There is a direct line between the 1940s control room for the Voice of America radio station* and today's US policies of protecting today's tech giants and their business models.

If it doesn't pop into your mind with an "aha" moment, read up on the VOA's history.

* Note the lack of microphone.

It’s at this point any responsible bartender would cut off the customer.

When you're posting hashtags that contain multiple words, it's a good idea to capitalise the first letter of each word. This helps blind people who use screen reader software to know what the hashtag actually says.

For example #DogsOfMastodon is much easier for screen reader users than #dogsofmastodon, even though they're technically the same tag.

This kind of capitalisation is usually known as "CamelCase". CamelCase doesn't just help blind people, it also makes hashtags clearer for sighted people too!

Using CamelCase won't affect your post's visibility (because searches ignore capitalisation) but it will improve the post's accessibility, so you'll get more people reading it.

Thank you to @martyn for raising this topic 👍

I'm designing a sign to "hang" on my Twitter and LinkedIn profiles when I leave (FB I left a couple years ago). Right now it says that "if I'm NOT back by November it's a success". But I'm already feeling the immense relief of not posting and reading there anymore.

I'm wondering how many more could potentially experience the same relief…

I am loving this new Florence + The Machine album, especially this track which jumped out at me the first time I heard it. Maybe because I find it highly relatable music.youtube.com/watch?v=ui8k

Put £97 worth (USD $120) worth of diesel in my van yesterday. Just about doubled its value.

When Margaret wants sink water she doesn’t meow or bother me or anything. Instead she does this, which is much more unsettling
