Don't attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence. Internal memo says Facebook's failure to act in preventing abuse outside the West is lack of resources and/or interest

I find refactors with code path switches that include functions titled `oldCodePath` and `newCodePath` really frustrating... and just plain lazy!

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.

Currently parsing a React site scrape. What a hot mess 😬

Imagine: You and your family are sleeping innocently and one night, men with gnus burst through the door and

yes, with gnus

no, not Linux. Blue wildebeest. From southeast Africa. They point a gnu in your face and

the pointy end, yes

the one with horns on

they say 'we demand a stable population with clearly delineated migration corridors from Kenya to Tanzania or we toss you into a watering hole'

to show they mean business they toss a lion into your swimming pool

its not even your lion

Privacy could be the next big thing. My talk from @hackferencebrum about privacy, and how people are uneasy about what's being done with their data. And how to explain that it doesn't have to be this way.
