This week’s experiment: a YouTube Short. Vertical video, one minute long at most.

It’s tough to fit things into just a minute! My first attempt had ten extra seconds…
It is a lot less work overall to make a sixty second video than the ten-minute ones though. Which was nice because I’ve had less time these last two weeks.
... can you tell the point where The Algorithm decided to start promoting my video?
wow i've really made it on youtube, my first ever troll comment. recorded here for posterity before i nuke it, lol

My “the project isn’t run by one person or company” tshirt sure is raising a lot of questions answered by my tshirt
Listen: I really like and respect most of the folks on this list. I get it, I do. And hey, maybe literally everything has changed in the past eight years. I doubt it though.
Just ask yourselves: if Rails really is truly independent, what was the last major feature that DHH didn’t like that made it in? Where’s the stuff Basecamp doesn’t use? Why does the community replace like half the stack?
