CSS doesn’t suck - Andy Bell
Another week comes along and with it, another assault on CSS. It’s turning into a bit of a trend—particularly in the JavaScript community—to crap on CSS wherever possible.

Design for internationalization
"Well, it turns out this app wasn’t designed in your language. It was designed in Elvish, then translated into your language. Most people are using the Elvish version, so they don’t know how things look in your language.

Believe it or not, this is what non-English users have to deal with time and time again. Because many apps are only designed with English in mind, some design details can get lost in translation if you’re not careful."

The Original Hacker's Dictionary
"This file, jargon.txt, was maintained on MIT-AI for many years, before being published by Guy Steele and others as the Hacker's Dictionary. Many years after the original book went out of print, Eric Raymond picked it up, updated it and republished it as the New Hacker's Dictionary. Unfortunately, in the process, he essentially destroyed what held it together, in various ways: first, by changing its emphasis from Lisp-based to UNIX-based (blithely ignoring the distinctly anti-UNIX aspects of the LISP culture celebrated in the original); second, by watering down what was otherwise the fairly undiluted record of a single cultural group through this kind of mixing; and third, by adding in all sorts of terms which are "jargon" only in the sense that they're technical. This page, however, is pretty much the original, snarfed from MIT-AI around 1988"

Benefits of a connected design system
"We’re seeing more and more organisations, big and small, empowering design teams to think more systematically. Couple that with the adoption of declarative JavaScript libraries, such as React and Angular, we’re able to unlock new ways to use web components to design, build and maintain interfaces.

This shift in approach is pulling design and engineering disciplines closer together, aligning workflows, and fundamentally changing the way teams communicate with each other."

However, here, we are going to consider a second perspective: that building software is all about managing risk, and that these methodologies are acknowledgements of this fact, and they differ because they have different ideas about which are the most important risks to manage."
