PayPal Ban

We got banned from PayPal after 12 years of business (updated)

Update: PayPal restored our account, and they were as descriptive as when banning us. This was after a call and tweet confirming the "final decision". We're appreciative nonetheless. :) PayPal unban Original post continues below You'd think that being a legitimate online business, having 12 years of history with PayPal, and hundreds of thousands of dollars processed, you'd gain some…

Design. Technology. Cool shit.

Last week I traveled to Amsterdam to attend FITC conference 2019. I got inspired both by the city and the conference, and want to share some themes I encountered there. As a note, I’d like to mention this was the 12th year of FITC in Amsterdam, a smaller version of the original conference from Toronto, and many participants came for…

World Usability Congress 2018

In the middle of October, I went to Graz to attend World Usability Congress. This conference first started 10 years ago and even though it’s not a huge one (around 450 attendees), it attracts designers, managers and product owners from all over the world. It was my first time there and I’m pleased to say that it’s organized with love,…

The Niteo Handbook update – less bloat, more information

Documentation naturally grows with the company. But if you’re not careful it can quickly become bloated and unnecessary detailed. This happened to us this year.

We’ve removed a lot of unnecessary docs, especially…

Conference hiatus is over

Back in the day when Niteo was still a consulting company I had to do a lot of traveling to find and do work. And to attend conferences. I loved to go to conferences. But being away so much, in boring hotel rooms and eating out every day took a toll on my (mental) health so I decided I needed a…

Thailand was a blast!

It’s January — time for the “IRL”, our biannual in-person get-together. Summer IRLs happen in (around) Slovenia since that means short travel for the majority of the team plus it’s hard to find a more beautiful place in those early summer months. That said, come winter, Europe gets, well, uncomfortably cold.  And most of us want to escape somewhere warm.…
