Funny how just yesterday I revived my personal blog for pretty much the same reasons Drew McLellan outlines in his post.
Often, I can’t find something I know I tweeted the day before. Conversely, as an example, here’s the post from 2003 when Dave announced the CSS Zen Garden, which took me roughly 30 seconds to find.
I will try to keep this up for a while, post more links and shorter thoughts that need a few more characters than 140.
A decent successor to one of my favorite online games, but doesn’t hold a candle to the original, which was a lot more inspired and lovable. Still, a good game.
Ars Technica has an in-depth comparison of video quality for the newly introduced iTunes 1080p content. I was surprised that iTunes content came so close to Bluray, even though it’s only a fraction of the file size.
I was also surprised Ars had to take photos (!) of their TV in order to be legally able to provide this comparison. What a pain. A pirate would have had a much easier job. And possibly gotten a better result.
I am trying to get this blog to act as my Facebook replacement, since I quit a while back. This is why I introduced Daring Fireball style linked items. Hope you enjoy them. I will provide a permalink to my excerpts via the infinity sign: ∞
Linked posts will be identified by an arrow icon, for the time being. We’ll see if I can come up with something else.
My goal is to create linked posts more frequently, but with only a short comment from my side. I have often found twitter’s 140 characters too limiting and did not want to write multiple tweets on the same topic. Maybe my blog is the right place for this kind of thoughts after all.
