Rose Eveleth from Wired has noticed the worrying parallels between Italian Futurism and Silicon Valley culture.

<< Let’s first take a look at the words often used to describe the Italian Futurist movement: invention, modernity, speed, industry, disruption, brash, energetic, combative.

That's what I'm talking about. Edit a file on the server, Cobalt static site generator notices and rebuilds the static content and nginx serves it up. Ideal. No cms bullshit, works from my mobile just like my desktop. Awesome. #IndieWeb

Two new birds today: White-breasted nuthatch at the feeder, and the oft-heard, rarely-seen mourning dove, just chillin’ in a tree.

I feel like not enough people focus on the fact that Germany wants to outlaw hosting Tor servers. A significant amount of Tor is hosted from Germany, but more importantly, if Germany outlaws it, many other countries that so far were afraid to do so will follow suite. All intelligence agencies despise Tor and lobby their governments to shut it down. It's a slippery slope.

Always make sure to document your code, especially if you're bound to get called about it all hours of the night:

I’m like 4 for 4 on upgrading a system and unintentionally breaking PostgreSQL. Charlie Brown and Lucy and the football.

After months of intermittent struggle, I have a Relay app working. I'm excited about this although Relay still seems crazy to me.

I guess I can download GitHub (et al.) repos with the Buffer iOS app buffereditor.com - It's missing something I can put my finger on.
