I don't think I've ever seen any service apply content abbreviation and hiding as badly as GitHub.

A file has lots of changes? GitHub will helpfully hide it from you, so you don't need to worry about it.

Lots of comments? Don't worry, GitHub is here to hide them from you so your day isn't ruined.

And just today? They added a feature to let you mark specific lines that your comment applies to? What does GitHub do with this new information? It abbreviates it and just shows the last few.

"Not everybody has the time or means to cook healthy meals from scratch, so let’s not pretend it’s that simple."

The story about data analysis by Target from ”The Power of Habit” is a very compelling argument for why capitalism and tech will ensure the end of humanity
