Yeah, deleting Facebook is cool, but have you ever tried regulating it?

If I were Zuck, I'd love to see my users struggling to muster the courage to delete their accounts and lose the content they created and networks they built, thinking it's their weakness that deters them.

What I wouldn't love is being sent to prison for violating their privacy.

I think some frontend engineers don't really grasp the subtlety and design tricks that come into play once you are making charts ready for publication. Totally agree with this point from medium.com/@mbostock/why-you-s

Did @unpkg@twitter.com's behaviour change? It's now loading index.js for everything and ignoring both the unpkg and main fields in package.json, meaning that *everything is broken rn*.

1/ If you don’t follow Brexit every day, here’s some advice. Let go of any illusions that this drama is about trade protocols, residency rights or the status of the Irish border. Brexit is the story of a proud former imperial power undergoing a mid-life crisis

it's very simple. If the archimandrite hits the woolsack with the mace, there will be a hustings, and all the periodontists will race to the end the chamber to see who is the Lord Spiritual. If there are more than 158, the chaplain dons the black robe and eats the Prime Minister. twitter.com/chrissyteigen/stat

Nope, I definitely did not just make EVERY SINGLE EMOJI into a party parrot rainbow interpolator. Definitely not.
