Weird to find myself saying good things about startup culture in several conversations lately. The theme was UX, and my point was that growth-obsessed companies have seriously upped the stakes in how much thought we put into interfaces. And that's a good thing—there was (and remains) way too much "RTFM" mentality in open source culture, and corporate software houses still don't really seem to get UX at all.
Does anyone else feel that they basically lucked into a high paying career because their interests randomly aligned with scarcity and a rapidly growing field, and that it's nowhere near as hard, or as societally valuable as what teachers, medical professionals and care-givers do?
Every time I second-guess this paper I end up realizing it was right after all. Efficient and Flexible Incremental Parsing https://www.researchgate.net/publication/2377179_Efficient_and_Flexible_Incremental_Parsing . It's from 1998 but none of the more recent papers in this space describe as ambitious and practical a system as theirs.
Don't invasively mess with editable fields in web pages unless you know what you're doing—take it from someone who's spent a career doing just that. There's SO MUCH you can screw up, so many accessibility landmines and obscure workflows that you never even heard of.

So "Canonical LR" parsers claim to be more powerful than LALR with similarly compact parse tables (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canonical_LR_parser). Which makes me wonder, if they are so great, how come I never heard of them? (The technique has existed since 1977.)
