Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

Yesterday, I felt happy.

I received two packages from my courier service. One, a computer so tiny, open and capable I think I renewed my hopes with computing. Two, a letter from a community that helps me understand there's another way to look at things.

Today, I feel grateful.

«A document is not necessarily a simulation of paper. In the most general sense, a document is a package of ideas created by human minds and addressed to human minds, intended for the furtherance of those ideas and those minds. Human ideas manifest as text, connections, diagrams and more: thus how to store them and present them is a crucial issue for civilization.»

What are we currently doing to improve our experience with the Web? Are we 100% sure we're using the right tools? Are the protocols we're using the right foundation for our (digital) lives? Are we including *everyone* when we design our spaces? Is this the best computation can be?

Woke up like this.

The Twitter hack is the latest in a long line of failures of centralised platforms. Regardless, the decentralised community underestimates resilience of these platforms and remains dangerously unprepared for the wolves that howl at the door of our users.
