Some interesting design principles here. I particularly like "Parsability, both by humans and machines, to ensure content can be understood in the absence of original software"

Finally get to talk about the most meaningful software project I've had the privilege to work on in my career!  @Postlight partnered w/  @MTA. Wear a Mask. Stop the Spread. to build a new communications platform to centralize, modernize & target rider messaging https://postlight.com/work/mta
