@mdrockwell @numericcitizen I switched to DDG long ago too, and Google couldn’t pay me to go back to them. The control that corporation has over content — and the internet — is terrifying. Unless you use something else you see what Google wants, and it’s about to get worse.

@peterimoore I recall an article expressing concern that DDG surfaces extremist content if your search doesn’t have enough legitimate results or isn’t common enough, but I haven’t experienced that. I treat Google as a backup for search and maps, and don’t often have need for it.

Jessica Walter, ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘Archer’ Star, Dies at 80
Damn, this one sucks. I’m not familiar with all of her work, but I am very familiar with and love Arrested Development. Lucille Bluth was one of the all time great characters. I’ll miss her a lot.

@dandycat “I don’t know who that is and I’m not sure I want to find out.”

4yo: What are you defending?
Me: My dissertation.
4yo: Why do you have to defend it?
Me:
A man riding in a cart points at the sky and says “Tradition!” He’s Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof.

@kimberlyhirsh “How did this tradition get started? … I don’t know.”

Man I need to rewatch Fiddler—last time I saw it was freshman year of high school.

ETA: Also, did you add the alt-text to that GIF? That was super cool to see.
