this is my new character, MRA guy who is exclusively mad about the movie mars needs moms
JS talks I'm becoming less and less interested in over time:
- hey here's this amazing new browser API, it can make your sites 2 milliseconds faster
- why are we doing this
- what does it all mean
- what are the economics behind all this stuff that devrel folks are way too uncomfortable to bring up
Only now that I've been on Mastodon for a few months, without a quote functionality or anything similar, do I realize how fucking dumb we all were when it came to spreading horrible shit around by holding it up and saying "I THINK THIS IS BAD".
Like, I think we all registered on some level that we were giving it a much wider audience than it ever would have had otherwise, but holy shit, only now has it really hit me how hard we fell for that. Hook line and sinker
