JoshWComeau One of the most confusing parts of Flexbox is the difference between “items” and “content”. Why is it “justify-content” and “align-items”, and not the other way around?

blaine @justinschuh @jaffathecake @tomayac @Dieulot @slightlylate The fundamental problem with CORS in my mind isn’t a technical one (it’s an annoying set of protocols, but _fine_), it’s that many of the people who should implement CORS headers in order to enable apps to use data have no incentive to do so, and there’s no way to force them.
