Fränk Klein explains why Bootstrap is a bad fit for WordPress themes—something I repeat often to anyone that listens to me ramble at the Tucson WordPress meetups.

I love web design like this. Both beautiful and useful: footnotes in context so you can read and return without leaving your current place in the text. Two examples—that work in desktop down to mobile—from Upstatement: NPR Code Switch and the newly redesigned Harvard Law Review.

Understanding different cultures is something that surely makes me a richer person, but it also informs my everyday design with a better perception of different people and behaviors.
WordPress Community: Choose Your Own Adventure is an inspiring talk at WordCamp Orange County 2014 by Andrea Middleton. Must watch!
From the “Kindred Spirits” pattern chapter in Apprenticeship Patterns:
Your community’s health can be measured in the way to reacts to new ideas. Does it embrace the idea after vigorous debate and experimentation? Or does it quickly reject the idea and the person who proposed it? Today’s dissident is tomorrow’s leader, and one of the most valuable services you can provide to your community is defending it against those who believe that marching in lockstep is the price of membership.
I love this challenge—it’s got me thinking a lot about how I approach new ideas, both when I bring them to my community or team and when I’m faced with new ideas from other people.
I am sometimes going with the flow in order to be liked and get along with everyone? Do I reject things out of hand because I don’t like the idea or the person? And do I question everything with a healthy dose of dissidence?
