Channeling my grandmother, Sarah Lincoln, “I’d rather just open my mouth and let the sun shine in!”
Back at the Hollywood Bowl for the second time this week. SoCal summers ❤️
Taking #cleverwilliam to see Teen Titans Go! To the Movies! Special times with the boy. ❤️
I've got two tickets to the Hollywood Bowl tonight to see Empire Strikes Back live in concert with the LA Phil. My son bailed on me. Who wants to join me?!
After a lot of research, I think I may be investing in a GPD XD Plus for my portable retro-gaming device. It’ll be an adventure into Android land for me, but it should be fun.
That said, there has never been a better time to join the #IndieWeb and Micro.blog has made it easier than ever before. I can’t recommend it enough.
Seeing a lot of my Twitter connections considering abandoning the platform. I’m getting close to that myself. It’s becoming abundantly clear that Twitter’s values don’t align with mine.
I’ve suddenly got the urge to build a retro-gaming handheld. The only kit I’ve found that comes close to what I want is the Freeplay CM3, but it has no analog sticks. Hmm... what to do?
This is my new favorite thought experiment. https://twitter.com/dberkholz/status/1027033539987038208
Just watched my little girl in a nine-song mini production of Hamilton. She didn’t throw away her shot! 🎭
In good news, I've pre-ordered some XDA Oblique keycaps, which are reminiscent of the classic AEK II. Can't wait to put them on!
We have an iOS-native version of Indiepaper ready to go, but I can't submit it to the App Store because of a bug with Apple. Its been two weeks since notifying them, and still no resolution. #Sigh
If you're using my service to generate an "On This Day" page for your Micro.blog site, it's now an order of magnitude faster thanks to optimization. To see the benefits, you'll just need to have posted recently! - https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories
Thanks for all the feedback on video game systems for little ones. We've decided on a Nintendo 2DS for the kiddo!
Annie was wonderful. But, I’ll admit to spending most of the show watching my little girl in adoration. ❤️
My boy @williamlacour turns 5 in a few months, and @cleverangel and I are considering getting him a video game system to help hone his fine motor skills. Is 5 too young? Are there any good games for kids this little on, say, the Switch?
Hey, Micro.blog users! I built a way to add an "On This Day" feature to your website. I've put it on @cleverangel's site at http://cleverangel.org/on-this-day, but you can (in theory) use it too! Instructions here - https://github.com/cleverdevil/micromemories
Proud to hear my pastor, a woman, preaching openly and firmly about LGBTQ inclusion in the church this Sunday morning. Praise God!
My goal? Get people off of Facebook completely, and back onto the open web, where they're in control. I highly recommend Micro.blog as a great place to land! Using https://github.com/cleverdevil/ditchbook, you can even move your data 😀 #IndieWeb
In the evenings the past week or so, I've been working on a tool to help people move their Facebook content to their own website. I've now moved most of @cleverangel's data over to http://cleverangel.org. - https://github.com/cleverdevil/ditchbook
"I love you all but your pasta choices are debatable" is perhaps the most @viticci thing ever said. #BestILoveYou https://twitter.com/viticci/status/1022903719539744769
Rugby Sevens on TV! It’s not football, but it’ll do 😀
Thanks for the great support @geteero. Your agent, William, helped diagnose a problem, and now I'm empowered to fix it. One of my generation one units is dying, but I'll be replacing it with a shiny new generation two and a beacon.
Ben, thanks for having the courage to write this post! For those of us who struggle with anxiety and depression, the current state of affairs in the world is staggeringly difficult to navigate. In my experience, one of the most helpful things is shared experiences with others who are also struggling. I'm with you, right there, struggling along side. Every day brings a new challenge. Its good to know that there are others struggling along with me. What I've been grappling with the most is wanting to tune out what's going on with our government because its harmful to my mental health, but then realizing that my exercising my privilege as a wealthy white man in that way does a disservice to those who are being hurt, disenfranchised, and discriminated against. I can't just tune it out, I have to fight! But, where can I find the energy? How can I balance my mental health with the tragedy that is going on in the world? Again, thank you for sharing. You're not alone. <3
Gross. Happy to not be a Roku customer. I'd rather pay more for quality hardware at a sustainable margin than be subjected to more surveillance capitalism. https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/20/17595384/roku-ceo-anthony-wood-ads-hardware-business-interview-business-model
What an utter disgrace. I’m absolutely ashamed of our country’s leadership.
I am blessed to live in such a beautiful place. 🏖☀️❤️
Hey, cool, Indiepaper and I both got a mention on the latest episode of @CoreInt. Thanks, @manton 😀 https://coreint.org/2018/07/episode-336-bringing-webrings-back/
A sleeping pod is like a tiny hotel room you can rent in four hour blocks to catch some 💤 in between flights!
Thank you, Guido, for your many years of leadership! An example for others to follow. https://www.mail-archive.com/python-committers@python.org/msg05628.html
On the first leg of my journey to Dubai, I watched Art of the Game: Ukiyo-e Heroes, a documentary about the ancient art of Japanese wood block printing brought to contemporary subject matter. Recommended! Now I want to buy some prints!
Sounds about right. #ATTisStankey https://cleverdevil.io/s/73hxs5m2uB.png
Thrilled to see @manton added experimental support for Indiepaper in Micro.blog! Give it a try, folks, and let me know what you think.
I added support for categorization in Indiepaper on my layover in Amsterdam. The website is updated with docs. I also updated the macOS app to add support for categories (NSTokenField FTW).
On board the first leg of my very long trip. See you in 20 hours, Dubai! ✈️
Working on on Indiepaper has been a fun project. It's involved writing Python, Swift, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and using @awscloud Lambda, S3, and CloudFront. #polyglot
I added experimental support for IndieAuth in Indiepaper today. Test it out here – https://www.indiepaper.io/indieauth.html. Once authenticated, you get an automatically generated bookmarklet and a button to click for automatically configuring Indiepaper for macOS.
Thanks so much for writing this up, Daniel! Sadly, I think I contributed a lot to your frustration by having a conversation start, and then having to jump into other life things without having it finish. I certainly didn’t intend to be dismissive in our conversation. I just had to run off to handle other life “stuff.” For what it’s worth, I totally agree with the spirit of your post. After much more reading and research (thanks to you!), my personal plan is to stop registering new .io domains. For my existing .io domains, I’ll be setting up an annual contribution to support the Chagossian people in larger amounts to help transform them into positive impact. As the original author of the comment about depression and anxiety, I want you to know I stand behind that comment. I got myself into deep trouble by going down rabbit holes where every action I’ve taken (products I’ve purchased, movies I’ve watched, music I have listened to, every little thing in the world) ends up connected to something harmful. It’s a complicated, and yes, political world. I strongly believe in being thoughtful and cautious with my actions, but I won’t do the world any good if I descend into depression and become paralyzed to act. I have to choose my battles. Thanks again for writing this up, Daniel, and know that your personal advocacy was helpful to me in understanding how I can fit into the larger context of making a positive impact on the world!
@viticci have they exposed Activity Rings in Shortcuts? It'd be awesome to be able to pull that data and then send it somewhere via an HTTP API.
