@aaronpk oh man you have all my favourite lego control panels! And a lego you! This is lego me:
Accidentally left pizza dough fermenting+resting whilst watching 2hr movie, wondering whether this will affect stretching/baking behaviour…
A food mailing list closed to anyone under 21? That’s a bit weird, @tastingtable:
Not to mention the requirement of a zip code with no indication of why or how it’s used.
Only we know how we actually think and what we actually believe. Everyone else has to infer it from how we express ourselves. If we find ourself contradicting other people’s interpretations of our expressions it is likely they were ineffective.
Heading off to see DJ Geimskip og Flugvél (amongst others) at Café Rosenberg later. Come along if you’re in town!
Got lightblue+bluez set up on the raspberry pi, successfully paired and connected with Macbook. Not so much success communicating, sockets only worked one way, and the OS X doesn’t seem to be able to connect to services advertised on the pi despite being able to see that they exist. Also got started with USB programming in python with pyusb — is complex, but less so than I expected.
Apparently we, as an industry, are over the whole ninja/rockstar thing and have moved onto “mountaineer” weworkremotely.com/jobs/472
Spent the afternoon updating lightblue to build on Mac OS 10.9, successfully managed to discover+communicate with a bunch of devices around the office! Next up: serving HTTP over Bluetooth.
@jordandykstra explaining about the walrus before last night’s horizontal viola set:
blewharp.com finishing off her cracking harp set with a “wild woman table song” last night:
Made pasta+chicken+tahini+peanut+cucumber+chili thing based loosely on seriouseats.com/recipes/2014/02/cold-sesame-noodle-salad-shredded-chicken-easy-recipe.html, was the tastiest thing I’ve cooked in a while. Now attempting some red bean soup + wholegrain glutinous rice balls for dessert.
Go “applaud“ @teamIdno’s Knight News Challenge submission: newschallenge.org/challenge/2014/submissions/idno-a-collective-storytelling-platform-that-supports-the-diversity-of-the-web — it’s a proven, stable project, used and relied on in the public by it’s creators every day. I’d love to see what @benwerd and @erinjo can do with some funding.
@tommorris wow, the Werkzeug debugger looks fantastic, going to try that out on some django projects today
Some beautiful visualisations of the process of type design: typesupply.com/news/2013/9/the-development-of-balto cc @briansuda
Mocking up what an #indieweb subscription UI could look like:
A personal site optionally has a homepage feed, as well as linking from the homepage to other pages with some rel value. When asked to subscribe to a URL, if a feed reader finds these links, it shows a UI a list of the linked feeds, with “Homepage” (any posts found on the page) automatically selected.
The user can then select/deselect feeds, with the preview updating to reflect what the subscription will look like. The selection dialog could either be a modal which goes away once confirmed, or it could be a collapsable panel in the feed column, which has the nice side effect of putting the preview directly where it will be seen, in context.
Additionally, either the personal site could mark up, or the feed reader detect, special feeds such as personal metrics feeds, and treat those differently.
Woke up, saw bright sun from window — “great, I’ll go rock jumping at Perlan”. Made breakfast (5 mins), hailing on other side of the house. Ate breakfast (5 mins), now snowing. Wrote this note (30 secs), now sunny again. #thisisiceland
Documented a bunch of experimental h-entry properties w/ examples microformats.org/wiki/h-entry, it’s growing more and more expressive yet remaining concise and memorable, down to extensive intense #indieweb selfdogfooding.
