Chris and Dave weigh in on some of the hot drama that happened after I tweeted a joke about CSS-in-JS. Before I did that, I also hastily linked to a podcast where wrote a few quick thoughts about some of my apprehension about CSS in JS. If I had known the post would have made the rounds as much as it did, I would have crafted a more thoughtful post not on a day there was a death in my family. Note to future self.
Anyways, I appreciate how Dave and Chris got into tribalism around technologies. It was fascinating to witness multiple days’ worth of hostility from people from different camps going at each others’ throats. Somebody even flipped someone off, emoji-style.

I think being simultaneously curious and skeptical about new technologies is healthy. I hope that people try to find a balance between those worlds.
