A picture of a perf trace is worth a thousand words. Video is what moves stakeholders to act on improving web performance. So here's a little cli tool to take those DevTools perf traces and convert the screenshots into video with a bottom timer. https://justinribeiro.com/chronicle/2019/10/16/generating-video-from-a-chrome-devtools-trace-with-devtools-to-video/
"Justin, what do you think of the latest argument against web components?" How to put this: Web Components Have Already Won Whether You Like It Or Not. https://justinribeiro.com/chronicle/2019/10/14/web-components-have-already-won-whether-you-like-it-or-not/ #usetheplatform

I've never attempted wet plate, but Shane Balkowitsch's work is an inspiration. Capturing Greta Thunberg at Standing Rock on that medium is just amazing. https://emulsive.org/articles/darkroom/wet-plate/greta-thunberg-capturing-the-voice-of-the-21st-century-using-150-year-old-wet-plate-photography

You may think I’m bucking the trend. I’m just self-hosting content; this isn’t a radical idea or concept. I’m not breaking new ground, just seeding my existing 40 acres. Let’s see what I grow.
Lazonick's "Profits Without Prosperity" (https://hbr.org/2014/09/profits-without-prosperity) seems to be making the rounds today (he has a new book with economist Jang-Sup Shin out in November) . Still vastly relevant 5 years on; the reform on open-market buybacks needs to happen, though I'd be hard pressed to say that significant damage hasn't already been done.

I ♥ the web and say words on The Web Platform podcast. Work on web performance and help companies build on the platform. I still shoot film.
