My favourite part of Toronto’s vision zero plan is how you can open a a window in East York at night and hear street racing in three different directions.

A worker owned taxi #coop in Southend has grown from 6 to 70 drivers.

They repaid all their investors and returned £3000 to their members last year. The same year Uber left the area after failing to compete with them.

We need this in every town and city!


Every time I try to reconsider android, it goes like this:

1) factory reset and bring the device up to current patch level

2) walk the apps permissions list and turn off almost everything

3) set up an account on the device and grant reasonable-sounding permissions as usage progresses.

Invariably the place I give up is when something from Google starts spouting grabby nonsense. This time around, it was "the SMS app won't work if Google Play Services can't access body sensors."

Lazyweb: if I want to sell shirt designs, and I’d like it to be a teespring-like thing where the shirt won’t wear through in 3 months, the material isn’t sourced from somebody dumping trash in the ocean or working meth-addled children through 17 hour days and everyone involved is making something approximating a living wage, what shirt vendor do I want?

Why limit yourself to existing -nyms, like some sort of suffix pleb? Tell me your petronym, your secret second name that will be carved in the rocks that demark the passage of your life, or and the heironyms that populate it. Tell me about your ananyms, those different pronunciations of your name whose contrasts tell a story of your family history. Don't chump it up with "antonyms", gimme the good stuff.

One of the finer things in life is aliasing sudo to "please" 😛😊

This talk, "Performance Matters" by Emery Berger, is blowing my mind. youtube.com/watch?v=r-TLSBdHe1

Summary: profilers from ~20 years ago (what I talked about when I was doing performance work back in the day) are no longer as useful. There is evidence that unpredictable things like memory layout can change performance by ~40%. Everything is async, concurrent these days, and profilers don't cope.

Shows newer methods and a new profiler, and gets awesome results.

@hergertme you'll enjoy this :)
