Look, let’s be honest. You aren’t really here for some earth shattering information. You saw a very clickbaity title that I made to troll Cassidy Williams and quite honestly, I don’t think she was ACTUALLY expecting this.
As long as you are here though, I should write up some interesting links that I’ve found over the past few days that caught my attention.
Ben Holmes has an amazing write up of his time over the last almost 2 years of his adventures in making his own static site generator setup. It’s a great read, and honestly is so much fun.
Netflix Can do Better
The story of the week in my news feed is surrounding Netflix and the new Dave Chappelle special. I have even had a very long phone call with a friend about this. Rather than attempt to pontificate, I’ll link to the 2 articles I have read from the people who are living this story:
- Terra Field - “It Was Never About Dave”
- NYT - “Netflix workers plan a walkout as the fallout over Dave Chappelle continues.”
I’m writing about this specifically because the friend who called me was asking for perspective about it and he knew I might have thoughts. He is a Black man who is older than I and he asked me to watch the special so we could have a discussion about it. I have yet to watch it, but I will so that I can speak with him from an informed place.
Dave Rupert talks about using houdini to make custom CSS properties with more magic. I love new web technology and the unlimited terrible things you can do with it.
And that’s all. There, Cassidy. I wrote something. Your move.
