Now that I think about it, it was a very good business move for apple to popularize the term app.

App and apple are very similar words and I would think there's at least some potential for subconscious association, even when referring to other platforms that use the word app to refer to software.

@welt let's just call them smash requests cause we're just smashing code together.

Then you could call software development smash bros

Hot take: HTTP request types should just be "push" and "pull"

@welt then we could confuse people on what we meant by pull request.

It's funny that apathy and pathological have similar root words but you can't use apathological to refer to apathy.

I hate setting alarms cause I always wake up 2 hours before they go off and my subconscious lizard brain is like "No sleep, you'll be startled by loud bleep device, must stay alert for danger".

@welt Yeah I think I understand that, I was just wanting to cite the meme.

@yogthos brand loyalty only hurts consumers in the long term.

I don't know why so many people fall into that trap and get stuck trying to justify when they do bad instead of taking their business elsewhere like a reasonable person.

@deltarae I love the achievement you get when you search boobs on the spaceship computer.

Contributing to free software requires privilege. Even regular contributors might sometimes find themselves without it.

Time, focus and money. You might find yourself lacking in one of these at various points in your life.

While software projects from startups move like streams, most free software projects move like glaciers. They move slowly but they keep moving for decades.

Being away from a project doesn't mean you have to give it up. You can join back later.
