I like to think my blog is interesting because of what I write here, but it's also interesting in how it works. And this is something, I think, anyone with a little experience in HTML can appreciate. If you open most web pages of news...Show More Summary
This is so recursive, I can't tell you how confused I am, I can only imagine how confused others are. But it works, so here goes. I just added a new tab to Scripting News, called Liveblog. It is based on the RSS feed for my liveblog. The liveblog, as its name suggests, is faster than Scripting News. Show More Summary
I think myword.io finally looks good on a phone.
Yesterday I introduced two people on Facebook, people who I thought would very likely get off on each other's imaginations, humor, positive outlook. So of course I introduced them. I think there's real magic possible in these things. There are billions of minds on our mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. Show More Summary
Explaining myword.io yesterday, to Doc, in a tweet: "Ev built a nice house but didn't put a door on it. So I built one so I could have a door." This happens a lot in software, it turns out. Then I tweeted "This happened with Matt Mullenweg's house too. Show More Summary
Tweets are objects Twitter calls them tweets, but in programming terms, they are objects. Objects have attributes. If an object has a picture attached to it, that should not be represented as part of the text attribute of the object....Show More Summary
This kind of shit happens all the time.
We met on October 16 last year at a theater district bar in NYC. It was a getting-to-know-you meeting. Lively conversation, even though our points of view were very far apart. I liked him. It's so sad that he's gone. Whenever a Carr column popped up in my river I read it from beginning to end.
I have a new writing tool I'm working on and wanted it to be easy to create beautiful essay pages from it, like Medium. But Medium doesn't have an API. So I made an essay-viewer that has one. http://myword.io/ Now, I'm not a great CSS hacker. Show More Summary
Note: Small spoiler re Boyhood movie at the very end. I read a story on Joey de Villa's blog yesterday about an over-55 community in Florida where people have wild consensual sex all the time. Being over 55 myself I have to say it sounded interesting. I'm getting ready for something different. Show More Summary
The other day my dear friend NakedJen was waking up to the power Facebook has because we use their system. She saw an endorsement by her friend, in the right margin on Facebook, of a product. It had her picture on it. She wondered if her friend had been paid for the endorsement, or even consulted. Show More Summary
This began as an outline on my liveblog, but I felt the idea deserved more attention. The Crunchies are a product of what I call the VC-backed tech industry. But that's not the only tech industry. There's so much more going on here than bankers and advertising. Show More Summary
Here's a link to my new liveblog software (still very much in development). Try viewing that link in Twitter's card validator. I see an error that isn't help me to figure out what's wrong. If you have experience with Twitter card metadata,...Show More Summary
People use blogs primarily to discuss one question -- what is a blog? The discussion will continue as long as there are blogs. It's no different from other media, all they ever talk about is what they are. We got dinged by the NY Times because all bloggers talked about at the DNC was other bloggers. Show More Summary
Last week a cover story on Newsweek about gender-based discrimination in Silicon Valley. The articles linked into the topic on Techmeme mostly had the same opinion: The image on the cover is bad. It helps perpetuate sexism in the tech industry. Obviously there are other points of view than those listed on Techmeme. Show More Summary
Seahawks fans -- remember the 12th man concept? That means there is no "they." Maybe it was a dumb call. It's a test. Do you own it or complain like a mere fan. If you're on board, there's always next year. Spoken as a Mets/Knicks fan, with no illusions about what that means.
Bloggers are your sources. You'd be hard-pressed to do your job if your sources didn't blog about what they do. Look at your stories. How many of them are about what someone said in a blog post or a tweet. A public utterance that made news. Show More Summary
Rented a car at Alamo at SFO. The guy asked if I wanted to buy their collision insurance, I said no. The guy asked "isn't this a business trip?" I asked why he wanted to know. He said if it's a business trip that I wasn't paying for, I should buy the insurance, because my personal car insurance wouldn't cover it. Show More Summary
