let’s start with an uplifting new entry in the long list of articles of the “The dream of the web is dead” genre: My Internet Mea Culpa.

I’ve been working remotely for a couple of weeks now and this mostly means Slack 24/7 (or at least 12/7 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) including a pretty serious usage of the status text. (Remember IM?
