"The Mobile Performance Inequality Gap, 2021" by @slightlyoff infrequently.org/2021/03/the-p

Another great rundown of devices, browsers, and how to set web performance targets in 2021. It's interesting and depressing to see how little Android performance has budged in the past few years.

The Gamestop situation has been fun to watch but buying low fee index funds is probably a more sustainable way to stick it to Wall St.

Sad to see how duolingo collects more and more ads and gets premium in your face.
I get it, they need money to stay alive but it's more than 6€ a month for yearly which is way more than it should be IMO. I should probably deduce 30% for Google/Apple tho.
Language learning is always expensive, I get it but with community-prepared courses and not super high quality lessons (for the most part) I can't justify it in any way.

Public access to publicly funded science.

It doesn't sound so outlandish or unreasonable! The people already paid for it, why is it behind a paywall with surveillance and tracking?

Years later we are still in debt to Aaron Swartz for becoming a science-pirate, and making his powerful statement.

And especially for facing the exorbitant harassment that resulted and continued until he lost the will to live.
