Rest in peace Dean

Last night I learned about the death of Dean Cameron Allen, of Textism, TextPattern and Textile fame. I retweeted Ethan Marcotte’s message, adding this: “Nooooo!! One of the pillars of my early(ish) web life with his writing and his code and his dogs.” It’s a huge loss. Not directly personal for me, or because of […]

Writing Is The Most Scalable Professional Networking Activity

I found this thread by Andrew Chen super interesting so I thought I’d use it as a test for Darius Kazemi’s little tool, spooler. Works great! (Not sure why some tweets were regrouped in one paragraph and others not though…) I simply pasted from spooler to here and made some small tweaks. — After 10+ […]

A Merlin Rant

I love Merlin, especially with his new focus. Pretty much every post is must read. Free as in ‘Me’ is one of those. You “page” your articles to the point of hostile unreadability. You disguise or bury links to source articles in a way that makes your article seem a little more canonical than the […]

Résidents et visiteurs

J’avais déjà linké à Not ‘Natives’ & ‘Immigrants’ but ‘Visitors’ & ‘Residents’ sans commenter, récemment Martin a approcher ce sujet une nouvelle fois avec Pour en finir avec les natifs versus les immigrants digitaux ou il fait la promotion de cette vision, beaucoup plus appropriée et utilise la métaphore assez fidèle de la ville pour […]

C’est beau ça!

Finally launching one of my procrastination projects today. For the last few months I’ve been blogging photos and illustrations at céboça, I kept delaying the launch, hoping to redesign i.never.nu at the same time, wanting to come up with a new bio, etc., etc. Always something coming in the way or some new way to […]

Becoming an old (blogging) man

It’s tough because I love blogs and I love comments in blogs, but I’m starting to think there’s this “new generation” that has grown up online only knowing blogs as having snarky comment areas and never realizing it used to be a personal, intimate space where you’d never say anything in a comment that you […]

Content Is Becoming a Commodity

What this means for us as bloggers and new media creators is that the very technologies that we have grown to love are the same forces that are turning our efforts, be them our words, our videos, our music, our photos, or anything we create, into a commodity – something that has little monetary value […]

Je ne le linkerai pas parce que parfois il veut garder les choses silencieuses mais tsé là le gars qui prenait ben des belles photos et est déménagé à Tokyo, tsé là? Il re-blog. (woohoo!)

I Am A Media, Not The Media

None of what I’m about to say is new, it’s a trend that has been around for a while but it seems to pick up speed and/or to now be on the shores of my network. Remember the days when blogs were about self expression and we were oh so proud of how anyone could […]

Bunch of Links

Ok, enough with the small posts, here’s one with various things I found while catching up on feeds: Didn’t take all that long for Derek to get back to printing cool stuff. Great choice too, he’s starting up Fray again and will make it a quarterly published book instead of the online magazine. Should be […]

Pourquoi bloguer

Je trouve ça un peu “gimmicky” et j’aime vraiment pas la typo de la couverture mais il y a plusieurs personnes très intéressantes qui y ont écrit des chapitres donc je vais probablement quand même acheter Pourquoi bloguer. Note aux auteurs; c’est un peut têteux de linker direct au site ecommerce au lieu de nous […]

Pile of Links

Not sure if I’m paying more attention or if people are putting out more interesting stuff but I’ve got a lot of open tabs that deserve posting. Since I don’t like posting 8 times a day, here’s a few thrown together. Bloggers Bring in the Big Bucks. Surprising numbers were a few of them. Frickin’ […]
