How do you do cross-platform navigation? It looks like there are web-only components that don't work on native and vice versa. Is that right? And do the community maintained packages support web?

Stacey Abrams: "To watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in this state baldly pin his hopes for election on the suppression of the people’s democratic right to vote has been truly appalling. So let’s be clear: This is not a speech of concession." (via ABC)

I keep telling people this too. I meet anthropologists and artists who ask how I got into coding, thinking they couldn't possibly. But it's so much easier to go from anthropology/art/history to coding than the other way around. Enjoying it is another matter

And yet we just carry on as "normal". What will it take for us to change our ways?

Apparently it's a thing that can happen. I thought it was getting worse but turns out the issues I was having were due to my contacts being too strong now

Things that are easy to change are changed until they become hard to change

I wish the richest tech companies like Alibaba, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Samsung, etc. were using their vast profits to tackle climate change, pollution, and ecosystem loss

Today I found out that my eyesight has significantly improved over the last 4 years. I didn't even know that was possible

Google's lit-html puts CSS and HTML strings into JS. If you were opposed to CSS-in-JS before, how do you feel about it now?

DataCamp ported their mobile application to the web: reuses 90% of the frontend code from their React Native app and shares the same backend

Why do civilisations collapse? Not because they lack technology or expertise, but because the power of oligarchs blocks the necessary solutions. Will this happen to us? My column:

The AI paperclip maximizer thought experiment: "[AI] might transform…all of earth…into paperclip manufacturing facilities". This idea always fascinates me because it's presented as if we humans aren't already on this path via consumer capitalism

This Christmas advert has been banned from TV for being too political. I think what's happening to our rain forests should be banned for being criminal to life on earth. This needs to be the most viewed Christmas advert ever! Do your best Twitter!

Developing native apps is such a terrible experience compared to developing client-side web apps that it's obvious to me no one would choose to do this if the web platform let you make apps with comparable features and UX

Popular visions of the apocalypse focus on it being an easily-identifiable and irreversible "event" (nuclear exchange, asteroid impact, etc.) not a nebulous and reversible "process". We're living through the apocalypse-as-process and failing to respond in time

It's worth mentioning that if you want to use media queries to change styles and components, you can still do that from JS using the matchMedia API.

Similarly, the PWA's migration from CSS modules to React Native's flavour of styles in JavaScript was initiated after several months of experimentation produced neutral metrics. Experiments on your product are a great way to test ideas and assumptions

Yes initial load time increased significantly. But return visits were faster (thanks to SW) and load times between screens went down (thanks to data fetching) so people stayed longer and looked at more screens. The overall PWA experience was better than the SSR experience.
