@benwerd is that an indieweb comments implementation I see there?
I wonder if there’s a relationship between the frequency of cutlery use broken down by type and overall health
@begoesti looking good! Ours are shooting up too — at least something’s enjoying the eternal sunlight :)

@scottjenson yep, Stræto sums up everything which is wrong with QR codes and apps in one go. Are you in Iceland at the moment?

What happened when I started a feminist society at school is a wonderfully written article documenting the troubles encountered by some humans trying to promote their equality with other humans #bookmark #feminism
One of the worst parts of this is the school blatantly victim-blaming:
As such, we will take steps to recommend students remove words or images that they place online that could compromise their safety or that of other students at the school.
Seeing as the activism was happening on the web, I read this as “give up, don’t offend the misogynists, they might hurt you”, which could hardly be called “support”. The pseudo-politicalese “take steps to recommend” is vague and and improvable.
Clearly such institutions cannot be trusted to support the fight for equality.

@benwerd I use markdown for initial authoring purely for speed, esp. when typing on mobile devices. After that I just edit the HTML. I’ve yet to come across a WYSIWIM editor which satisfied my semantic, well-structured HTML needs, any suggestions?
When dealing with character encoding issues I repeatedly get this feeling that we need to throw away computing and programming and
redesign it all in a way which prevents stupid, hard-to-debug problems from happening live in trees and eat pita bread all day
