Before we talk design, I think we should avoid reddit's mistake, in the sense that personalizing comments was hard AF for mods because it hardcoded the design inside the code - every redesign meant breaking subreddits' CSS code, and that sucked big time for everyone.
Instead, make the HTML semantically sound, both for the content section, the sidebar, and so on - with appropriate classes and data-tags (i.e - 1/3

Introducing the Konbomini! A MidiFighter style clip launcher midi device. I made this. I’m very happy about it. Yes those are real arcade buttons.
Hope to upload a video of me playing in a bit tonight.
"What is ActivityPub and how will it change the Internet?". Nice post by @jdormit!
(The only thing I'd challenge is the bit about needing lots more users to compete with Facebook and Twitter - I think most active users here would say that the fediverse is doing well already & it doesn't have to become a wholesale Facebook/Twitter-slayer for it to be good and useful! I think in general we - I'm guilty of it too - spend too much time focusing on & comparing with them!)
I truly believe that #ActivityPub (the protocol behind #Mastodon) has the potential to redefine the way we create and connect on the internet. But to get there, we need to spread the word - a network is only as valuable as the people in it.
I want to get that ball rolling - I wrote a blog post about how ActivityPub is going to change the internet. Check it out here: https://jeremydormitzer.com/blog/what-is-activitypub-and-how-will-it-change-the-internet/. And please boost/share to your other networks so we can keep making the Fediverse bigger!
there should be a reverse kickstarter where you tell people your horrible idea and they pay you not to make it
Earlier this year, I started working on an idea that would make node_modules go away and, apart from making things fast, would change the very nature of package managers.
The project was announced today! https://blog.npmjs.org/post/178027064160/next-generation-package-management
That said, please direct qs and such elsewhere cause I'm still on vacay.
Working on one of our two Ringers today. This is our only non-pinball electromechanical game, and although the gameplay is very rudimentary, it's one of our most popular games. It's intended as a pub game, and works well in that context - the drunker you are, the more fun this game is.

Meanwhile reading privacy policies for Bluetooth headphones. Not that I'm in the market, I got some Bose headphones a while back and they're v. good. But. But. The EULAs and Privacy policies on this thing are just BEYOND.
From a tech POV some stuff kind of makes sense. And some stuff is tricky, like -- having a "find my buds" locator makes sense when you can lose them even more easily. But. But.
I want headphones to not be spyware.
Here's the book that inspired me to make robots as a kid. Nothing sophisticated, just robots made out of erasers and pipe cleaners.
