What do you suggest ... again

This was published more than 5 years ago

Attitudes and opinions change and evolve.

You know that feeling you get when you stumble upon something you wrote in the distant past and it's terrible? There are many cringe-worthy bits of immature writing on this website (and I'm probably still creating more).

As well as the mere cringe-worthy, there are also opinions and attitudes expressed that I no longer hold and am, frankly, embarrassed by. (Please don't go looking, they're deliberately hard to find, but left for the sake of posterity.)

I hope if you've stumbled across some here, you'll give me the benefit of the doubt.

More than eight years ago, I created a project called What do you suggest?. It was essentially in interface for exploring the auto-complete suggestions offered when doing a Google search—which are a source of endless fun.

Eight years is, as we all know, an eternity in internet time, and the intervening years had seen something to wrong. Well last night I threw a little time into it and it’s now, kind of, back up and running.

There are a few features missing from this incarnation, like the ability to compare suggestions by location. And the interaction model is quite different, but I still think there’s plenty of fun to be had.

If you find anything fun or interesting, let me know.
