In isolation it looks very similar to the ideals of communism but in the broader context it exploits contributors more than an average corporation.

Cross-tooting Kelly Sutton:
Periodic reminder: it’s faster to create ~20K objects in Ruby than to make one 5ms round trip to the database.
Be selective about what you optimize in your apps!
We're really worried that this could affect services like ActivePub/Mastodon instances, opening them up to lawsuits or requiring expensive filters.
I'm a freelance ror/js developer living in the mountains of Colorado.
After living in Denver for years, my biggest struggle is keeping in touch with other developers.
I'm hoping to make some connections here.
