I've had some thoughts on the current situation. Too much for the character limit here, though.


If you missed our Small is Beautiful live stream with David Heinemeier Hansson today, the recording is now available to watch at small-tech.org/small-is-beauti

#SmallIsBeautiful #SmallTech

The tech industry has a strange sense of what’s great 

What do you do when somebody writing about product dev or management refers to Google or Netflix as companies that make great products whose processes and methods you should emulate?

‘Cause ‘great’ is not the word I’d use to describe their output

Google’s products, with very few exceptions, are either be horrible or almost fatally flawed

Netflix’s UI is purpose-designed to downplay the stuff you enjoy in favour of their own mediocre series

Running git 2.28 or later? Take 10 seconds and enter the following into your terminal to set the default branch in new projects to main not master:

git config --global init.defaultBranch main

Actions matter more than words. So here’s a simple action you can take to show that you care.

“Everyone Is Beautiful and No One Is Horny - Blood Knife”


There has been a noticable rise in American puritanism over the last couple of decades.

"I will slaughter you" - some emails penetrate even my thick open source maintainer skin. Like this threat.

On how people forget how miserable school was 

“Do Adults Really Not Remember School Sucked? - Ian Welsh” ianwelsh.net/do-adults-really-

I will never get this. School was a miserable experience for me. I did really well but hated every moment. Pretty much everybody I went to school with hated it as well. Even disregarding the horrible teachers I had*, the overall school experience still sucked

*: I had at least five teachers who were genuinely evil people and seemed to thrive on the misery of children.

Jag har svårt att uttrycka i ord riktigt hur deprimerad den här typen av nyheter gör mig. Inte bara hur illa folk behandlar andra varelser i allmänhet men också hur vi uppenbarligen inte kommer lära oss något av pandemin och kontor vs. hemarbete osv. svt.se/nyheter/lokalt/vasterbo
