"Adobe is cutting off users in Venezuela due to US sanctions" Another example how dangerous it is to rely on proprietary and rented software. This can't happen to you if you build your business on top of #FreeSoftware which is the only software you really own. theverge.com/2019/10/7/2090403

Yesterday I watched Costas Gavras' movie "Adults in the room". Although I really appreciate the director, do not expect a masterpiece like the "Missing" or "State of siege". But it is worth it that exists a movie that presents how EC, ECB and IMF tackled the Greek debt crisis, by just insisting on a "designed to fail" plan that saved the European banks and led a large part of the Greek population to poverty.

God I hate reddit sometimes. It's like someone said "ok we need a place to put all the really self-loathing toxic people" but then forgot to put up a warning sign on the door.

I replaced Monocle's Font Awesome SVG+JS icons with their SVG sprite icons and it loads soooo much faster now! There was always a visible delay while the JS loaded in the SVG icons. Now it's just handled by the browser with no JS.

I always assumed that it was a slow network causing the issues, but I opened up the browser tools to check and it turns out the slowdown was happening while rendering the page, not when fetching external data. Goes to show it's a good idea to open up the browser tools once in a while to check out what's happening under the hood!

@alcinnz I'm sick of the propaganda on the AGW you're spreading. You're smart enough to check the information. But do it. See you when this propaganda will lose momentum.

A brilliant way to visualize the difference between data, information, knowledge, insight, and wisdom. Discovered on David Perell Monday Musings!

If RMS foes are Matt Lee et al, then I worry greatly not just for #softwarefreedom in the hands of #fsf but also #freespeech

He blocked me in #twitter for no reason whatsoever. It's just insane!

Same thing, different marketing bullcrap.

The technical design of software definitely changes how it's used, what sort of uses become common (or uncommon), and hence what sort of people use (or don't use!) a platform

Working on a project with just HTML, css, jQuery, and PHP. It's insanely fast when you don't have to use a giant framework.

Weird thing is to I don't miss the "features" in Angular 2+.
