I hold Bandcamp in particular in really high esteem, I love almost everything they do with their platform.

Their app is great, they have some of the best regular music writing on the internet, Bandcamp weekly is probably the best weekly music show out there, and the model of "Stream until you OUGHT to buy" is 👌

Current mood: hacking on Tasksapp and listening to Buddy Rich.

Last day at my current work tomorrow. Company today announced they are being bought out by BP. Looks like I'm escaping just in time!

Have been experimenting more with TDD for the last couple of weeks. Has taken a little while to really grok it, but I'm really liking it now and enjoying the way it makes me focus in on what I'm doing. Thinking about what I *really* want my code to accomplish seems a lot easier.

Have you guys tried TasksApp by @nigeldgreen

It's a Task Manager/To Do online app that works really well, is clean and clear, mainly uses a single-screen, easy to use and fast.

No fuss Task Management. Using it for Libreture work.

I can't even begin to say how much I love the sheer cross-conceptual nerdery of this.

Inside of every giant, growth-hacked company is a tiny, sustainable company that was utterly destroyed in the name of earning capitalists more money.

@inmysocks Keep the pw file out of reach (e.g., no group or world read perms). Use password salt (protect against pre-computing). Use a pw library that makes brute force attacks expensive (scrypt, bcrypt, PBKDF2).

I think I'm about one more gnome-shell crash away from madness. I love the desktop, but I'm finding it very laggy and prone to hanging recently.

Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.

A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."

People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.

Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.
