Movie Review: Baby Driver is a Fun Ride

4 out of 5 stars

Earlier this week, I had a chance to finally catch Baby Driver in my home theater. Edgar Wright is my favorite active film director, so I was really looking forward to seeing what he would do with a dramatic action film, rather than hisย mostly comedic recent work. Baby Driver didn't disappoint! I thoroughly enjoyed the film, though not as much as some of his other work. Highly recommended, especially if you're a fan of Edgar Wright's unique style!

 
 

The more I read my Micro.blog timeline, the more I think @manton should add oEmbed and URL unfurling. Lots of people posting links, and the reading experience would be improved. Putting the onus on the client software isnโ€™t going to work, IMO.

 
 

Made a quick change to my site to directly ping Micro.blog on updates. Bypasses my need for WebSub, which seems sort of flaky at the moment.

 

Amazon's new $70 Fire TV is tiny and 4K-ready

Dolby Atmos, 4K HDR, and only $70. This is why the Apple TV 4K disappoints me so much. It would be a premium device at $99 at this point, and itย still doesn't support mode switching or modern audio!

 

Observer: OKCupid Founder Bets People Will Soon Fall in Love With Encryption

I'm a huge fan of Keybase, and have been watching it evolve since the early days. I love this bit from the article:

[Keybase's]ย next hurdle is even higher: Convincing the public that it should demand products that secure their data. Encryption has always been the digital world equivalent of eating your vegetables. Keybase wants to make them into nicely roasted vegetables, with a light honey glaze.ย 

Here's to free range, farm-to-table, gluten free encryption for all.

 

Mentally and physically exhausted after an intense few weeks. Taking @WilliamLaCour on a birthday getaway this weekend. Much needed!
