On a rare child-free weekend, we’ve been to see both Deadpool 2 and the Dusty Springfield musical “Son of a Preacher Man”. My initial impressions? SoaPM feels severely lacking in blood and dismemberment.


Playhouse

My daughter’s birthday present. If I lived in London I could probably charge a grand a month rent on this thing.



I’ve had 3 people this week tell me that their phones/ PCs have been doing things they don’t expect (ranging from randomly playing sounds, right up to popup ads every 20 mins) for up to 6 months. How does anyone live like that?!?




Two weeks ago I started a simple Jekyll blog as an experiment. Then I fell down the rabbit hole of indieweb.org and have no idea what to work on next: Micropub? Webmentions? Microformats? It’s all very exciting!


→ The Next Chapter (PocketCasts)

That’s why when a combined group comprised of WNYC, NPR, WBEZ and This American Life approached us with the goal of partnering for the good of the entire podcast industry, we knew that this opportunity was something else entirely.

I’m not sure how to feel about this. I used PocketCasts for years when I was an Android user. Mostly because it was the only good podcast app on the platform.

The podcast industry seems to be doing just fine at the moment, I don’t see what this mega coalition can really do for its benefit?

Still, Rusty seems to be a pretty down to earth sort of guy, hopefully he can keep the app on the right path.


The problem with blogging is that everything I want to say has already been said more eloquently by someone else. Including this.
