I'm starting The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi. I really liked his Old Man's War series, so I'm looking forward to this one. I'm on chapter two and getting some Dune vibes with an interplanetary empire controlled by a balance of political and religious parties and mercantile houses in a feudal system.

I know when people spend years making something artistic, they pour themselves into it and want it to succeed regardless of how they feel about the process. So, it's kind of sad that the ruined launch is a depressing finale to years of hard work for the team, but I wonder if game publishers/developers will finally realize that crunch doesn't work.

Bookmarked: lucide-icons/lucide: Simply beautiful open source icons, community-sourced

Simply beautiful open source icons, community-sourced - lucide-icons/lucide

Saving this for later. It's a fork of Feather Icons, which is the icon set I'm using across all my personal projects. I like Feather because its just an SVG file that I can use without any javascript or build step, but is lacking a few obvious icons. Adding other icons seems to be the focus of this fork, so I want to keep an eye on it.

Bookmarked: EU warns that it may break up Big Tech companies | Ars Technica

Repeat offenses under new rules will trigger action to force divestments.

I don't think breaking companies up is the way to go, but at least Europe is doing something, I guess. I'm more in favor of what the MEP quoted in the article, Paul Tang, said. Go after their business model; restrict what they're allowed to do. That curtails the current giants and prevents future companies from becoming an issue

Ugh, #Mozilla rolled out their new docs platform and I'm not a fan. I'm getting a mobile view on a window that's 1090px wide, which is ridiculous. And there's still no dark mode and you have to use Github to interact with it. This is a big regression. Their website says they want to "support a healthy internet" and you don't do that by forcing people onto a centralized platform and making harder to use the main source of documentation for web standards.
