Hello Readers.

I’m Max Antonucci. I write code, blog posts, notebooks, and musings.

As a programmer, I code for the front-end and focus on JavaScript and web accessibility. I'm also writing more Ruby and Ruby and Rails.

As a writer, I write to remember lessons I've learned in programming, mental health, philosophy, and life in general. Or random things I need to get out of my head.

As a chainsaw juggler, I don't do anything since I don't exist.

Recent Writing

My blog is where I keep my big lessons. Sometimes they're important code knowledge or concepts. Sometimes it's career or life lessons. Other times it's broad changes in how I think. But they're all short stories taken from the novel of my life.

Recent ExoCortex Knowledge

The ExoCortex is where I keep all my reference knowledge. It covers everything from coding, soft skills, nonfiction, and anything else I find useful to remember.

Recent Notes

Whatever I want to write but can't quite fit into my blog or ExoCortex goes here. From the profound to the silly to the random, it shall be scribbled in a note.

The next time someone claims that a pandemic policy is similar to what “Germans were put through in Nazi Germany,” I’m asking for more details. When was this policy implemented? How specifically was it meant to discriminate against German Jews? What was the public’s reaction? Are there records of any Nazi officials formally establishing this policy? Was this before or after the hundreds of deaths in the Night of the Long Knives?

Why? I have a hard time believing Hitler’s rise to power and the start of WWII and the Holocaust involved slowing the spread of a virus, wearing face masks, or waiting a few more weeks for a haircut. If they’re serious, I assume they care enough to base an accusation this heavy on evidence. If they’re not serious, why should I listen to someone who makes such stupid comparisons?

In a pandemic, video games aren’t the only good time-murdering diversion. Sometimes a little drawing is great to lower the buzzing in our heads. Colored pencil drawing is a favorite of mine, even on a tablet.

A bonus (for those of us with button makers and lots of free time) is the final drawings can be put on buttons. What fun is art if it can’t be needlessly shown off?

Two buttons on a table, one of them with the complete image of a girl kissing a boy on the cheek.
