It's almost surreal reading business news lately, at least in the US. Between the US Fed hell-bent on putting all economic pain on the poor and causing a major recession/depression to news from Fedex, who had embraced consumer shipping during the pandemic, screaming about a global recession largely because the pandemic-era boom they saw wasn't permanent (though this later sentiment extends to tech and beyond too). The future is definitely not bright.

Headless WordPress where you can still write templates for routes with the same distinction as the WordPress template heirarchy (index.js, single.js, etc) and where blocks render as easily in headless as regular WordPress is really going to be great. Bonus in that you can take your front-end component and easily use it as a block in the editor too.
Rather than risk promoting an extremely irresponsible (to put it nicely) event I had temporarily muted dozens of accounts and hashtags associated with it and with things around it. Those mutes expired last night and... holy shit I didn't realize how nice Twitter would be without a lot of that shit. I really need to get off that network.
PSA for those who use Apple devices. Be sure to go through your device settings after updating to configure the new settings how you prefer, as well as disabling settings that Apple re-enabled with the update. It’s tedious, but worth it. I already see an improvement in my battery life with all the telemetry disabled.
The fact that a tool like this even needs to exist makes me sad. https://github.com/vashpan/xcode-dev-cleaner
