      For reading on a Kindle I like Bookerly specifically designed by Amazon for their readers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bookerly What I like about it is just how much more readable it is over a traditional font like Georgia. It still has …

      My favorite podcast right now is the Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher: https://www.recode.net/recode-decode-podcast-kara-swisher The kind of questions she asks of her guests sometimes make me cringe and that is a good thing! It makes me …

      Square aspect ratio is best for universal sharing like on Twitter. Most aspect ratios on Cake will look good except for the panoramas. For the phone it is better to use portrait 2x3, but for the desktop - landscape 3x2 ratio. So it really depends …

      These are great suggestions, apm! 💡 Let me run these by the team when they come back from the holidays. I’ll post an update once we talk this over. 😉

      Well... I finally had some time to watch the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. I've never before spotted an easter egg in the movie from a first viewing, but this one jumped at me like a flashlight in cave. In the last scene of the Hotel Artemis …

      Bill Gates has a great and entertaining video of the 5 best reads of 2018 for the holidays: https://youtu.be/VldJrHVNHF8 One of them Bad Blood by John Carreyrou I already finished listening to on Audible. It was damn fascinating and cautionary …

      We are going to explore the idea of grouping posts together that are from the same conversation and make all of this collapsible. We'll start with the design first and if that goes well we'll add it to the to-do list for the development. Again …

      This is a really interesting suggestion, Shewmaker. Thank you for bringing it up! Let me try to rephrase the problem and propose a possible solution. Problem: When looking at someone's profile you are seeing a bunch of posts from the same …

      Based on your feedback and after some internal prototyping we now have a solution. We've decided to combine all conversation feeds (For You, Following, Featured and All) under a single tab. This makes it much easier to switch between conversation …

      Great insight, apm! We picked a 🙂 "smile" reaction and put it upfront to help in choice paralysis. We played around with having the 🤔 "thinking" reaction as our default since it is being used often as well. As for elevating "frequently used" …

      It means that a post made you think about it, or you need more time to think about it. On desktop you can hover over any reaction and the tooltip will show up with describing its meaning:

      Thank your for sharing the link to emojis and their meaning! For me personally it is interesting to see how different cultures interpret the same emojis with different meaning. We here at Cake thought and fought over each and every reaction …

      Came across an article in Fortune about a startup Coinmine that is coming out with this beautiful coin mining device. Even though it is too underpowered to mine Bitcoin, it can currently mine other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Ethereum Classic …

      To add to what @Chris said. Here is a diagram of the steps that the people you are inviting to the panel need to go through: 1. Get an email with an invitation. 2. View the panel conversation. Click the button in the email to see the panel and …

      I watched a trailer for the Hotel Artemis, but it left me feeling meh about the story. I blame the trailer 😉. However based on your recommendation, I will check it out. It reminds me a bit of John Wick, which I loved. Too bad if it only grossed 7M …

      Mark, we've just released a solution that would make this experience better. Pressing on the "Follow" button now shows a quick confirmation that disappears after a few seconds and the entire box goes away. So if you are following a conversation …

      We don't have an algorithm for picking conversations to be featured. At the moment we are manually featuring conversations that we think are either interesting or show the potential of Cake for newcomers. We used to just show an "All" feed for …
