Merci ! Cette chanson "Les gueux", dรฉtournement de "Les vieux", est tout simplement magnifique


Julia (the programming language) and its ecosystem are fantastic.

For example, I was looking for a way display 3D objects (a scene graph). 5 minutes later I find bindings for Meshcat github.com/rdeits/MeshCat.jl which works in the browser, notebooks, IDE, etc, and has minimal dependencies.

I look forward to the Julia meetup in Ghent (BE) this coming Friday. Should be very cool!

#microsoft is open

It's open about working with ICE (committing crimes against humanity)

It also opens its wallet to bribe officials

The software of Microsoft? No, not so open. All proprietary. It would be "cancer" and "communism" otherwise.

Even if it is opt-in, user profile directory popularity contests are not likely to have a good outcome.

Try not to design systems which foster personality cults. There's too much of that in the silos already.

Interpreting years as unicode codepoint, U+2018 is the left single quotation mark, and U+2019 is the right single quotation mark. Are these years just meant as a hypothetical?

In any case, U+2020 is the dagger โ€

To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!

Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:

Control Your Platform.

Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.

They all go away. Every one of them.

Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.

Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.

@alcinnz Secondly, the root of the reason why documents are not applications is because documents have a very specific content flow mode (it may be in a left-to-right language like most languages, or a right-to-left script language like Hebrew and Arabic, but that's about the extent of variety for 99% of the content in the world)

Applications are not expected to follow a flow model, you should be able to position any element on any part of the available surface.
