This probably shouldn’t bother me too much, but I just found someone’s fork of an old open source library I wrote, and their first commit was “re-author library” in which they removed all mention of me and my license, replacing it with their own. I’m not mad, just disappointed.

Hey, folks! Check it out: the first alpha version of PHP 8.2.0 drops this Thursday, along with point releases for 8.1.7 and 8.0.20.

Just now finding out about a few Easter eggs on the @php website.

Try out the Konami Code, for example. 😂

The Internet was supposed to free us from gatekeepers, the so-called "tastemakers" who judged what was worth seeing and hearing.

Instead, the gatekeepers have become algorithms, and thus something as human as taste has now become automated.

It's kind of tragic.

But one big reason I prefer the Fediverse over Twitter, for example, is that there is no algorithmic gatekeeping.

So maybe the dream is still alive.

I'm not sure why I didn't think about this earlier, but I decided to check out WebKit's implementation, and they're basically doing the same thing I'm trying to do, so that provides me with some good example code to look at. github.com/WebKit/WebKit/blob/

@ramsey don’t worry they don’t watch you online.

BUT THEY KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE

At least it’s not a floppy disk?

Something about this mailer feels very creepy.

OH in the auto mechanic’s waiting area: “You don’t have to be Beyoncé to have standards.”

I’ve been writing C lately, and despite frustrations around grokking pointers, I can say, without a doubt, it’s still easier than JavaScript.

So I urge you to sign concerned.tech/ . Let's try to at least firewall those unregulated casinos so far off the real world that they don't harm our social and economic systems and our fellow human beings.

So much about crypto criticism is about systemic, about structural flaws. Not about being a good boy who can invent an even more complex but this time totally perfect new machine.

🤔 I wonder how we get a summer of #activitypub funded in a similar vein to summer of Nix?

Because some funded workshops for some knowledge transfer and support for projects wanting to integrate with the standard would help the community as a whole.

Looks like someone forgot to engage the inertial dampeners this morning.

“…the #gender I was assigned at birth was ‘boy.’ The gender I have now is ‘man’. Boys and men have different gender roles, and few adults identify as boys anymore. From this standpoint, every adult has a different gender than the one they had at birth.”

🤯

I just saw the most Galaxy Brain gender take ever, from a cis man on reddit quousque.tumblr.com/post/68457

Also, the little girl who plays Leia is spot on! She acts and sounds just how I might imagine Leia to be at 10-years-old. She’s so good!

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?
