I'm glad you noticed :) This is something I do very consistently across my projects: use the names of people I'm collaborating with in examples. I can't tell if people notice, but it feels nice to me to do it.

1) bootstrap is not garbage. 2) it was not created by "back-end" devs. 3) there's a long history of front-end engineers building JS components stretching back more than a decade (dojo, yui, jquery ui) this tweet is bullshit. it's ~*rude*~ and it's completely wrong on the facts.

I also think it's important to remember that while some parts of the far left occasionally thinks that they're going to shame their way, the wider left-leaning community is extremely open to discussion about all kinds of alleged "heterodoxies".

To be honest, while I found my experiences infuriating, I mostly agree with the structural critiques of the left. I find them especially compelling when talking about the ways in which some people are permitted to be far more aggressive and angry than others.

for context, I'm a person who had a terrible experience with the campus left.

no problems with: "it's a shame" I wasn't willfully misunderstanding though. Can we try not to read people's minds gratuitously in these conversations?

Shame is a weird emotion to have about this.

Node is how we got a nonstandard module system to begin with (script vs module), which also created a .js rift. TC39 standardizing modules is how we got a transition from non-standard modules to standard modules. Nobody should blame node for that, obviously.

Put another way: I think liberals (and even leftists) would be thrilled if the Republican Party was made up a bunch of Andrew Sullivans, and the Democratic Party actually is (sort of) made up of a bunch of Ezra Kleins.

You were too nice to say this to him directly, but the difference between the left and the right is that you're respected (and mainstream) on the left and his vision of conservatism has virtually no presence in the institutions of the right in American life.

It seems that his objection to the left is based on a belief that the campus and Twitter left is far more powerful than it actually is.

listened to your podcast interview with Sully this week. Is it just me or is he a fairly lefty Democrat working really hard to convince himself and others that he's part of the American right?

The JavaScript community loves creating huge community forks over tiny aesthetic differences.

What's the point of solving the problems introduced by mjs if we can just not use mjs?

This is a somewhat old debate at this point and you're reiterating arguments that many of us disagreed with as if they're self-evident. Would be happy to take this private 😀

I don't understand what hoops you're describing. Ember apps have used .js for modules for 5 years. It doesn't make sense to me to introduce churn into my ecosystem for these abstract reasons.

You're saying there wasn't aggressive marketing early on to the effect of "polymer is a polyfill for the future platform"?
