Super-Structured Data: Rethinking the Schema
Gmail will block all third party mail clients starting from June: http://www.pmail.com/newsflash.htm
That is, unless they pay $4500 minimum for an audit :D
Stop using gmail and enabling their monopolistic practices, if you already haven't.
""The solution isn't to push users back to the command line. The solution must be to bring composability to the graphical environment."" -- @ajroach42
I wanna talk about this for a bit because I think it's an important piece of the UI puzzle that we just somehow haven't ever yet realised is a thing we need.
1) Text is a thing that we can a) edit and b) copy/paste
2) GUI constructs, on the other hand, generally we just... can't. They're like hot-glued to the screen.
3) but what if we could?
I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.
I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.
I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.
Now would be the prime time for any Mastodon admins with servers capable of accepting new users and scaling up to submit them to joinmastodon.org

I love hearing when a major piece of software uses a relatively niche, unexpected language. Coming to mind is Naughty Dog using Common Lisp for all their games until they were bought by Sony, and even then they still partially wrote major games like The Last of Us in Lisp. itch.io is entirely in Lua (well Moonscript, that transpiles to Lua). Many GNU programs naturally embed Guile (Guix), and GIMP uses TinyScheme/Script-Fu, so there's some nice real-world FOSS users of Scheme dialects.
Any other fun/interesting examples?
Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.
Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.
