On the news,
- Kottke: The dirty car artist, awesome.
- It's on: adtech / surveillance capitalism vs. ad blockers: Raymond Hill (gorhill, author of uBlock Origin) on Chrome crippling the webRequest API enabling ad blockers, uBlock Origin gets de-listed from the Microsoft add-ons store, Google to restrict modern ad blocking Chrome extensions to enterprise users. Folks, it's more than ever time to leave Chrome, Firefox is a very capable browser, and Mozilla is not perfect but still a bajillion times more ethical and user-focused than Google. HN1, HN2, Reddit.
- Jonathan Blow - Preventing the collapse of civilization (Reddit, HN). Skip the pretentious title and a few excessively broad claims, and stay for the reasonable reminder to push for simplicity in software engineering.
