"One fun side effect of doing our project (and associated prototypes) on Glitch is that the history of our collaborative public development of the system is fully tracked." There's also a good discussion going on the orange site: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=285623…
1/ Could traffic in New York start looking greener and quieter? Maybe. The push for congestion pricing has been slow, but starting next week, @MTA will begin a series of hearings to kick off an environmental review that could be the final hurdle. buff.ly/3nH1u4B

I’ve never seen this photo before. How extraordinary. No surprise that the great Dr. #JohnHopeFranklin was there, but love the concept of a “U.S. Historians contingent” marching for voting rights. Let’s bring this back. twitter.com/whataboutclass…

You can check out the app for yourself at glitch.com/~tenmile and because it’s on Glitch, you can remix it or dig into the code to learn how it works.
The way it was made is fascinating; of course the part that jumped out to me: “@jf started by loading the GitHub repository for GameBoy-Online into @glitch and directly making some edits. To his surprise, it was actually pretty easy to get one of our … Playable Quotes to work.”
This is absolutely brilliant. ⁦@playablequotes⁩ lets you reference any moment in a GameBoy game with real, live playable code. It’s like a YouTube video that you can embed or cue it to a particular point, but with a game instead of a video. joel.franusic.com/playable_quote…
During the 8am rush hour the M14A has had busses arriving every 20 minutes. Just went with my daughter for the 1/2 hour walk to school. If we had waited for the bus she would have been late. So walking is now faster than taking the bus So much for that free metro card🙃@2AvSagass4

@MnDPS_DPS Nothing says "consciousness of guilt" and "evidence of premeditation" more than "we can't stop police from murdering innocent people during traffic stops so we're going to issue don't-murder-me equipment"

This is a bit of what I was tilting at in this Q&A —over the long term on social media, you have to run away from being known for a particular meme or schtick, or it will take over your life & eat your brain. twitter.com/getembedded/st…
This is a really good, introspective look at how the incentives of social media corrupt our creative impulses as we try to express ourselves online. Ed’s been doing a lot of great writing lately; this is one of the best. twitter.com/edzitron/statu…
The FBI lied to cover up sexual abuse by Larry Nassar The agency also lied to protect Brett Kavanaugh from 4,500 sexual misconduct complaints FBI Director Christopher Wray today: “I don’t have a good explanation for you.” Just damning.

It cost $75 million to pump 75 million gallons of water out of the subway after the hurricane. SEVENTY-FIVE MILLION THAT'S ONE DOLLAR PER GALLON Are we finally gonna adapt to climate change @GovKathyHochul? Or are we gonna spend this over and over and over and over and over?

What that post doesn't note is that moderating live chat ("a river running in real-time" as they describe Discord) is *wildly* different from moderating a support forum. We encourage communities who are considering making that switch to take this into strong consideration.

This is an important thread about how hate gets monetized online (the classic technique of tweeting lies to drive traffic, then deleting the tweets before being held accountable), as well as a good look into how we can defund such hate sites. twitter.com/chadloder/stat…

I don't mind being sent a magic email link to login to something, but I hate when it's the *only* option and I can't just put in a password.
This whole thread is good, and thoughtful, but this key point about what leadership *is* resonates far beyond the current conversations about vaccines. twitter.com/ASlavitt/statu…
I’m grateful for the coverage of Rikers this week. Grateful to the legislators who visited. Grateful to @KeithPowersNYC for yesterday’s hearing. But I’m worried, too. The proposals from the mayor, in this Op Ed, etc. are no enough to meet the crisis. nytimes.com/2021/09/15/opi…

I feel that document didn’t get the attention it deserved — watch out for these tactics, folks! Some highlights: the Semantic Nitpicker, who asks an endless series of questions. The Dog Typing on Keyboard, who posts frequently using poor grammar just to clutter up the thread.

Last year I reported on a consulting firm called FTI that is behind a lot of fossil fuel PR campaigns. And I got ahold of a document produced internally at FTI that lays out various strategies to influence public discourse. nytimes.com/2020/11/11/cli…

There were several reasons I refused to stay in the “secure location” on the 6th. This was one of them. Few people want to discuss the reality and implications of this because it’s politically difficult, fraught, and unpopular, but it’s right there. And we need to talk about it. twitter.com/kyledcheney/st…

Where do they say “per serve” instead of “per serving” when quantifying food? That phrasing makes my teeth itch, but I’m wondering if it’s regional or something.

What we've asked these women to do time and time again is mind boggling. Any reporter who's covered the Nassar case, incl myself, will tell you just how much this story has impacted them. The fact that we're still doing this 5 years later is incomprehensible.

I want to note this is not uncommon for survivors navigating the legal system. October 2021 will be 4yrs since I reported to the NYPD and later FBI, nothing has happened. The system fails all of us, it was meant to break us and exhaust us. It is not a justice system twitter.com/AlannaVagianos…

WATCH: @McKaylaMaroney complete opening statement. "This was very clear, cookie cutter pedophilia and abuse and this is important because I told the FBI all of this and they chose to falsify my report and to not only minimize my abuse but silence me yet again."
