Another twitterstorm brewing. Something to do with John Sonmez (a minor youtube celebrity and, as far as I remember from several videos, an arrogant prick milking his audience for views). He is such an intellectual nonentity that it’s unbelievable people feel strong emotions towards him.

In no particular order whatsoever:

(links to this thread; Charles Max Wood hosts a number of dev podcasts; also not much to talk about)

Aimee Knight, a regular host on one of Charles’s podcasts. Used to be my least favourite host ever when she was newer to development. Has grown up a bit and is no longer that irritating.

A bunch of tired cliches: opinions make people feel "unsafe", and blacks/women do not have a duty to educate you (yet, somehow, keep doing it all over twitter)

Yep, she said said "safe". Feeling "unsafe" during a conversation, likely remote. How cliche is that?


Also, here’s something hilarious: Uncle Bob objected against attacks on Sonmez, and in response someone tweeted at him a screengrab of how he unsubscribes from Uncle Bob’s video channel.

I tried to find the beginning of the shitstorm, but quickly gave up. These twitter people are both hysterical (in both literal and figurative sense) and disgusting. What annoys me is that researching a developer on Twitter has a very high chance of bringing up this.

    Which/whose corporate interests is he talking about? Which corporations are interested in what? I am so confused.

    Two appearances of Noam Chomsky, in which he goes hard on the unvaccinated. Take, traffic rules, he says. Suppose, he says, I don't want to…

    Joe Rogan's episode with Michael Shellenberger is very good.
