I am a web developer based in London. I used to be a UX designer, but those days are long behind me.

comment Is it ok for a mobile site to be a limited subset of the full site?
@dutraveller - this post is two years old, and I haven't even touched UX work in about as long. I don't have any opinion either way any more.

comment Behaviour of a user diary with both general patterns and specific entries
This was an obscure project two years ago for a piece of software that no longer exists at a company I no longer work for. It's probably a little late for this advice.

comment What is the best convention to add css class(es) to a HTML element?
@obelia - I totally agree that class names like 'display: inline' are pretty pointless, but I'm not sure I agree that the solution is totally 'non-concrete' classes. Classes need to be memorable if there are to be reused, and that means talking about specific, if repeated, visual abstractions ('brand-color' is a great example of this - it's specific, yet not reified).

comment What is the best convention to add css class(es) to a HTML element?
@obelia - surely, using descriptive, reusable, specific and memorable classes that encapsulate simple visual abstractions is much better for rapid development than the typical 'semantic' CSS that binds styles to specific components and requires bugs to be fixed across scattered, repeated implementations of the same visual effects? Maybe we should find an example of what we'd see as 'good' CSS so we can discuss something in more concrete terms.
