Some Things About `alt` Text
I'm sure you know about alt text. It's the attribute on the image tag that has the important task of describing what that image is for someone who can't see it for any reason. Please use them.

I don't want to dimish the please use them message, but some interesting alt-text-related things have come up in my day-to-day lately that are related.

5 weeks ago by Linkmadsen Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets: Nick Banks, Jarvis Cocker, Candida Doyle, Richard Hawley: Amazon Digital Services LLC
i liked this doc. not very descriptive of the band's history, but who needs that? i love pulp's music and this movie had enough. though admittedly i paused it a few times to watch other live performances and music videos of theirs on youtube, so maybe it didn't have enough music. it showed the right amount of jarvis cocker's quirkiness and a lot the sights and sounds and people of sheffield which i found charming.

i got into pulp when i saw the music video for "like a friend" on mtv's 120 minutes in the spring of freshman yr in 1998 in my dorm room, so i was 19. bought "this is hardcore" cd and loved it. got into 1995's "disco 2000" and "common people" and therefore most of "a different class" a few years later. don't regret not knowing about pulp in 1995 b/c 1995 16 y/o me was probably not ready for pulp.

the next decade and a half or so, for me pulp was just listening to "common ppl" probably a dozen or so times a year and "like a friend" probably half a dozen or times a year.

then about a yr ago, i listened to "this is hardcore" in its entirety when driving for business at night btwn orlando and tampa. fell in love with it all over again 19 yrs later. was impressed with my younger self for being able to appreciate lyrics more targeted to a mid to late 30s person than a teenager.

Facebook invites submissions for “Secure the Internet Grants”
As part of its pledge to offer $1 million in defense research, Facebook is accepting proposals to "Secure the Internet," Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos announced in a blog post yesterday. Proposals can get up to $100k each and are open to academia, NGOs, and non-profits, with the goal "to spur development of technology that may be applied in practice, rather than pure research." Focus areas include "anti-phishing," "abuse detection and reporting," and "security for users in emerging markets," among others. Proposals are due by March 30, 2018, with the winners announced at Black Hat USA 2018.

Learn more about the program at link above or access more details and the application here.
