I appreciate it, and you are exactly right. Most governments take anywhere between two to 10 days to even acknowledge a FOIA request. If they are doing anything about social media, then they have to scour through folders of screenshots to find the "record".
This is fantastic - I just sent a prospect a proposal to execute. I had thought about EchoSign but I just didn't want to deal with what looked to be an enterprise-y solution. I just emailed HelloSign support asking if it was possible to copy and paste a link to a document that needs signing so that I can paste that link into my Basecamp messages to my prospects. For now I prepare my Basecamp message and prepare the document for signature and ensure I post the BC message a few seconds ahead of sending the proposal via HelloSign.
Bootstrap in production, especially in early versions of a user facing web app, makes perfect sense. It lets those of us who are great at writing back end try to go to market with a pretty good looking front end.
Very few users will know or care about what CSS framework or guidelines we use. They care about the value that our application provides for them. They just need an easy to use, easy to navigate way to get to what they want that we're offering. If you can afford to bring on a designer to put your own stamp on your application from day one, great. However for many of us, we want to get to a working prototype and then see if we're headed in the right direction before investing in providing a personality to our app.
