Jaded people bang on about Low Traffic Neighbourhoods being “for rich people to have more fancy outdoor seating” but they’re more so people of all ages and incomes can get around without being turned into marinara.
Owners of £50 bikes and £5,000 bikes all enjoy not sharing tarmac with speeding tanks semi-consciously piloted by someone half paying attention to their to-go coffee and half paying attention to some algorithm based nonsense GPS route running late for a super important meeting.
Sure it’s hilarious I spotted a driver tindering at the wheel as he side swiped me into a blackout, but waking up in an ambulance with a head injury, broken collar bone, and fuck knows how many broken ribs is something I’d rather we didn’t all have to go through on the commute.
Ah but one day we’ll have self driving cars and all the needless deaths will stop.

This sort of thing is pretty annoying. HS2 Ltd and it’s forestry contractors can’t win. If they protect their trees with tubes to stop voles, shrews, hares and deer, eating them, they’re littering. If they don’t, the survival rate will be pathetic and they’ll be dragged.
Not cutting anything down in the first place would be a lovely but for context: HS2 Ltd is planting 112ha (hectare) of new woodland, restoring 17ha of dying ancient woodland, and improves 12ha of other woodland. This is so much more than the 30ha it has to cut down. A hectare 👇🏼 Image
My bad, that 112ha number is out of date.

“More than 650 hectares of new woodland will be planted between London and Birmingham as part of the first phase of HS2, to help reduce the visual impact of the line and create valuable new wildlife habitats.” gov.uk/government/new…

In ye olden days you needed to write API descriptions by hand, in text, with a keyboard, which took FOREVER.

These days there are awesome GUI Editors, and an interesting new generation of OpenAPI-aware frameworks are appearing, like annotations but good. dev.to/philsturgeon/t…
This cover image, which has been cropped funny and wont be removed, is a visual depiction of how useful Annotation/Comment-based tools usually are.

I got a mention in @libel_vox's awesome tinyletter.com/NetAPINotes/ for this.

tl:dr; Do not confuse proximity with accuracy
The only disagreements I've had with this article were "Um, well achtually, you don't have to write it ALL by hand, you can copy and paste some stuff to speed you up!"

Ooof. I mean, you CAN, but using $ref to split things up is way more useful. stoplight.io/blog/keeping-o…
