Prison

Inessential By Anonymous on 13/12/2018 pm31 22:35:00

I’ve said before that my fondest hope is that all these people go to prison, and that they come to regard Trump’s decision to run for president as the worst thing that ever happened to them. It’s not schadenfreude — well, it’s not just that — it’s about justice. It should be known by all, by everyone everywhere, that long-time criminals and fraudsters who feed hate, who betray their nation, will get what they deserve. They’ll get years behind bars and their liberties taken away. They’ll suffer the condemnation of history, and they’ll be known forever as dirt. It should be known by their supporters — whose support is based on a mutual love of cruelty — that these kinds of people are buffoons... Read the article

New Xcoders Site

Inessential By Anonymous on 12/12/2018 am31 02:48:00

The Xcoders group is for Seattle-area and Vancouver, BC folks who make apps — by writing code, testing, supporting, designing, and so on. They even let marketers like me in there. :) I’ve been attending since 2005, but only recently started helping out more formally — I’ve been part of the effort to get our communications working a bit better. We started a new blog at https://xcoders.org/. It’s hosted by Micro.blog, and we want to thank Manton Reece and Jean MacDonald for all their great work on the service. We gave our blog its own domain name, xcoders.org — because that’s how you own your own content on the web. We also set it up to automatically cross-post to Twitter, to our existing @xcoders account. We’ve... Read the article

Almost all the cats and dogs alive during 9/11 are gone now. I hope we remember the comfort they brought. I remember my kitten. Read the article

On Using Stock User Interface Elements on the Mac

Inessential By Anonymous on 06/12/2018 pm31 22:30:00

The genius of the Mac is its consistency. Users brand-new to any well-done Mac app are able to understand how to use it pretty quickly, in part because they see familiar buttons, popup menus, sidebars, toolbars, and so on that they see everywhere. While it’s tempting to put your own stamp on things — as you kind of need to on iOS — on the Mac you can relax and use what Apple has provided. Not least because Apple has already done a better job than you will. Apple’s controls support various accessibility features, and they behave the way Mac users expect. Both of those things are very easy to get wrong, and when you do it wrong the app feels wrong, and people... Read the article

Cheri Baker, Eight months without Facebook: When we allow sites like Facebook to do the heavy lifting in our relationships, it seems to me that turn into cardboard cutouts when we were hanging out in person. I always hated that dynamic, and now it’s over. Read the article

So Basic It’s Not Even Funny

Laura K. Curtis writes about book bloggers and lists a whole bunch you might want to subscribe to: There are fewer book bloggers around now than when I started, but I’d like to encourage people to visit them, especially since you are more apt to find less well-known books by looking at blogs, books you might really enjoy, but might otherwise never find. “Who has time to cruise all these sites?!” I hear you cry. “No one,” I answer. “That’s why there are feed readers.” What delighted me especially was this line: “It’s NetNewsWire for Mac and it’s so basic it’s not even funny.” And I — earnestly — love this, since it describes my design and development aesthetic so perfectly.

I’m on the latest Micro Monday podcast with Jean MacDonald! It was so much fun to do. We talk about podcasting and about the similar ideas behind The Omni Show and Micro Monday. And The Record. We also talk about NetNewsWire and about Micro.blog. Entirely coincidentally — Micro.blog has been open to the public for a year now. Congratulations to Manton and Jean on this big milestone!
