I'm at a point in my frontend ability where I feel like I should be learning a framework so I don't have to write plain JS or rely on jQuery.

What should I start learning to take my web apps to the next step?

Nice!

There are some that are not concerned about the loss of Net Neutrality regulation. I've already seen some of these behaviors from my own ISP, and Net Neutrality isn't gone yet. I dread to think what will happen without these regulations.

PSA: Google just activated on every account a feature that tracks your location (or approximate location) when and where you do every action. So it doesn't just record "Listened to Cher 17 times on November 29th" it also adds the PRECISE GPS coordinates of WHERE you listened to Cher 17 times.

I would advice going into your account activity settings and disabling this!

<<Rule of thumb: assume every stranger you encounter has an invisible disability, a private inconsolable grief, or are in the midst of an undetectable crisis.

Offer each other moments of respite and grace.

Don’t allow projective envy to fool you into thinking you are the only or the most vulnerable person you will encounter in your day.

I listen to people’s sorrows and secrets every day - and every one is broken - especially the people you imagine are not.>>

I wish we could boost-with-commentary.

So boost is like reply, in a way, though you can skip the comment and just do a pure boost.

It allows people who want to share something to explain why they're sharing it. Value-added commentary.

It's personalizing. And that's good. 💯

so i'm actually digging into the work of migrating away from a #gmail account (a... 13 year old gmail account; this is going to take a while).

anybody have #linux desktop #mail client recommendations more useful than random websearches cough up?

i would really like something with a tag-based approach rather than traditional folders.

(things i already know: i'll probably give #mailpile a shot. i probably won't go back to #mutt. i am probably repeating myself with this question.)

Apple: We triple-encrypt all your devices with military-grade encryption, then feed the decryption key to an intern, then throw the intern into the dinosaur pit. Even the NSA could never crack our crypto! You could bring down a government or fight a small war with our devices!

Also Apple: But if you just type 'enter' you can log in as root.
