"No single company should control the future of the web platform." Good birdsite thread from Anne van Kesteren of Mozilla mobile.twitter.com/annevk/stat

Mozilla's take on the Edge news.

"By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google... We compete with Google not because it’s a good business opportunity. We compete with Google because the health of the internet and online life depend on competition and choice."


It is really sad Edge is going away. We need competition on the Web now more than ever. Microsoft really didn't do a good job with Edge selling it to people. How could it ever have a chance when people were taught for years that the blue e was crap and to stay away from using it because it was unsafe for their computers? From a purely design standpoint they failed before anyone ever opened the browser.

Migrated my mastodon install to a new server and finally updated lol. Thanksgiving holiday was busy!

This here event where ownership of a npm module was transferred over to a malware actor has me wound up in a bit of paranoia.


It isn't that we didn't see this coming. A lot of people did and warned about this exact scenario. For example: hackernoon.com/im-harvesting-c

It's more that it triggers, again, my worry about how unsustainable the current OSS ecosystem looks, relying almost entirely on unpaid labour and burnt out maintainers.

Which is a very 😱 kind of thought.

J'ai complètement oublié de vous montrer cette beauté par @anaisfae , honte à moi. Merci encore ✨

Day 16 . I managed to do half of the prompts this year. I didn’t finish this one in time, but it’s interesting nonetheless in its present form. It’s of crystals from the Naica cave in Mexico which are absolutely gigantic in scale.

Day 15 . Haven’t had time lately OTL. Caterpillar is having a difficult time when the weak twig broke.

Liking Mast for the most part. Wish I could disable the long-hold thing all together. By default it changes the theme, so whenever I try to copy text it would change the theme. Now it just shows confetti and celebrates my text selection. Also wish it had a way to add descriptions to images for accessibility reasons.

Day 11 . Way too far behind to catch up now, but oh well! This is a shoebill stork, a bird native to Africa whose young fight to the death in a cruel showing of survival of the fittest. That cruelty is outshone by the fact they’re nearly killed to extinction because they’re believed to be “unlucky”. mastodon.dustinwilson.com/medi
