Coparent, exasperated: "Do NOT pull stupid shit like that while we are crossing the street!"
Child, incensed: "Mom! You said a bad word! You said 'stupid'."

@mheiber Thanks for sharing. Looks like a transparent clickbait hit piece from someone who works for a (would-be?) competitor. I'm no Jenkins fan, but I'd rather hear from someone more impartial.

I am apparently now so old/unhip/out-of-touch that even *AFTER* consulting knowyourmeme, I'm still unable to comprehend wtf is going on.

Really enjoying this new puzzle game:

Is a paragraph is missing in this NYT piece?
nytimes.com/2019/01/11/us/poli
Usually, an NYT leak piece starts with "$thing happpened, according to people familiar with it who asked not to be named for $reasons". Not so here.
In para #4, it goes "[more stuff], the people said... [even more stuff], the people said". What people? The other "people" uses are #16, "... according to the people familiar with the inquiry," and
#21, "according to people familiar with their thinking."

#Manyverse is an Android app for the #Scuttlebutt social network:

manyver.se

Unlike traditional social networks, Scuttlebutt has no servers. Members store all their personal data on their own computer or phone, and connect directly to their friends' devices in order to update statuses. Scuttlebutt also works offline.

It's currently available on @fdroidorg and Google Play. (Note it's still in beta and many features are missing.)
