This is such a super nice piece of feedback on a software package. As a maintainer, I've never felt so seen
Finding out a band that you were into 20 years ago has just kept producing music ever since—and is still good. https://www.youtube.com/user/DeKift
Everyone keeps saying how hard it is to create legally sound descriptions of ethical use in licenses. But once we're down to a dozen or so giant tech companies, you can simply list them by name.

Novices start out with just some basic accessible entry-grade stuff, but you can book (very expensive) courses with my organization that'll teach you the subtlety of more refined ideas. And then you get a bunch of new cards to take home.
It'll be like Magic the Gathering for existential angst.
Excuse me but "Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg won’t talk to the Guardian. So we fed everything he says into an algorithm, built a Zuckerbot, and interviewed it" has got to be the best take. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/dec/22/zuckerbot-mark-zuckerberg-facebook-botnik
