roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you
and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops
it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed
twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

lol, amp. i noticed that a page would suddenly appear after 8 seconds of waiting if i disabled js, which seemed pretty weird.
turns out that there's a css3 anim to hide the page for 8 full seconds (that is skipped when the js loads ofc).
this is *required* by the amp standard. your page fails validation if you don't do this.
sure makes these goog results look kinda suspicious, huh
nytimes.com belongs squarely in the #GDPRHallOfShame as it sends you to multiple external sites in order to opt out.
It also provides an opt out button which is (a) hidden and (b) doesn't include advertising cookies.
I think I've shamed them before, but wth, one more doesn't hurt.
If you were wondering why most photos of the Pyramids in Giza always seem to be from the same angle, this is why
Because of the extensive tourism, they built a highway right up to site. And with tourism and traffic come shops. Businesses get money and they build houses and yet more shops, and so on...
The end result is a city which kinda ruins the mood if you want your pyramid photo to have the “lost in the desert” vibe
This seems like a good time for a PSA:
If in the future you see something on a public-facing webpage you want to make a durable record of for use as evidence, don't take a screenshot. Those are -- understandably -- widely considered too easy to fabricate.
Instead, snapshot the page with the Internet Archive. It'll log a timestamped copy of the page to their servers. Highly tamper-resistant.

Why is a floppy disk like Jesus? Afficher plus
It died, has become an icon of saving, and won't be back unless the apocalypse hits.
Did you know that https://communitywiki.org/trunk exists?
It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.
Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.
If you are new to Mastodon or you are looking for more interesting people to follow, you should check it out.
I hope that everyone involved in this stupid and wrong decision has a terrible weekend https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=881410

Conservative web development
That awkward moment when your boss does something out of the blue, and you frantically search whether you'd been subtweeting her because she follows you 🤔😥
