I've seen three competing definitions for Web 3.0:

- AI
- AR
- DeFi

I feel like we're in the early stages where there's a horse race between all three for dominance as "the next thing" in web/tech. What are the rest of y'all seeing?

@chris @schlink I do. It's connected to my Thelio desktop. I love it :-)

@saramg Given how hard it is to hire that many folks, making the 90% who know what they're doing put up with an extra few minutes of redundant training is orders of magnitude less in cost, effort, and frustration.

As frustrating as that redundant training feels.

@saramg On the one hand, yes I agree it's a bit asinine.

But I also roll out things like mandatory annual "don't click links in email" phishing awareness training. You'd think it would also be unnecessary ... but the folks who get phished LITERALLY THE FOLLOWING WEEK justify the policy.

Most engineers are smart enough they don't need the annual refresher. But the 5-10% who are stupid enough to actually need it force the hands of the policymakers.

@saramg Please tell me you're joking. I ... I can't really be THAT old.
Can I?


Went to a farm today for fresh produce. While stopped at a light notice the minivan from the cross street was ignoring the green (he was on his phone). A red pickup came up behind him - it's a 45mph zone and he was full speed.

He turned at the last minute and creamed the drivers corner of the minivan. Spun him around into an SUV in the other lane. Then came straight at me.

Thankfully I was able to floor it (thru the red) and avoided a ~45mph t-bone.

A bit shaken, TBH. He missed me by a foot.

Every time I upgrade Mastodon I'm reminded of the one-click automatic updates in systems like WordPress and NextCloud and ... most other modern web apps.

I need to find time to help build such functionality for projects like Mastodon. It would make life so much easier ...

@saramg I'd asked what I missed ... but it's probably a good thing I missed it?

I've lived here for 8 years and just discovered this in the closet... It's plugged in with exposed wires, so I'm nervous.

Any thoughts as to what it could be?

Docker Origin Story

dude1: "curl <random webserver> | sudo bash..."

dude2: hey stop that's bad!

dude1: really bad?

dude2 yeah really bad don't do it!

dude1: well if it's bad we can just put it in jail and it will be OK right?

dudes: :blobthinkingcool:

@saramg I always underestimated the power of the phonetic alphabet until I'd learned it and was forced to communicate over a radio with folks who'd never heard of it ...

I'm looking for examples folks might have of running a web server via PHP CLI. I've always used PHP-FPM or and Apache module, but both are explicitly incompatible with the Parallel extension for PHP.

That's cool, but I have a legit reason to spawn a thread and want to combat the stated problems of using multithreading in a webserver application.

So any examples of `php sever.php` spawning a full server app would be super welcome.

Not as fast as last year at this time. But feels good to be out again.

According to the toddler, cookies with coconut in them are "icky gross" so today we made strawberry vanilla cupcakes to replace them.

@finlaydag33k Friday night dinner was coconut chicken atop mango pineapple salsa with toasted quinoa.

@finlaydag33k Fantastic. We usually bake competing Saturday mornings. The last couple of weeks have been cupcakes, but I had leftover coconut from making a tropical chicken dish for dinner. :-)

Filed taxes. Ugh.

So thankful for the social services this bill ultimately provides, tho.
