Things I've quoted.
Due to debts and a bad employer the first 18 months in Berlin I had a net income of zero. I was living off bread and cheese while watching colleagues buy new Apple Watches and expensive lunches.
I want to remind everyone that not everyone who works in tech is rich.— Tatiana Mac (@TatianaTMac) August 19, 2019
Many of us struggle to pay rent/bills, don’t know where our next check comes from, and are in massive debt.
We don’t post about it because capitalism shames the poor and poverty, even though it creates it.
Because it's always, always, ALWAYS white men who feel the need to respond the way that you've just done, Joshua.
"I say this very clearly because a 20-something white man will soon comment on this post and suggest that's what I meant."— Joshua Steele (@joshukraine) July 31, 2019
Why white? Why man? Great article, but attacking people's race/gender is not helpful. "Someone" would have been sufficient.
holy star shit 😳
*screams with joy, internally*
Since there is so much interest in this, I made a graphic to round up the different CSS properties that are coming to help us style underlines. Some work in some browsers today. All have fantastic fallbacks, so you can start using them now. (They do NOT break anything in IE11!) pic.twitter.com/62sBntssE6— Jen Simmons (@jensimmons) June 27, 2019
Wishlist: Pay more attention to the design of the Core experience. Give users choice to disable Advanced. Define effective and consistent way of handling SVG icons in Core. Design more in Core mode. Consider CSS vs JS CTM more deeply.
Shit, now I gotta write a talk.
I would like to see Heydon wearing his CSS Claws (Crabby Super Snippers) on a hot stage.
When TERFs attack trans women, they attack all women. 😠
So why, a couple of nights ago, did I spend over an hour comforting my daughter as she sobbed about her hair? Because she's distraught that women stare at her in public toilets. It happens every time she goes without me, she says. They stare because they think she's a boy. 2/— 🔬 Samantha 🏳️🌈 (@SamGouldson) June 14, 2019

Engineers can't solve #a11y problems that are rooted in faulty business or design decisions. They can _make compliant code_ to cover over those decisions. But it won't result in fundamentally better software if it's not conceived with inclusion in mind.
I think the white boy racists started circulating my tweets. Hi there, fucknuts! Please tell me about bitcoin and the MGToW movement. 😂
THIS IS THE ONE BROWSER FEATURE I WOUD EXCHANGE A KIDNEY FOR.
If you're in Berlin ans want to learn about CSS then you should go to this!

WIRED: Super happy that I get to speak at @FronteersConf in October! 🎉
TIRED: It will probably be my final time speaking anywhere as an EU citizen. 😭
We so often consider constraints to be a negative and they stop us doing what we want. In this talk Charlie Owen (@sonniesedge) will tell us how constraints are something that should be sought out and embraced, especially in the infinite chaos of the web.https://t.co/ID229iYCbj pic.twitter.com/xjQLYqSUe6— Fronteers Conference (@FronteersConf) May 29, 2019
For all those designers and devs out there who assume a user will always do the right thing, and always be in the best situation.
When fellow designers bash users for not being smart, I get sad. I am one of those users.— Tatiana Mac (@TatianaTMac) May 29, 2019
Now I think I am a fairly intelligent and savvy traveller. And I also manage to do mindless stuff, which I will recount here.
Users in a sterile testing environment present their best.
It must be absolutely EXHAUSTING being a poorly-conditioned man. Combative dudes, the ones who never stop "engaging": just fucking shut up and let someone else talk.
Here's something I've been studying on here for a bit. A lot of men, seem to have been conditioned to think that telling someone that you disagree is the same as asking them a question. Like the way they learn to engage is by *creating a conflict*.— Marco Rogers (@polotek) May 22, 2019
What I don't understand is how we haven't yet invented the milkshake trebuchet, or seen the formation of a company of milkshake archers.
Documentary footage is what happens when you mention to @dorobot that you have never seen a Triago. (What is a Triago? We're still not sure). ♥️
