Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.

Software Update for IoT (suit) #IETF104 hackathon
More than 300 people at the #IETF104 hackathon.
On my way back from #w3ctpac. This is an amazing community that I have been involved with since 2001, and continues to evolve and to work at the forefront of web technology. I'm very glad to have helped to sponsor some attendees and to have brought many TPAC newbies to join in.🕸️
Apps tracking children:
"not primarily designed for children but for family". Seriously?
