I like that it flips the usual look of bootstrap. Colors and sharp flats instead of grays and depth/shadows. It's not immediately obvious this is a bootstrap layout like with most.

Glossing over those things misses the entire point. Not worth posting without it. The videos mentioned in the parent comment get it so right. Highly recommended.

I had to stop reading when I got to the ridiculous header example. A poorly set up header hierarchy is used to show why the new way is more complicate? The new way is much more flexible when used properly. If it is too technical for some non-technical people, those aren't the people that should be writing HTML.

Google maps/nav was one of the deciding factors for me when moving from the iPhone to a Droid X, and it just keeps getting better.

-----


The fact that the new article and section elements can now have their own header hierarchy doesn't mean we should "use only one heading element (h1...)". The beauty isn't that we don't have to think about the hierarchy anymore but that now each distinct "document" on the page can have it's own h1-hn hierarchy.

-----


Sure, but why would you still want to use the other hn elements? The only reason I see is for subheadings within a hgroup, but I'm not a big fan of that tag.

-----


Well, look at your own article. There's an h2 tag wrapped around each of the subheadings (e.g. "NO MORE H2-H5").

How do you propose content authors mark these up if they don't use an hn tag?

-----


The problem is that the subheading in my articles is really part of the main heading. Without it the heading itself loses meaning. When using the hgroup tag only the main title is considered for the document outline so I'm losing valuable information there. As for the fix, I'd rather split both titles in the h1 tag itself. That way both titles remain 1 whole, even for the document outline.

I've actually found myself moving in the opposite direction of integrating the social media stuffs. Now I visit the sites if I want to check up on things or post something. Requires more effort but that keeps me from wasting too much time with it.

Using virtual currency that you can earn in-game, but also purchase with real money, seems like a great idea. The users don't feel like you're hiding the good stuff behind a paywall, but you still give them a way to pay for it if they want to. I like it and I'm glad to see it could actually work.

Every new version is the first version of whatever makes it a new version.

-----


Or "few". Maybe he meant "couple"?

-----


What is the trailing slash for?

-----


A lot of command-line programs that operate on files take '-' as placeholder for stdin or stdout. For example:

  wget -O - 'http://news.ycombinator.com' | less
The -O option is for specifying an output file, but the '-' says to dump the contents to stdout.

-----


Funny; I always use the curl command for that kind of thing, since it automatically pipes to stdout -- but there's something fun you can do with that, too:

    curl http://example.com/foo.tar.gz | tar zxf -
Tar's input file is "-", which means stdin. This downloads and decompresses a tarball to the current directory, without creating a temporary file that I have to delete later.

-----


Thanks! Always enjoy adding to my command line tool belt.

- = dash not slash
