Half the internet is down today because everyone uses the same CDNs and it's all incredible brittle. At work different parts of our seemingly simple product is down. All these services allow you spin up a business cheaply and quickly but the idea used to be you'd then setup in-house infrastructure, that's gone now, you just use external services for everything.

Dear people who run Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns: PLEASE don’t collect addresses until you’re ready to ship stuff out, or if you have to collect them early, PLEASE let people know you’re about to ship so folks can make sure the address is correct!

Also, if you end up in strange creepy public lists, you should know that blocking the person removes you from their list. Up to you then to decided if you want to soft block (block/unblock to get removed and unfollowed) or hard block.

You can replace "women" by any under represented group in tech or any group of people that are usually targeted by social media harassment in my last tweet.

Twitter is now pushing lists of other people in the timeline. As if the timeline wasn't already messy noise.
So, now is a good time to remind you to avoid making public lists like "women in tech" because those can be used for targeted harassment. Keep those private.

@natecull People were always afraid of AIs, but for the wrong reasons.

Instead of "what if the AI becomes too smart and decides it doesn't want or need humans", the real concern is "what if the AI is really dumb and programmed by really dumb people but people take important decisions based on it's (wrong) conclusions because they think it's smart".

Good morning

20 minutes of cleaning (8) 

Wrapping up and winding down.
Put away the clothes I'd folded earlier, put the clothes drying rack aside so I could put some bags and clothes into the wardrobe.
Hung up a small load of laundry.
Put my desk in order again.

That was enough tidying and cleaning for one day. Maybe I'll put away a few things, but definitely not another 20 minutes in one go today.

i need a shower ^_^
