do you ever think about how google made a really good RSS reader, waited for everyone to switch to it, and then killed it, basically killing RSS

I'm always puzzled that Olympic medal counts are cited in absolute numbers. Surely it's expected that China and the US will always win most medals, given their population.

So for #Tokyo2020 β€” mostly for myself β€” I'll update every evening the top countries in medals per capita

#OpenStreetMap Belgium’s Mapper of the Month #MotM goes all the way to Thailand to introduce Mishari Muqbil:

I like to improve #OpenStreetMap while talking a walk using #StreetComplete and #OsmGo!

After a while though there's not much to add. Thus I tend to add small details like trees and street cabinets. However I wonder if that is even useful or helpful to anyone..

Question about how you answer security questions

Throwback from April 2015: see those appendages on the map?

Usually it's a "bookmark" for me to go collect GPS tracks over said area again.

High-resolution Bing imagery was still not available yet on this area.

Here's how the area looks today:

What if I told you there was a bitmap #font that:

Came in three weights
Is friendly for traditional 8x8 spritesheets
Provides 2 sets of upper and lower case letters each weight
Has small caps (as a result of the previous one)
Has alternate characters

I might work on it a little more, but I'm putting it in the public domain so anyone is free to use it as it is right now. (Unlike most bitmap fonts so far, I've worked on this one for much longer than a day.)

When you write hashtags, remember to use CamelCase (where each word has a capital letter).

This makes it much easier for blind and partially-sighted people's screen reader apps to read the hashtag out loud, and makes your message much more accessible.

For example #DogsOfMastodon is easier for a screen reader to say out loud than #dogsofmastodon, as CamelCase makes it obvious where the words are.
