> Learning how to learn is way more important than the learning itself

Couldn't agree more 😃 being able to read and understand documentation, and being able to relate new knowledge to ideas that you already understand is the key to being a successful programmer.

I just hate how they always add crap to a 💸 bill.

Stop using "Zoom" as a general term for video conferencing.
Stop using "Google" as a general term for searching the web.

I’ve been thinking a lot about various creative reactions to the absurdity that we all carry supercomputers in our pocket but have to keep upgrading even to retain functionality because software gets worse and surveillance gets more pervasive

Things like low-power computing (Rpi and friends, microcomputers, retro computing, etc), some of the solarpunk stuff, the “smolnet” (Gopher and Gemini and the like), and so on seem to be interesting ways of highlighting that things could be other than they are

Is there an umbrella term for this? Is someone collecting projects that relate to “computing designed to work well even with low-performance/low-power gear”?

Upgraded to Vivaldi 3.5, and I love what they've done with tab stacks. I also think the QR code thing is cool, but can't think of anything I'll ever actually use it for.
