I appreciate them covering tech companies for less technical audiences, but it just seems like they follow a few certain VCs around, rather than looking at the technology that is worth GETTING VC funding.
>at the bottom. It's for "prototypes."
Edit: Sorry for flippancy. I sense the challenge of the over-complete demo. Eventually, the design requires interfacing with developers who are then skewered for not getting it done as fast as the drag and drop mock-up.
It's probably not horribly worse than taking on an HTML5 template from your favorite template garden along with a laundry list of breaking customizations... I find it pretty quick to take the static images and build out without the baggage of more opinionated style work already "complete"
-drag n' drop syndrome
-so visually oriented that they might as well be blind
It honestly makes designers look bad. Modern designers know how to code as well (or should). Why? So that they design with the development in mind and don't deliver shit that's too outlandish to implement, or more importantly, deliver shit that's ignorant of what's possible.
