Not to put too fine a point on it, though this week, we challenge you to show us what “angular” means to you.

After an existential crisis and a stint working as an apprentice brewer, Xiao Yu realized he rather enjoyed working with bits as long as there was a purpose. He now wrangles data at Automattic in hopes of making the internet a better & more democratic place. He still enjoys brewing beer and attempts to run up mountains in his spare time.

This photograph was taken in Vancouver, Canada, on a sunny day. I was in an area of the city populated by random high-rise buildings. I found that standing right under a high-rise — and looking directly up — made the view much more interesting.

Repeating patterns that once seemed boring aligned to form another shape with more depth. The high-rise completely grabbed my attention when viewed from this angle.

What does angular mean to you? It might mean the corner on which you live or the intersection of sea and sky at a 180 degree angle. Angular also offers a chance to shoot from an entirely new perspective: from above, below, or even from the margins of the fray. Above all, have fun!

  1. After reading a message by Krista that https and target=blank statements prevent wordpress sending automatic pingbacks I combined an entry with the right HTML scripts. And here it Pingbacks do not work still. What worries me is that, since I am on wordpress, everything worked smoothly till two weeks ago. I use the internal editor (that generates WordPress its own scripts) and all of a sudden: bang. nothing. I get terribly frustrated and consider dropping out of WPC altogether, it is not worth the hassle any more.


    1. Hi Chris, we’ve just discovered that blogs using HTTPS in their URL, like yours, will have pingbacks fail. This is a recent change our Systems team has made in our ongoing bid to improve security at Our developer is looking into this. I’m sorry for the frustration this is causing!
