Incidentally, if you haven’t read it, @rtraister’s profile of Warren’s teaching life is a real inspiration. The bit about her Republican former students not wanting to talk about her because they only had good things to say killed me. thecut.com/2019/08/elizabeth-w

One of the things I really dislike about StackOverflow is when people come along and tag your question as a duplicate of another question that only has superficial similarity to the question you asked (like they both mention the same exception).

It feels so passive aggressive and there is no way to remedy the situation. No way to challenge the assertion that it's a duplicate and point out how the answers to those supposedly identical questions don't answer your question.

Just a reminder that you're not a feminist if you think you get to decide who's a woman and who's not.

TOOL's catalog has been on Spotify for fewer than two weeks and they've already got 3.5M monthly listeners. I kinda wish I still worked there so I could look more into that play data.

It is gradually becoming the case that the only t-shirts I own are They Might Be Giants t-shirts.

Great read: "What the Superhuman Controversy Reveals About the Shifting Ethics of Software - The e-mail startup isn’t the only company learning that a product can be powerful and elegant without being good."


Today I discovered that I can bring my own container to the coffee shop where I buy coffee beans and have them fill it, rather than taking home a bag that ultimately ends up in the landfill. This has made me ridiculously happy, considering what a small thing it is.
