Moving from one android phone to another and bringing your data with you should really not be as difficult as I found it today =/

With this and AMP, Google is gradually erasing the line between googling something and actually visiting a website...

DevOps is designed to align motivation and risk - if you carry the pager for code you write, you're going to be responsible for the consequences of your code, and change your plans accordingly - but if we wanted to do this right for social media, the people actually writing the code would be spending a few days a month moderating content, too.

Listening to the human costs of content moderation, and it remains horrifying, and horrible. Facebook is outsourcing trauma for minimum wage.

It's fucking beautiful and more folk need tae know about it

I’ve been hearing this whole “the kids will save us” line since I was a child myself. In the 1980s.

What that line means is “I can’t be bothered to lift a finger, so I’ll make someone else take the responsibility”.

I'm 39 years old. If the people who had said that about my generation as children had decided to actually do something about either climate change or white supremacy, imagine where we’d be by now.

As a subconscious clicker of empty sides of web pages to confirm window focus, I really f**king dislike the new reddit UI...
