Scripting News: May 20, 2017 |
I think we have to work on climate change and the fascism that's trying to boot up in the US. Our systems for news suck, and there are obvious ways to improve them if we put our minds to it. And I think a new incompatible feed format not only doesn't move us toward solving those problems, in a very small way (not worth worrying about) it moves us away from solving them. By using bandwidth that could be used to foster working-together, perhaps. By making things that would otherwise interop, not interop.

If developers have a hard time using XML in their apps, if that's the problem, why not attack it right there? Work to make it easier. I work in Node and the browser, and in both places XML and JSON are equally easy to use. The same could be done for any environment. In fact in the browser, XML is integrated deeply into the programming model, because the web is made out of XML.

Markdown throwdown: what happens when FOSS software gets corporate backing? | Ars Technica
Despite the disappointing state of the Web these days, there remain pockets of the Internet that still feel untainted. We jealously guard these spaces, our personal little Fugazis of the Web that we can point to and say, "See, isn't taking venture capital," "Metafilter isn't manipulating me for an exit," or "Markdown is still a little script some guy wrote."

How a new HTML element will make the Web faster | Ars Technica
Perhaps the best thing about being naive, though, is that you tend to plow forward without the hesitation that attends someone who knows how difficult the road ahead will be.

Prisoner's Dilemma

"The "free market" is a bogus political phrase. I'm in favor of markets: real ones that self-regulate by preventing fraud (a central clearing/blinding counter-party, bid/offer/open-interest/size transparency) and abuse of power (market winners capture governments -- this has happened throughout history, it's a big problem right now, see the Global Financial Crisis)."

Opera Developer News - 300 million users and move to WebKit
"* The chrome browser is filled with spyware (clientID, RLZ identifier, visited url's being send to google, etc...). I most certainly hope opera will NOT have those?

Opera already looks a bit like chrome and will now uses the same engine chrome uses. If I wanted to use chrome, I would already be using the 'Comodo Dragon' browser, that browser is based on chrome but without the spyware see ). Why would I continue using opera, if it looks like any other browser and now also acts like any other browser?"
