I recently found out about keys.openpgp.org. If you need a keyserver, look no further! It's a nice modern solution.

Say it with me again: Every smart contract has a built in bug bounty program worth 100% of whatever is in the contract.

I’m sorry to drag what started out as a mostly ironic twitter disc horse on here, but I’m unironically a bedtime abolitionist. The current diurnal norm is incredibly ableist to people who have circadian rhythm disorders (like me). I shouldn’t be forced to be awake in the middle of my circadian night, I shouldn’t be forced to suffer chronic sleep deprivation. All people should be able to follow their natural sleep rhythms. I want a world in which alarm clocks are obsolete.

Also suits: "we will do the bare minimum to support disabled people because they are a minority"

User interfaces (-) 

Mozilla's "Photon" design regression is making it to other browsers.
I use MS Edge at work (company policy) and tried out the canary channel, where I noticed a pref for experimental appearance settings. It lets you turn on "rounded tabs".

Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, but given that using "making everything more ambiguous when given the chance" as a predictor for user interface changes seems to be really accurate, it might end up becoming the default someday. I seriously hope this doesn't become the new normal. MS is no stranger to making non-buttons (especially hyperlinks) look like buttons in their interfaces, so this could be the next logical step.

After using tablets, laptops, smart boards, wireless casting, video, educational video games, pretty much everything included in Google Suite for Education, and smart textbooks, I can confidently say that the most effective teaching tool I've ever experienced in a classroom is a whiteboard.

"Guys, I have an idea. Let's make a browser optimized for the kind of people who don't opt out of telemetry, and market it to privacy-conscious people." -- Top minds at Mozilla Corp

If you market to privacy-conscious people and you base all your decisions on data from telemetry, you're gonna get a very skewed perspective. You'll see disproportionate representation from fans (people who want to enable telemetry because they love Mozilla and want to help, and will rationalize any decision Mozilla makes) and very non-technical users who don't know what telemetry is and how opt-in/out works. Technical users who disable stuff like telemetry, analytics, etc. are going to look like a rounding error.

This explains a lot of Firefox's changes.
