- if you tell the user that something has happened, saved, or worked, and it has not, you owe them money - the user's time is not yours; wasting it is unacceptable. this means you must both make the product easy to learn and easy to customize, automate, and accelerate 🧡

Setting up my new work Mac I was absolutely bewildered to discover that Apple required me to add a payment card before I could use the app store. Like, what the fuck
imagine being thinking that devices which require a current payment method configured to install software of any kind are in any fucking way acceptable

It turns out that building an open platform actually is a bad idea because people will use the most closed platform and build for open platforms from it, just because they have to if they want to be cross platform

It's easier to build from a Mac to a Linux server than from Linux to Mac or an iPhone, so cross platform devs have no choice but to have at least one Mac - so they may as well use it.

The fact that people online can rapidly accept "bones/no bones" as a framework for understanding the energy of the day without further explanation really reinforces that society empathizes with animals more than disabled + neurodivergent folks. 🀷

I just want playing with my computer to feel fun again. I don't want to be exhausted every time I think about writing software. I want it to be something I look forward to.

This might be 1 of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Even if the content of the film is nothing revolutionary to simply recover a pioneering queer film from the Nazi’s pyre is a triumph of world history holy shit
AMAZING NEWS!! Magnus Hirschfeld’s Gesetze der Liebe (Laws of Love), one of the first pro-queer films in history, has been found and restored! It was thought lost to Nazi raids, but soon we’ll be able to see it in all its glory. xtramagazine.com/culture/tv-…

"haha yeah I want to use Linux but it's so nice to have access to all this compatible software" yeah bro imagine not having access to important stuff on a platform like I dunno, _being allowed to install software at all_

like... i dunno, i respect a lot of people who work at apple and like all megacorps they do a lot of positive things by accident but the whole "we own our devices even after you buy them, fuck you if you want to use them" thing is unconscionable and a net negative for humanity

this goes for Microsoft as well but I am less annoyed by them because they are not actively antagonistic to people who want to install alternative operating systems. yet.

either have a large market share or refuse to handle edge cases. you have to pick one. otherwise you're actively harming people, knowingly, for profit.

quick tip: if your recruitment e-mails specifies "paternity leave" when "parental leave" is _right there_, i am not going to apply for your team, because you almost certainly employ only men. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
