Cultural appropriation is such an interesting fight that we have on the left and in this country, because we often treat it to mean "Cultural theft" which implies the existence of "Cultural property", ideas and practices that can belong to one group of people. While I don't necessarily disagree with that framework, I do think sometimes it might be more productive to talk of Erasure, Fetishization, and Commodification.
IPFS is a really nice distributed filesystem that is slowly growing in popularity. Netflix has found a good use case: container image distribution.
I'm slightly reminded of Usenet: just download content from the nearest server!

Just got another email from a blind user of SourceHut thanking me for caring about accessibility in my work. And honestly, it wasn't difficult. I don't understand why my peers in web development seemingly couldn't give a rat's ass about accessibility. Maybe because at their level of complexity, to them "accessibility" means "a shitload of aira tags and a ton of work", whereas at my level of complexity it means "just keep it simple and don't do anything particularly stupid"
Google memories (1/x)
y'all going to laugh, but I really believed it. I drank the kool-aid. this was the mid-00s, a tech company with a motto "don't be evil" still felt daring rather than cringe – for an alienated techie like past me, at least; my politically aware friends tried to warn me; but I didn't realise that Google leveraged its fine-tuned advertising machinery also for recruiting, and I swallowed the whole thing.
"Server-side rendering is not a fallback; client-side rendering is an enhancement."
I would further and say client-side rendering can be (not "is"), a performance optimization for subsequent page loads (and offline). It's only a net-win if you invest non-trivial effort (SW, streams, race network, handle long-lived tabs and cache misses to old JS, etc).
In almost all other cases, it merely produces a slower, less usable, less available version of itself.
