I know that, on my death bed, I would regret not giving this a shot.

Casey Liss, Taking Risks

Out of all of the people I discovered traversing the Apple enthusiast landscape, Casey is one of my favourites. He is a great addition to the indie worker ecosystem. ๐Ÿ‘

Sometimes I just stop and think about the people who on one hand get super angry about Changing That One White Dude when a story is adapted to a different medium whilst also saying “Lol. It doesn’t matter if people see themselves in stories.”

It makes me sad every time I see statements posted as attached images or tweetstorms. A basic free blog combined with copy and paste is infinitely better, plus you can also do the crappy thing on twitter!

Listening to Merlin Mann and John Siracusa talk about Apple’s problems with attracting entry-level customers on Reconcilable Differences and they are nailing it. Apple are simply no longer head-and-shoulders above everybody else.

The move immediately triggered vows of retaliation from Mexico and the EU, which called the tariffs “protectionism, pure and simple”.

New US tariffs are set

This is the latest effort by the US government to cut their citizens off from the rest of the world.

I’m looking for the “Vimeo version” of photo platforms:

  • clear business model
    • would be happy if it’s like Vimeo in that there is a limited free version with paid tiers
  • good management tools
  • good embedding
  • at least 5-8 years old

Does this exist?

I feel sympathy for whomever follows both @Bruce and me. Although, the ability to waffle on about useless opinions with other people is surely truer to the old web than most of what I post on here, heh.

I wonder if AirPower is the canary for Apple’s coal mine.

Twitter finds a lot of horrible things permissible, is what Iโ€™m saying, and it doesnโ€™t want you to be able to filter or curate your experience. They want to sell your shit.

Matt Fraction

It’s time for me to go. Nothing is essential to the point of tolerating this shit.

Opting out of the Tracking-Industrial Complex is so much fucking work. I am keen to investigate what IndieWeb and Open Web proponents have to offer to help with this problem.
