Watching Georgia lose is fun. Let’s hope this continues!

Credit to both teams, what a game! Let's hope that OU can pull out the victory.
Wow, what a game. Sad to see UGA win any game ever, but they deserve it with how they played.
This is great! I'd love to see @evergreen_mac support the broader #IndieWeb via Micropub and Microsub! We're doing that in Together – https://github.com/cleverdevil/together – but would love a native macOS alternative. Excited for @evergreen_mac!
Love to see all of the new activity on Micro.blog after the latest 💩☔️ over on Twitter. Welcome, everyone!
I've seen the narrative that Amazon Linux 2 is AWS' strategic foothold into hybrid peddled quite a bit, lately. Seems totally off base to me. Its the developer story, folks!
Remember in the early days of AWS, Ubuntu had a foothold as the developer desktop Linux of choice, and that resulted in mass deployment of Ubuntu in EC2? Remember Docker's meteoric rise, prioritizing "works on my machine" as a deployment model? Its all about the developers!
So, yes, Amazon Linux 2 is *primarily* about the developers. Make it as frictionless as possible to do the same thing locally as you do in AWS, and you'll win the hearts and minds of developers. Can Amazon Linux 2 also capture some other parts of the market? Sure.
I'd say, "a little bit" of hybrid, and a *lot* of developer/portability.
Wow, what a day in computing and security! I’ll have more thoughts tomorrow...
Its 2018. Change is in the air. Can you feel it?
Mitigating these vulnerabilities, like most, isn't about "public" vs. "private," its about operational excellence and agility. New vulnerabilities will appear all the time. How fast can you mitigate?
We're in for *many* more exploits thanks to these flaws. If your organization isn't committed to being on top of it on your own infrastructure, its time to start considering a move to someone who is.
Back on a ketogenic diet for 2018. Ever since the election, I’ve been coping by eating whatever I want. Time to drop some of this Trump weight! 💪🏻
That block by Mariota was amazing. See ya, KC.
Sad ending to a fantastic season for the Rams. Two turnovers in the first half were a killer. Falcons also benefited from a load of uncalled PIs, but they played a better game overall. Deserved win. I hope the Falcons go all the way!
Looking forward to reading your site this year, Ben. You're always so thought provoking!
Great progress is being made on Together - https://github.com/cleverdevil/together - an open source "reader" for the open web, with support for IndieWeb standards like Micropub and Microsub. Check out this quick demo – http://share.cleverdevil.io/JNrG4pVNfY.mp4
The only saving grace of Georgia winning the natty will be constantly reminding them that UCF went undefeated and that their title is tainted. #LiesThatHelpMeSleepAtNight
I've been spending my commute re-"reading" The Dresden Files audiobooks, starting from the beginning. Currently enjoying Grave Perl (Book #3), and am reminded that James Marsters does an incredible job bringing voice to the books. 📚
Headed to Dodger Stadium with the family to see Cirque du Soleil. Hooray for weird French circus fun!
Happy to have moved my website's MySQL database to RDS. Three cheers for less maintenance 😀
Heading to see Joe Biden speak in DTLA at the Orpheum Theater with Lacey. It’ll be good to get a dose of political sanity!
Joe Biden drag raced Corvettes with Jay Leno and I never want to imagine anything else.
Hey, @BeardOps, have you seen Classic Programmer Paintings? This one made me think of you: http://classicprogrammerpaintings.com/post/148027314949/we-rolled-our-own-crypto-pieter-bruegel-the
Thus begins my entry into the mechanical keyboard hobby. Oh dear.
Looking for a way to experiment with Lambda functions? Take a few cron jobs that you run on your pet VMs and convert them to scheduled Lamba functions! Your pets will become easier to make cloud native and your "cron jobs" will now be reusable.
@manton I'm also using Hulu Live. Had too much trouble with PS Vue. I'd like to try out YouTube TV, but there's no Apple TV app, sadly.
After hearing Joe Biden last night and Pete Souza tonight, I’m reminded of just how grateful I am for the eight years of service of Barack Obama as President. We were so blessed!
