The bittersweet consequence of YouTube's incredible growth is that so many stories will be lost underneath all of the layers of new paint. This is why I wanted to tell the story of how, ten years ago, a small team of web developers conspired to kill IE6 from inside YouTube and got away with it.
The viral internet, a simple typo, and the power of crowdfunding will bring Will Novak, a 35-year-old man in Phoenix who works for the city of Mesa, to Vermont next weekend for the bachelor party of a complete stranger.

Google has given a chance to its users to look around the garage where it took birth. On the occasion of 20th birthday of the company, the search giant posted a Google Street View Tour of the Menlo Park, California garage where it all began in 1998. The company has recreated the space and has added every single detail to it. It has also included a secret room filled with classic Google memorabilia. The YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki owned the garage which served as Google’s first headquarters. It was the place where the foundations of Google were laid by the co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. The firm wrote in a blog post, “To celebrate Google’s 20th birthday, today we invite you to travel back in time and take a virtual stroll through the original Google Garage in Street View – (almost) like it was 20 years ago.”

A new Google Chrome extension will allow Twitter users to read tweets from US President Donald Trump in the form of a child's handwriting.
"Make Trump Tweets Eight Again" was created by the team at The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and transforms the tweets into messy and colourful scrawl.

The lava lamp usually gets a bum rap as some kind of lowbrow psychedelic entertainment system for people who are too strung out to enjoy any stimulation of real substance. In fact, it turns out that a wall of lava lamps is a critical component of the encryption effort responsible for about 10% of internet traffic.

While there is no doubt that this feature is very useful to some end users, in prior versions it was available only as an add-on. Now integrated and turned on by default, it's just become another memory hog, requiring fewer open tabs or constant relaunching of the application.

Massive proxy service Cloudflare's CEO made a hard call yesterday: he kicked The Daily Stormer, a neo-nazi white supremacy website, the hell off his service. While he had every legal right to do so - they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone - they have to grapple with some very real ethical implications of their actions. Whether you find the Daily Stormer's content and worldview repellent makes no never mind - true freedom means we tolerate opinions and viewpoints we don't share - this act brings us down the very slippery slope of censorship and net neutrality.
His blog post goes over what was done, how they came to the decision to do it, and what it means for their - and our - future online.

Anyone of wealth can publish their thoughts anonymously here, limited to 980 characters. To prove that they truly are among the 1%, they pay $980. There are no identity verifications. This way, they can tell the whole world, including one another, what they truly think and feel, under the cloak of anonymity. Their published message will be visible to the whole world to see, under a randomly generated pseudonym for extra anonymity.
