2050: The Fight For Earth - Bill McKibben | time.com

How the earth would look in 2050 if we solved climate change - What if the US came around and acted swiftly on climate change? [wbr-quote cite="https://time.com/5669022/climate-change-2050/"](…) For one thing, the cuts in emissions that scientists prescribed were almost impossibly deep. “If you’d started in 1990 when we first warned you, the job was manageable:...

Simplicity (II) - Bastian Allgeier

Bastian reflects on a topic that's very close to (my) home -- the supposedly unavoidable Tooliganismn that is involved with working on the "modern" web. [wbr-quote cite="https://bastianallgeier.com/notes/simplicity-part-2"]There are two eras of those projects: pre-built-process and and post-build-process. Whenever there's no package.json I know it's going to be a good day. Whenever there's one, Pandora is...

React - Charlie Owen

Please read this post on why there's not only a problem with this popular JS framework, but how it actually hurts 'the web' (that was, as Charlie put it). [wbr-quote cite="https://www.sonniesedge.net/posts/react/"]Big Corporates twirled their non-existent mustaches and realized that it's easier to train people to use to work on a factory production line, learning a...

You Pay (Or Maybe You Don’t) - Heydon Pickering

[wbr-quote cite="https://every-layout.dev/blog/you-pay/"]Some people can afford to work for nothing: people who have already accumulated lots of capital, for example, or are subsidized by their families. For them, “exposure” alone may be enough motivation. But it’s important they do charge for their work anyway. Why? Because the more people work for free, the less perceived value...

The Web Has Turned …

The web has turned and left me here Just where I was before it appeared And in its place an empty space Has filled the void behind my face I just made love with its sweet memory One thousand times in my head it said it loved it more than ever it said it remains...

They don't build them like they used to

Hey, manufacturers of things that have plastic parts, what's going on? I have an old, but well-kept AKG K518LE headphone and suddenly all the matte plastic parts on the headphone are turning into a sticky gooey mess. I have a Wacom tablet and the Intuos pen had the same issue - the grip area turned...

WordPress filter for lazy loading src

Chris Coyier (@css) has shared a code snippet that will add loading="lazy" to every scr=" instance in WordPress's content. But this will replace every instance, not only in img or iframe tags, which can lead to some unwanted replacements. Here's my version for that filter: // in theme’s functions.php or a plugin function wbr_add_lazy_loading($content){ $content...

A quick note to my past-self

If there’s one thing that now-me would urgently tell past-me, when starting this whole self-employed business, it is this: Beware of „cost“ focussed clients, seek the „investment“ minded ones. Adapt your communication accordingly. If your services are seen only as „cost“, no fruitful and growing relation will come out of it - and with those...
