Maintaining an old blog. #weblogpomo2024

Share the things you like, y’all!

Been fixing dead links on my old blog posts. Going through 2008 was rough. Maybe I should have spent that time building a dead-link detection feature in Pika. 🤔

Screen Time Doesn’t Work (For Me)

On a more serious note, all blogs are welcome.

I believe that we are the curators of the web. #weblogpomo2024

Abandoned Tabs

How am I just running into these web toys for the first time today?! Tom’s Toys

I’m sure I’ve read this before, but The Oral History of Prince’s Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show. Some real nuggets in there!

So a majority of the blogs in the world will soon be opted in to acting as training grounds for AI Tools. Not gonna happen at Pika. Pika Blogs Do Not Train AI Tools

I’m so glad that I got two of these Tim Robinson Zip Line guys before they sold out!

Pika Pages have arrived! It’s still a little rough around the edges, but I can now run my personal site on Pika.…

Giving Omnivore a try over Matter. Looks like a solid option with a nice sync-highlights-to-Obsidian feature.

This week’s Pika status, along with some personal-site inspiration: Pika Gliding Along.

Wondering if anyone has this workflow (readflow?)?

Subscribe to site via RSS > Skim feed reader to decide what to/what not to read > Send “want to read” things to a read-later service (like Matter) > Only actually read via the read-later service

i.e. never read things in your feed reader.

For the rest of the month I’m going to try things like Play ( and Matter as a way to consume, adding things that I run into via blogs or conversations. That and the feed reader. Maybe I’ll get rid of some of these tabs as well…

Robin Rendle makes you think, with a perfect line: I am a poem I am not software. Of course Yay.Boo comes to mind as one of many ways to play with that idea. And of course this makes me think a little differently about Pika.

A fascinating review of the new Garth Brooks release.

Call him the James Harden of country music.

I’ve been collecting a linkroll of places I like to visit from time to time to discover new weird wide web sites. (Sorry in advance that this page will probably move to a different URL in the next couple of months.)

After months of work, my friend Rianna has launched her popcorn shop and it’s fantastic! If you love the best snack in the world like me, do yourself a favor and check out Dusted.

I adored Hasan Minhaj’s Homecoming King. That makes this story especially disappointing. Sure, make up stories. But when you include real people, identifiably, and keep “emotional truthing” the lies you told about them?! Come on.

Quite an interesting project: Postmarks single-user bookmarking website.
