Oldest millennial is now 39 years old & did u know that our group owns only 3% of the totally wealth vs the boomers during the same age owned 21% of total.

I'm currently busy rewriting large parts of the UI layer of Converse.js to use web components via #LitElement.
Very impressed so far with the rendering speed of lit-html.

Still going strong 💪

That will be a perfect opportunity to get your loved ones on XMPP and try out the new video calls.
Back in the 90s, my friend and I would listen to his dad's CD of "The Wall" by Pink Floyd.
I really like this Synthwave rendition of "Another brick in the wall".
The worse the real economic data gets the more absurd stock valuations look.
This continued fanatical attempt to save stocks against all reality is making a mockery of the global financial system.
