Simon Willison on facebook

(2 days ago) Today, there’s no reason to go to a comedy website that has a video if that video is just right on Facebook. And that would be fine if Facebook compensated those companies for the ad revenue that was generated from those videos, but because Facebook does not pay publishers, there quickly became no money in making high-quality content for the ...

Simon Willison on security

(2 days ago) It not only describes a real flaw in the M1 silicon but also deconstructs the whole culture of over-hyped name-branded vulnerability reports.

Goodbye Zeit Now v1, hello datasette-publish-now—and ...

(2 days ago) Apr 08, 2020  · Goodbye, Zeit Now v1. In November 2018, Zeit announced Now v2. And it was, different. v2 is an entirely different architecture from v1. Where v1 built on Docker containers, v2 is built on top of serverless functions—AWS Lambda in particular. I can see why Zeit did this. Lambda functions can launch from cold way faster —v1’s Docker ...
