@aurooba Would you be willing to say more about "… my faith in headless is not fully there …" because I'm desperately trying to get on board with headless myself and I'm wondering what it is that hold YOU back.

1. Go to see how much a flight to Athens is.

2. Get ridiculously overwhelmed.

3. Decide I’m probably never going to fly again.

4. Wonder if anyone actually enjoys this process?

Tried to describe my job at the weekend to an older, less technical person:

– if there’s architects and builders for buildings then there are the same for websites. I’m a builder.
– Well, actually, I’m building the tools that builders use. So I’m like DeWalt or Ryobi.
– Hmm. Well. In fact:
Imagine that I’m the janitor who looks after the DeWalt store building where other builders buy the tools they use for building.
– Does this make ANY sense?! 😂

Over on Twitter someone has asked for photos of your oldest book.

Depends what you mean by oldest!

SICP was written in ‘85 but I didn’t own it until ‘95

The Little LISPer was published two years later, but I owned it a year or two earlier.

I’ve never done WordCamp Europe. But I got looking through the attendee list and genuinely might seriously consider it purely to meet and hang out with some of my favourite online people.

Has anyone built an AI that I can run presentations through that expands all acronyms to their longform versions?

Why are there so many abbreviations?

Does it actually help the reader/viewer? Or is it the content producer being lazy and/or gatekeeping?

These layoffs are now getting far too close to home. Sad for everyone involved here. 🙁

(And in ALL the places I know that have had layoffs/redundancies this week)

“Hey, ChatGPT…

Write me a story about a builder called ‘Beaver’ who goes on a quest. He should be aided or hindered (you decide) by a series of friends or villains: a scientist called ‘Rocket’; a wizard called ‘Varnish’; and a dragon called ‘Cloudflare’.

The quest is to discover the contents of the mysterious cache, and deliver it to Prince DOM.

The quest is ultimately successful but only accomplished by the solving of numerous, complex and inter-related puzzles”

The beautiful cover of the book “Engineering Management for the rest of us” by Sarah Drasner

I’m not a manager, and I don’t really aspire to be one. But this book comes so highly recommended and I want to devour it in one sitting!!

When was that “Blue Monday” officially-most-depressing-day-of-the-year? And why is it not over yet?

The news today is crap.

Yesterday was crap.

My body is old and crapping out.

Can it just be spring now please?!
