About

We can't stop talking about design and front-end development, we write and tweet but we need another outlet for our possibly unhealthy obsession (read: passion). We want to talk to some of the smartest people out there and simplify some of the things we don't understand (like JavaScript MVC apps and hoisting and why we dropped out of school).
