Quote: When I started to think of how to implement easy Unix pipes in Raku I expected it to be a daunting task. It wasn’t. I have come to the conclusion that “Raku” is actually a verb with the meaning “making things fall into place”.

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)

Imagine what a plot twist it'd be if it turned out Bill Gates wasn't trying to inject people with tracking chips, and actually the tracking chip was in the social media app those people were using to warn people about Bill Gates.

The EU has just adopted a set of guidelines to determine how repairable something is!


This is the first step towards mandating repairability score labels on new products, which is the first step towards a future where electronics last as long as they did in the past.

Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:

1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.

2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.

3. Use camel case in your hashtags.
