@Jay5w @lmanul The handwritten text on the cartoon reads:

“For Elon Musk, I hope you don’t mind a ‘court jester’ at Twitter or you’ll have to get me fired :-P — 2022-10”

Manu Cornet’s (@lmanul) firing story from Twitter is infuriating. Fond reader of the cartoons (not that it mattered in the context). Hope he’s fine, and everyone else affected by the firings! Hugs! 🫡 ma.nu/blog/bye-twitt…

ricmac The recent Figma acquisition proved that the web is where it’s at for design tooling. But what about devs? I talked with @CompuIves, creator of @codesandbox, to discuss why developers are adopting and how his product differs from @stackblitz. thenewstack.io/the-race-to-be…

@stoyanstefanov @jaffathecake Notification Triggers (web.dev/notification-t…) is a weird “failure”: it was behind a flag, in an origin trial, behind a flag, in another origin trial, and now behind a flag on deathrow, mostly due to the underlying Andro

À propos of nothing (⤵️): I maintain an off-Twitter archive of all my tweets on my own server: tomayac.com/tweets/. It’s based on Tweet Nest (github.com/graulund/tweet…), an archived PHP project and I use a hacky fork as the foundation of my code.twitter.com/hdv/status/158…
