Nearing a week after launching Hugga 2.0, we’ve worked out most of the bugs and issues.
Yesterday we got the Huggacasts back working, 404s resolved, and will keep making the site even huggier.
Readers are reporting some issues when logging in to comment and creating accounts. We’re checking those and note that there are like 17 ways to get into the site. If one doesn’t work, we’ve got another and Typepad authentication seems the most reliable. If you’re having issues, please contact us.
There are some transitory issues and periodic strangeness you may have seen. We don’t know either, that’s just how it goes on the Interwebs.
The site launched with the work and help of
- Jay Allen – Application Architect, user interface, development
- Scott Benish – Design, problem solving
- Six Apart – Movable Type partner
- Our bloggers – Andrew, Mark, David (new), Galen, Frank, Kellie
Thank you readers for your comments and for reading our blog.
The convo at Hugga HQ went like this:
I think our readers will want to really express that they too are a Bike Hugger with ‘lots of hugga’ style.
No. They’ll want it more subtle.
Fine. One logo then, sheesh.
The brand new bamboo will debut at SXSW this year. This is a sample, but I’m going to wear it around the house. The actual shirts have just one logo and we’ve got womens too.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is sponsoring a design-a-rack contest, following the New York’s CityRacks competition last year. We’ve blogged about designer racks before and often wonder why they’re either after thoughts attached to a building, brutalist, or nonfunctioning.
A fav is this bike bench
also see David Byrne’s art racks
and secure bike racks built for cities with thieves. There’s one with a pump in it as well.
What good racks have you seen or what would you design?
A Northwest cycling tradition marked the beginning of the season on Sunday, as more than 3,500 people rode around Bainbridge Island for the 2009 installment of Chilly Hilly.
Though I wasn’t out getting wet with all the other hard-core folk out there, I was happy (and warm) keeping up via Cascade’s twitter feed and following the many photos.
And so we officially kick off this year’s line-up of Cascade’s events. Clip in, folks.
