The amount of talk about the environmentally harmful and the further harming of people who struggle financially is mind blowing but Doc put it in words the crypto-bros will understand. If they ever take their fingers out of their ears and stop shouting "na na na na i cant hear you."
danah boyd's piece from 2014 has always been facinating to me, but relating it to my own experiences around transitioning and the ways that I have percevied depth just feels like a lot of gender validation for me :)
This has long been true, but for some reason it still needs to be said: two-factor authentication over text message makes you less secure than not having it.
I don’t know Polish but this is pretty fascinating about how the language handles pronouns.
This article is a beautiful takedown of the fake feminism people sell. Though, this article fails to mention anything at all about trans issues, who are also deeply effected by mobilized angry white women trying to destroy feminism.
Watching Maddy find themself has been a joy, and reading about how Celeste developed with them is great.
Cassidy had an excellent talk today about building an adventure game with NextJS, which is definitely in my interests because I’ve been building my own visual novel in NextJS over the last few months.
The lore behind Fall Guys is as adorable as the little beans. That said, I can't wait for those eggs to hatch 👀
I've seen people at every place I've worked just... share things like this with any webpage with a text input box and it's never set right with me. It's such an easy way to social engineer your way in to free personal identifiable information.
I can't believe it took a study for this to be apparent. I can't control much of the flow of how job interviews work as an engineer, but I can try my best to make the other person comfortable and relaxed. That is always my goal during interviews. Anything that might make them nervous or anxious I specifically avoid.
Don’t trust anyone who wants to depict pigs as anything other than violent and bigoted. Not Spider-man. Not Andy Griffith. No one gets to ignore this.
As a girl who learned web development on Neopets, this is very much true and close to my heart.
The audio clip on the article is HORRIFYING. Seems TikTok is not alone in their actions.
While we're criticizing TikTok for hiding "ugly" and "poor" people from their platform, they have also admitted to discrimination of other protected groups.
Earlier today it was falsely going around that TikTok was banning Black Lives Matter from their platform. Let's take a look at which groups they are actually preventing from using their platform.
I’ve been looking at this app for a while, but it really feels like the closest thing to Final Cut Pro on the iPad (or iPhone?) I was able to take a hour long video and chop it up almost instantly.
This post is nearly five years old and yet still as relevant as ever, as Facebook still does not like that queer people use their website. This doesn't stop fake accounts or harassment, obviously. The alt-right trolls still attack people daily and use the site to plan attacks on innocent people.
It also appears no one makes a living on Steam, a platform built upon a race to the bottom of sales.
Every once and a while Patreon doesn something bad and then I can't help but remember this article from before The Outline laid everyone off recently.
Tracey Lien’s 2013 piece for Polygon reminds us that Nintendo invented the myth that games are for boys.
Congratulations to the employees at Glitch! I hope to see this come to a company near me!
Grace Robertson digs in to why the politics and self-congratulatory nature of Michael Shur's television shows trip him up and make for awkward television.
A *two* hour documentary about the horrifying truth that is Amazon.
Congratulations to the employees at Kickstarter! I hope to see this come to a company near me!
Nico Deyo comes in holding no punches: 'The inhuman coloration to their skin and general lankiness denotes an otherness, but everything else feels oriented towards sexiness, creating a line of mean, angular villainesses—like fuckable Lamborghinis.'
This was such a fun read from Colin Spacetwinks about how Sonic is cool enough to fit in to any mold you want.
It’s fascinating to hear from the people behind this game. To me it was always mysterious game from a mysterious source that would mysteriously get new chapters. I never demanded anything from them, but I always enjoyed getting more.
I’ve been loving every bit of Kentucky Route Zero since it came out 7 years ago. I’m so excited to get to play the ending!
