At an AWS conference. Speaker asked how many people use Facebook to relate graphql subscriptions.
A very small number of people raised their hand.
Now I know that some people just don't interact in talks but in a room of developers and ops people who deal in technology maybe it's just dying off in these circles?
Don't ever take my support for a policy as support for a particular person. This whole political culture of attaching policies to specific ppl and whatever baggage that person has is asinine. We don't eat w these politicians, we don't work w them, we don't hang w them or struggle with them, we don't know them. They push legislation I'm also fighting for then lets talk, they're not real about it then keep it moving cuz someone else is. There are no saviors, just things that need to be done.
Ye know that #Tumblr isn't viewable anymore by EU people unwilling to click away their rights, right? If there are other, more respectful, places to share a thing, could ye, maybe?

The nice restaurant in Edinburgh airport is closed and getting replaced by some grill place =( The only place near where it was to get a breakfasty breakfast is a fucking Wetherspoons.
It's infuriating to have to see a Wetherspoons anywhere but especially in an airport after they campaigned so heavily in favour of Brexit. "Welcome arrivals or those departing, remember we hate immigrants but we'll take your money while lobbying to stab you in the back"
@cwebber where is the option for "Oh god, please stop recommending me alt-right videos because I clicked on a Jordan Peterson video by mistake?"
The older I get, the easier it is to just cancel writing that response to some ranting rando on GitHub, Twitter, etc.. Basically whenever I realize it's not worth spending energy on confrontational convos. And when you get older you just realize it earlier, because you've been there a thousand times, then a million times, then it tapers off. I assume that's why some old people can just smile at everyone and not give a single f*** about others' overly strong opinions.
Whenever a web browser, operating system, or web site gains dominance among users, it stops being cool and starts becomes blatantly abusive.
This Chromium nonsense is just more of what we saw from Internet Explorer.
Every generation of geeks learns this anew, and acts all shocked. Learn some history, folks. Learn from those who came before.
Stop supporting only one platform. Variety is ESSENTIAL. Monocultures are death. #sysadmin
