Comment on Color Sorting Grains video

I have these vivid memories of those old Coke machines with the tiny bottles for a nickel. They are so expensive now, it is just a reminder.

Content Sources, Local viewers and editors, Boxes and Layouts, Internet and Human Purpose

Nate, Thanks for treating this seriously. Rather than “redesign our website” which often entails long discussions and personal likes and dislikes. Focus on “text”, “images”, “videos”, “tables”, “sharing with attachments and messages”, “schedules” and other content specific editors, viewers, tools and layouts.

Pet peeves – Wikipedia, sites, videos, classes, universities, schools – talking about things that could easily be shared for real
