Kinda tempted by the Google Pixel... but I love being able to send and receive messages from my computer via iMessage (text messages included). Is there any way to do this w/ the Pixel?

I recommend this lecture by about her recent book Red Famine on Stalin's deliberate starvation of Ukraine in the 1932-33. Clear, insigthful and with apt parallels to the current Russian-Ukrainian relations. This is what history can do.

Incredible work here from the , and an (almost literal) illustration of how incredibly strange and dangerous the "influencer" economy is.

I use Yarn. Workspaces is cool and I like the little UI touches. Speed seems about the same between both these days.
