suicide, tech, new biz lows 

The tech biz has had many lows, but this one beats them all.

Folks who contact a suicide help line are desperate, emotionally overwhelmed, and not making good decisions. Using that data to help mental health? Sure. Using that data for improving customer service bots? No. No, no, no.

I am beyond horrified.

The attitude that ad blocking is equivalent to piracy is ridiculously entitled. Ads take up bandwidth, they use electricity, they make your equipment outdated quicker by increasing bloat, they reduce the lifespan of your devices, they threaten your privacy, they manipulate you, and malicious ads try to entice you into compromising security.

The greatest cost is to you, the end user, it also costs the environment too, of course. The company makes a small fraction of that cost in revenue, and passes an even tinier fraction on to creators and so on. If you defend this model, you are morally bankrupt.

Spotify's cancellation system broke down—because there's so many cancellation. They also lost 4 BILLION DOLLARS of stock market cap.

Keep the cancellations going. If canceling outright doesn't work, remove your credit card from the billing page.

Here's some animated fire shader I made with Material Maker, because I needed it for a video and didn't want to simulate and render it in Blender.

I think it came out pretty LIT ;)
Not sure if I'd use the shader as is in a game - it could be a bit taxing to render.

I have some ideas on how to improve this even further, but it could also become less viable for realtime usage then...
