Success! My old MacBook Pro has sold 😀 Once an updated iPad Pro is announced, its mine! Any guesses on when that’ll happen? History indicates sometime in June or July.
In other news, I’m doing a cook on @JonsHotMeat at some point after midnight tonight. Pork shoulder for Easter! 🐣🐖
The Easter cook begins! https://twitter.com/JonsHotMeat/status/980341320228143105
There are zero net carbs in communion bread and wine. Little known fact. #KetoForJesus #HeIsRisen
Other than the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, my favorite part of Easter is late night deviled eggs stolen from the fridge.
Off again to San Francisco for customer meetings and the AWS SF Summit. As always, ping me if you want to meet for a drink 🥃
Thanks, @Werner for calling out that security has been an afterthought in our industry. Security is a design principle, not an activity.
Interested in running Python WSGI apps on @awscloud Lambda? I was too, so I dived in and made it happen. Check it out on @Reliam's blog – https://www.reliam.com/blog/going-serverless-with-python-wsgi-apps/ #serverless #python #lambda #wsgi #awsome
The writing has long been on the wall: Twitter is going to destroy its third-party ecosystem. Why? To focus on controlling the entire experience for their proprietary platform. If you haven’t considered the #IndieWeb, now is the time. With services like Micro.blog available, it’s now easier than ever to participate in the open social web.
I wanted to leave Facebook, so I did. I don't really want to leave Twitter, but I'm not sure they want me anymore. Without @Tweetbot, I will not enjoy using Twitter anymore. So, why stay?
Such a useful post by Chris Aldrich on the #IndieWeb! https://twitter.com/ChrisAldrich/status/982342546750783488
That’s my rep! 🙌🏻 https://twitter.com/tedlieu/status/982410071584866304
My struggle with anxiety and depression has been intensifying of late. I know I’ll be just fine, but I do hate the feeling of failure it causes me to feel as a parent. Stupid brain chemistry.
I have really been enjoying using Together for my reader lately. Especially since iOS 11.3 improved PWA support!
Well, @davewiner (and @brentsimmons), you should try out Together - https://github.com/cleverdevil/together - We're building a modern reader experience on top of feeds. See the demo video - https://cleverdevil.io/s/997O3Z778A.mp4 https://twitter.com/davewiner/status/983104661602426881
The last 24 hours of news has been nothing short of bonkers. Jiminy.
The odds of our current government properly holding Facebook accountable is near zero. But you know who has the power to take them down? You! #DeleteFacebook
TIL @Delta has a policy that you can't switch seats w/ your partner if you've been upgraded. When I travel w/ my wife I like to let her take the seat for a part of the flight. Invariably, the kids want us to switch back later. Silly policy.
I now travel with a mechanical keyboard, making me the worst person. I totally blame @slashclee.
Been thinking a lot lately about my website's data storage. Currently, its in MySQL on RDS, but its a bit of a mismatch. In the future, I'd prefer to just be storing JSON documents that are easily indexed and searched.
I've considered using DynamoDB, but its designed for massive scale, and requires a fair amount of tweaking and fiddling. Overkill. I could just store everything in S3, and build indexes manually, but that seems inefficient.
I'm coming around to sticking with RDS, but maybe switching to PostgreSQL with its native JSON functionality. Still, I wish there was a simple JSON document database for AWS, which was backed by S3 storage, available as a service.
Interestingly, the "Object Tagging" features added to S3 in 2017 make it very close to what I am looking for as a simple JSON DB. That said, afaict you can't yet query for objects in a bucket that have a certain key/value tag. /cc @awscloud
I’ve suddenly realized that the “KIDZ BOP” series, which covers popular music with singing kids, is pretty much whitewashing modern hip hop for white children.
War is always a tragedy. Always. Regardless of who is in power, it should require congressional authorization. That said, at least our actions were taken in concert with our allies in France and Britain.
I would much rather be a nation that welcomes refugees, and focuses on taking care of all people here, than a war hungry interventionist power. War is expensive and harmful. Money better spent on healthcare, education, and programs to aid refugees.
I've started a short-form podcast (a "microcast") at http://cleverca.st. Its hosted on Micro.blog and I've really enjoyed working on it so far. I've already made improvements from episode 1 to 2, especially with sound quality. Check it out!
Thanks for the kind words, Chris! I hope you’re enjoying the microcast so far.
@colinwalker I've truly enjoyed my "On this Day" feature! I have my website automatically push the content to my reader application on a daily basis. Such a fun reminder of my memories.
@jsnell great post! I have loved getting back into mech keyboards. I use a TADA68 at work, with beautiful MiTo Canvas keycaps – https://cleverdevil.io/2018/this-keyboard-is-finally-just-how-i-want-it – and I have a stock NightFox for home/travel – https://kono.store/products/nightfox-mechanical-keyboard
What should my next episode of clevercast be about? – http://cleverca.st #podcasting #microcasting
Sous vide salmon, marinated in Korean Gochujang and coconut aminos. Seared in a hot pan with coconut oil and toasted sesame oil. Tasty!
I'm starting to realize that most of the time, I don't want a NoSQL service, I want an on-demand, consumption-based relational database service. @awscloud Aurora Serverless may just fit the bill. Too bad its still in preview!
That thought also drives home what "serverless" is *really* all about: directly aligning cost with application and system performance, not some arbitrary unit of compute that is persistently running and begging for your attention.
I’ve been working hard on getting healthy this year, physically and mentally. I’ve lost over ten pounds, already, through diet. I’m trying new medicine for my anxiety/depression. I’m taking a fast from alcohol for the next 30 days. 💪🏻
Also, to others who struggle with anxiety and depression: it’s OKAY to be open about it. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Millions of us struggle with you! ❤️🧠🔬
Say it with me again: Google isn’t, and perhaps never will be, a Product company. Also: end-to-end encryption is a requirement for messaging these days! What are they thinking? https://om.co/2018/04/20/allo-goodbye/
Westworld is back tomorrow! 🤠🤖
I've really been enjoying Baí beverages lately. Great for Keto practitioners, with only 1 net carb per serving. My favorite flavor so far is "Andes Coconut Lime." So delicious. Highly recommended. 🏝
My kids are watching an episode of The Magic School Bus that talks about internet routing and DNS. It’s actually pretty on point! 🤩🚌
I never thought I’d utter the phrase “don’t put the light saber in your butt,” but here we are. #parenting
