2️⃣ Thoughts for the week #02

I think it’s a good sign that I’ve been thinking about this post all week. I can’t exactly put a finger on why – perhaps it’s because I like the fact that I’ll have a record of the nice bits and pieces I’ve found this week (on my own site), or whether it’s because I will – down the line – like the fact I’ll have a record of the vaccine amounts (As that’s something I’m going to add weekly), or something else.

I suggested last week that I’d write a separate post about Content Visibility, but with what has been happening south of the border, I’ve not really felt inclined to put it out there. Didn’t feel right, and I’m starting to learn to trust my instincts with these things. Maybe next week.

I really enjoyed (too briefly) listening to K. Adam’s techno twitch stream earlier this week. The mashup of Biden’s speech and several Japanese (I think?) tracks worked incredibly well. I don’t know why. Also, K. Adam is a really talented DJ; the mixes were seamless and the tracks flowed into one another really nicely.

For those looking to Live Stream, Project Lightspeed looks really interesting. It certainly doesn’t look easy to set up, but it’s promise for you to “be able to deploy your own sub-second latency live streaming platform” is certainly a lofty goal. 📺

Cache-Control: Immutable is new to me and this tweet from Colin Bendell suggests it removed 304 redirects by approximately 50% is interesting. Safari and Firefox right now. 🔂

SVG Filters can be inlined in CSS. My initial thoughts are about the accessibility of this, but I can certainly see use-cases where this could be useful and accessible. 🕶

It’s kind of amazing what CSS on its own can do nowadays. (I am so old). This is a CSS-only recreation of something very similar to the Stripe menu. Again, accessibility concerns, but this really shows the power of CSS. 💳

I always like to see folks focus on documentation. SidePage by Jake Prins seems pretty neat. 📚
