Jim Nielsen on disability. “1 in 5 people currently have a disability. 100% of people will have some form of disability in their lifetime.”

MoonBit, a new Wasm-first language. Still early on, but looks quite interesting. Almost as fast as Rust, too, and I like what I see on the syntax page.

Bryan Braun on good eating habits. Wise advice here.

Ronan Farrow on Elon Musk’s shadow rule. Incredibly disturbing. “There is little precedent for a civilian’s becoming the arbiter of a war between nations in such a granular way, or for the degree of dependency that the U.S. now has on Musk in a variety of fields, from the future of energy and transportation to the exploration of space.” And: “Current and former officials from NASA, the Department of Defense, the Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration told me that Musk’s influence had become inescapable in their work, and several of them said that they now treat him like a sort of unelected official.”

Julia Evans on brag documents. I’ve been calling mine “work accomplishments,” but I don’t update it as often as I probably should.
