Pinned toot

Can't help but think that the quick demise of Notre Dame provides an emotional anchor of feelings for all the old beauty that slowly and invisibly decays in our time.

Hacker News is a toxic cesspool and its perceived importance in our industry says a lot about us, the people working in it.

Gradual systemic failure is so much less enjoyable than sudden collapse. It’s all the negative consequences without any of the excitement.

I miss 😿

I'm super fascinated by Sushidragon on Twitch from a live video production viewpoint. He's doing all that stuff on his own. 🤯🤯🤯

Startup advice: In a capitalist system slogans and names emphazing humanity (don't be evil, nice people matter) are technical debt. Chose something that sounds vaguely chaotic neutral or lawful evil. (Alphabet, Palantir).

Working in Tech, I'm sometimes existentially worried to participate in an industry that makes humans less kind on average.

Just in case you escaped the original tweet, here's iPhone Shark for a second, even more annoying time!

So, yeah, iOS 12.2 has new animojis, including a shark. And thus emerged a brain fart that tormented me for days. Now, through the power of video editing, motion graphics and sound editing, you too can experience the hell that is... iPhone Shark.

Thinking back to when I watched my first Apple Keynote in 1999 and how weird this thing feels now compared to that.

I feel a great disturbance in the App Store, as if thousands of indie game maker's voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

Watching the Apple event, hoping my personal creative niche can escape commodification for a little bit longer. Fingers crossed.

This is fascinating video about how the pipeline from edgelording to terrorism works. Bonus points for calling it the "Pewdiepipeline".

Good: Sekiro would be absolutely remote playable on PS4 via iOS.
Bad: I don't have an MFI Controller that has L3/R3 buttons. :(

This little boy has been sick last week and needed to be fed with a syringe because he wouldn't eat. It took three visits to the vet, but a shot of antibiotics later he's recovering well and seems to be back to his old self. So happy.

I wonder if we already have entered an age that makes it feasible to start a company catered exclusively to the taste of one super-rich person (e.g. selling turmeric “Superfood” coffee creamers). Not to sell them the product, but to sell them the company.

Clear sign that your parody song is good enough: Content ID claims the video.
