• “I’m a downhill skier. I get to the bottom. Once I’ve gotten to the end I do a lot of rewriting. I start rewriting from the front while I’m still writing at the back, just to remind myself what I’ve written.” – Margaret Atwood on writing

  • How to read on the web in 2018. mashable.com/2017/12/2…

  • Republished my thought On Product Engineering to Medium; it’ll be interesting to see how response differs from when I posted to my personal blog.

  • Just read the news of Dean Allen’s passing. I remember what a revelation Textpattern was in what feels like another lifetime.

  • Picked up John Green’s 📚 “Turtles All the Way Down” two days ago; stayed up an extra hour last night reading. This is why I love YA novels.

  • Decided to disable Twitter cross-posting for a while. Even though I’m a very light user, I found myself thinking about followers there when I had the impulse to post to micro.blog. It might be better if I could let go of that, but posting is better than not posting for me.

  • Finished sewing my Merchant & Mills Foreman last night in denim; love the soft boxy shape.

  • Really interesting to see how people are using #Rust macros for code generation. Latest example: GraphQL Schemas

  • TIL that if you’re trying to use #rust and #webassembly together, you [seemingly] can’t pass parameters if you don’t build with --release.

  • It’d be great if the iOS micro.blog app paged in more timeline posts as you scroll, @manton.

  • Heading to Las Vegas for a long weekend with family.

  • I’ve had my reMarkable table for about 24 hours now; hardware is great, software is close, best GPL compliance I’ve seen. remarkable.com

  • Listening to “The Art of Destroying Software”. maximilianhoffmann.com/talks/pro…

  • Resurrected some Python + Unicode training material I put together 5 years ago. A little scary that it’s still mostly relevant. static.yergler.net/bytes-cha…

  • Anohni’s “Hopelessness” is the album I have on repeat these days. It keeps feeling more timely.

  • 🌯👶🏻

  • In 24 hours I’ll be an uncle again. Woah.

  • Really enjoying Procreate 4. Huge, free upgrade.

  • Finally got around to writing about how we did Product Engineering at Remind: www.yergler.net/2017/09/1…

  • Saw Patti Cake$ over the weekend. Fun mashup of film formulas, enjoyable despite any predictability.
