Intolerable - Jeremy Keith

Spot-on about that ex-googler's "manifesto" and its layers of reasonability around an intolerable core.

(…) It may seem odd that a document that appears to be so reasonable is proving to be so very divisive. But it’s that very appearance of impartiality that gives it its power. It is like an optical illusion for the mind. Some people—like me—read it and think, “this is clearly wrong and harmful.” Other people—who would never self-identify as sexist in any way—read it and think, “seems legit.” I’m almost—almost—glad that it was written. It’s bringing a lot of buried biases into the light.(…)

The Trooper - Steve'n'Seagulls

Wer hätte gedacht, dass Iron Maiden eigentlich Hillbilly County Bluegrass Songs macht? Der NWOBHM Hoppelrhythmus kam mir ja schon immer ein bisschen komisch vor, aber nach dieser (Cover)version frage ich mich, ob das nicht die eigentliche Seele des Songs ist. Yeehah.

Why You Should Fly Under The Radar When Booking A Trip - Mozilla Blog

To start, if you use the web to find cheap flights, you might notice an uptick in web ads for the routes you just searched for. These results aren’t just influenced by what you look up and buy online, but include related sites—even online publications where you get your news and celebrity gossip.
Some e-commerce sites have even been caught displaying different prices to different customers based on a variety of potential factors, including one’s browsing history. Believe it or not, the rabbit hole goes deeper—the device that you’re using to search the web can influence results that come

Resolving CSS Gridlock - Matthias Ott

Very good thoughts on the state of our ever evolving playfield and how to yield the power that CSS-grid can bring –– in times when there still are old processes, browsers and mindsets around.

[…] Just because people can use CSS Grid theoretically doesn’t mean they will actually use it in practice, especially if this involves writing layout code twice and with an already established method out there […] It's another manifestation of the huge shift we see in contemporary web design: the decision making largely happens in development, at the end of the good old waterfall and

Flash and the future of interactive content - Adobe

Adobe has announced that they will end support for Flash in 2020.

Several industries and businesses have been built around Flash technology – including gaming, education and video – and we remain committed to supporting Flash through 2020, as customers and partners put their migration plans into place. Adobe will continue to support Flash on a number of major OSs and browsers that currently support Flash content through the planned EOL. This will include issuing regular security patches, maintaining OS and browser compatibility and adding features and capabilities as needed. We remain fully committed to working with partners,

Big Thief - NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Hallo Sonntag,

hier ist eine Band zum Verlieben:

Big Thief - zum ersten Mal sind die mir vor ein paar Wochen auf BBC Radio6 Music aufgefallen - die Single 'Shark Smile' lief da ziemlich heftig rauf und runter, und wie ich finde zurecht.

Und vorhin habe ich sie in den Links drüben beim René wiedergefunden (zusammen mit noch anderen Perlen, danke dafür) und ja, das ist die nächste Vinylplatte in meinem Schrank. <3

Chester Bennington

Verdammt. Chester Bennington ist tot. Offenbar Selbstmord, mit 41.

Wer ihn "nur" als Brüllwürfel bei Linkin Park wahrgenommen hat, sollte sich das obige Video mehrfach ansehen und dann darüber trauern, was für ein Talent da gestern ausgelöscht wurde.

Warum sich jemand selbst das Leben nimmt, kann "von aussen" niemand nachvollziehen. Menschen, die vermeindlich alles haben, Beziehung, Talent, Kinder, Geld, Anerkennung -- ich kann das nicht verstehen und ich bin froh darüber, da so ignorant zu sein und noch nicht in den dunklen Abgrund von Depression geschaut zu haben.

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave

Fuck it, ship it. :-)

We are Team Internet

This is a battle for the Internet's future.
On July 12, 2017, thousands of us are protesting to defend Internet freedom. (…) The FCC's Open Internet Rules (net neutrality rules) are extremely important to me. I urge you to protect them.
I don't want ISPs to have the power to block websites, slow them down, give some sites an advantage over others, or split the Internet into "fast lanes" for companies that pay and "slow lanes" for the rest.

Now is not the time to let giant ISPs censor what we see and do online.(...)
