My girlfriend: Do you know what "Node.js: Server-side JavaScript" is?

Me: Yeah, why are you asking?

Her: Is it a virus?

Me: Weeeell... 😆

@fribbledom Adobe uses Node running in an embedded Chromium as their plugin framework. At least that's how it works in Premiere and After Effects.

I did a proof-of-concept plugin in this at one point when that generation of their plugin system was in beta, which was interesting, especially considering it was my first and last professional "web dev" experience.
