Saddened to hear about the death of Tony Hsieh. I never met him, but I loved his book “Delivering Happiness” and his utopian-esque work after Zappos. He was an outlier in compassion among rich tech guys.

Upgrading through breaking changes in Eleventy and Tailwind took more time than designing the new contents page for my blog.


Giving a Climeworks subscription is a gift to the recipient and all of humanity.

Suck some CO₂ out of the air.

“Hillbilly Elegy” felt like a time machine. I grew up in Appalachia and am same age JD Vance. Critics seem to lament other narratives not getting a movie too or that JD did not escape conservatism when he escaped poverty, but it was a fair depiction, not poverty porn or slumming.

Working on my first real Ember.js app in 4 years and remembering how much I love making Web apps. A lot to catch up on, but also so many new superpowers.

Okay so EU Member States -- led by Germany, the land of privacy® -- propose again to prohibit #e2ee #encryption because, you know, #terrorism and stuff.

Today is the Transgender Day of Remembrance.

The new Kylie Minogue album is closer to what I wanted Robyn’s follow up to Body Talk to be than whatever Honey was.

Is there a Swagger/OpenAPI for Mastodon server-server API? This garrulous #ActivityPub spec is killing me

The bad news is that the Apple M1 raised the bar for hardware with nothing close to competing.

macOS Big Sur is fugly.
