what's so weird to me is the insistence on their own speaker. a live music streaming service seems like a no brainier concept

Using a web app framework to build a website means yea, you can use JavaScript to set where buttons are. I do believe it's mostly for like, calling a server to decide what text to out where

The div stuff is probably cruft, the sort of thing that could be removed but people don't because it might cause an issue that they wouldn't be able to catch because of all the different places html has to render

both of these problems are caused by web devs using more and more abstract frameworks that add junk to the markup. I think html/css frameworks are usually justified, they can handle weird edge cases and are really easy to build something quick with. most developers don't have time and aren't rewarded for making something that doesn't have <div><div><div> on it

these big javascript frameworks started because people needed to build webapps that work like desktop and mobile apps, but are being used in places that aren't really appropriate in order to add useless visual flair, heavy advertising, and track user behavior

srsly I'm a gay man and I specifically do not feel safe in the democratic party because they've made it incredibly clear that you have to be pete buttigieg perfect to get a pass from them. they don't actually care about gay people except as an exploitable voting block
