I work at Airbnb doing iOS, and I love it.

I love cohesive design: showing that you care enough to design something amazing from the bottom up is a requirement to really get my attention.

I love little details: I probably sweat the details in everything I do—a true strength and weakness—more than anyone I've ever met.

I don't settle when it comes to The User Experience: users, at the end of the day, are the only ones who matter, so if I'm not unwavering in my determination to create the ultimate User Experience, then I'm not doing my job.

Other than that, I enjoy studying Japanese and whistling like a pro to my favorite songs.

comment Why is it “The King's Speech” but “Le Discours d'un Roi”?
I still don't believe this question is relevant. It's totally a subjective discussion that only the producer of the movie could settle. "King's Speech," "The Speech of a King," "A King's Speech," and "The King's Speech," for example, all sound just fine to me.

comment What is it called when a single word is offset by commas?
Would it be inappropriate at all to use this construct in more formal writing?

comment What is a single word describing a person who opposes another, yet is of equal status to them?
Tough call. I think both @kriegar and @Purplegoldfish had good responses. I feel like maybe rival implies opposition whereas counterpart only implies complete equality. I.e., a counterpart might be completely amicable or on your side.

Thanks, both of you, but these interesting discussions. I wasn't aware that parenthesis meant anything other than the notable punctuation mark.

Are parentheses—the punctuation marks ( and )—considered brackets? If so, is it just coincidence that they share the same word as this term, i.e., a parenthesis marked off by parentheses?

comment Is there a word that means “as its name would suggest?”
Thanks for mentioning the informal use of "well." For the style of writing I tend to do, it seems like the best fit.

@FumbleFingers Interesting word. Out of curiosity, would you provide examples of both of the use cases you mentioned?

comment Words that are pluralized in the middle?
@Cerberus Right, well, it's good to know that there are rules established for things like this. That's some comfort!

comment Words that are pluralized in the middle?
Gah! So many exceptions in this language! This form of pluralization always bothered me, but then again, I am a rather persnickety individual!
