From @Vincent:

I hope this site will outlive me, somehow, in an archive. I only know how to write software, make websites and fly shiny metal things in the air… I will never create buildings or monuments.

I like this paragraph. It both speaks to what I think is a broadly lived experience in the age of the “Digital Native” and provides crucial insight within the context of Vincent’s post.

Starting to see why WP hosted costs as little as it does. Some of the missing features from using WP self-hosted might push me back into self-hosting.

Pro Tip: I will never not favourite posts that feature pictures of cats and dogs.

My 5s is no longer a paperweight; yay! Related: damn you, kitty.

My phone is currently a paperweight. Now down to using my iPod Classic for podcasts and music.

In some ways this is freeing but there are things I am missing that I can only access with the phone.

Charging my 5S has become difficult to the point of frustration. So now, I’m setting up my iPod Classic.

Uh… yeah.

Last month I put a stop to an infinity project that had become at odds with everything it had previously shown the potential to be, a toxic drain of the little time and energy I have available for work and passion projects.

Earlier today I archived my tumblr, not for the first time.

Also been actively working to use non-social media feeds for news, info, and the like.

After all of this, I am already feeling much better.

Finally moving from Lastpass to 1password. It’s… awkward.

Immediate advantage of @microdotblog over Twitter: I’ve already spent a lot more time thinking about my first posts on the former than I did when first using the latter.

Thanks for helping me be more considerate, @manton.
