Since we launched V2 the feedback has been amazingly positive. The only complaint we heard was that some images were TOO big. Well I'm happy to say that we just released an awesome new feature to help —

Resize giant images on :ello: by just clicking on them!

I love this approach. Most places on the internet would rather show you a tiny image and then let you open it in some sort of lightbox or modal. While it is a minor example, this is manipulating your stream. We will never do that. So we show you the original image in all its glory, and if you're on a smaller monitor and want to see it all at once, just give it a click.

PS. We also just made :ello: a hell of a lot faster.

Interesting new :ello: feature. Click on big images to make them smaller. Smart.

    "Slavoj Žižek doesn't buy into political correctness. In fact, it frightens him. The famed philosopher and social critic describes political correctness as a tacit form of totalitarianism, an act of coercion built upon the premise that 'I know better than you what you really want.' This isn't to say that people should be allowed to go around treating others poorly, but Žižek argues that employing coercion and scare tactics to instill a state of forced behavior completely missed the point. To Žižek, the kinds of obscenity targeted by political correctness are much more effective at breeding a sense of shared solidarity than most alternatives."
