My family, without any prior warning, assigned my birthday this year a unicorn theme. All other things being equal, we made a good time of it. 🦄 🎈

I pushed a Docker container today.

I’m a devops professional now

“Our impression is that many developers never understood it was happening; in many cases, changes to third-party JavaScript embedded on websites introduced link decoration without web developers’ knowledge.” Yikes. webkit.org/blog/8828/intellige

Me: Oh my goodness, it’s the incredibly rare temparate Atlanta day. I think I have to open my windows and enjoy it!

Leaf blowers: Think again, jackass.

We cancel and un-cancel so many people on a — not daily, hourly — over shreds of information no more or less substantive than single lines of throwaway quotation in a blog from god-knows-where and I’m just so exhausted by all of it. I can’t keep up.

Things normal people do a few glasses of wine in: Watch Netflix, laugh, DT their friends

Wild how much more compelling a stance can be when it isn’t written with the diction of a slighted 15-year-old in the MacRumors comments section.

Indie devs looking to project all their complaints onto this should find a more “indie” horse to back. 🙃 apple.com/newsroom/2019/03/add

“Look at us, we’re basically paupers! Father could only afford to buy one podcast network this year!”

I was excited to hear about “Everyday Carry” as a class of product because it sounded like something I’d like, but then dismayed as it turned out to mostly be dudes who are into non-regulation camo patterns and hiding knives everywhere.

“This can’t be used for real web dev, it doesn’t use annotations like Spring!”

Me, flatly, doing my best Gene Wilder: Oh gosh. The humanity. Oh golly. How dare they. Who can save us from this

The Warren proposal is compelling, but encapsulates how unprepared government is to handle omnivorous data collection. G and FB will argue theirs is one big inseparable mass, probably more cogently but with more yelling than US v. Microsoft. medium.com/@teamwarren/heres-h
