Like, The Beatles are simultaneously actually great, while also feeling like you’re LARPing a specific time period.

Other musical artists give you one or the other, but rarely both.

Dylan feels similar.

Replying to a tweet from @peterme

I don’t have an answer, but I have a hunch that the appeal of The Beatles is less like other musical artists, and more like the appeal of books like The Great Gatsby or Sherlock Holmes—something evocative of its time and yet timeless.

When JavaScript is the first tool we reach for to solve every problem, we risk restricting access rather than expanding it.

My flow:

I type into a textarea and then submit the form.

My tool stack:

The backend is my own cobbled together pile of old PHP and MySQL.

I cross post to Medium and Twitter using their APIs.

Put into strict UX terms, some things cannot be designed in a human-centric and empathetic way. And those things should not be built.

This NFT-crypto-web3 shite really is the QAnon of the tech world—“Trust in the plan!”, “Wake up, sheeple—the mainstream media is lying to you”, “Do the research!” (except they hate it if you actually do the research).

Not very cunning, but I think you can do that DOM traversal in one go:

input.closest(‘fieldset’).querySelector(‘legend’)

The idea that it’s alright to do whatever unethical thing is currently the industry norm is widespread in tech, and dangerous.

Remember when chatbots were definitely the future and that’s how we’d be interacting with everything?

So wrong! The future is certificates of ownership for JPGs generated by planet-killing magic beans, verifiable with a shared spreadsheet.

Therein lies the problem. The “web folks”, the “search folks”, and the “advertising folks” are all working for the same company. If that company were broken up it would be better for all three products.

Someone I know is going to work at Facebook.

Someone else I know wrote an uncritical blog post about “Web3” without once mentioning the environmental impact.

Both make me sad and disappointed.
