Remember the days, when bookmark management tools in all possible ways popped out of the ground like mushrooms from well fertilized forest soil?

Time does not only heal wounds.
Many of those hyped bookmark and content curation tools have been extinguished in the meantime.
Some, however, have survived the hype, they are better than ever and continuously surprising with exciting features.

On of those tools in my opinion ist start.me, founded in 2014.

Remember when we used to have vibrant unique discussion boards before Reddit became the ubiquitous discussion board for everything? When was the last time you created an account on a phpBB board?

depression 

depression is hitting hard today. wish i knew why. usually work depresses me, and it's nothing specific about this job. i just don't like working. i don't like feeling trapped. i don't like feeling like i don't have a choice. but not liking it... why does it make me sad? and why don't i figure out what to do about it?

Kinda miss my parasocials on the old birdsite right now. One of the big differences: there were a lot of local people whom I’ve met and hung out with there. Not so here. I don’t think there’s anyone geographically nearby on Mastodon, which *shouldn’t* matter, and yet it kinda does. (btw I’m in Portland, Maine USA).

"Would a depressed person do... this!"
*Proceed to do nothing efficiently*

Reading about the Carrington Event and imagining the apocalypse if that happened because apparently that’s how I spend my Saturday afternoons. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carringt

Les Claypool’s Flying Frog Brigade’s cover of Pink Floyd’s Animals sounds better than the 1977 bootlegs.

Fucking vendors and their fucking SDKs embedding fucking analytics bullshit (and not even declaring it as a fucking transitive dependency) that gets us into fucking trouble with the fucking Google Play Store.

Decided that it’s time for a change. Going forward, I will be using Swatch Internet Time.

I get a little embarrassed every time my Apple Watch praises me for … standing up.

Does Google use what we bookmark in Chrome to weight it’s search results?

Imagine getting stoned out of your mind then looking up and seeing what your wife chose on Netflix and on that show 1) there is a talking chimpanzee and 2) people are taking the chimpanzee seriously. Umbrella Academy I guess?

I feel like Stanger Things’ timeline vis a vis Nintendo Entertainment System availability is slightly off.

The Final Cut has some of the most incredible lyrics in the history of rock music and you cannot change my mind.
