75% of people who work 4 days a week report high job satisfaction and less illness in the workplace. Over half (69%) report lower stress levels.

Been seeing a fair a bit of discussion of Netflix's The Social Delimma. I haven't seen it, and I don't plan to subscribe in order to do so.

Like The Verge's: theverge.com/interface/2020/9/

These reviews seem to suggest that documentary discusses important topics, but in a very oversimplified way.

asking a non-binary person to explain their name yields one of two results

1: okay so it’s shortened from an abstract concept that’s incredibly meaningful to me and here’s a journal entry i wrote about the process of c-

2: i named myself brick. it’s short for bricholas

«We cannot have a society in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it's financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them.»

website signup form but the "legal name" field is a binary choice and the "gender" field has to contain a globally unique value

pride hearts emoji collection (emoji heavy) 

Ugh, why are all UI toolkits universally total garbage?

Next level clickbait on the local newspaper! “E.T. gets caught. Organic life is detected… on Venus”.


When it comes to videoconferencing name recognition seems to be worth a lot. Jitsi Meet has such a gorgeous experience, just click the link and you're on the call. No account required at all! But others will say "let's just use Google Meet" or "let's just use Zoom".

What do we need to do?????

I see that more and more (climate) activist groups are using #Telegram. I worry about this. Please read why:

- Telegram groups are not end-to-end encrypted.

- Meta-data: Telegram can see who are a group member.

- Although they say the messages are encrypted on their servers (with a home-made encryption protocol), they are the ones having the keys, so in theory they can also see what’s said in the group.

- There are examples of groups that were deleted by Telegram. Although these where ISIS and criminal groups, remember that Telegram has the power to do this.

- You can only sign-up with your phone number.

- Only the Telegram clients (apps) are open source, not the code they use on their servers.

- Telegram is founded, owned and funded by the Russian billionaire Pavel Durov. Although he’s anti-Putin, he’s a (American style) libertarian and of course a capitalist.

Please find something better folks!

#15deSeptiembre se celebra en #México la #Independencia.

Por lo general, se da #ElGrito en los palacios de gobierno y municipales. En esta ocasión, debido a la pandemia, no se tendrán dichas celebraciones masivas en las plazas públicas.

Para respetar los protocolos de salud, debemos quedarnos en casa, no hacer reuniones numerosas, más que las de la propia familia que resida en casa.

#QuédateEnCasa #YoMeQuedoEnCasa #SanaDistancia #GritoDeIndependencia


A la mierda la política, el estado y las fronteras, pero viva a las tradiciones, las costumbres, la gastronomía, la riqueza y esencia cultural de un pueblo que pese a tanto saqueo, se mantiene en pie, ¡¡Arriba los Mexicanos del mundo¡¡

GOTO 2020 • You Really Don't Need All That JavaScript, I Promise • Stuart Langridge: invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=

It's sad looking at the comments on that video. Even suggesting that you should use *less* JavaScript, that you're making things harder on yourself as a webdev, yields defensiveness... He makes many strong points though!

I like suggesting we should transition to having no JS at all!

The web wasn't lost by people posting baby pictures to Facebook. The web was lost when Google leveraged market dominance to enact a complete abrogation of web standards -- since the HTML 'standard' is now a 'Living Document,' the standard is "do whatever Chrome does," which is an unattainable goal.

There are four voting members of WHATWG. Two of them use Google's web rendering engine. A third is entirely financially dependent on Google. The other one is Apple. Who speaks for you? Nobody.
