We're glad to share the Servo project roadmap for 2023: servo.org/blog/2023/02/03/serv
Let's work together to achieve these goals.

The carbon footprint of NFTs on Ethereum wasn’t looking great before The Merge, but it was nothing compared to on-chain Bitcoin NFTs

Yesterday Bitcoin mining company Luxor mined the largest block ever, containing almost exactly 4MB of data. Only 63 transactions could fit into the block, as the NFT used up the rest of the available space

The carbon footprint: ~888 metric tons of CO2, equivalent to the per passenger carbon footprint of taking a flight from New York to Tokyo and back - 466 times

@bcantrill dropping some smokin' hot parenting wisdom... such a great talk, and a shame that it's so surprising to hear a talk about the intersection of technology and actual humans and how humans work. We need more of this!!!


They're far more accessible than RPis, and more powerful (I think?), you can get Linux on them fairly easily iirc... Might need to buy a couple and try it out 👀

I’m finding lots of deals online for $40-50 Chromebooks… Has anyone ever turned a stack of these into a compute cluster??

Facebook/Meta laid off 11,000 people and now is doing 40 BILLION in stock buybacks. None of these companies care about cost cutting, they saw an opportunity to suppress wages without any criticism and they took it. cnbc.com/2023/02/01/facebook-p

I made dalgona coffee this morning! One of the few times I've made a recipe from YouTube that turned out pretty much exactly like the video

@jnsgruk lobste.rs is where I get most of my interesting tech content! The comment section is much much tamer than HN from what I understand. It's also more systems-y content posted and moderation is very strict, so things rarely go off the rails/off-topic.

When there's no room for cars, there's room for everything else.

Saw this on r/terriblefacebookmemes... but I wholeheartedly agree tho??¿¿ 😳🤔😬

@davidgerard These are 100% the phrases I use most often when speaking to my Mexican parents! /s ;P I'm duolingo-ing French rn, and I'm now armed with many similarly useful phrases

Never forget, the Dutch invest €595 million annually on urban biking, resulting in €19 BILLION saved in public health care costs alone. That’s how smart govts do the math on investing in better mobility.

Let’s be clear — it wastes public money to NOT do it.

@simon this is such a great idea!! I kinda already do this with private notes in Notion, now gotta move them to somewhere publicly accessible in our Notion space!

Here's an organizational hack I've used a few times which I think more people should try: run your own personal engineering blog inside your organization

You can use it as a place to write about projects you are working on, share TILs about how things work internally, and occasionally informally advocate for larger changes you'd like to make

Crucially: don't ask for permission to do this! Find some existing system you can cram it into and just start writing

Good vibes here
