This month I developed a workaround to WordPress/Jetpack’s (terrible) CAPTCHA, replaced “love” with “butt” in song lyrics (snortle), and argued with a pension provider that I shouldn’t need a doctor’s letter to justify changing my gender on their website from “not provided” to “not specified” because that isn’t actually a change of gender identity, just a change in how their systems store gender.
I also shared ideas on the Web’s position as a universal platform making it attractive as a universal solution, its approach to URLs as one of the (many) problems with AMP, and a link to one of the most-complex and interactive Abstruse Goose comics ever.
