Controversial hot take: (Good) Electron apps are nowhere near as bad as the Apple community would have you believe. Apps like VS Code and Obsidian show they can be just as quick as their native counterparts.

noticed this "brag document" blog post I wrote going around again. I think a really nice way to do it is in a group of people who support each other during perf review season. Sometimes it's easier for someone else to see how great your work is!

Microsoft Edge Developer Tools will soon get a "Microfeedback" feature, that allows you to tell us if you like or dislike parts of it, and make it even easier to give feedback what we can do for you. Currently already in Canary.

I've had some special podcast guests lately. I encourage you to hear from @mekkacodes this week on the show. If you're a #CodeNewbie or you've been in software for years like Mekka, you'll enjoy hearing from her about how long you should stay at a job! hanselminutes.com/869/do-i-sta #podcast #tech

๐Ÿ‘‰ List can be sorted by sign-up date, so that you can find new accounts fast

Pro-tip - if you enable the "Advanced Web Interface" in Mastodon, you get a very TweetDeck-like experience ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ

The interesting thing I've seen about the fediverse is that you can't exert control. If you squeeze it, it just kind of squishes out the sides. We've got people here who want a Facebook experience, some want a Twitter experience, some want an experience like they've never seen before. Some want control. Some are anarchists and loathe control. There are people that get along and people that hate each other with a passion. They all tend to co-exist in this alphabet soup of projects and protocols; some which sort of work together and some that don't. Mastodon will eventually fit in, although they may stay in their own communities and refuse to venture out at night or beyond the network fence which separates them from the unwashed heathen masses. Right now they appear as a disruption in the force. The fediverse like the internet it sits on can handle disruption. If there's perceived damage, we will just route around the damage and carry on.

Who told the world that it's Mastodon vs Twitter? I mean, you don't have to choose, right?

Totally just wanna hackeysack right now

none of those dry humps in the secret service carries a sack, tho

Can't figure out if this is just a basic (distributed) version of Twitter.. or they are aiming to be more like Facebook eventually? I would say the former..
