Paul Ford's 20th year post is perfectly imperfect

In the spirit of this thing I won't be editing this paragraph.

That is the most beautiful paragraph in the post. It's pure arrogance to think blog writing can survive any better than any other form of writing we've mastered. 

 

I've surbscribed to the blog, but the last entry was in 2013, so I don't have a lot of hope for it. I've also subbed to the TinyLetter email sub. There's good writing, and then there's useful writing. I think Paul knows the difference.

iOS and OSX broken in many, many ways.

Wonder why...

MS Edge coming to iPhones. Good!

I was only recently reading a comment by someone that one drawback to using Microsoft's default browser is that it's not available on iOS devices. This plugs that gap, hopefully. I'm writing this from a Windows 10 laptop, but I can't sign up to get access to the beta of the iOS app because I'm not a Windows Insider. I guess I'll just wait for GA.

Sublime Text 2 is magic. It can do anything.

I can't believe how powerful this tool is sometimes.

lol! 280 for everyone

Can't believe twitter is stupid enough to leave it all to client-side validation. Well, we've had our fun - https://twitter.com/nitinthewiz/status/913177726420262912

Day One Chrome and Safari extensions are out!

Finally! Not being able to post to DayOne from Windows was becoming too much of a pain! Glad they've launched these extensions. Also interesting to note that they've now denoted grandfathered accounts as "Plus" accounts, of which I am one, it seems.

I like collecting icons.

BBC's TV App framework is nice

I just saw this recently, though it seems to have been around for some time now. It's a nice framework for making smart TV apps.

Liar Lyre Bird

I dunno. Seems funny. They've managed to create a neural network which can learn anyone's voice in a short time and spit out anything incriminating you'd want them to say on tape. Bonus points for having an Ethics page to talk about the implications.

Joe Coleman's site is awesome!

Pretty unique. Move the slider around...
