I enjoyed this article. A lot of interesting points.
The rich, diverse, free web that I loved — and spent years in an Iranian jail for — is dying. Why is nobody stopping it?

How I survived for so long using the default Android photo app is way beyond my comprehension.

Finding QuickPic absolutely superb.
Fast, lightweight, modern, QuickPic is the best alternative album/gallery a...

Managed to step away from Rocket League while I'm still in my 30s. Contender for world's most addictive video game.

Who would have thought mixing football and cars could be so magic?

Posting this again publicly so I can find it without logging in.

Watch this now! It's an incredible piece of performance art. It NEEDS to be watched with audio. Watch it to the very end because the entire thing is a fucking masterpiece.

This is the coolest juggling performance I have ever seen and it has been a massive influence on my juggling. I saw it about 6 months after really getting into juggling and it blew my fucking mind. I have finally managed to be able to do all the tricks in it (there's just one nails trick that has taken 16 years, the rest are doable fairly quickly). Now to try to string them together so accurately and smoothly... See you in another 16 years, I reckon.

I found stuff like TCP so boring at uni, but these days I really enjoy learning about this sort of thing.

Ticket to Ride is an ace board game that adapts really well to phones. I feel I can finally recommend this now that I've at least won a handful of online games (out of the dozens that I've played).

Totally recommended - simple rules but tricky to master.
The best Online adaptation of Days of Wonder's best-selling train game, Ticket to Ride takes less than one minute to learn but a lifetime to master.

At what point does the general populace wake up and realise exactly how fucked all this stuff is?

The festival will be the first in the UK to allow the police to use facial recognition software.

This is good.
The main loop is a core part of any application in which state changes over time. In games, the main loop is often called the game loop, and it is typically responsible for computing physics and AI as well as drawing the result on the screen. Unfortunately, the vast majority of main loops found online - especially those in JavaScript - are written incorrectly due to timing issues. I should know; I've written my fair share of bad ones.
