So they changed the live steam URL and only tweeted out the new one 35 minutes into the talk after I made a stink. Bloody hell. https://mobile.twitter.com/webstandards/status/1172866025852768257
Laura’s talk at State of the Browser in a London is about to start. Watch live here:
I get hundreds of millions of dollars every year by legitimising surveillance capitalists and enabling them to violate your privacy by default. (I wouldn’t exist without them.) Please trust me on privacy.
Why are you all looking at me like that?
OK, OK, you can stop glaring: I’m Mozilla, y’all love me. 💕
Site.js 12.4.1 release
• Easier WebSocket broadcast from DotJS routes
• Easier installation on macOS – now uses cURL, which is installed by default, instead of wget, which is not (thanks to @adamprocter for hitting the pain points and writing about it: https://discursive.adamprocter.co.uk/2019/08/27/trying-small-technology.html)
So a week in Sydney for UX Australia and a week away on holiday in Malaga (boy did we need it) and now I’m back with a stinking sore throat. Yay me. Gotta shake this thing before Reading Bodies in Berlin this weekend (https://small-tech.org/events/)
Sydney 🛫 Singapore 🛫 London 🛫 Cork
I asked Steve (@docbaty) at the after-party last night if he thought my opening keynote at @UXAustralia would lose him sponsors next year. His response brought tears to my eyes. Be like Steve.
“So if people heard the message that you said, Aral, in your keynote and their response was ‘well I want nothing to do with that conference’, well in all honesty, fuck ‘em.” – @docbaty

So I woke up in Sydney this morning to see a stream of lovely supportive messages, helpful suggestions, reports of typos, broken links, etc. (all fixed now), and 11 patrons and €144/month in patronage on our first day for Small Technology Foundation (https://small-tech.org) to support our work on Site.js (https://sitejs.org), Better (https://better.fyi), and Tincan (https://small-tech.org/research-and-development)
I just wanted to say thank you. I’m quite moved and feeling reinvigorated by your support.
Introducing Small Technology Foundation, Site.js, and Tincan
What’s all this then? Laura and I have a couple of things we’ll be announcing next week.
