Started today training on CodeWars. They have very good challenges to improve coding and development skills.

Just like before the internet, it seems that interdepartmental lack of smooth communication is at play today: mapflat.com/blog/artificial-st

It's not AI that will help that, it's an open line of communication. Data segregation is not "increased security", defined access roles help with security, among other things.

Used to. Got sick of it. Started to work on it to change it. Slowly but steadily. Used to work in an office doing uninspiring things with uninspiring colleagues. Started to freelance, work remotely, moved to another country. The process took about two years, to realize what I want (still in progress, haha), to work on it, little by little every day. Small efforts every day increment into huge changes over long period of time. Just get started. You can definitely have the life you want! :)

Schools should teach children code styling and conventions.

Every single one of my classmates indents and spaces C code in a different way. It's not only hard for the others to read, but it's hard for them too. When you want to read a fun book, but it's written all over the place and you can't distinguish paragraphs from dialogue you might say "ah fuck it, too hard to understand" even though the content itself is light.

I feel little details like these make them go "ugh" at computer science.

I'll be honest, really helped me in getting locking right in C... in the past 10 months there was not a single locking issue in my code.

Several password manager apps also let you store your 2FA credentials. I'm not sure I like that. It defeats the point of 2FA since everything you need to log in is stored in one place. If you want to do that, at least consider storing them in different databases locked by different keys.

If your account is set to "locked", then you have to approve your followers. Is there a way to unapprove them?

Addressing these design problems depends on your view of a just society. For this I appreciate Rawls's Veil of Ignorance: imagine creating a just society, but not knowing what your future place in that society will be. You could end up as a rich person on the fortunate side of the border, or a poor person on the unfortunate side.

If the possibility of not winning the borders lottery makes you queasy, then you know that morality wise borders shouldn't be a thing anymore.

I'd like to hear the "other"s – I didn't actually expect anybody to choose that option.

nothing helped more to avoid Google's tracking than Google itself, demanding more money.

their Maps API price change saved us from webdevelopers including Google code for embedding some maps on websites, which couldn't be so easily blocked as it would break these sites. instead, the most of them migrated to OpenStreetMap.

now the only spyware left to fight is the reCAPTCHA.
