Hey @HachetteUS@twitter.com, @HarperCollins@twitter.com, @WileyGlobal@twitter.com, @penguinrandom@twitter.com, I will not buy any more books from you until you stop harassing the Internet Archive with lawsuits, and I will advice everyone I know to do the same.

I'm also happy that the current POTUS has lost the election, but people shouldn't congregate in masses during the peak of a pandemic... really sad to watch to be honest.

I really can't understand why some people finds 's variable rebinding confusing, yet these same people are alright with the concept of shadowing in nested functions, let expressions, etc. 🤷

WOW @USPS@twitter.com 's Informed Delivery is one of the most insecure services I have ever seen: anyone can setup a change of address, subscribe for "Informed Delivery" and *without any sort of verification* get mail covers scans for any (residential?) address you would like to target O_O

And it really baffles me that there's still no *A GitHub for journalists*...

Scientific journalism (i.e. the practice of including raw source materials in news articles) with a transparent, version controlled, editorial process. That's what I want.

Oh no, another Android update 😫
app switch is so glitchy, and I guess there is no way to go back to the old square button...

I can't explain how ridiculously difficult is to travel to the UK with pets right now... In other news, I am moving to Bristol in two weeks :p

My new feature for Elixir's IEx is now in master: press tab after the open parentheses in a function application to see its definition; useful for when you don't remember the order of the arguments 😄
