Spotify’s ad tech will continue to expand, but it will only affect podcasts if you listen to them in Spotify.

Keep using independent podcast apps, and the surveillance abilities by large podcast publishers will remain extremely limited. twitter.com/NathanBLawrence/st

hot parenting tip: if your kid talks about wanting some big piece of professional software—Logic, After Effects, Photoshop—the returns on it are probably 100x what you’d get from piano lessons or whatever.

Software devs: Dealing with people’s names is difficult. Don’t accidentally attack your users this way.

@lyft Just got an e-mail from you asking me to update my display name by 12/21 because it doesn’t “doesn't align with our Community Guidelines”.

My display name is my actual name. I think you can see how it would have been automatically flagged.

What should I do?

I was fired last week by Google for organizing. All I did was make a popup to share the labor notice Google has to share with its workers.

3 hours later mgmt came to my desk, took my phone/laptop, escorted me away. I never got to say goodbye.

A few years ago, I crowdfunded and published "The Essential Guide to Shenzhen". It's now out of stock, so I've decided to share the PDF.

Thank you to all my supporters who made this possible!

Building a project that hadn't been touched in a year. Updated NDK was causing a problem with the old gradle. Update that, and there were problems in the project gradle file, Fix that, and there were deprecations in VrApi. Build issues suck the joy out of programming for me.
