This is great. My preferred stack is pretty similar, swapping django for phoenix. https://anthonynsimon.com/blog/one-man-saas-architecture/

I got a local eSIM for the first time and lemme tell you: iMessage is stupidly confusing. People can’t message you in your US number if you don’t set your US number for data roaming (but it works on WiFi). You can’t use eSIM for iMessage data for your US number. That’s why WhatsApp is GOAT.

Bucket hats was one of the worst style things from the 90s that should never have made a comeback. If any of my friends wear one of those, I'd do the same I did back in the 90s: make fun of them until they realize how dumb they look wearing one.

Name a more ZIRP company than Bird. I still remember when they made Santa Monica sidewalks unwalkable (esp for those in wheelchairs or with strollers), arrogantly claiming they're the future of micromobility. Good riddance. https://x.com/kwharrison13/status/1801752937900962132

It’s a pity nobody had made a protein shake called Gym Beam (or Gym Tonic)

Saw a video today where an Israeli bulldozer was demolishing a building in Gaza, and extracting a dead civilian with the bulldozer together with concrete pieces of the building. It's all you need to know about their values.

After a year in production, I can confidently say: GraphQL subscriptions suck. We have much better tools to do the same thing, cleaner, faster, and more efficiently.

This was the 3rd time I was in Amsterdam and it is still shocking to me that bicyclists have the same disregard for ped x-ings and aggression to pedestrians that drivers have in Athens or LA. Wild!

My 3yo picked up a PS5 controller while we were at an electronics store today and started playing. Almost instantly got it. Can't wait until we start playing together - maybe Switch is the best starter one? What do you guys think?

I mark all inbound sales emails as spam. Sales people should be paying to reach me, just like consumer companies running ads on Meta or Google.

All these years in tech, I still don’t know what PMs do (that product-minded engineers can’t).

Someone should build a Mentava competitor that's just reasonably priced. They currently charge $500 a *month*, claiming in a very "let them eat cake" way that "it's cheaper than a tutor". They'll wipe them (and their arrogance) off the market. Maybe duolingo is the best fit for this task.
