Can't stop thinking about the Mozilla layoffs and what it means for the web. Andreas Gal's "Chrome won" post from 2017 comes to mind:

When it comes down to it, browsers are about people using it, especially if you're trying to build your own rendering engine and maintain compatibility with websites. You can't build your own engine and have single-digit market share, or you wind up in a compatibility death spiral (see: Opera, Edge).

whenever i'm posting on an issue tracker for some open source software maintained by volunteers i feel really like. i dunno. i don't like to put lots of pleasantries because i never see that. but i keep wanting to say "thank you so much for your help!" etc. but i don't ever see anyone else write like that. maybe it's a macho culture thing? like if someone's taking their time to fix some bug just to help me i really wanna thank them. but maybe it's inappropriate? why don't people do it more often

found this groovy collection of fan made guitar tablature for Phish. only credit i can find is reddit user everyone_is_human (wherever you are, thanks for doing this!)

my life currently:

trying to find a specific commit in the kubernetes source using tig

RIP John Lewis, you inspired me more than you can know.

i think something must have changed in my life recently. i am now using `git bisect` for the second time in as many months...

2020 truly is a strange year XD

"#SUSE to acquire #Rancher Labs a leader in #Kubernetes management, and will become world's largest independent organization exclusively dedicated to powering digital transformation with #opensource and cloud native solutions"

congrats to the github crew on releasing a new front-end look and feel.

that said, it makes me unhappy 😢

Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:

1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.

2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.

3. Use camel case in your hashtags.

hot take: digestive biscuits are just graham crackers for adults

@ManyAngled i feel like this directed graph of /ninety nine bottles of beer on the wall/ is right up your alley XD

a little experiment i am hacking on, blog post to come soon but might as well share for now =)
