Can this be true? At the very point when its guidance needs to be utterly reliable, the CDC puts out this nonsense? Someone please tell me this is a cruel joke. ⁦@CDCgov#bafflegab #doublespeak #claptrap #baloney #gobbledygook #twaddle #poppycock #gibberish #pishposh

I love maps & their promise of fractal discovery. I love procedural generation and the aesthetics of the unauthored. Where do these two loves intersect? Generated maps. I am the procgen map admirer. These are my favorite map generators and the folks who create them. 👇THREAD👇

Data structures question! How would you find the *depth* of a particular string inside this array? some result examples: getDepth('block-1') => 0 getDepth('block-2') => 1 getDepth('block-4') => 2 How would you implement getDepth??

I find myself confused by the outrage here. I'm not being disingenuous – I honestly want to understand the thinking:

Anyone else on Cloudflare or Linode seeing increased latency and inexplicable timeouts since around May 1? They don’t map to significant changes in server load. Requests just occasionally time out for no apparent reason. Retry and they load normally. (info from Pingdom)

Web Components people know that you can use semantic HTML5 with JS frameworks right? I hear a lot of disingenuous strawman arguments against "div-itis". Maybe spend less time complaining and more time teaching. You're not making this industry any more welcoming to beginners.

Sad to see that @pocketcasts, my favourite podcast player, is in trouble: losing money by the fistful and up for sale. I'm genuinely wondering what's next for it.
Pocket Casts for sale: where did it go wrong?
I love Pocket Casts. But as it loses millions and puts itself up for sale, who would buy into it?

I was at Amzn in 2000 when the internet bubble popped. Capital markets dried up & we were burning $1B/yr. Our biggest expense was datacenter -> expensive Sun servers. We spent a year ripping out Sun & replacing with HP/Linux, which formed the foundation for AWS. The backstory:

Thanks to @cramforce's post, went down a rabbit hole to get blurry img previews but avoid layout re-raster and the SVG document costs. Solution only needed CSS `filter`, modern `background`, & 11ty pre-build magic. Also, animates, e.g. (scroll down):
Election Season 2020, W3C TAG Edition - Infrequently Noted
It's TAG election time again, and among a packed field, a few candidates stand out. If you've benefited from the way the TAG has become a functional and important part of the W3C and broader web ecosystem process in the past several years, I heartily recommend devoting your AC rep's first place vote to Jeffrey Yasskin.

Shihab (JPEGuin)@JPEGuin
A lot of App Store users assume that indie devs make a lot of money, and whilst this may be true for many, it isn’t a fact for most. For instance, I’ve made roughly £25 across this past month. I think indie developers need to be transparent where possible.

Getting multiple reports of ad-blocking VPNs or other network-wide ad blockers causing failed downloads for @NPR podcasts (and possibly others). I’m still looking into specifics, but in every case of reported @NPR download trouble recently, disabling ad blockers has fixed it.
