This is a dystopian nightmare and we do not want it in the UK. Is it really the job of the tech press to unquestioningly laud these kinds of “innovations” without even calling out the obvious privacy & civil society threats they represent? Do better, @mashable. twitter.com

It is incredibly difficult - as a consumer - to eliminate single use plastics. @JennGroves@twitter.com decided to start reducing our use of single use plastics and now, like kerning issues, I notice them everywhere. I feel like it is impossible to buy anything not wrapped in plastic.

BTW: Mac Pro shipping in December. Can now have up to 8TB of internal storage. Will do six 8k video streams at once, up from previously claimed three. We're not done with the Mac yet in 2019.

The photo of outraged David Tennant will now be my standard when I find accessibility errors on websites.

Last night I had the pleasure of making another show with the BBC Symphony Orchestra this time with the extraordinary @neilhimself, @amandapalmer & special guest (I’m allowed to mention him, now) David Tennant. Full show is on R3 on 23 Dec, with an edit for R4 on Xmas Morning.

not many things make me angrier than CSS that sets `margin-bottom` on p tags.

Here’s what I do:

.flow {
--flow-space: 1em;
}
.flow > * + * {
margin-top: 1em; /* just in case custom props not supported */
margin-top: var(--flow-space);
}

i was so stunned that i simply stood there and said nothing. people laughed and moved on. i have not been able to get it out of my head since it happened. there are so many things you could say about this moment....but mostly i just needed to tell a friend. thanks, friend.

i was at a london thing with @neilhimself@twitter.com. we ran into a famous british man neil knows, and who knows me. he jovially said to neil - we were all standing in a circle - that he won’t work with americans anymore, and that he can’t even stand the sound of an american accent anymore.

Take advantage of those scholarship tickets!

Is more interested in Walter Gretzky’s famous quote to his son Wayne: "Skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been."

So many slides about what’s hot. That’s too late to apply for grants to innovate on that. That “future” column ain’t the future in your grant cycle.
