Have found Murakami too weird to get into the past but maybe I should give another try. Love these answers. https://t.co/7l1ngwzkGQ

Looking for a developer to help me with a little side project. It's an existing app. Python/Django backend, Next.js frontend. Part-time, contract. Could be a whole thing! (But probably not.) DM me.

Aussie question: Was just told it’s illegal to have a hot beverage in a vehicle in Australia (Queensland). Driver cited “transport law.” I can find no reference to this on the internet. Is there any truth to it?

When I was a sophomore in high school, in a tiny rural town in Nebraska in 1986, we had a computer lab full of Apple IIs and *mandatory* programming class. I didn't realize how lucky that was at the time. I loved it and it changed my life. https://t.co/bJFVJAk3t9

Anyone used https://t.co/XofZaB1NoG -- or have a recommendation in that category (parental controls for kids phones)?

Ten years ago, I was brainstorming with @biz about a publishing platform. We talked about having a constraint (like Twitter) — not too short, but not too long. I went to the whiteboard and wrote "MEDIUM." Whatever it is, I said, we should call it that.

I (among others) was asked by ⁦@nytimes⁩ to write an essay answering the question “What is Reality?” Because I like impossible tasks (I guess?) I accepted the challenge. https://t.co/J0MX1Ki9K7

Hadn't seen this History of the Web timeline. https://t.co/O39CkY5MU4 It's pretty great. Learn your history, kids!

Feeding kids processed crap in the name of "healthy eating" (or fear that they won't eat enough) is very common and...not good. Says science. https://t.co/C2Rv7ieBtx

Just to say, there are many defensible _nuanced_ perspectives on content moderation and, also, @vijaya is one of the most thoughtful, principled people I know.

fucking chainsaws.

woah, somehow I missed that 🫤 was added in Emoji 14.0. I feel like that will be a new staple in my bag. Consider this a public service announcement in case you missed it too. Also: melting face🫠 (also, not a big fan of Twitter's emoji style. @elonmusk?)

A lot of finance consists of very educated people being shocked when something that's consistently happened for hundreds of years happens again.

Despite the market volatility, there’s still near-unlimited opportunity to build software for people that solves important problems (whether they know they have the problem or not yet)!

I think my most unpopular opinion is that I like humans and am mostly in favor of them. To me, humans are the most interesting thing on Earth. We are a catastrophe, of course, but we're also much else! We fall in love. We try to count the stars. We are so weird and sad and funny.

It is so much easier and less scary to do nothing than to do something.

I love the Bernie meme with my whole heart! I can't get enough. But it's also evidence for why we need more regular humans in Congress and the zen of Bernie: https://t.co/pPEiLtqoB8

Giving yourself permission to do the scary creative work is so much harder than it ought to be. We are raised and trained in school that we need an authority figure to tell us we have the talent or brains. But that's not true. Show up and do the thing. Permit yourself the dream.

I think the most true thing David and I wrote in Billions so far is: “in the great expanse of time, we are already dead.” What this means to me is: live w purpose. Live with heart. And even in dark moments like these, appreciate every breath you take. And the people you love.
