Viele Deutsche haben nur schlechte Internetkenntnisse

Ich schwanke wild zwischen Traurigkeit und “Das sind doch mehr, als ich gedacht hätte”: Viele Deutsche haben nur schlechte Internetkenntnisse@nico

Feed weirdness. (Sorry)

I have no clue what is going on but for some reason WordPress decided to randomly show old entries in the main feed for this blog. I’ll try to find out what’s wrong and what I can do about it.

Did Google start blocking third-party email clients?

Constantly unsatisfied with desktop email clients, I tend to try new ones once in a while. Just now I tried to use Airmail with one of my lesser used Google Mail accounts (unimportant enough that I did not enable two-step verification.) and was most certainly slightly confused when it refused to connect.

I was even more confused when this showed up in the mailbox of the recovery account:

You can switch to an app made by Google.

No. I don’t want to switch to an app made by Google – I want IMAP.

Thanks anyway. As far as I know, this is a new thing and it is a bit worrying.

These eggs are weird.

The future isn’t even here yet, and it’s already exhausted us in advance.

Basically this.

That must have sucked.

links sammeln, veröffenlichen und verdauen

links sammeln, veröffenlichen und verdauen

der dritte und wichtigste grund links zu sammeln, kurz zu kommentieren (oder ein zitat rauszuziehen) ist eigentlich gar kein grund, sondern ein zustand: weil ich gerne veröffentliche. oder teile. oder mitteile. oder gerne sehe wie und ob leute auf das was ich veröffentliche reagieren.

Ja.

Welcome to Verge 2.0

Welcome to Verge 2.0
The Verge removes their API and shuts down their Apps. With good reason:

Apps are great, but The Verge is a website, and we want people to have the best experience with our content where it is created and designed to be viewed. Which is on the web. Because we’re a website.

The end of Big Twitter

The end of Big Twitter

I think for many of us Twitter started as the porch — our space, our friends, with the occasional neighborhood passer-by.

It’s still pretty porchy for me. Which is nice, but I don’t expect it to stay that way.

  1. I still can’t manage to call them Swarm Check-Ins, sorry.

My blog’s older than Twitter and Facebook, and it will outlive them. It has seen Flickr explode and then fade. It’s seen Google Wave and Google Reader come and go, and it’ll still be here as Google Plus fades. When Medium and Tumblr are gone, my blog will be here.
