All notes

Friends that you haven’t seen in many years that when you do it feels like time hasn’t passed at all.

Working on another shortcut to upload posts with images to my site from Bear. 🙃

I want to remove all frictions to quickly share either from my iPad, phone or computer.

I wanted to finish a presentation for a progress call I had today.

But the baby had other plans. Instead, I showed my canvas and talked about the reasons behind the versions. They were very interested. We end up using parts of an old version in the new one. 🙌

People that can’t take or make jokes on themselves live a pretty sad life.

Many say that they don’t like meetings but they keep scheduling them. They think is a way to “work” but most of the time is the opposite.

Some get ideas while talking but is not an excuse to not do your job. Either learn to write well or show up prepared to have a short call.

If English is not your first launguage — have you ever considered using it on Twitter?

Why you are not using it yet?

I struggle with this for some time. Mixing isn’t good for readers.

I wish Twitter had an option like Facebook pages, adding the other language version of the tweet.

I end up creating another account @ramiroruiz_ES and I use a shortcut to speed things up and tweet in both.

How common is that when you’re ready, have time and are constantly looking for “X”, nothing happens.

Then all of the sudden, you receive everything at once. 🙃

@ramiroruiz @rosiesherry Hey there Ramiro. Which part are thinking might be time-consuming, building the company or ensuring it's community-led?

I'm a mom too and can relate. It helps that our co-founders are quick to iterate on what works/doesn't. At early stage, "action" is quite slow too

Initiating, I’m by myself in this project and I’m not sure if the time I need to build a solid data base that would be attractive to the community be worth it.

Happy to being proven wrong. But my model doesn’t expect to charge people from the community.

Design advice that stuck with me. It’s easier to critique than create. Lately I’ve been feeling extra critique-y in some areas. Whenever I notice this I remind myself that I need to do the extra work to propose a solution instead of just point out the problems

True, and also is easier to edit than creating the first version.

Sometimes it may feel like the reviewer is way better but is actually not the hardest part.

At my wife’s new job they use Skype and WhatsApp groups for their communication.🤦🏻‍♂️

She’s not happy at all about that, and my teasing is not helping 😅

Reminder to all fellow designers.

You’re not a design tool operator.

Who is exploring building companies with a real community mindset?

I see so many companies breaking internally — surely community starts from within?

I'd love to chat, explore, mingle, collaborate.

I am ✋but I haven’t really started yet.

To be honest I’m somewhat afraid how time consuming it will be until I can make any kind of remuneration. And as a father. I try to be careful with how I spend my free time.

I've been thinking of sharing my thoughts about the term "designing in the browser" and why I think it should be called "tweaking in the browser" instead.

Would you be interested in such an article?

Yeah, I remember when that term started to come up. The first person I saw it mentioned was @Malarkey

I use to do that back then, not anymore. Big coincidence that yesterday I publish a post talking about that and other past processes I used. https://t.co/uQ1EQ7qfdm

TIL Control and D acts as a forward delete on the iPad Magic Keyboard.

> Couple months ago, worse thing for me is that I was stuck in the “Figma (design) phase” thankfully I recently changed my approach and shipped an MVP version and I’m still tweaking it but I’m more happy now.

Thank you!

And yes 100% recommend https://t.co/Dfx5HX2MH6. It is very straightforward, and I certainly don’t need a lot. Is just to satisfy my curiosity from time to time.

I have no words for what happened today at the soccer game in Queretaro. Is very concerning that most fan groups in the country have people capable of this kind of violence.

Authorities need to take action. We should have family environments in the stadiums.
