  17. Honestly, I have no idea why this question got so many responses. The replies were mostly “normal work day” but an uncomfortable number of people responded that they would hate this kind of collaboration, with a strong undercurrent of anti-design sentiment 😱 zachleat/1207726773200412672
  18. So _munter_’s incredible hyperlink plugin just saved me from deploying a broken in-page anchor link to 11ty.dev 🎉 So good. github.com/Munter/hyperlink

  28. I’m trying to find the earliest mention of Element Queries or Container Queries (or this idea in practice, if not name). In the lead right now is joecritch’s very early work in March 2013 github.com/joecritch/container-queries (via innovati). Does anyone have evidence of earlier work?
