RT @email@example.com: So this shipped. 😭
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: Been reading some of the tweets with #WhyIDidntReport and they are so painful. Society needs to do better and believe victims. Light, love, and healing to you if you’ve been carrying pain from your own experience. You are loved. You are worthy. You didn’t derserve it.
i can do nutty stuff with function pointers in C everywhere. but i don't because… duh! it's crazy hard to debug. too much cleverness is always a bad thing.
same with C++ oper-overloading
same with Obj-C swizzles.
same with JS built-in function overloads
but i see lots of Swift devs posting their cleverness as if it's a great thing. use it everywhere! yeah! clever!
*** the swift maintainers and bigwigs need to push pragmatic coding practices. ***
Just caught up on some fractured shard of the Wil Wheaton story.
- 60 reports/day are enough to overwhelm a volunteer admin
- dogpiling can be effective even when coped with by paid staff, historical tracking & analysis, carefully-written policies (see birdsite gamergaters & terfs)z
- the dogpile technique is therefore more effective here
- it's just proven its effectiveness against a celebrity target
Expect a lot more of it. 1/2
just catching up on my mastodon feed… ok. yikes. <backs away slowly>
whelp, those 5 days or so of pre-mob-justice were pretty awesome. i kinda knew it couldn't last, but that did escalate a lot more quickly than even my disturbingly cynical mind imagined.
ok... that's all from me. i'm back to the horrible place for now. mostly because it has my mute filters which ironically makes it seem less horrible than anywhere else.
how’s everyone over here on the-place-that-is-not-the-other-place on this fine wednesday morning?
i can report that people are doing pretty great on the other place that also isn’t the bad one but is different than here. and they’re ok on the bad one too.
but i have no idea about the really really bad one because it’s full of high school people so i just can’t stomach it until at least noon. i’ll have to get back to you on that a bit later.
also? email newsletters. there's a lot of people who want sosh meeds where they can just announce things to randos and the randos will share those announcements with other randos, but they don't actually want to talk to anyone who isn't their friend and they want their friendversations to be private.
Your Perfect Social Network Exists, And It Is Called Email
Hey, #Keybase users: If you'd like to see Mastodon support in Keybase (which is just *perfect* in a federated network to verify people) and have a GitHub account: make sure to voice your wish, +1ing this comment on the related issue. That might make it happen!
I wrote another tutorial for raywenderlich.com, this time on AR Face Tracking using the TrueDepth camera.
Let me know what you think!
Just a reminder to new Mastodon folks: if you want to join an instance where the only letter you can use is "e", I run https://dolphin.town and registrations are open!
