I keep thinking about this AMA response from a cofounder of Wyze: "Would you rather have no ads or pay more for products?"

Broke: NOJIRA (commit has no associated ticket)
Woke: GOJIRA (commit stomps all over the repository seemingly at random but actually with good reason)

Serious pop music question: is "Kiss Me More" by Doja Cat riffing on "Physical" by Olivia Newton-John, or am I hearing things?

Yeah, launched a Beginner JavaScript text guide based on his video content course. All 15 chapters are free and available online, how awesome is that?

Game Zone here in Salem somehow has a Wario Land promo from the 90s and I am all about it!!

My partner just published her first article on CSS Tricks. It is heartfelt and wonderful

Idea: "The Young and the RESTful", a new daytime drama about API design

I've long admired Basecamp, but I think today's announcement is a step in the wrong direction.

Prohibiting political discussions makes it hard to talk about inequality. Banning committees means shutting down Basecamp's DEI committee. Not "dwelling on past decisions" sounds a lot like not taking feedback.

Metal Masters for Game Boy may only have one song, but that track is a certified banger!

Announcing Meme It So! It's a Star Trek The Next Generation Meme and GIF Generator, inspired by Frinkiac.
