Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.

Apparently TikTok made sea shanties a thing now. Awesome! Because I'm a sea shanty nerd, I decided to make an "explainer". If you're new to sea shanties, or just want some recs, follow the thread!

customer support rant 

Wrote a German email to customer support of a company that offers all their sites and services in German because they keep bugging me about paying for a subscription I already cancelled.

I received an answer in an offending tone that was so obviously automatically translated that it baffled me.

Like, if you don't speak German just answer in English? Say sorry customer support for this service does not support your language? Don't send automatically translated emails to your customers! Or ex-customers I should say. I guess for a reason...

Red Dead Redemption 2 Spoiler, random thoughts 

Decided to finally play through the rest of RDR2 and the Tuberculosis diagnosis was quite the surprise.

I then read the Wikipedia article on the disease and the German one even has this list of depiction of Tuberculosis in art and culture (English one has its own article I am still quite fascinated by the thought of human cultural (not medical!) history as a history of living and dealing with disease.

And that RDR2, where you spend so much time shooting sooooo many people for no reason, made me think of that

If you're running a website that has user accounts and you're forcing your users to "contact support" via email to delete their accounts you're bad and you should feel bad 😡
