Oh man the “50 cent has $8 million in Bitcoin” story was a lie? Do I need to start asking for sources in casual lunch conversations now too? 😉🙃 theverge.com/tldr/2018/2/26/17

Facebook had a literal best practice internally referred to as "friendly fraud", when children bought in game items without their parents' knowledge. Facebook encouraged the practice of deceptive UIs and refused refunds to parents.

This entire culture was a huge part of why I stopped working on Facebook games in 2010 (before that market crashed). My stomach hurt when I thought of the dozens of people paying $1000s/month on the fake zoo animals in our games.

seems like people who create websites are forgetting that page titles are still useful

how am i supposed to find a link i bookmarked earlier when i need it if the only thing its title is saying is "pleroma" or "x's blog"? and if someone shares it in a messenger, the preview will not tell them anything

please, set titles to something reasonable. i love how mastodon does it, an excerpt of a toot. and if your blog post has a title (most probably), why not use it.

I received a copy of “The Daily Stoic” for Christmas. I was apprehensive at first, but I’m enjoying a small bit of mindfulness each day. 🙂

I just learned that there is a boat shuttle service in Santa Barbara called “Lil' Toot” and she's the cutest boat ever

Overheard at work:

Person A: “Ummm... I think I spilled yogurt on my keyboard.”
IT guy: “...”
Voice from the next aisle over: “A day in the life of the IT guy.”

Interesting perspective. I'd never really thought of performance that way.

I’ve been using Blendle launch.blendle.com/ because:

* It has articles from many sources
* It’s nothing but content (no ads, no distractions)

Unfortunately, it has a few things that irritate me as well. Are there any good Blendle competitors out there?

"Human progress isn’t measured by industry. It’s measured by the value you place on a life. An unimportant life. A life without privilege. The boy who died on the river, that boy’s value is your value. That’s what defines an age, that’s… what defines a species. "
