurd GIFs made using the woodblock art of Hokusai were created by artist Atsuki Segawa and are worth taking a moment to puzzle over.
Bert: D'awww, little biochemical bots!
One of my favorites, this classic essay should be dubbed the Entrepreneur's Bible, and rogue corporate-employee-gone-cartoonist Hugh Macleod, is transforming business culture with his daily cartoon.
