I was working on a problem recently where I needed to extend the type of a standard HTML element.
It was an interesting problem and I hope to write about it soon (if only so I don’t forget how to solve it in the future). Along the way, however, I asked a few people to take a look at what I was working on and I didn’t get much response. A little later, a few folks replied that I could get more responses more quickly if I took a little extra effort.1
It was a good reminder of a lesson I’d learned in the past and clearly needed to remember: when asking for help, make it as easy as possible for the other person to help.
Thanks for the reminder!
