People talking about Instagram shadowban, apparently automation tools are black hat...

Very cute piece about a (very tiny) slice of Southern Italy's culture.

Bootstrapping a customer focused platform while working a 9 to 5 job can get pretty tough.

Keeping friends and family close and in the loop is a must to be able to survive in the long run

A LinkedIn bs filter would be very easy to implement: filter all people with more than one "|" in their job description.

And this is why software development is actually much more similar to "building a bridge" than we'd like to admit

"...fishermen near Southeast Farallon witnessed a pair of orcas kill a young great white that tried to nose in on the sea lion they were eating. The orcas bashed him to death then ate his liver."

Now I like orcas even more! 😍 (it's unfortunate for sharks, though)
