Yes. I understand why huge podcast companies want more listener data, but there are zero advantages for listeners or app-makers. I won’t be supporting any listener-behavior tracking specs in Overcast. Podcasters get enough data from your IP address when you download episodes.

+@marcoarment is the RAD thing NPR has announced the sort of thing you’ve said you don’t want in podcasting, ie. sneaky tracking stuff?

Switched from the Facebook app to the website. The web animations are disappointing. The app has pleasing, smooth animations; the website lacks some animations altogether, and in other places they're jittery. Are web animations a lot harder, or is it a matter of investment?

It's dowright amazing how much you can fit into 100k min+gzipped if you start with a minimalist toolkit and you're conscious about size the whole time.

After building my first custom Lambda runtime, it's safe to say AWS hit a home run, the Lambda Runtime API is a game changer.

One of the interesting things about AWS Firecracker is that it is (one of?) the first OSS projects *originated* by AWS. It will be interesting to see how outside contributions and community are curated. Some comments after a 2 minute look at the repo/docs:

The JS community has done a lot to rubbish the value of HTML and CSS and it has not been a good thing for users or developers.

This thread is giving me a lot of feels. I learned HTML/CSS so I could make simple fan sites and edit LiveJournal. It was incredibly fun. I was one of the only kids in my friends group doing it. By the time I reached college this wasn't "real programming."

Here are the absolute values in kilocalories, showing that our fat intake never declined in the US. Today, we eat similar amounts of fat and carbohydrate, whereas a century ago we ate nearly twice as much carbohydrate as fat.

Memo to the genius leaking info about Crystal City, VA as #HQ2 selection. You’re not doing Crystal City, VA any favors. And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin.

So I was invited to speak at Google about "the elite charade of changing the world." 👀 I decided to bring up the topic no one wanted to discuss: Google being a monopoly that may need to be broken up. That's when it got awkward. youtu.be/d_zt3kGW1NM

Now that Google+ has been shuttered, I should air my dirty laundry on how awful the project and exec team was. I'm still pissed about the bait and switch they pulled by telling me I'd be working on Chrome, then putting me on this god forsaken piece of shit on day one.

There's a reason people are reacting to Chrome like this. This isn't an overreaction over one single event. It's a delayed reaction to a pattern of bad behavior. It's contextualized by the very messed-up power dynamic between Google and the open Web.

I’m still annoyed that Chrome has gone to mandatory Google login — exactly the same way Android did (and has received enormous criticism for) — and people at Google are acting like they’re surprised people are upset.

Would you pay for @brave instead of YouTube Red? Would you use Brave if you got paid for your attention (default flowing to your favorite creators)? HN commenter seems to want it both ways. Faulty logic aside, who would pay to block ads, as we do already? news.ycombinator.com/item?id=180286…
