Is it just me or is the Internet unbearably... the same?

Articles, images, content in general seems like they're all specifically catered toward algorithms and not people. And so more of the same content feels generated because clicks rule the world

Algorithms all the way down

Hello, I'm here because I'm interested in writing, computers and related stuff, and would like to connect with people here in particular. Not to toot my own horn, but I'm planning on making some waves. Or not. More importantly, I hope that I'll find here the motivation to write. Thanks for accepting me in!

Have been getting a ton of automated cold emails from someone about "hiring remote devs," with no way to unsubscribe. I'm not interested.

I told them this after the third email, but still the emails kept coming. So I decided to click the only link in their email: a Calendly link to book a call with them.

Let's just say they won't have availability for any other calls this week.

Entering my 31st year today. Feeling like I should be doing something new. Feeling optimistic.

A view of an article I wrote about simplified web pages, as seen through @matt 's new "tiny" view of @write_as :writeas: blogs. Simple styles, no web fonts, just text. I like it.
