Remember to give yourself some free time and space when you can. It's good for the soul. Also remember that there are people who enable you that free time, and repay the gift in kind. It's good for everyone's soul.

You've heard about web 3 now get ready for 

Web 3.11 for workgroups

There's Electron of course. I like the idea because then that's really accessible to many devs, and the perf issues in the situation I'm thinking about wouldn't be so bad. However, taking on the security model of a pseudo-browser for a local-only app feels like the wrong move.

It's also a bit tricky because I may not be the person maintaining it or building it up long-term. So dumping a new ecosystem & language onto a team may not be the best call.

I've been looking into making native-ish apps instead of web apps for potential upcoming projects. Ideal setup is a declarative setup with simple Elm-architecture like state management. Prefer it to be flexible on what editors and tooling is available.

Flutter so far seems like one of the better options, though I love the look of Fabulous. Lots of research to be done though.

NFTs, Web3, DeFi, ETH, blockchain. I don't even know what any of it is! 

I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out what I'm looking at. I just keep getting more lost. I guess NFT's are special tokens made on the Etherium blockchain to represent assets as digital things. Kinda like deeds IRL?

Think I'm a lot happier not worrying about this stuff.

NFTs. I don't even know what they are! 

Seriously I have no idea what it is, but this made me laugh anyway:

A possible unintended side effect of using native built binaries for Typescript is now your build systems required pulling in different packages depending on it's environment.

Often this isn't a visible issue for projects because their build system/CI env will always restore packages every build. If not though, it gets tricky to manage.

TV Network Refuses To Air ‘Miracle On 34th Street’ For Outdated Depictions Of Hope, Joy

Just did some year-end giving to:

- #Mozilla, because without them we wouldn't have an independent browser
- #Babel, because without them we wouldn't be able to use the latest JavaScript
- #Ruby, because without it we wouldn't have a mainstream fully object-oriented dynamic language

(Please feel free to nitpick these assessments, but please also do year-end giving to orgs you support)

Verizon Spyware

Verizon's just turned on something they call "Custom Experience", which is tracking everything you do over their connection.

So you want to go into your account, and you'll have to do this on the web because the mobile site just dumps you back to home page, and then Privacy Settings and disable every last switch in there.
