I hadn’t realized that The Atlantic had succumbed so completely to the clickbait headline disorder that’s running rampant in the online “news” community. 😞
Whelp, my talk proposals to @WriteTheDocs Portland and OSCON have been rejected. 😞 Won’t stop me from going back to Write the Docs though — I was there last year for the first time and it was excellent. Tickets purchased! See you in May, Portland!
I just listened through the new album Tides of a Teardrop by Mandolin Orange and it’s beautiful.
UK friends! I’ll be speaking at the 7 March London Clojurians meetup at Funding Circle! My talk Growing a Clojure CLI Tool will be a case study in building and growing a usable CLI tool (one that runs tolerably on the JVM 😅). I hope to see you there!
I finished Kim Stanley Robinson’s new novel Red Moon last night. I thoroughly enjoyed it! As seems to be usual for his works, it’s a great mix of characters, ideas, and plot that combine into a compelling and thought-provoking experience. Similarly to his excellent New York 2140 it manages to remain entertaining while conveying his vibrant geopolitical ideas.
I just published an update to the website for the software architecture diagramming framework I’m working on, featuring an improved definition:
FC4 is a Docs as Code framework that enables software creators to author, publish, and maintain software architecture diagrams more effectively, efficiently, and collaboratively over time.
It’s quite a mouthful, I know, but I’m feeling good about it. It feels clear, comprehensive, and usefully specific.
Any and all feedback, suggestions, questions, etc would be welcome!
I’ve borrowed this Fiat 500E #bev for an extended test drive (fun!) and I think it might be shorter than my Mini Cooper (it’s certainly got much better visibility) so it seems I was able to park between two spaces!
This shitty throughput via my Verizon Wireless service is hampering my ability to work at my local library. 😡
I just upgraded to a (used) 10.5” iPad Pro (2017) and wow, it knocks the socks off my prior tablet, a 2018 iPad (plain old). Everything is faster, smoother, better looking, better sounding — in fact the speakers are drastically better. Feeling pleasantly surprised + fortunate 😊!
Just submitted my talk proposal for Write the Docs Portland 2019! 😅
The Cube is a coworking space for parents, with on-site child care — what a great idea!
I just finished the main story of Insomniac’s fantastic 2018 Spider-Man PS4 game and the scripted ending was gut-wrenching — in a good way. This game felt like a lovingly crafted homage to the Spider-Man comics, and an earnest attempt to capture the magic of those comics. ★★★★
This just arrived! So excited!
New shell script to tell me when long-running processes are done — tmwd, short for “tell me when done”
brew install terminal-notifier echo "terminal-notifier -message 'Done"'!'"'" > ~/bin/tmwd chmod +x ~/bin/tmwd
I use it like so:
