A Jehovah’s Witness put a lot of effort into writing my husband a full page letter about Easter. I almost feel bad for them. Time is such a precious gift to waste trying to convince someone of your personal delusion. Religious proselytizing is a mundane hobby.

Zuck's proposal to fix the problem of Facebook, then, is "We should fix Facebook by not changing Facebook at all, and making it illegal to make a service that interoperates with Facebook, starving it of the monopoly rents it uses to evade real regulation."

Is there an OpenAPI Spec doc for WebDAV I can reference?

Someone just wrote me a long email saying “software engineer” is a misnomer and that programmers do not deserve the classification because “real” engineers’ work cannot fail as often as software and programmers do not use scientific principles.

How should I respond?

You want food to be high in fiber, but not taste high in fiber, ya know?

Sometimes the infighting between privacy advocates is more difficult than fighting the surveillance capitalists. Oy…
