Four tweets above this in my feed is a tech bro I avoid at events because he's kind'v an arse and was often loudly chasing booze. His post is him lamenting how afraid he is to tweet because he might offend someone. twitter.com/KeziyahL/status/11

(Ironic that there’s no way for me to quietly link to the review in question — Twitter would insist on putting it front and centre. That’s the opposite of the point.)

Mundane I know, but to this day I get a thrill from the casual brilliance of hypertext. Reading a restaurant review: fancy a look at the full menu? Curious about that Victor Hugo story? Off you pop.

Turn on for 1 second, turn off for 0.5 seconds, turn on for 0.25 seconds, turn off for 0.125 seconds, turn on for 0.0625 seconds, and continue until 2 seconds have elapsed youtu.be/1BB6wj6RyKo

@rgarner@twitter.com @tekin@twitter.com @floehopper@twitter.com @chrispatuzzo@twitter.com Thanks for the suggestions! Your ideas have collectively made me think of “ratchet rebase”, which (in a classic me manoeuvre) I like best. So I’ll just start saying that now & pretend it’s always been a thing

Does there exist a catchy name for a Git rebase which happens incrementally? Say your branch began 100 commits behind `master` and so, rather than rebasing onto `master` all at once, you do a series of rebases which proceed a handful of commits at a time until you reach its head.

Microsoft is vocally celebrating month, which is a good thing! But how do they reconcile this with their ongoing campaign donations to some of the most homophobic and transphobic politicians in America? Here is a thread of threads with the facts. twitter.com/Microsoft/status/1

This is a masterpiece of the tweeting arts. Two of the founders of AirBnB went to RISD (a prestigious American design school), while the third was a Harvard grad. The conceit that 'rich kid' refers to one's account balance, rather than social class, makes me drop my monocle 🧐

I tried to ask about this before (in a different way) here, but never got an answer that I understood. It’s very possible that I’m just confused. Someone please help my brain. twitter.com/tomstuart/status/1

I realise it’s a naïve question, but I have never understood this: why does React have a separate shallow renderer with a different (and worse) API than the regular test renderer? Is there a fundamental reason why the latter couldn’t support rendering to an arbitrary fixed depth?

This is spot on. And it works! I keep getting distracted by the right-wing narrative and mistakenly end up feeling angry about the corrosive effect of substance dualism or whatever. But nah mate it’s just plain old misogyny, racism, classism and theocracy.

What angers me about the GOP’s attempts to turn the United States into a far-right Christian theocracy is how dishonest they are about it.

At least be forthright about your desire to subvert and dismantle our democracy into a creepy theological order led by a mad king.

Extra good weaknotes from @alicebartlett@twitter.com this week. I can’t fit any quotes into a tweet so a URL will have to do: alicebartlett.co.uk/blog/weakn

RT @JessicaValenti@twitter.com

John Becker (OH) thinks ectopic pregnancies can be "reimplanted" in a uterus. Vito Barbieri (ID) said women can have gyn exams by swallowing a camera. Dan Flynn (TX) believes abortion requires cutting into a uterus.

I guess that’ll depend upon whether it lets you run up a tree by spiralling around the trunk. Already looks like you can jump between branches, though, so that’s a positive sign.

Could this finally be the squirrel simulator I’ve been waiting for? youtu.be/lIjGxIxQ8ok
