Thanks for the link. Just ordered one!

I recently received an Inkplate, and while Iโ€™m in the middle of a few interesting projects already, I couldnโ€™t let it sit there unused. Until I get a longer chunk of time to turn it into something really nifty โ€” maybe an embedded debugging helper of some kind โ€” it can at least mean I no longer need to have Mail.app open.

Leaving holier than thou comments on a 10 year old commit, when most of the commenters were probably not even alive when Todd started working on sudo. Grinds my gears!

This is not a feature request, more an idea.

I would suggest to hide likes/dislikes as an experiment. You might still want to notify users (even though this could be a setting).

My rationale being is that the whole like/subscriber count is part whatโ€™s wrong with social networks. Why not make the whole thing ephemeral. If somebody likes something I posted, send a quick notification, but donโ€™t persist it and donโ€™t show it.

This is an amazing piece. Thanks for sharing. The whole banning and deplatforming of Trump and his mob will backfire spectacularly in my opinion. Itโ€™s also quite interesting that they all seem to have been growing a spine just when it became quite unlikely for Trump to be able to punish them in the short time heโ€™s got left as president. Where were the good people of Twitter, Facebook, etc. when he repeatedly crossed the line over those past four years?

We were promised the Internet would be better than democracy. But then it got privatized. Corporations own it. There is no online bill of rights. There is only the frenzy of the mob and fickle choices of a few billionaires.

@dmje that auto-reply by @swearbot is gold :)

Sam Harris (as ever) being highly eloquent about the recent insurrection, the irony of comparisons to BLM and the state of US democracy. He also touches on how meditation and an examined life fits into a bigger picture of democratic and political thinking.

Well worth a listen.

@root I second inline images for longer posts.

Trying out various markdown-related things. Does an inline link work?

What about an inline image? Goofy

Will probably get rid of inline images. They seem unnecessary…

Not sure if this is a bug, but creating a link Markdown style like…

foo

…doesnโ€™t seem to work.
