i'm reminded of how polaroid instant cameras were very popular in the gay scene back in the bad old days, because if you sent a picture of you and your boyfriend being cute together in to be developed, the lab would happily out you to the police and then you'd get arrested
Weird and OT, but does anyone know what this diagram type is called?
Something like “wire diagram”, “fiber diagram”, etc., I’m guessing?
Dude created 200 fake Facebook accounts, half to post pro-vax stuff, half to post anti-vax stuff. Most of both stayed up, but Facebook removed 3x as many pro-vax posts as anti-vax posts. https://www.reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful/comments/oyoved/oc_i_created_200_fake_facebook_accounts_half_to/

this is why “don’t break the web” is a thing
thanks @firstname.lastname@example.org for pointing this one out
Is it any surprise that the browser vendor without a long term support channel is also the one that constantly breaks websites by pushing poorly-tested changes to "stable" and deciding it's okay to break standards compliant code as long as it doesn't impact their services?
This is only true because the Chrome team in particular has decided to make it true. Old websites used to work until you decided it was okay to repeatedly break things that worked for a decade because you think everything can be rewritten or abandoned like a Google product
“The web breaks all the time (because we keep breaking it) so buckle up” is such a Google take.
What a drastic shift from “Cool URIs don’t change” https://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI
10/ Third, on breakage in general -- breaking changes happen often on the web, and as a developer it's good practice to test against early release channels of major browsers to learn about any compatibility issues upfront.

What if the ancient idea of gossip as a peculiarly feminine sin was just a way to keep women from telling the stories of what happened to them & who they are?
The boss says you can’t discuss your salary for the same reason. It’s disruptive to a successful system of exploitation.
if it’s not acceptable for cops to randomly enter your house and rifle through your books, videos and magazines (and it isn’t), then it’s not acceptable for your own files stored on your own phone to be subjected to random invasive search behind your back

Attempts at an Australian keyboard layout proved unpopular, so almost all keyboards shipped down under are now back to QWERTY.
The longer you look at it the better it gets.
Thread: Ein kleiner Bericht über meine Arbeit: Jeder kennt sie: Stahlspundwände an Gewässern. Im Prinzip ökologische Totzonen, unüberwindlich wie die Berliner Mauer. Eigentlich sollten dort flache Ufer sein, Wasserpflanzen sich entfalten, Weiden gen Himmel wachsen. Weil das
PSA: when googling on how to strip a section from a mach-o file use the dash in the name: "macho strip section" still gives the search results, but perhaps not the ones you are looking for 🙈
I was working as a software developer when I wrote most of these. This one is a subtweet about dozens of people I’ve worked with. It’s also something Jean-Luc was better at than most. https://twitter.com/picardtips/status/1417595807126097922
