@brion I hope things will go batter for them from now on.
Maybe this pie-opening experiences makes them now realise that if you are not tart of the solution, you're tart of the problem.

Did you hear about the disputing pastry chefs who buried the hatchet after working a day in each other's patisseries?

They just had to walk a mile in the other's choux.

Elitism 

@tracbac You haven't heard the 1812 Overture until you've heard it performed with a period-accurate artillery division.

Elitism 

Yes – from time to time I will allow myself to indulge in elitism.

Musical elitism 

If you never listen to classical music, then I feel sorry for you.

Interesting discussion on Reddit:

Like sewing, the basics of programming really aren't that hard, though it's easy to feel out of your depth when you're first starting. And the advanced capabilities can seem like straight up magic, even to otherwise accomplished craftspeople.

But there's no requirement that everyone be a tailor or a professional seamster! Any sewing you know is valuable. Same with programming: there's no requirement you be an expert -- any amount of programming you know is valuble. Even if it's just the "sewing on buttons" of using Excel formulas or writing a simple script.

Are these people fine with the fact that Alphabet or Meta can pull the rug on them at any time…?

If I did that kind of thing for a living, I would sure as hell spend some of that income on covering multiple platforms. Having my own domain name, getting interviews in other publications etc.

Wouldn’t you?

It’s raining outside and I’m listening to Eurythmics.

Black Sabbath is such an awesome band. Can’t see that they ever would become irrelevant.

It’s very fascinating with people who live in Europe, but seem to believe that they live in North America.
