The biggest threat to software longevity is maintainability, primarily the question of whether or not a program can be fixed, and tech giants' current strategy is to deploy any and all software as programs that by design cannot be fixed twitter.com/Dolphin_Emu/status

These are *actual* notes from Peter Thiel's class at Stanford on how to run startups, featuring VPs from Palantir and PayPal. And it gets worse from here.

I was just informed that "n-b" and "n.b" are cool to use for non-binary!

RT @Barldarian@twitter.com

PSA: Please use "non-binary" when referring to strangers.
- "enby" can feel infantilizing/cutesy and some people feel uncomfortable being called that
- "NB" already stands for Non-Black

New by me and @AllMattNYT@twitter.com: Trump’s re-election campaign is running a sophisticated, well-funded digital operation, while Dems struggle to catch up.

It’s like “a supercar racing a little Volkswagen Bug,” one expert said.

@AllMattNYT@twitter.com We talked to insiders from both sides of the aisle.

@AllMattNYT@twitter.com The big winner in this, of course, is the platforms, which cash in on all sides and reward inflammatory messages by design.
