OH: “H.P. Lovecraft? I thought you said PHP Lovecraft.”

Replying to a tweet from @KenjiBaheux

I wish that websites would put that sentence right next to their “sign up now!” call to action:

Every project eventually dies, effectively or in practice.

Then, people would be informed about what they’re getting into.

Replying to a tweet from @Una

As always, it depends, but I find that for many sites (e.g. publishing sites) a framework would be overkill. Unless complex state management is a requirement, vanilla JavaScript is more than up to the task of sprinkling in interactivity.

Replying to a tweet from @triblondon

Only if you tell people in advance, when they’re signing up to use your product, that this is what’s going to happen.

The mismatch in expectations should definitely not be applauded.

Reading Resilient Management by Lara Hogan.

I know that “bot” is meant to be short for “robot”, but I can’t help reading it as being short for “bottom”

e.g.

“Chatbottoms are the next big thing.”

or

“Optimise your website for searchbottoms.”

Chrome on iOS is just a skinned version of Safari …minus some low-level features.

Personally, I think it’s anti-competitive of Apple not to allow other rendering engines in the App Store.

Feeling thoroughly inspired after an excellent @BTconf—great talks from start to finish.

I think this may have been the best one yet (which is understandable, given that I wasn’t speaking this time).

Well done, @MarcThiele!
