“New post on launch” is a phenomenal feature in @gluon. Mix with “Focus mode” and you have a brilliant app.

But why go through the effort of blogging at all? If you like to engage with the world of ideas, blogging is one of the best ways to do so. Writing and publishing forces you to solidify and clarify your thoughts.

Happy to see more major news organisations push against the influence of Twitter.

We need clearer lines on the web, rather than these blurry lines that only reward base attention-seeking and shallow celebrity.

We met a border collie puppy today during Hogan’s walk 🥹

To all of those who have fought against the pandemic: thank you. You have performed miracles and deserve so much more attention than you have been getting.

People who have continued to work, care workers, those in the healthcare industries, medicinal innovators; all amazing. 🙏

Earlier tonight was the third session of a new D&D campaign. Oof I forgot how rough level 1 can be.

Thankfully, we levelled up at the end of the session. 😌

Making private promises. Remove the performance and all you have left is truth. Tiring but attainable. Difficult but substantial. I am holding myself to my own account, none other.

Looking to improve your fitness? Get a golden lab. 🤯

Metal detectors in the subway? I mean, sure, that makes sense.

The administration of running a home is like putting infinite scroll into a task manager.

To this day, Four Candles still has me in hysterics.

With the continuing decline of the BBC and the forthcoming decline of Channel 4, my interest in TV is only going to continue its own downward trajectory.

I always enjoy spotting new things on the Micro.blog web app.

… I’m a private person … I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good then you should go do something else wonderful, and not dwell on it too long… just figure out what’s next.

I believe that our interactions online should be worth something, should be more meaningful than metrics and anonymous validation.

11 days with Hogan. He is… well, we will forever know the time before Hogan and the time after.

I wish there was a separated “design mode” for Micro.blog. Switching between blogs because I want to do some non-design work becomes annoying relatively quickly.

The Micro.blog community remains both the best and worst thing for your wallet 😂

Fretting about “the world” or “people” won’t help you to solve any problems. All it does is distract you from the work of making things better.

Stop fretting. Start working.

Super glad to be personally invested in a social network that doesn’t have a billionaire tech-bro on its board of directors.
