> In this way, the concept of digital privacy shares similarities with weighty crises like climate change. Both are what the theorist Timothy Morton calls “hyperobjects,” a concept so all-encompassing that it is impossible to adequately describe [...] which invite skepticism because their scale is so vast and sometimes abstract.
> At its heart, privacy is about how that data is used to take away our control.
JOE is very lightweight, with the executable coming it at a mere 300 kB. JOE isn't light on features, however.
JOE simplifies many tedious tasks with emacs-like Lisp scripting support. It also features many simple quick commands, which can jump to the matching brace, search the buffer, etc.
JOE can also emulate several other text editors.

While all the news is about a burning cathedral in France: "An oil spill in Borneo that began over the past weekend has now spread across an area greater than the city of Paris and is heading out to the open ocean, the Indonesian government said."

"Amazon... is a fair and responsible employer without collective worker agreements"
It's really fair when one guy at the top has $150,000,000,000 and a tiny handful of ultrarich white guys elect fellow wealthy 'big-brain' guys to a board to make all decisions regarding worker conditions, pay, and what to do with profit (give 99.9% to themselves).
Capitalism is a warcrime, a global humanitarian crisis that must be overthrown.

Scott Hanselman really hits the nail on the head with this one. The USA is going to fall behind the rest of the world RAPIDLY if we don't get our shit together re: education. I'll happily pay more in taxes to benefit my fellow Americans. Get on board people, we have to work together! https://twitter.com/shanselman/status/1114116655565742080?s=09
Also we didn’t just observe the supermassive black hole once and were fine with that; we viewed the black hole over several days of observation, so we watched the gas/dust disk’s dynamics change quite rapidly. The disk is orbiting at about 1000km/sec [~600mi/sec] and nearly 90 Earth masses of material falls in every day. Early data is even suggesting the jet of material escaping before the event horizon may be pushing the black hole, moving it away from the center of M87.
It's not just JS. It's computers in general. It's a constant game of staying up to date with how to do the same old things. Take Linux. You used to be able to just run some init scripts to restart services, and check your logs in /var/log, but now it's systemctl and journalctl all of a sudden. Also, you're apparently not supposed to use ifconfig anymore? Such changes are completely pointless to 99% of the users, for whom the old way worked just fine. It's just one more thing to remember.
