Someone needs to take a truly fresh approach to web browser UX. Separation of work/personal identities, "project" spaces with collections of windows/tabs, new models for organization beyond tabs (they scale terribly), privacy toggles, more!

 

That said, here's my potentially controversial view on the state of web browsers: a rendering engine monoculture is less of a problem for users than the fact that web browser user experience has completely stagnated.

 

While I am definitely sad that Microsoft has decided to exit the HTML rendering engine game, and even more sad that they picked Chromium, I can understand their business reasons. Likely the right move for them.

 

Reflecting on re:Invent after digesting the announcements, and its becoming increasingly clear to me that many should leap right over containers, and adopt functions. Problems to navigate, for sure, but the future seems clear.

 

👋🏼 Boston! 🥶

 

Another week of travel, this time to Boston to visit the @MissionCloud east coast crew. LAX ✈️ BOS.

 

@aaronpk see you there! Maybe we can have an impromptu HWC?!

 

Regular season is wrapped for both of my teams. I’d like to see the Jackets move on from Paul Johnson. It’s time. As for Miami, that was one of the biggest letdown seasons ever. Richt is the guy, but he needs to make some coaching moves: OL, OC, QB. Fight to keep Diaz.

 

The wife is watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade, a big tradition for her. I find parades completely intolerable, so I’ve got the football game projected on another wall while we cook! 🤣

 

Chess Pie and Oreo Cheesecake are done. Turkey carcass is in the pressure cooker to start the gravy. Turkey skin is roasting in the oven to a nice crisp. Mighty are the preparations!

 

Really enjoyed watching “Ralph Breaks the Internet” at the El Capitan in Hollywood today with the fam. Such a fun movie!

 

So, Micro.blog community... any other requests? These little projects are fun!

 

I built a little extension to Micro.blog that lets you easily add a photo grid to your website. Thanks to @manton for making Micro.blog extensible! –  https://github.com/cleverdevil/microgram

 

Made a delicious keto friendly fried shrimp dinner this evening. “Breading” was made of almond flour and pork “panko.” Fried in coconut and avocado oil. Tasty! 🍤

 

This Rams-Chiefs game is a perfect example of why the NFL is without a doubt the king of sport. My goodness!

 

There are more amazing apps being developed for iOS than for any other platform. Period. I know the iPad has a long way to go, but the momentum is there.

Python 3.7 for AWS Lambda! And there was much rejoicing. Especially by me. 🎉

Janet is the best character in The Good Place. I will fight you if you disagree.

 

Outdoor screening of Wreck it Ralph in our front yard by the fire pit! Pizza, margaritas, neighbors, and fun. Can’t beat LA 😀
