Intent has nothing to do with it. The point of propaganda is to make people believe that a lie is a reasonable truth, precisely so that it can be spread regardless of individual intent or understanding of the consequences.

Zuckerberg should rethink this. The false equivalence is absurd. Posting Holocaust and global warming denial is not simply "getting it wrong", it's spreading extremist propaganda designed to undermine historical and scientific reality

Why this image isn't on the front page of every newspaper in the world, I'll never understand. We keep ignoring the biggest story in the world .

The New Anthropology Paradox. 1. Non-anthropologists will write a lot of bad cultural commentary and call it anthropology - and become famous public scholars. 2. Actual anthropologists have to call their work something other than anthropology so they don't get dismissed.

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

"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

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!
