For someone who puts his name on his companies so he doesn’t forget what name they have, it is not too surprising.

Doctors were never sure whether the "Berlin patient," the only person to have been cleared of HIV, was an anomaly.

With the "London patient," they have new evidence of another potential HIV "cure."

As usual, there are caveats. My story here:

"X is a made up word."

Please, tell me more about the all natural words that grew on the word bushes and were harvested by the word farmers in bushels and sent to the word market.

Looking forward to speaking at CSUN next week and – for the first time – at @FunkaNu@twitter.com’s Accessibility Days in the next few weeks:

2017 haben Wölfe 472 Schafe gerissen. Menschen knapp 911.000 Schafe inländischer Herkunft geschlachtet[1]. Das sind 0,05%. Klar, dass wir nun dringend Wölfe abschießen müssen:

I love how the blog post talks about “avoid losing the integrity of our data” and an “attack on cookies”, although the goal is to break the integrity of user’s privacy.

Das ist genau das, was passiert, wenn man Podcasts in die geschlossenen Systeme entlässt. Irgendwann "muss man da sein" und Leute lernen nicht, dass Podcasts eine offene Medienwelt sind. Stellt Eure Podcasts nicht in Systeme, die nur "von innen" zu erreichen sind. twitter.com/Hauke_Cordts/statu

With the shift from @Typekit@twitter.com to @AdobeFonts@twitter.com creatives gained a great font service but at the same time the web lost a fantastic web fonts provider for client work and this makes me sad. 😞 Here are my thoughts on that: zeichenschatz.net/typografie/w

Whenever you use Lyft/Uber, they pay a bit of your ride. Then, when taxis and public transport have been priced out of the market they will want to get that investment back.

Lyft lost about $1.40 per ride last quarter (net loss -$248.9M on 178.4M rides). That's better than in 2017, when it lost $1.82 per ride. For context, Uber lost $1.13 per ride in 2017.

At some dumb point in the dumb future Lyft and Uber will declare that they can never be profitable but that they are essential to city transportation and will demand that cities subsidize them and we will have finally closed the circle of stupid. twitter.com/ranimolla/status/1

To be honest, being an “expert” is just winging it, but with more experience.

There is often no formal process to get there and opinions differ. Experience makes you go “oh, I’ve seen this” instead of “oh, I need to research this”. But there’s always stuff you have not seen.

We’re all winging it. I promise you, even the experts. Especially the experts; we’re dealing with cutting edge problems and there’s no playbook. We’re all figuring it out as we go.

Be kind to yourself. Try to figure out what it is you should do, not what the right answer is.

They do have a product like the MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar. It is even called that. ;-)

I use my Touch Bar every day dozens of times and don’t want to miss it. They need to allow more customization (a la BetterTouchTool).
