After discovering it via Colossal a couple of days ago, I have become completely enchanted by Alphaputt, which is a quirky mini-golf game for iOS that is superbly designed. You can find it, of course, on the App Store.
Just a quick post to start the new year.
I made some updates to the bio/about page on this site, removed the twitter link there, as I am not actively posting to Twitter at this point. I am on Mastadon here.
Bending Spoons acquires Evernote, marking the end of an era – I was all in on Evernote, and don’t pay for it any longer. I hope for the product and user base that this next chapter ends up being a productive transition.
It always makes me a little sad when a startup whose work I really liked spirals down.
Hard to believe that this little, under-updated, site is 25 years old today.
It would be hard for me to sift through my feelings about this, the world, and the web are very different places than they were in 1997. What I can do is express some gratitude for are the people and places that this little blog was a doorway to. Meeting the other bloggers at that very first SXSW has led to years and years of inspiration and a career path that I couldn’t have even imagined the day I made that very first post.
I can only hope that I can become a better steward of this site in the coming years, and update it more in what is really starting to look like a post-Twitter world.
This post is mainly a test of some new hosting that was put in place this week to make sure that things are still configured and working correctly. Still WordPress, these updates were mainly due to my hosting provider phasing out some of the gear that I was hosted on. I continue to want to migrate to some kind of static publishing system.
It’s been a very busy year for me, with a lot of work travel. I’m hoping to post more here this Fall as my work schedule gets a bit more manageable.
