  • last two days — hosted CSS Grid Workshop here in NYC. 9 people including Rachel Andrew, Fantasai, and Jared Wein from Mozilla. Folks from NYTimes and Vimeo, folks who flew in from Spain, Chicago, UK.
   As a group we were rethinking the subgrid spec. 
   Committed to lobby Mozilla & Igalia (who's doing Blink and webkit implementions) to not ship Grid without Subgrid. Which will push it all back 6-8+ months, but we have to. Have to. 
   No Grids Without Subgrids!  
   This weekend just reconfirmed (more so): Grid is going to be huge. And hard for people to learn. Tons of need = Tons of opportunity.
