This is the real Java-Script because it is written in the Javanese alphabet:

Which is of course not to say that text encoding is (or can be) apolitical. On this topic I always recommend @chimeracoder@twitter.com's classic 2015 piece modelviewculture.com/pieces/i-

If anything, the importance of the campaign (and of representation and diversity efforts generally!) just underscores how bizarre it is to put these decisions in the hand of a text encoding standards body

You're forbidden from teleporting because there's insufficient data sanitization and some junk DNA in you makes the program crash

In my keyboard research, one of the most amazing and constant features is how *early* some of the ideas appeared.

I think it doesn't get discussed enough how people of different levels of technical sophistication authenticate the *origin* and *integrity* of stuff they see online (to say nothing about the *veracity*, a whole 'nother question)

Lots of people weren't around for when the fediverse was at its first peak at around 2010-2011. Google Plus swept in and plenty of people quit the fediverse saying "Google will do a better job keeping this running than independent sites can." For this and some other reasons, for some time the fediverse was a ghost town.

Discord is valued at 1.65 _billion_ dollars.

What kind of person can look at that and go "ah, yes, this free chat service is totally not gonna screw us out of private data for profit"?
