โ€œWeโ€™re getting on to deliver more growthโ€ says Rishi Sunak at todays #PMQs seemingly oblivious to UK predicted to have the slowest growth of every G20 economy except sanctioned Russia! Watch in disbelief on this link - it was just the start!

I wrote a thing about how Elon has now admitted that the "content moderation council" was always a smokescreen to appeal to advertisers, but he never intended to listen to them.

Also he claims he went back on his promises because activists promised not to try to "kill" twitter if he set up that council, but (he claims) they went back on that deal. Of course, that's all made up in his head, rather than reality.

Trans rights are human rights.

Kindness is everything.

Just did some really interesting hooking together with fields changing focus, but it was done using a higher level component that you could register hook into to share across child components.

Once I worked it out, far less code than you'd expect.

Scottish politics & independence 

While I am disappointed by today's ruling, I am sadly unsurprised.

This was never a voluntary union of nations; it merely projected the veneer of such.

The Union was first formed at the behest of the upper classes for financial gain, not the common people of Scotland.

I deeply hope that we will find a peaceful, legal route to independence soon, so that we can build a fairer country for all.

"I've always found Rwanda to be a very inspiring country," says Suella Braverman

After being shown these US State Department findings of major human rights abuses by the Rwandan government, Braverman refuses to comment but insists again that it is a "safe and secure country".

This is our Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, unable to answer a simple question about how someone fleeing persecution in an African country could claim asylum in the UK

Elon Musk called Trent Reznor a "crybaby" for deleting his Twitter account. Wil Wheaton then wrote this incisive summary of the man-child that is Elon Musk.

If I hear โ€œGen Z is gonna save us!โ€ one more time, I am going to scream. Yโ€™all, weโ€™re the adults in the room. Itโ€™s our responsibility to clean up our own messes.

I *adore* my Gen Z kids. They are wonderful and amazing and I am privileged to know them! But they are also hurting, and have had to carry FAR more than their fair share of hardship and trauma.

Please remember that these kids are entering adulthood carrying 100lb backpacks of stuff when our backpacks weighed far less.

i'd like to remind you all that companies are only legally people.

in realities outside the tax offices, they are eldritch monstrosities, who live on human sacrifice, and if they don't get it from you, they slaughter without impunity.
