Thought experiment in the wake of yet another Intel security flaw: If Mercedes sold a car based on performance and then realized that producing all that power created a huge safety problem and the car needed to be throttled by 30% what would consumers do? Just suck it up?

The 'community' newspaper is 8 pages of local news you can get online wrapped in 250 pages of ads and flyers. They drop it on my doorstep, I pick it up and throw it directly in the recycling bin. Why is this allowed to happen in 2019?

Building your own static site generator from scratch is trivial. I kept wrestling with Jekyll and then woke up and realized that I could just write a few simple functions to do exactly what I wanted. My node.js code is actually shorter than my old Jekyll config file.

Treat every hashtag like it’s part of an intimate psychological survey that’s going to be used at some point down the road by advertisers, governments and god knows who else to sort and trigger you.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you tweet can and will be used against you in a court of public opinion.
