I'm not persuaded that anyone killed Epstein but Epstein.
It still raises a lot of questions about who communicated what to him preceding this and how basic safeguards seem to have gone out the window despite the notoriety and importance of the prisoner, previous apparent attempt, propensity of accused pederasts to suicide, release of documents the day before, etc.
BTW I definitely see performance as an issue of access. If the CEO, the investors, and the developers are all using beefy desktops on fast connections, then they'll never notice what their less fortunate customers are experiencing on a hand-me-down Android phone or a busted laptop with a HDD. It's easy to miss performance problems if you're not paying attention to users with less money than you.
I wonder if one reason more websites aren't accessible/performant is because of the underlying business model. If investors are always screaming at you about growth, then you'll focus on feature, features, features, to the detriment of less salient virtues like performance, accessibility, security, etc.

One of the many things I find utterly revolting about the whole "trade sanctions affecting Microsoft GitHub-using small developers" is how somehow those trade sanctions can apparently be enforced against a small-time dev from Crimea, but magically enforcement becomes impossible when we're talking about NSO Group and other cyberarms peddlers selling to regimes and not even hiding with it.
I saw a question somewhere the other day from someone saying something like "my multiple Electron apps use a lot of resources, is it possible to use just one shared runtime to handle them all?" and I just yelled at the screen "IT'S CALLED A WEB BROWSER YOU FUCKING DICKHEAD" but I don't think they heard me.
for every quotable 'feel good' comment by ESR on FOSS/Open-Source there is a feel-bad comment about, oh, white supremacy wrt programming, the tech feminist cabal to destroy Linus, how homosexuals are generally pedophiles, etc. stop quoting him.
We're so fucked. #UKPol
I often can't help but think that for all of their public admiration of Nordic socialism, most social media baby-communists would respond to its actual practice with self-righteous fury.
(The bedrock of Nordic socialism is negotiation and compromise backed by collective action if necessary. Twitter Marxists approve of only one of those three things at best.)
NPM’s ceo was successfully trolled by *hand puppets*.
I’ll stop laughing about this some day, I swear.
The Chrome team is already behaving as if they own the web, railroading the process for a UI term I hadn't even heard of until an hour ago.
