I hate how creativity has become a thing that only artists are supposed to do. We need to legitimize the value of people who do woodwork, decorative painting, cake decorating, and a lot of other creative hobbies....all creativity enhances our lives, even if it's not professional.

We were monster hunting a bit and during banter a friend casually blew my mind:

"We call private messages 'DMs' now because they're no longer private"

Australia just made Man-In-The-Middle attacks required by law. They call it "the ghost" and every #encryption connection has to be open to the government.

"So we have not come here to beg the world leaders to care for our future. They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again.

It's interesting to see how Šime managed to stay on top of so many web development trends. I used to follow Web Platform Daily religiously because it was the best source of news in the industry. Seems it relied on a big list of RSS feeds, including commits to various W3C/WHATWG repos.

"WebRender newsletter #28" – Mozilla Gfx Team Blog mozillagfx.wordpress.com/2018/

At first I thought WebRender was basically the same as Edge's independent rendering (i.e moving rendering to a background thread), but based on this post it seems a lot more ambitious actually. Interesting stuff, and kudos to the Firefox folks for opening up on their thought process.

38.7c in the morning I hope it's not pneumonia comeback.
