Interviewed on Uses This
Oh yeah identi.ca was down so maybe I didn't mention, but I was interviewed on Uses This. Apparently the longest interview ever, and conversations ranging everything from what laptop I use to Guile and Guix to ActivityPub to a startup idea to kill startups and "disrupt" late stage capitalism.
The Power of Wikis, the Problem with Social Networks, and the Promise of A.I. with Evan Prodromou
I did not know Evan got his start documenting how to get Perl working on Windows (forgot version mentioned, I guess NT 4.0 from timeframe?). THANK YOU Evan for all your free culture/software/standards work!
puckipedia / Puck Meerburg is making an ActivityPub server implementation in C# named Kroeg (see the #kroeg channel on freenode). I just made a test post to it. Yay!
How'd I never see this Muppet Show skit of "I'm A Gnu" before?
- You're really making progress on your challenge. Ive enjoyed reading your updates. I just today found time to organize my thoughts around this. At this rate, I might not start until July 1st. Come to think of it, that might not be bad idea. :)

The Social Working Group's timeline has been extended! ActivityPub making it to Rec looks likely now!
"nobody will use your code if it's GPL, make it permissive" is the open source version of "we won't pay you, but you'll get exposure"
Holy shit, it's been ten fucking years since I quit working in the Google datacenters and started working as a web developer. I've been legit a "professional" programmer for a decade.
- Speaking of discipline and daily challenges, how about 3684 consecutive days (and counting) of creating a new image from start to finish?

Removing items from my agenada like a boss.
Actually I'm just removing due dates and tagging with "reschedule" like a wimp.Show all 6 replies
My agenda is more like a switchable list of possible tasks.
I have it divided in two groups of tasks: hard and soft. Any of the tasks can have dates or times (be it schedule, deadline, or simply reference of "good for" that date), but the general rule is to avoid using dates and times.
Hard group is for things that don't repeat daily or that there is a penalty for missing it.
Soft group is for things that repeat daily or that I can make up for the days missed in the next successful completion without prejudice of losing "uniqueness" from the previous misses.
From this list I cycle through items by doing one from each group every 30min, starting from the group of hard tasks. Doing breaks of 5min for each task, and of 15min for each four tasks.
Also, I avoid picking tasks that have an action in common to the one I'm currently doing. For example, if I must write an important message now, then the next task musn't involve writing.
