The role of WhatsApp in Indian elections. Some fears that the Facebook owned messaging app provides an unfiltered platform for fake news and religious hatred, could be a potential challenge to democracy.

I wish it were more viable to disable issues on GitHub for libraries. I sometimes want "closed" to be the default issue state and then maintainers could review and promote an issue to "open" as needed.

OMFG on desktop is 🔥. I think this is a very strong case to switch to React Native for Web. Awesome work ! Wish it was open source so we could review, but taking hints using devtools is better than nothing.

why don't you just have a bot visit every screen in your app and all the user flows and take screenshots at every step and visually diff the pixels before you commit that one line change to a non-deterministic-place-oriented-composition file

What is this element's background color? <style>.a { height: 50px; background: red }</style> <div class="a">.</div> The answer is "I don't know, it depends on all the other HTML and CSS".

"Growth mindset" doesn't mean giving up critical thought or saying "yes" to everything. As has been said before, the idea is to keep an open mind but not so open that it contains nothing at all.

The case for compassion over empathy. Furthermore, if you're unfamiliar with another person's frame of reference, rather than empathy helping you to understand or feel what they experience you may end up projecting your own assumptions.

I just write React now. I don't think I've created a new CSS file for about 3 years. Or used DOM representations more than a few times (outside of developing frameworks). And I've never been able to more easily create, combine, and share high-quality UIs for the web

STS theory & research, in part, inspired me to join Twitter a few years later. Some scientists viewed STS as an attack on science, and I think some technologists either viewed it the same way or ignored it. (See: "Do you believe in reality?" .)

What is causing emissions to change? * China (28% of global CO₂): plateau in last few years, but rising again? * United States (15%) & EU28 (10%): Emissions have stopped declining * India (7%): sustained 5+%/yr * Rest of world (40%): onwards and upwards!
