Is HTML a programming language?
@heydon has the answer – and as always, in great style:
We are still offering free VPN access for anyone in Ukraine and Russia. We have servers ready not just in Kharkiv, but in other locations in the region (Helsinki, Warsaw, Bucharest, Budapest).
We are extending this offer of free VPN service to anyone currently in Belarus. We are aiming to reach more people - please help us signal boost this offer. Any recommendations on spreading the word would also be appreciated.

Found an interesting technique to style CSS grid tracks:
I'm watching "Good Bye, Lenin!" (2003).
A son and daughter perform a deception that the communist DDR is continuing in 1989/90, in an attempt to prevent their deeply socialist mother from suffering another heart attack.
A breakthrough performance by Daniel Brühl.
Absolutely superb film. Highly recommended.

“Building a Magical 3D button with HTML and CSS”
This one’s a lot of fun. https://www.joshwcomeau.com/animation/3d-button/
I think I'm going to spend more time here this year. Some things I released lately:
1. A video on progressive enhancement: https://briefs.video/videos/is-progressive-enhancement-dead-yet/
2. A punk/blues/rockabilly/sludge record: https://deathgarage.bandcamp.com/album/death-garage-1

Go to your room and think about what you did.
How to de-Google-ify your website to make it faster and more visitor friendly https://markosaric.com/degoogleify/
Interesting approach to monetizing on the web. Alternatives to the ad/tracking model exist.
"An example that gives me a heart attack is Tailwind CSS generates over 40 thousand lines of CSS by default. Bonkers."
"Apple just deployed into production nearly 50 web components powering a major app they have a significant amount of revenue and strategic value riding on. You can't say that "no one uses Web Components" or they are "solving problems that don't exist or have been solved better in user land" with a straight face anymore."
“Why I have a problem with React the library and spend a lot of time talking to my therapist”
This feels broadly correct. React has not been a good influence over the web. And that's even before you take into account that it exists to support Facebook's development and recruitment.
