What I want, is for extroverts who are suddenly forced to work from home and feel depressed after a week of doing it to understand that it's exactly the other way around for introverts forced to work in open-space offices *all the time*.
When it's all over, please appreciate the desire of your fellow humans to be left alone.
the year is 2050. GTK is still preparing the move to version 4, and has collaborated with the FBI to assassinate anyone who mentions the filepicker thumbnail bug. qt stil has an open source version, but it requires you to have create an account with a valid email address and physical address, and limits applications to only containing one window.
microsoft is still "transitioning away from winforms" to the Multiversal Windows Platform, For Real You Guys, We're Doing It Platform. iOS desktop (formerly macOS) has deprecated all system widgets in favour of the cloud. google has created an artificial intelligence to randomly create and deprecate new GUI frameworks, rendering it essentially impossible for anybody but them to create android apps with "native GUIs".
the only usable framework is electron, but everybody hates it because bloat.
as people struggle to find a desktop ui framework that hasn't been bogged down into uselessness by licensing issues or lack of features, a saviour emerges from the heavens: java swing
The “Earn It” bill is designed to allow U.S. police to read any online message. Authoritarian regimes will take notice, too.
GitHub’s new notifications: a case of regressive design
During the panic about the Coronavirus it seems the UK is trying to force social media companies to “pre-screen” all content, which anyone who knows about technology can tell you this is impossible, and the US is working to ban encryption
I don’t believe it’s a coincidence they chose to do this now of all times and it’s worrying they might be able to do this
The EARN It act is a bigger threat to the internet than the fight over net neutrality. Forcing backdoors in encryption will break everything. So why aren't we talking about it like the threat it is?
By the way, can I haz a dumpsterfire emojo pls. I feel a simple 🔥 just doesn't cut it for this.

I know we all heard of the Seti@home shutdown last week, but there is a new viable project. Folding@Home has been around for nearly as long as SETI@Home, but they have turned their efforts toward speeding up research toward treatments to battle COVID-19.
If you have spare cycles, I would ask you to consider spending them here.
