In the wake of the racist, misogynistic, homophobic, climate change denying, literal fascist that has just been elected in Brazil, it's important to remain positive. So read this. yw greenpeace.org/international/s

Planted about a thousand new acorns across this patch of recovering forest on Lonscale Fell with the Woodland Trust. Here's hoping a few of them make it!

Ludicrously amazing developments in the land of @elmlang@twitter.com when it comes to optimisation. Hat tip to @czaplic@twitter.com and the team. This is a big web sustainability win too. elm-lang.org/blog/small-assets

Mozilla posted a brief intro to variable fonts at hacks.mozilla.org/2018/09/vari and you can see some in action at v-fonts.com/
