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."

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.

1/ Like many, I woke up to this today. Struck by so many saying matter of time, expected (esp FB login)… Responding to major, potentially existential, incidents (quality, security, privacy, abuse) as large org is unique. Thoughts on living through and coming out the other side.

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.

Matthew Green@matthew_d_green
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…

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👇

Charles Nutter@headius
Java is having trouble fitting into serverless because Java (EE) *was* "serverless"; deploy functions that call into opaque service APIs and rely on some container to scale and replicate everything. It would be interesting to see a cloud-native Java container that has no edges.

Ever plug your phone into an arbitrary charger around the office or at an airport? Our #usesec18 paper shows that we can easily bypass most #android lock screens and then do pretty much whatever we want using old-school AT commands. Patch, then check out our work! #infosec
