So @dcid and I are having a debate at the moment.. a very heated one..

Context:

We pushed out the documentation for API's recently and on the page I wrote: "Application Programming Interface (API)"

This led to a multi-day debate and argument on who spells out API... thoughts? It's ok to tell Daniel he is wrong, he is strong..

Web 1.0: Decentralized. Every company hosted their own email servers, sites, DNS, etc.

Web 2.0: Centralized. Controlled by Google, Facebook, Amazon, Slack, CloudFlare and others.

Web 3.0: Decentralized again? I doubt the web2.0 owners will allow it without a fight.

I wonder how many hours are wasted by bad timed traffic lights.

Don’t you guys feel what you say and do offline is tracked and used by players like Google Apple Netflix and whole bunch of others to offer personalised content in their offerings. I repeat offline. For instance I am talking about trains 🚊 in general to a friend offline in person and after few hours I visit App Store to check for updates and I see game suggestions for train, the simulator, is this sorcery or science. This happens in third world countries.

Great article about the new CSAM + privacy concerns that are coming to iOS devices.

I forgot how much fun the old Nintendo Wii was.

Installed it for the kids and they are preferring it over their new game consoles.
