This week we look at a historical close call with our nuclear weapons, the OLPC laptop, the NSA going after ISIS, good CSS design tips, and ES2019.

This week I read about Firefox improving users' privacy by default, why the GOP and conservatives are wrong about "censorship" on social media, nuclear energy, and a weird bit of tax policy.
This week I read about a spouse's experience with the aftermath of an NFL career, Apple at least partially embracing the right-to-repair, and the benefits of code deletion.
This week I read about changes in the US Navy, another nuclear accident in Russia, a prank gone wrong, and more.
Lately, I’ve been making steady progress on my side project, which I’m currently calling Digital Family Cookbook. I’m making it as a content management system for cooking recipes. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m writing it using Node.js, React, & GraphQL. It’s been quite a learning curve, but I’m definitely glad I’ve been working on it. The tools are pretty cool and easy-ish to use once you get used to the syntax and some of the idiosyncrasies of React and JSX.
I've decided to start this back up. Some interesting thoughts about making the data social media has on us transferrable, DIY Phone Farms, and a new software development podcast I've found.
Two and a half months in, I figured I’d reflect on where things stand with regards towards working towards the goals I set for myself.
Not too long this week. We look at the anti-vaccine movement, a new drug treatment for depression, Facebook's "supposed" change, and a neat proof of concept for spying.
2 weeks combined this time as I was in NYC last weekend. This week I read about loot boxes, whistle blowing, YouTube conspiracies and more.
It's a little late, but here we go. This week we look at code, login forms, and the old Altavista search engine.
This week looks at controversies at Instacart and DoorDash, possible changes in MLB rules, French battlefields in WWI and WWII, & Google/Facebook lock-in.
Another week, another set of articles ranging from Apple's row with Facebook to the future of American infrastructure.
So I think for 2019, I'm going to try something new. I'm going to try to share a weekly list of various articles and podcasts I've read or listened to over the week that I've found interesting. So here we go.
Since we’re now about 3 weeks into 2019, I figured I’d quickly see where I’m at in terms of my goals for the year.
A year later, let's see what happened in 2018 and what I'm looking at for 2019.
