Oh, good to know—thank you!
Because—given the environmental impact of proof of work—it is morally indefuckingfensible to invest in Bitcoin.
To everyone who came to #PatternsDay yesterday—thank you so, so much for being part of it! I had a blast and I hope you did too. Thank you!
W00t! So happy you could be there!
Thank you so much, Dan—so glad you could be here for it!
Cheers, Dave! Thanks for being part of it!
Thank you so much for coming—it was lovely to meet you!
Thank you for coming! (also: chocolates!)
You’re a bad person and you should feel bad.
If you’re already in Brighton for tomorrow’s #PatternsDay, there isn’t an official pre-party or anything, but might I suggest gathering at the twin watering holes of The Eagle and The Basketmakers on Gloucester Road this evening? ☀️🍻
Brightonians (and visitors!) with websites: remember that this evening’s Homebrew Website Club Brighton is at the earlier time of 5pm in the @Clearleft studio.
Oh, wow! Amazing!!!
That’s a superb line-up!
Good to have you back in the conference-organising game, Patrick.
Vielen Dank, Oscar—that’s very kind of you.
As well as ourincrediblejourney.tumblr.com, there’s https://indieweb.org/site-deaths and https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Deathwatch
I think I’ve still got mine somewhere too!
(Dan, I would very much like to link to your post: will you be posting it on your blog?)
(Remember your blog?)
(Remember your blog!)
Oh, that’s gonna be good! James Burke and Helen Sharman!!
It isn’t even July yet, and I’ve already got Apollo fever:
Next up: the new Apollo 11 documentary @DukeOfYorks this Wednesday:
Reading Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness by Peter Godfrey-Smith.
Thanks, thanks, thanks, Armitage Shanks:
To take selfies with. Duh!
Thank you both for helping make my dream a reality.
Oh, wow! That looks great! …But I’m going to be out of the country. 😢
I feel like we need a word or phrase to encapsulate SSR + rehydration; just saying SSR doesn’t cover it, in my opinion—it puts the emphasis on the part that isn’t causing the problem.
For clarity: is the problem with server-side rendering or is the problem with rehydration?
(e.g. if I serve up HTML+CSS and then don’t subsequently dump a bucket of JS on everything, is it fair to say that’s good for performance?)
On Wall Street, no one can tell that @iamcal is wearing shorts.
Web standards aren’t like software development. When something lands in a browser, it’s forever. That should not be taken lightly.
Whoops! Looks like an unencoded ampersand slipped in there. Should be all fixed now. (Thanks for letting me know!)
I 100% agree that Apple are the worst at making up proprietary crap behind closed doors.
That in no way absolves other browser vendors from being held to account (especially the browser with the largest market share).
Just getting through to support was a trial: even though I was already logged in, I was made to complete multiple dehumanising CAPCHAs just to file an issue.
I was using Backblaze but it slowed my Mac to a complete crawl (and their support is terrible) so I’m looking for a replacement now too.
Looking forward to it! Say Hi to to the eLife crew for me!

Glad to hear that this common use-case is getting “standardised”:
whispers if you add the Instagram website to your home screen, it’s pretty much the same as the app …but without ads!
A big +1 to Lara’s Resilient Management!

Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
It’s really good!
Her book, Inferior, is really good!
Go raibh míle maith agat, Niamh!
Got up. Typed

Equating anti-persona with anti-vaxxer is the very definition of bullshit.
I may have gone off on a bit of a rant in the latest newsletter from @Clearleft:

Whoops! Good catch—fixed.
How about container quer—
Oh, that’s a good point about putting the link to the original near the top. I’m going to do that from now on.
I would say Falcor from Neverending Story, the big flying dog.
