I wish browsers supported lazy loading attribute! That would help, but doesn't seem to work.

Anyone know polymer/lit-element?

If I have children that I don't want to render (images) that need to be rendered into a paper-modal, how can achieve that? The images are being fetched before the modal is opened. I don't want full size images being downloaded until the user interacts.

LB: To my fellow late-20s/early-30s (well, mid-30s) white men who have been working in tech for about a decade: Please read this. Please consider listening and not dismissing the criticism you receive when you exit corporate social media. I know getting called out hurts. I know hurt of this kind is a foreign and scary feeling. Please sit with that feeling and realize it is more about you than the people giving you feedback. Even if it's not easy to hear, feedback is still a gift. This is step 0.

I wrote last week, There and Back Again, a Fediverse Journey.

It's about Gamma the techbro. Gamma thinks that technology is can solve all social problems, so came to the Fediverse. But without systemic bias, he finds his opinions harshly criticized.This makes him uncomfortable. This new technology trying to solve social problems says he's the problem.

Why, and what happens next?

ughhhh stupid spine, why you gotta go and cause me pain

apparently I lost my keybase info (shrug) can't figure out how I managed that.

What do you expect of a full stack developer's website? Looking for ideas on what to do with mine.

It's the anniversary of Pulse and it's awfully quiet.

As it always is.

The victims of Pulse were Black/Latinx and often at the intersection of both, including MANY Puerto Ricans. My auntie had to help a friend from her church prepare for a funeral of one of the victims.

#Pulse #orlando #WeRemember :better_pride:

Let's play a game, how did Matt screw up his expense report this time? I don't think I've had it go through on the first try ever.

This all just feels fundamentally broken. Even polymer, which is supposed to be based on web components--a return to native apis--does this shit. I had such high hopes for it, but it looks like the problems are still all there.

How far we've strayed from MVC, which was literally perfectly applicable to the web.

I'm looking at redux and wondering where the hell we went wrong.

This is an optimization problem. There's a point on the curve where revenue is maximized and bounce is minimized.
