    feross (creator of this project and submitter of this thread) didn't mention his background/experience/pedigree but I can point out that he knows his shit. Check out his resume: https://feross.org/resume

    I became aware of his existence after I realized he was clever enough to set up a bot to watch new posts on https://web.dev (I used to be content lead for that site) and automatically post every new thing here on HN

  • lighthouse

    Automated auditing, performance metrics, and best practices for the web.

    I think this is a valid criticism of using scores to summarize a complex subject, and I agree that we can definitely do a better job on this.

    What's interesting is that arbitrary, unit-less scores seem to work well in products like Lighthouse [1] or SSL Labs [2] even though they're also "basically made up", as you put it. I'm curious if anyone has ideas about why this may be.

    To your point about just stating things directly, we also do that too. See https://socket.dev/npm/package/left-pad/issues, for example.
