Great to see @KrishBhasin championing #Firefox's amazing privacy protection tools, ie Multi Account Containers https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/ as a way to limit blast radius of tracking #TechNott
How can we assume that the layperson can say that they knowingly "opt in" to terms of service when they're incomprehensible, some great points in @KrishBhasin's talk at #TechNott tonight about the privacy implications of online advertising
Really interesting talk at #TechNott about high performing teams and building safety culture. I'm a huge fan of this, and embracing blameless culture, and now I've got some new tips to apply to it, too! Thanks @tom_geraghty
@tom_geraghty is sharing some interesting learnings about high performing teams at tonight's #TechNott
Very much looking forward to tonight's #TechNott, not least because it'll be the first meetup I'm owning every interaction first from my website in #IndieWeb fashion, as well as converting hashtags to tags on the posts themselves!

It's a hard life being a cat #caturday
But when it gets right down to it, if permissive open source is free candy, copyleft is a free puppy. If you want a puppy, a free one is great. If you don’t want a puppy, receiving a free one by surprise can be costly and awkward.

The only problem is that the industry makes folks feel like they need to, which isn't fair for people who don't have time ie who have other commitments like children

Happy #HomebrewWebsiteClub from Nottingham!
A fairly easy result for #HomebrewWebsiteClub - don't try resending Webmentions (for two weeks) if the target doesn't support Webmentions
Although I don't condone Vim bashing (as a Vim user, and because it quite often tells you how to exit) these are pretty good

Tomorrow's fun will be reinstalling my laptop to remove BTRFS. It's over a year since I said I would (https://www.jvt.me/posts/2018/12/22/leaving-btrfs/) but I've not got round to it, and I've messed up my docker install
It's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham tonight! https://www.jvt.me/events/homebrew-website-club-nottingham/2020/01/08/
I'm not 100% what I'm working on - it may be finalising my Meetup.com Brid.gy integration, or may be just on my own site!
A very interesting read on choosing a license to protect the author's income, which I get, although realistically (at least) the AGPL has been written to ensure that the end users always get the code, not that the authors are protected.

Reminder that it's the first #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham of the decade tomorrow!
Hope to see some of you there for building / working on your personal websites https://www.jvt.me/events/homebrew-website-club-nottingham/2020/01/08/
Been watching #GoodOmens this evening - lighthearted, tongue in cheek, and some wonderful David Tennant
