It might not be a surprise that I love this idea.

The Status Page

I was clicking around, looking for something, when I came across this old post by Merlin Mann: Lots of sites have status pages. I wish more people had them. My friend, Leslie, used to do an excelle…

manchmal macht es klick, wenn ich texte lese. dann kommen sachen die mir im kopf schwirren plötzlich zusammen, weil irgendwer es geschafft hat die schwirrenden dinge zu verbunden und per logik das schwirren zumindest für eine weile zu unterbinden. zuletzt ist das vor ein paar tagen robert reich gelungen, dessen leider etwas bescheuert übertitelt …

For no apparent reason I started wondering what a Twitch stream of my workday would look like. A dude approaching middle-age slowly falling into despair while typing into PHPStorm and Slack. Sounds… marketable.

That’s a good question, actually.

What do the new emoji mean?

I’ve been a fan of emoji for many years, and every year I love seeing the new ones get released. They enter our phones and most of them are pretty descriptive, but you never know how people w…

Hello

How to get on the #indieweb! (not very detailed but hopefully gets people interested!)

After messing around with the French press, the Aeropress, Cold Brew, the Moka pot and more I’m back at good old-fashioned filtered coffee and there’s just something comforting about that. Plus it tastes really good.

Why I continue to endure the internet of things

I don’t mind that my love of internet-connected gadgets makes me a punchline on a podcast but just to give you an idea of what it’s like, here’s my Apple Home app currently showin…

Basically everything has been said but not by everybody. So here’s me.

Flickr – remember Flickr? – is in the news again because the new owners decided that they would quit the (honestly insane) policy to let everybody just upload everything with abandon and restrict the free account to 1000 photos. This triggered a lot of discussion – MetaFilter is on it, obviously.
The only thing that is worrying me is the deletion of old photos – links will die away, embedded images will vanish. Tears in the rain. But they seem to be working with creative commons to at least rescue the photos which are in the commons.

Unrelated to this announcement I’ve been thinking about alternatives to Flickr – I’ve been half-heartedly indieweb-ifying my blog for quite a while and I have sort-of plans to write my own indieweb-first CMS and just like Marc I intend to follow the own-your-data premise and move the (good god) almost 7000 photos from Flickr to my own site. All I need to do is think of a way to properly move all the metadata with it. Fun! Until then I’ll happily stay at Flickr, though – I’ve had a pro account ever since there were pro accounts and the current billing cycle won’t be over until some time late next year, so I still have some time to think about it.
