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.

I think I mentioned it before, but I’ve been working on a new side project. I figured it was a good way to teach myself React and Node.js, much like OpenVoter taught me PHP. I’ve been wanting to familiarize myself with some more modern frameworks, and I feel like Node and React are good places to start.
Last Monday, Microsoft bought GitHub for a whopping $7.5 billion.
