"SwiftUI, Privacy, macOS, and the Web"
I had planned on working this weekend but got distracted and instead wrote this 4000+ word riff on what I think about SwiftUI, privacy in software, open source, and where I think Apple is heading.
I resent that my computer, the most complex and powerful machine I'll likely ever use, is turned on by some pissant little five-cent plastic button like it's a shitty VCR from the 90's. I want a massive ornate copper knife switch, as long as my forearm, with the lower position hand-lettered "HALT" and the engaged position labelled "COMPUTE." When I go to use my computer, I want it to know I MEAN it.
Did my part for #DeactiDay.
I’ve been on Twitter since before the iPhone existed. But like many of us, I’m sick of all the stuff you’ve heard plenty about, and it’s only been getting worse over the past decade.
I’m not quite ready to delete my entire account, but I’m considering it. I deleted the apps from all devices and posted a ‘find me elsewhere’ with links.
It’s a step at least.
