Welp, time for some RICE Show more
I strained my leg playing tag (aka "gotchu") with Rowan outside the grocery store.
At least it was after a day at the pool and 10 hours at the county fair the day before.
Before I go off to celebrate Midsummer by being in bed sick (Swedish woes), I want to share a small update.
#Tusky will keep blocking servers which actively promote fascism. This in particular means Gab.
We will get our next release out just in time for the 4th of July.
Don't even try to debate us about Free Speech. This is our speech, exercising #ANTIFA views. And we will keep doing it
We will post a bigger update at a later time about what this all really means.
An exciting announcement, solarpunk Show more
I've been keeping quiet about this, but I can finally share!
My friend and I are officially contracted for a book from the West Virginia University Press's series Salvaging the Anthropocene. Our book, Almanac for the Anthropocene: A Compendium of Solarpunk Futures, will focus primarily on collecting practical, substantive applications of #solarpunk thought. And we are currently accepting submissions/pitches!
"Performance perception: correlation to RUM metrics" by Gilles Dubuc https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/phame/post/view/167/performance_perception_correlation_to_rum_metrics/
Wikipedia did a large-scale study of perceived performance, and found that none of the existing web APIs had a strong correlation with how fast or slow users thought the page was. Yikes.
Oh wow. So that really famous centralized vs decentralized vs distributed diagram that I quote above? Well, in one of the companion papers, Baran provides this iteration on it, which in my opinion is far superior and I'm going to start using in my presentations.
Trump, moon Show more
Come on people! There are an ever increasing number of things to be upset with Trump about but the "including Mars (of which the Moon is a part)" isn't it!
Obviously he knows that going to the Moon is a part of going to Mars. As it is! That was what he meant in that tweet.
Is he generally ill-informed? Of course! Does he think our Moon orbits Mars? No! Don't be stupid and make a big deal out of something that's not.
Hashtag resistance, amirite?
google, chat Show more
I have the new google chat open as a pinned tab (ugh, I know, and ugh) in Firefox.
Every so often (aka: when I actually need to use it, once or twice a week) it notifies me with "a new version of Chat is available, please refresh".
