I’ve finally started going through all my RSS feeds, so there’s a lot to this week’s log. The topics are all over the place from the IRS doing what it should have done from the beginning, to a boneheaded decision to add some new top level domains, to the US Supreme Court saving Section 230.
This week I look at a new game that helps illuminate what the content moderators of sites like Twitter, Facebook and Reddit have to deal with. I’ve also read about writing better CSS, Bookshop.org’s rise, return to office shenanigans and more.
Between a weekend trip and my site update, this has been 3 weeks in the making. This log we look at the passing of a folk legend, Microsoft reverting to its old ways, Microsoft facing a hurdle in its Activision acquisition, some chatty parrots, and more.
This week a lot of details were announced about .NET 8 and C# 12. Also included is NPR leaving Twitter, Uber screwing drivers, and the power of libraries.
NASA makes a big announcement about Artemis II, rumors about Apple’s USB-C iPhone, Twitter being Twitter, and more.
Podcast heavy this week. I've been trying to go through and listen to my unruly queue.
You know all those supposedly "good" password rules? Well, they tend not to be so good.
This week I read about the web becoming more miserable, and dysfunction in D.C. over tech issues.
