Sometimes I’m an idealist indeed.

Have we stopped killing yet?

It must stop. In our life time, it must stop. No more killing. Not even by states. Especially not by states.

That’s not all—far from it—that we need to stop doing. But it’s a start. A sane start. For how eagerly and readily we kill life is sick, no matter the exceptions. It’s unacceptable. No more killing.

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead—currently manager for Developer Experience at LivePerson—and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!
