@linux I think that's the build environment. Looks like it's a kernel and bootloader from scratch


This is interesting

"Building an Operating System for the Raspberry Pi"

@volt4ire That opening sentence is one of the most terrifying things I've ever read.

I don't know why World War IV will be fought, but World War III will be fought because of an overreaction to a "cyber incident" nytimes.com/2018/01/16/us/poli

@jamey They fixed the response time issue in the original version of the web. Tim Berners-Lee called it 鈥淗TML鈥 ;)

Seriously, most of the slowdowns aren鈥檛 even because of backend bottlenecks. It鈥檚 that they have to pull in dozens of (usually unnecessary) JS and CSS libs before the site even renders

@cypnk I haven't looked carefully at the AMP spec, but when I skimmed it I remember noticing a number of requirements like "response time must be fast" or something that seemed like excellent advice but which didn't seem to warrant a new way of serving pages. It feels like engineers said "the world would be better if these things changed" and management found a way to exploit it.

@elomatreb Exactly! It鈥檚 absurd that publishers are being pressured into this by a search engine. And lately, they鈥檝e started de-indexing old pages too

Google isn鈥檛 trying to make the web searchable. It鈥檚 trying to replace it

@mushmouth First time I heard that song was on a movie called Office Space (1999). It was such an absurd pairing; Hard core hiphop and white collar office workers. The movie was hilarious though. There鈥檚 so much of the dialog still in everyday vernacular

@mushmouth The original lyrics to that song are *much* worse 馃槀

I don鈥檛 visit AMP sites. Accelerated Mobile Pages are not web pages. They鈥檙e Google-friendly web apps that break the open web

AMP is an 鈥渙pen鈥 web format as much as Office Open XML (.docx, .pptx etc...) is an 鈥渙pen鈥 document format. No, Microsoft barged itself into consensus by leveraging its market penetration. Google is trying to do the same thing to the web

I have to keep using MS formats for docs since the business world refuses to budge

But I will not go gently into that Google night

@arcans Ouch! At least it's not a permanent injury so hopefully you'll be fine by tomorrow

@RussSharek I'm glad it's not serious and you got to turn into a teachable moment
