For some reason Askimet has been letting through an increasing amount of comment spam over the last month. It’s not uncommon for me to catch five or six spam comments a day live on the site.
Accordingly, I’ve decided to turn comments off on the site.
I’m not wild about doing this. I think the web is better with open conversation. But comment spam was becoming an annoying chore that was taking up time I could spend doing other things.
What I care about is conversations, and I want to make sure those are still able to happen, so in lieu of comments, I’m inviting people to connect with me on Twitter at @ChrisFerdinandi, or to send me an email. Hopefully that results in rich conversation around some awesome topics.
UMD, or Universal Module Definition, is a simple wrapper around your code that allows it to run both in a browser and on a server (and theoretically, other places, too). While not formally registered, I also added instructions on installing the scripts with NPM, Bower, and Component using the GitHub hook if any of those are your thing.
I’m delighted to announce that I’ve joined Constant Contact as a front-end web developer.
As part of the UX team, I’ll be helping ensure that users have a great experience with our suite of products on devices of all screen sizes and capabilities. I will continue to blog here and contribute to the open source community, and I look forward to sharing what I learn from my talented new coworkers.
