Finally visited the Bonami computer- and consolemuseum in Zwolle today (Netherlands). Had sooooo much fun with my 5 year old son there with both old and new consolegames!

“Blogging, that much-maligned pastime, is gradually but surely disappearing from the Internet, and so, consequently, is a lot of online freedom and fun.”

Well..they sure know how to work the best tricks from blogs how to get attention ;-)

The End of the Awl and the Vanishing of Freedom and Fun from the Internet

A DM only iOS Twitter app. Does that exist? Not the full timeline. No lists. Just DM. #almostindieweb

I have a stopover in Portland to go to Amsterdam. I flew with a brand new airplane from Alaska Air. Beautiful plane but most of all a great little message from the captain when we unboarded: “Be kind to each other”. Small yet powerful message.

I will be at the CES in Las Vegas next week. We will be one of the startups in the Holland Pavilion. Will I meet some Indiewebbers there? I doubt it… Does anyone have good off-the-beaten-track Vegas tips? Maybe some running tracks?

I still need to find some time and place to tweak my own blog with the Instagram posts. Not quite happy with how it syndicates to other channels…

Here’s a first micropost from Drafts 4 with the Micro Blog Action that’s available from the app. Thanks @colinwalker and @agiletortoise

For all here fluent in the Dutch language (all 5 of you? ;-)), a short write up of my incredible adventures to incorporate Instagram on my site. diggingthedigital.com/Instagram…

I am looking for some help with micropub endpoints and OwnYourGram. I use this script on Github to have my own endpoint on my site. But now Instagram posts are posted to my Master branch and not to GH-Pages. Now what?

Pretty happy with my new Panobooks from Studio Neat.

Yesterday I learned about the existence of Oh My ZSH. Besides the coolest name in app history, it’s a incredible interesting framework to use in iTerm2 and learn more about shell, terminal and bash-files. A nice geeky evening it was!

hmmm.. for some reason the feed from my test microblog on Github doesn’t send the description. Just the title. No link as well.

I plan to write a Dutch blogpost on Micro.blog today/tomorrow. It depends on how proactive my daughter will be for herself with the preps for het xmas dinner at school ;-) Anyway, @manton are you available for a quote or perhaps some insights in first growth? Can I mail you?

I am looking for proper explanations or code-examples how to make a facepile of my webmentions. I use Jekyll on GH Pages. Any pointers are welcome!

The word Weblog turns 20 today. Here’s a small part of (Dutch) internethistory written in my weekly digest

Last Jedi. Excellent.

Tonight…

next thing to find out: Can I set the source of my blog to just the site directory of my Jekyll installation and upload that. As in a separate repository or something. Still learning this whole Github thing…

Working at home next to the xmas tree. Too much snow on the road…

This evening I read up on IOTA, a cryptocurrency for IoT devices. I think. I’m not sure what it is anymore since the articles I read are filled with hoopla on The Tangle (some sort of blockchain) and other hyped-up words. Anyone here familiar with IOTA to get me up to speed?
