  1. Text Display

    (On chrome, 100% zoom, HD monitor) In the standard font, there is no gap between the dot and rest of the letter 'i', making it look like 'l'. This makes it much harder to quickly read through text. Zooming in for example fixes this, but why should the user have to do that?

  3. Page display issue

    On the completion page of your newsletter signup, your download link buttons display with 0 margin (Chrome v50), so they are right on top of each other. My guess, based on the styling of the bottom button, is that they originally displayed side by side (the mobi download links has an element style with a left-margin attached to it, which is causing it to display out of alignment with the button above it).

    Suggested Fix:
    CSS
    .btn-primary {margin-bottom: 1em;}

    and remove the left-margin inline style for the mobi download button.

  4. Career quiz: Qualify what "good at math" means

    It seems that the way people answer this question may reflect their education backgrounds, gendered /racial social conditioning etc. more than any genuine ability to learn math/science/logic. For instance, its pretty established within psychological literature that men tend to be more confident in their abilities to perform tasks than women (http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/edu/86/1/114/) and that people in general tend to be overconfident about their ability to perform tasks.

    I think it would be helpful to add a small qualifier either explaining what "good at math, science and logic" means, or providing some metric with which to gauge one's past ability…

  5. Automation

    Automation of professions seems like a big thing. You have one blog post covering it well, but otherwise, the implications don't seem fully integrated into your advice. Most recommended earning to give paths appear affected. More attention seems due on this topic.

  8. Please add a wider variety of careers.

    Would prefer more breadth than depth, if you don't have the resources for both. Include international careers like Humanitarian Aid, International Organizations, International Development Banks, International NGOs. Include career starters like Peace Corps, Americorps, Teach for America, etc. (and you can discuss the problematic aspects of those programs too). Government bureaucracy, different types of journalism, advocacy, community organizing, direct action and activism. Prison reform, school reform, teaching. CSR, sustainable business practice, sustainable building, various sciences related to environmental preservation, agricultural science. There are a ton of careers out there even within a very narrow definition of social impact. If you…

  9. Please modify or delete the heading that appears every time you move up when reading a blog post.

    Perhaps most people don't read like me, but I often move up to re-read something etc, and it's annoying to have that appear each time.

  10. Career suggestion: patent attorney

    Patent attorneys are well paid (6 figure salaries possible after qualification with 5+ years' experience: http://www.insidecareers.co.uk/career-advice/patent-attorney-salaries/) and the profession is not that well known amongst STEM graduates. It's a possibility for someone who has a technical background but doesn't want to go into a strictly quantitative profession. There is good potential for earning to give.

  11. Get annotate-able texts!

    So you have so many inspiring things on here. People want to comment, ask questions and interact with the text. Furthermore it would be possible to open up the texts meta-level which allows more mind broadening.
