It's even worse than it appears..

  • I posted a link to a Salvador Dali work of art that Twitter thought might be bad so they blocked it. #
  • Someday Google will do the same for a blog post like that because they own the web the same way Twitter owns tweets.#
  • Then we will see that the question in 2023 wasn't whether HTTPS is good or not, rather it's whether it's good if Google owns the web. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
