Smells like red herring or something. Why would anyone tell this to girls? That's stupid. Of course they do X like a girl when they are one. This is insult is applicable only to weak boys.

Just wow. Awesome read. I love how the first part reads like archives of some other planet where civilization perished, set in the stargate universe.

Here are some interesting excerpts:

"How wonderful it felt when I first realized the permanent record didn't
exist. They were bluffing! Nothing I did was going to matter! We were
free!

And then when I grew up, I helped build it for real."


"The belief in Big Data turns out to be true, although in an unexpected
way. If you collect enough data, you really can find anything you want."


"It's fairly common for someone to visit a Google
website from a Google device, using Google DNS servers and a Google
browser on the way.

This is a level of of end-to-end control that would have caused us to
riot in the streets if Microsoft had attempted it in 1999. But times
have changed."


"Americans have an almost perverse faith in the rule of law. They
believe that, as long as the secret courts are making sure the secret
police obey the secret laws, our democracy is safe."


"At one point, Vertesi's husband bought a number of Amazon gift cards
with cash, and the large purchase triggered a police warning. This fits
a pattern where privacy-seeking behavior has become grounds for
suspicion."


"There's only one outcome allowed: collect more data."

Do you write changelog in the same commit you do a functional change or
write changelog at the release time?

Writing the changelog (and other documentation) with the functional
change makes master nicely always in consitent state and it's easier to
not forget anything.

On the other hand eg. changelog can be mostly generated if you do your
commits and commit messages right.

Well, if you can generate your changelogs, it's probably unneeded to
always has consistent ChangeLog in order to declare master to be always
correct (as usable, tested, without regressions etc).

So, if you start working on next major release in master and users don't
pick up on the change, it's just their problem on running from git
instead of release/packages if they can't deal with this.

Thoughts?

I tried to upload two gifs to the internet with some captions.

1. twitter. Nope, can't do gifs.

2. mmkay, that looks like it's a first thing I could share on tumblr. Allright, uploading images works but how do I caption them now? What the fuck, here's a caption field but it doesn't show up. I guess it's filled in img alt="". 

3. Ok, lets try the text mode of tumblr. hey, that could actually work. But wait, why is this one not animating? … spend 10 minutes trying to figure out if I can link to the animating one … nope, nope, nope.

4. Ok, lets try g+. So if I upload one, I can even add an overlay caption there. Cool. Let's do the second one … aaand what the fuck? When I upload more than just one, the option for overlay caption is not there. Fuck this.

5. So here we go, g+ as normal caption. Ok, this is actualy working but the result is not quite right.

6. So how about facebook? Umm, no. As far as I know, facebook also doesn't support gifs and even if it did it would probably look fucked the same way as on g+ and mainly I'm not sure if I'd want to share to the facebook audience.

7. Now pondering if it is possible to host a gif as a gist on github, but seems no.

8. It would probably be possible to use gh-pages branch on a special github repo but that's quite stupid.

9. So now I'm pondering if it is something I want to publish on my blog. That would totaly work because that's self hosted. But yeah, do I want to?

10. Now I am almost out of social networks. Also pinterest, minus and flickr come to mind but the result probably wouldn't be quite right neither.

11. And now when I am amending the g+ post, when clicking on "edit post" it loads the text about half the times when I try it and page down affects the main scrollbar instead of the one I want - the one in the textarea with focus.

so yeah, computers. Is this the web 3.0, codename fuck-everything.gif?
