I think I’ve officially gotten to the point where, if a podcast doesn’t have a transcript, I’m skipping it.

First, because actual accessibility. Second, because it’s a whole lot easier for me to quickly scroll through a transcript to find the thing I was interested in.

Read Asset Pipelines in Eleventy by Max Böck

“Asset Pipeline” is a fancy way of describing a process that compiles CSS, Javascript or other things you want to transform from a bunch of sources to
a production-ready output file.
While some static site generators have a standardized way of handling assets, Eleventy does not. That’s a good thing – it gives you the flexibility to
handle this any way you want, rather than forcing an opinionated way of doing things on you that might not fit your specific needs.
That flexibility comes at a price though: you need to figure out your preferred setup first.

Replied to Proposal: Treat FLoC as a security concern (Make WordPress Core)

Google is rolling out Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) for the Chrome browser. TL;DR: FLoC places people in groups based on their browsing habits to target advertising. Why is this bad? As the …

I’m responding to this on my own site because I can’t get the interface on the Make blog to do the click right when attempting to reply over there.

I 100% agree with this proposal. Users can only choose to opt in or out if they’re able to make an informed decision about this, and for better or worse, they can’t do that. I’m pretty sure Google will market this as some sort of user-beneficial feature, assuming they tell non-technical users anything at all about this. WordPress, according to its own “bragging”, (I’m using that loosely), powers something like 40% of the web. We can’t continue as a project to pretend we have no impact on it.


I agree with this entire thread, especially the action part.

Don’t get me wrong. Awareness is great. But we’ve been doing awareness now for I don’t know how many years or even decades, and it just seems to me that for every step forward we take, there are six more going backwards.

If awareness doesn’t become actuion, it’s just feel-good talk. And I’m starting to wonder if all the talk being generated around accessibility isn’t getting to a point where we’re seeing diminishing returns.
