Another good explanation of how the web is exactly what its supposed to be, warts and all.
I poked at a tweet from Ken Kocienda over the weekend: https://twitter.com/chriscoyier/status/1355689687428415490 I don't know Ken, so I feel a little bad
Thank you Chris for summing up the ridiculousness of this argument. The web has issues, but no other platform has the capability, resilience, and potential it has.
searchmysite.net is a bootstrapped side-project, so currently receives no external funding. This post contains a quick review of current and expected future running costs, along with a summary of the plan to pay these running costs.
I’ve told this story at conferences – but due to the general situation I thought I’d retell it here. A few years ago I was doing policy research in a housing benefits office in Lo…
This is why I push back when people complain about how bad the web is, how we need to trash it and start over.
The argument which is then made (and acknowledged by the FAQ) is: why not just use a subset of HTTP? It seems the answer boils down to enforcement. I don't see why this is a problem though, because people need to force themselves to use Gemini clients.
This is one of my biggest frustrations with Gemini. There's no reason all of the development that is going into it couldn't happen in the Web space. You could build your own tiny browser that work with a subset of the web. Other people could build really basic, text-only sites for your browser's users to visit, and they would still be available for anyone else using other browsers. Building Gemini servers/sites is just a lot of work to build another niche silo.
Xbox Live Gold is no longer going up in price. Additionally, Xbox Live Gold will no longer be required to play free-to-play games online, such as Fortnite.
This is good news. I was definitely planning on not reupping at that price when my current sub expired.
Happy New Year everyone! Let us all hope that the difficulties brought about by the COVID-19 virus are now waning and that more aspects of our lives will return to normal soon. We start this year with…
It started using the magic spell of prominent results page display to get authors to use it. Nothing is left of the original lure of raising awareness for web performance, and nothing convincing is there to confirm it was, indeed, a usable “web component framework.”
It never fails that come March and April, the desire for many of our lawns to begin to breaking dormancy is met with the horror that the only things that...
It's almost certainly going to be a long and ugly legal fight.
