The last and one of the best episodes of the season. I'm off to listen to Justified and some Lonely Island!

This quote could be attributed to almost any time in the past decade.
At this time in Europe when we are beginning to hear populist speeches and witness political decisions of this selective kind it's all too easy to remember Hitler's speeches in 1933, which were not so different from some of the speeches of a few European politicians now.
On climate change:
There is an expression in Spanish: “God always forgives, we forgive sometimes, but nature never forgives.” We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted? Who speaks now of the floods? I don't know if these are the revenge of nature, but they are certainly nature's responses.

This is a beautifully lightweight web page from Apple that illustrates how to construct and adjust the face shields they're producing.
For your first ever visit, on a broadband connection, it takes less than 2 seconds to load. Well under a second if you refresh. Fonts and the animated GIFs are the bulk of the traffic between you and Apple.
Between Apple, Ford, Dyson, Tesla and others turning their manufacturing might towards items that will benefit the battle against Covid-19. Hopefully these contributions will make a real difference to how long we're impacted for.

Nice bit of wizardry here from Tom Scott, he's using YouTube's APIs to periodically update the title to reflect the number of views it has.
As Web 2.0 surfaced, I was just starting out in web development. Public APIs were just starting to get going and progressive enhancements were all the rage. It's sad that a lot of services, or the original incarnation, no longer exists. And I find the current state of the web pretty annoying as progressively enhancing something would probably reduce the weight of a lot of websites down to a fraction of what they currently are.
