“Link In Bio” is a slow knife
"...killing off links is a strategy. It may be presented as a cost-saving measure, or as a way of reducing the sharing of untrusted links. But it is a strategy, designed to keep people from the open web, the place where they can control how, and whether, someone makes money off of an audience. The web is where we can make sites that don’t abuse data in the ways that Facebook properties do.

Links take us to places where we can make choices that Instagram never would."

It never ceases to infuriate me that links on Instagram just don't work. "Link in bio" drives me spare, and worst of all, it is never the fault of the people resorting to it. This is good stuff from Anil Dash.

Yeah, this is good / this is roughly the internet I used to know and still know / not everything is terrible.

Tiger’s Shot | Five Players
"While everyone else is going sleek and elegant and natural, Tiger is all experience points and loading screens and instant challenge pop-ups and club-tuning holodecks. Skate feels like skating, Fight Night feels like boxing, and Tiger feels like a game about golf." I don't like golf; I love computerised golf. I don't like Tiger; I love Links in all its forms, and before that, Leaderboard. This is a brilliant - if long - piece of writing on a short history of PC golf, and what's wrong with Tiger in this day and age. (Apart from, you know, the whole sex-addict thing).

53 CSS-Techniques You Couldn’t Live Without | Smashing Magazine
Hmn. Some good ones in here - a fair few nasty hacks with Javascript and poor markup liberally smattered around, though. Caveator factor.
