That website gives me a headache.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

Quite keen, wanted to come for a few years but various things have always gotten in the way. Have asked the boss :-)

Found it to be completely unreadable.  Clearly I'm too old to be in their target demographic...

@jamesrt something a little amusing about this site this year:

 

P.S. Wondering about the weird background pictures? So we (okay, it was pruby) uhh - for serious, not making this up - trained a machine learning neural net on a bunch of cyberpunk cityscapes, then had it grind up a rather non-trivial amount of GPU cycles cyberpunkify-ing metl's daytime photos of Wellington...

 

The site looks terrible (and have been told that multiple times with prepping a team from work to go) but the fact a neural net made all the background photos is quite neat.

michaelmurfy: The site looks terrible (and have been told that multiple times with prepping a team from work to go) but the fact a neural net made all the background photos is quite neat.

 

Nothing that a filter in GIMP or Photoshop probably couldn't have done...  (Although bonus points for the Geek Factor!)

 

I think my main complaint would actually be the font; my poor old-man eyes can't cope; even with my uber-strong progressive lenses/reading glasses on..

 

Interestingly, the site is quite readable on my phone; better font selection, clearly.
