Pondering the cognitive dissonance of being in favour of vaccines but against GMO crops.

The science-sceptical arguments against both are remarkably similar.

And both are in reality safe and effective.

Learning to write BASIC on my ZX81 was so formative.

Thank you, Clive Sinclair.

I love it when people share on their websites what books they’re reading/have read.

But I remember seeing one web designer’s online bookshelf where out of 96 books, just two were written by women.

And one of those women was Ayn Rand.

As a member of The Long Now Foundation, I am absolutely disgusted by this. The environmental disaster of this “NFT-based crowdfunding model” is the antithesis of long-term thinking.

That makes sense—svg isn’t a replaced element.

My gut feeling is that the download attribute would be handy on the img element (and other replaced elements too?) but I don’t have a use case to hand.

I shall ponder further.

Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

I know this isn’t the use case you’re asking about, but if download were available on the img element, would it makes sense to also make it available on inline SVGs? (I do have a use case I can share for that.)

An alt-history space kick, you say? Are you reading @MaryRobinette’s Lady Astronaut series?

Thanks so much, Jared!

Maybe I could cajole you into being interviewed for the podcast sometime? 😉
