This suuuuuucks. DPReview is a great website and YouTube channel—probably the best of its kind in the world. But I guess that doesn't matter to the bean counters.

@ivory You might want to rather use \b instead of (space), so you're also able to match hashtags and other non-alpha-numeric chars.

Per @Shine_McShine "As a rule of thumb, before developing or releasing any new "disruptive" tech, ask yourself these three questions:

· What would venture capitalists do with this new tech?
· What would 4chan do with this new tech?
· What would the state of Israel do with this new tech?"

My answers:

a) Move fast and break things

b) Move fast and break people

c) Move fast and break the peace

Oh, man. This comic — from 1993 — could NOT be more relevant today. As usual, Bill Watterson hits it out of the park.

Before I even had the words as a kid, I knew two things:

1. Computers were magical.
2. I hated being a girl.

I would much rather talk about the first thing, but transphobic politicians and journalists will not leave us alone, and we’re going to talk about the second.


@simonbs ugh I miss that feeling! Last time I was at the slopes was March 2020, exactly a week before they sent us all home. It was a weird feeling going from being surrounded by hundreds of people to being home 24/7. Since then, I didn’t find the time to get back. And the season is almost over!
Hope you had fun!

Ahora que la BBC ha decidido censurar a sir David Attenborough porque la derecha no está dispuesta a admitir que sus políticas están destruyendo el planeta, es un buen momento para rescatar una anécdota poco conocida que ilustra hasta qué punto el naturalista y documentalista británico es, además de un tesoro nacional, una persona valiente y comprometida.


Te dejo estos temáticos, por si van con tus intereses. Todos en inglés, sorry!
Old gods of Appalachia es un podcast narrativo donde las montañas de Appalachia (llenas de rednecks y pueblos pequeños endogamos) son un lugar Lovecraftiano. Está en inglés y a veces entender a Cam y su acentazo de pueblo cerrado es difícil, pero es buenísimo.

Ludology sobre el mundillo de diseñar juegos de mesa. Algunos son muy interesantes.

@_Davidsmith and with such a killer app you still find time to maintain and improve your other apps. Hats off to you! 👏

It's international women's day.

While you're talking about solidarity, don't forget:
- trans women
- disabled women
- Black Women, Indigenous Women, and Women of Colour
- women in prisons
- women with addiction issues
- old and elderly women
- women who are sex workers

...the list goes on.

Remember all the women who are ignored and forgotten, even on days they're meant to be remembered.

Not only did Elon Musk go full psychopath today trying to publicly demean one of his (apparently now) former employees, of all people he chose *this* guy to attack, to really contrast himself with what a good human looks like.

*slow clap*

I guess it's time to move my prescriptions away from Walgreens. 

I expect a pharmacy to remove medications in a state where they've become illegal. I can even understand (though not agree with) not selling certain medications at all because you don't think they should be used. But Walgreens is stopping the sale of legal medications just because certain state AGs are looking to move up the GOP ladder.

@drafts thanks, @agiletortoise ! An integration with Airtable to avoid using their horrid iOS app is something I’ve wanted for so long! I’m too lazy to spend hours troubleshooting shortcuts and the API, but this is so much better!

The WSJ published a "cOnsErvAtIvE spEEch On cAmpUs Is gEttIng cAncEllEd article" today. I will not link to it, and I normally wouldn't give this bullshit the time of day but this one happens to be about my alma mater, Stanford, so I feel a certain duty to point out the shitty journalism in this article by calling out the fact that the reason the university has an anonymous reporting system for hateful conduct is because there have been several anti-semitic incidents on campus in recent years /1
