Every German ows a huge debt to Werner Herzog for making English with a German accent sounding vaguely cool and intellectual.

My YouTube keeps recommending Asian ASMR crafting and cooking videos and I'm super fascinated by how that is a massive thing.

Thinking a lot about Game of Thrones and the age of internet opinions these days. I’m actually enjoying this season, but the more time I spend reading and listening to opinions online the harder it gets to avoid drifting into negativity.

I enjoyed Endgame so much and I cried several times, but V jbhyq unir rawblrq vg n ybg zber jvgu nyy gur sng wbxrf. Vg'f n cbjreshy erzvaqre nalobql pna or n ureb, rkprcg sbe sng crbcyr.

Me after playing around with Elixir and Phoenix Liveview: 😻😻😻

I love being able to make my own iMessage stickers.

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 @importantcast@twitter.com. 😿

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. youtu.be/rVu6YpDqNg0

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". youtube.com/watch?v=pnmRYRRDbu
