The replies to this tweet sum up nicely why I favor Sanders over Warren (they're my clear #1 and #2). Note also the overwhelmingly constructive, earnest responses from Bernie supporters (many of them women and POC), and the OP's tone-deaf and reality-defying later tweets.

1. The point of reevaluating Obama isn't about Obama. It's about us, about whether we can honestly see what we have done to ourselves over the last forty years.

Several things need to be corrected here. First, Custom Elements are very much polyfillable. We have a polyfill that works great on browsers without native support. That's not the problem.

The more I use lit-html and htm the more convinced I am that they’re the right DX for template based frameworks - interpolation and nesting templates feels really natural, and it still feels like HTML. I don’t think JSX should be in the browser. Something like these, maybe.

People sometimes suggest I should calm down about web performance because the web feels fine on *their* phone. and I pulled a little data to try to visualise why that might be both true and not particularly relevant:

I'm curious to see whether 's clarifying question on the original tweet gets a response – "non-partisan" could mean "no parties" (seems bad) or "parties don't control the process" (seems good, to me)

It's only because we have an awful electoral system that voters have to consider "electability." We need a system that lets citizens express their preferences, with no strategic voting required.

Thanks for an unforgettable decade, webOS. (And thanks to for kicking off today's reflections!)

I finally moved on, but not before we'd brought a world-class, web-first experience to phones, tablets, TVs, watches and more. I still see and work with awesome webOS folks every day, and so many more are out there doing great things around the valley and around the world.

Within weeks, I'm working on webOS, and everything I've done in my career since then can be traced back to these fateful days. What a team, what amazing people, and what incredible times. I stayed with webOS through seven years and more hard left turns than I can count.

It's Jan, 2009. MSFT has decided to shut down the project I've been working on for most of the last 8 years, and I'm pretty bitter about it. Sitting at my desk, I catch a live stream of the Palm Pre announcement at CES, and within minutes I've applied for a job.