ICYMI, I posted about the next step in my career: https://cleverdevil.io/2018/heres-to-whats-next
Great idea. I'd love to see this happen.
If you can’t score a TD from the 2, you don’t deserve to win. Especially in the playoffs. Sad for the Falcons, but it’s time to take a hard look at your offense. Underachieved all season. Finally bit you. Go Jaguars, I guess? 🏈
Listening to Tony Romo yell at a team for laying an egg in the playoffs is deliciously ironic. 🏈
Finally set up my tester Lutron Caseta dimmers in my living room today, and I’m impressed. I think I’m gonna put these things everywhere soon.
Watching cartoons with my boy. He’s currently digging on some mid-2000’s anime, and I think we should watch more cartoons together 🤪
Welcome to the IndieWeb 🎉
I’ve been free of traditional cable/satellite TV for a little while, and mostly it’s been good. That said, the UX for Hulu on Apple TV leaves a lot to be desired. Many missed opportunities to both embrace what is good about traditional cable & to innovate. Instead? Muddled mess.
I’m two days in, and the new job has me absolutely overflowing with excitement about the opportunities ahead. Oh, and the challenges.
But, you know what is the best? I’ve got a whole new group of smart, talented people I can help mentor and grow. Nothing excites me more than helping build up other people. Is there anything better?
That reminds me: we need more talent. Yesterday. If you’re an engineer looking to dive in deep with AWS across a broad set of problems and customers, let me know! Diversity is key. Bring it!
Just heard that @textism is gone and I'm gutted. Believe it or not, Dean (and his cohort @jasonh) were pivotal in shaping my view of computing and, in many ways, my career. Rest well, Dean. The world will miss you.
Another great post about Dean. Makes me pine for the good old days of blogrolls, meetups, and the TextDrive VC100! ❤️
Blogs were the real social media.
I've made it! I've officially pissed someone off with my mechanical keyboard sounds.
Headed to San Diego to take Lacey to see Hamilton this evening after a (hopefully) amazing dinner. Then, a night in a five star hotel suite! Merry Christmas to @cleverangel from the whole family 🍾
Thank you to all who are marching today. Your voice must be heard, and I'm with you! You matter.
Turns out that, yes, Hamilton is just as amazing the second time.
As I descend deeper into the madness of mechanical keyboards, I pine for a web store to create and order fully custom keycaps, where I can pick profile, key size, color, font, etc. ⌨️🤓
At dinner last night, I completely ignored my diet. Bread, potatoes, and dessert. This week, I’m going to have to be entirely committed to my keto cause!
I’m fairly confident that my next step is to acquire a k-rad license plate.
Great news from @brentsimmons on his view of the #IndieWeb.
Friends! My new job has me thinking about possibilities and strategy. If you’re one of my cloudy friends, I’d love to schedule a chat with you! Preferably locally. Preferably with 🥃.
Here is a question for ya, friends. If I set up a trip to the Bay Area, how many of you would sit down with me and chat? Drinks/lunch/dinner/coffee on me!
This is precisely the type of transformation we can drive for our customers at @Reliam, and @AgileBits is using many of the same tools, including Terraform. Great blog post!
Me: “William, make up a superhero!”
William: “Ummm.... CAPTAIN POOPYPANTS!”
Me: “What’s his superpower?”
William: “He farts... FOR JUSTICE!”
Outfitted the remaining shared spaces in my house with Lutron Caseta dimmers and switches today. Oh, and for good measure, I set up an automation to dim my lights when I start watching something on @Plex in my living room. 🤩🎉
Off to Las Vegas on business. 🎇💸🕳🎉
👋🏼 Las Vegas
Serious question: can a non-profit or not-for-profit be the target of anti-trust / monopoly charges? If not, every for-profit health insurance provider is screwed. (Good riddance).
There’s no doubt that this initiative, if truly about reducing costs and increasing quality / coverage, has the potential to improve the lives of those with employer-provided healthcare. But, what about those that have to buy on their own?
