It's worth re-iterating that other countries dealing with their own migrant crises rarely if ever separate families. This is a needless act of cruelty.

The separation of children from their families at the border is immoral, and creates shocking scenes such as a three-year-old having to pick which parent to stay with, while the other is deported.

Current status: motoring between Orcas and San Juan Islands, thanks to early FB employees.

The story behind that was kind of interesting. I'm sure you read the NYT piece about it.

If I thought all bluechecks were nitwits, I wouldn't have been redundant in my tweet.

Both can be true: There should be some regulation in place for US firms. Europe is largely incapable of creating global tech giants, and thus seeks to diminish their local influence via regulation.

The existential despair of reading the Smithsonian's excellent dinosaur encyclopedia to your child, and realizing that all of human life pales in comparison to the 56 million years of the Jurassic and that nothing matters.

Just saw 'Apollo 11' and this really filled in details, plus tied the mission together with all the other interesting things going on in tech at the time. Bravo.

That really is a superlative narrative about those tense few minutes.

If we could power our homes, businesses, and vehicles with outrage, we'd be zero emissions in under a year.

It's implied mentioning Armstrong's heartrate hit 150, but would be easy to miss the details. Another example is the long seconds of silence following re-entry, when mission control didn't know if they'd just burned up, and the capsule wouldn't respond to hailing.

Yeah, if there's one criticism, I'd say that they so try to recreate the minute-by-minute, they miss out on some of the explanatory context, thus diminishing the drama. For example, without knowing the story of the flight, might not realize how desperate the final landing was.

Feature request: A Nuclear Block Button that takes a QTer as target, and then blocks everyone that follows them (perhaps with a warning list of people who follow you as well, in case there's overlap) so that entire sub-graph is just now deleted from your network.

'Hurt people hurt people' as the saying goes. There are so many lonely, frustrated people these days, with no outlet for their dissatisfactions other than the ersatz social-media copy of community, it's like this ever-present heat bath of human anger just sitting there.

Evergreen tweet. Reminded of this just now when I had to go on a block rampage, followed by just deleting a tweet, as some nitwit bluecheck QT'ed my tweet out of context, making a procession of dumb, angry minions appear.
