Seventeen years ago, I was setting up my first blog using MovableType on my Powerbook G4, and some clever Python scripts. I still have every post, right here in this site! 🎉 #OwnYourData #IndieWeb
Visiting Atlanta and I’m so happy I don’t live here anymore. Traffic here has surpassed LA, the weather isn’t nearly as good, and the politics are trash in comparison. I’m all-in on California at this point.
The latest price increase from @Hulu on their Live TV service has pushed it beyond the cost for traditional cable or satellite TV, with significantly inferior video and audio quality. I’m back on the market for an alternative. Suggestions?
Coo coo, kachoo. What a masterpiece! #Watchmen
Hey, @jack, I’d like to nominate @aaronpk and @t to lead @bluesky, perhaps with an assist from @benwerd. They’ve got quite the head start with the #IndieWeb!
By the way, I posted this via my own website... how decentralized of me!
Replied to a post on werd.io :
I think its a great thing that Twitter is going down this path, but I do wish that they’d build upon prior art. I’m also fairly suspicious that this is just a convenient way to work around policing its platform, which it clearly needs to do.
Off to Las Vegas for AWS re:Invent this week. Reach out if you want to meet up for lunch or drinks!
Why aren’t we calling the Cybertruck the Elon Camino?
Parents, do you remember what it was like to sleep in? To wake up without a tiny human jumping on your head? Yeah, those were the days!
Pie for breakfast is my favorite part of Black Friday. 🥧 ☕️
Why do ovens have a button for toggling the internal light off and on? If the oven is on, the light should be on. If the oven is off, the light should be off. Simple. #TheDesignOfEverydayThings #FoodieUX
The Mandalorian chapter three! 🔥
They’re really doing a great job with this series.
Lots of great replies to my query re: Slack threads. Speaking of Slack, it'd be fantastic if I could organize channels into groups. At present, I have many channels in my workspace, wish I could arrange them, group them, and collapse them.
Does anyone actually like Slack threads? They just don't fit my brain at all.
True facts, also, while it doesn’t clutter the channel list, it’s not like it needs help among 200 channels or so, but more pernicious than that, it creates a secondary location to the channel list, the oft overlooked “All threads”, which you’re then trying to find stuff in too
After watching the first two chapters of The Mandalorian, I am so excited for the rest of the series. Incredibly good start, and potentially the best new Star Wars content since the original trilogy. If you were on the fence about @disneyplus, I’d encourage you to give it a whirl.
I enjoyed Rogue One as a whole, but didn’t think it was all that great. The writing was all over the place, though it did finish quite strong. In my opinion, The Mandalorian is better… so far. Chapter two really cemented that for me. A big step up from the first chapter.
Curious to hear both of yall's Disney rankings. For me: 1) TFA - very fun, establishes the new characters 2) TLJ - very interesting, if uneven 3) Rogue One - 2nd half of movie is great 4) Solo - fine, unnecessary 5) My 8 yo enjoys Resistance cartoon Haven't watched Rebels
I go back and forth between TFA and TLJ. I think the highs of TLJ are higher (Rey + Kyle in Snoke’s chamber!), but agree with you that TFA was much more even. Rogue One was a bit of a missed opportunity because of its really poor start. You nailed Solo – “fine, unnecessary.”
I think I'm: 1) Rogue One - don't hate the 1st half. maybe because I've read all the novels. 2) TLJ - loved this. 3) TFA (mostly because, when I think about it, it didn't feel like a new story. just new characters.) 4) Rebels - solid. 5) Solo - agreed. Haven't seen Resistance.
My six year old boy and I have been participating in a “no potty talk” competition and he has beaten me for three consecutive days. #poop
Found a pretty nice universal remote to replace our Apple TV remote. But, it’s not quite perfect. Biggest hurdle is figuring out if it’s possible to program the volume buttons to control the HomePod volume while it’s set as the audio output.
Interested in a nice headphone stand for my home office. I'm a sucker for beautiful design and natural materials. Any suggestions? An integrated Qi charger in the base may be nice, too...
The overly-aggressive memory management of iOS and iPadOS 13.2 is a total buzzkill for productivity on the platforms. I really hope Apple fixes this in an update soon.
I have a 2019 football happy! Yay! #BeatFSU 🏈 🙌🏻
