One of the fun things about working on 2.0 for TIL is finding website tech that might just work well with hosted blogs.

oh… tumblr does the gross account sign-up wall now as well? And look, an advert for… jobs at Automattic.


We now live in “people leave the roof of their convertible down in a public car park” territory.

Honestly, I’m not sure I’ll ever be a city person again.

Unpaid, but productive.

Hi 👋

If you’re looking at the reply box to an announcement from a software developer, and they have in fact not made that one update you care about it is okay to say absolutely nothing.
