Their metric is engagement. The metric they sell advertiser is engagement. The metric they sell shareholders is engagement (and ad revenue, which is the same thing).
The metric is not your satisfaction or happiness.
Perhaps what most teens are suffering isn’t depression, but disappointment?
It’s kinda implied a couple times but you should probably add this somewhere obvious:
It’s been a few months since I used it, but coming up with a template and feeding it with a (json) data file __alomst__ made producing emails a joy ;)
Kudos. Thanks for sharing.
However, it feels as if the title is misleading, if not a disservice. That is, a framework is not a language. Perhaps, as eluded to in the article, you can replace Languages with Technologies? Or at least use Languages & Frameworks? We all skim to much and don’t read enough. Titles matter.
Perhaps instead of handoffs — which seems to imply some sort of wall between the disciplines — these issues could revolve around (ongoing) conversations? That is, many of these are as much design as they are dev.
It’s simple. Communication requires a sender AND and an attentive receiver. Social Media presents itself as having both but more often than not it does not. Which raises the question: Is it really “social”?
One to one or group messaging is more communication-centric. And we are, ultimately…

Take for example, Pinterest. Each pin has a Description. The character limit is…
To Eric Elliott’s point: You can do PWA today. You can do PWA tomorrow. But you will eventually end up doing PWA.
It’s really boils down to trends. The native app market is on average, dead in the water. On the other hand, the PWA market looks like blue skies with no limits in sight (or is it site? hehe).
#SpotOn. This #truth is too often forgotten in WPO discussion.
Frankly, it would be nice to see browsers “pre-cache” more popular frameworks and such. The fact that we’re still independently too often reinventing the exact same wheel, over and over and over again, is mindboggling. The irony is, it leads to worse UX, not a better on.
