One day the Micro.blog team will include a Mastodon Developer, for sure. 😂
testing the new bookmarklet
TIL about Whoop and now I know that I definitely lack any interest in getting a new Apple Watch.
A fitness tracker without the screen and screen-based computing? Yes please.
I like Letterboxd — it is a great example of how a modern social network should behave, from what I’ve seen — but I’m going to put the time in to create a local set of data for my film-viewing and then post selectively to my blog.
Keeping my Letterboxd account in the meantime.
The great thing about the new UI for the Micro.blog Mac app is that I can now train myself out of immediately going into Conversation view for when I want to reply — I wasn’t a fan of the previous menu-based design for interacting with posts.
I enjoyed reading the first week of Jason Becker’s new project, “Letters”. I’m already excited about the notion of this type of project spreading throughout Micro.blog.
When people complain about “the long dark cold nights of winter” I’m over here absolutely loving my winter clothes and the spooky dark and the refreshing rain and the sound of rain on the windows and the sweet comfort of a good hot drink and… just, I love it. ❄️
Last night, thanks to TaskPaper, I used the Mac’s Script Editor for the first time.
Between this, the likes of BBEdit and the well established culture centred around the foundations of the web such as text, it’s fair to say that switching to the Mac was a great decision.
Tiffany White has organised a fundraiser, having been left in a bad situation thanks to… well, the world really. Let’s help her get back on her feet!
Good luck, Tiffany. 💪
Now that we live much closer to London and life here is definitively much better when compared to our previous situation, I’m going to spend some time thinking about Micro.blog meet-ups and the like. I had thought about this before now; it turns out moving is literally the worst.
I’ve been thinking about the Twitter account for TIL, especially in light of the work I’m doing for 2.0. Despite the temptation to disassociate entirely, it’s important to be realistic about the sheer number of people who still blog there; it will remain as an exit sign.
Can anybody confirm that it is the year 2023 and Apple Calendar has no Mark All As Read for the events inbox?
As well as the 2.7 release of the Mac app today, there are a couple of other very nice touches to Micro.blog. Auto-linking usernames will hopefully now involve fewer people using workarounds.
One of the things I am most looking forward to learning about Micro.blog themes is Hugo templating. Specifically the mental model involved; I’m going to understand it in such a way that I can equate template X to X part of the blog. Understanding infrastructure is helpful for me.
Time to spend the last hour of the year putting away festive decorations and preparing a glass of whisky to welcome the new year.
Enjoyed Andy Nicolaides’ post Being An Introvert. I’m unsure if I would call myself an introvert, however much of what Andy has written here feels familiar.
Jamie Thingelstad’s post On Audience Capture is well worth a read. This is a good example as to why he is one of my favourite writers here on Micro.blog.
We didn’t buy Flickr because we thought it was an amazing business opportunity—it was losing staggering amounts of money, and nobody else seemed interested in the potential.

This foundation is a very good thing. Long overdue.
Mastodon posts above 300 characters make my timeline worse. I hope there will be ways to limit such posts via timeline settings and that Micro.blog resists the temptation to go above 300 characters for truncating.
Shorter posts, even including images, are great.
Delighted to have seen Adam’s work progress so well over the past year.
Cruyff, Maradona, and now Pele… the touchpoints of modern football are gone.
Maybe I’m hopelessly naive, or too generous towards developers but the Release notes section of the Flickr blog looks pretty good to me, specifically in light of where the platform had been before it was bought by SmugMug.
Some of the criticism in this thread is quite harsh.
Anyways, dozens, and all with their unique handwriting. And today, for whatever reason, that was all I was focusing on, each unique handwriting. In my mind, I was like, “what typeface would that one be called?”
A great question to ask.
