Kraken 4 was released this morning. This is the best version of Kraken yet. Here’s what’s new.
I spent the beginning of this week at
Artifact Providence. Last year, I said that it was the best conference for web professionals that I have ever been to. I stand by that statement.
Jennifer Robbins, Christopher Schmitt, and Ari Stiles have created is something truly magical. Artifact is the best parts of the web—the open, welcoming, collaborative community—without all the snark and nasty bits.
If this year had a core theme, it was that the web of the future is quite different from the web we build for today.
Back in June, I made a decision to
remove comments from this site.
I wasn’t happy about it. I think the web is better with open conversations. But Askimet was letting through an incredible amount of spam, and managing it was taking up time that I could have spent writing posts and making cool stuff.
Over the weekend, I brought comments back and added a new plugin that has stopped comment spam entirely.
I’ve written here before about my
desire to help the homeless, and how that conflicts with my fear and judgement.
Often times I do nothing at all, and just feel guilty about it. Other times, I’ll donate money, which is helpful (at least I hope it is), but it’s also impersonal and a bit dehumanizing.
I came across a few videos over the last few weeks that have given me a new way to think about how I interact (or don’t) with the homeless.
