Someone write me a bot which posts this link hourly until the complexity epidemic is over

tonsky.me/blog/disenchantment/

Then all software developers see nothing but this until they fix their fucking shit

Protip: when someone from an opressed group (e.g. POC, immigrants, women, etc) complain about something a privileged group tends to do (white, non-immigrants, cis men, etc), if you are from the privileged group, there's no need for you to comment assuring that you don't do these things. There's also no need to comment "lol yeah we're horrible aren't we" on a serious post about terrifying opression. It makes you seem defensive and like you're not taking opression seriously.

If you don't do those things? Congratulations! You don't get a medal, that's a bare minimum. If you do those things? Quietly improve and maybe boost the post that made you realise that you did wrong.

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal if you're privileged but it gets tiring when half the replies on a serious post about opression are joke replies by the privileged group.

Google is apparently adding DNS over TLS support to android which tells me they are trying to put ISP's out of the analytics business and monopolise it further.

When you derail an uncomfortable conversation by enthusiastically talking about potatoes for 15 minutes straight.

I didn't ask for this (extended regular expressions)...

λf.λx.x
λf.λx.f x
λf.λx.f(f x)
λf.λx.f(f (f x))

Really should work on some of my shelved programming projects some time.
