Years ago, I attended a presentation where the slide deck was presented via a terminal. And attendees could connect to it to follow along. Any idea what took provides features like that these days?

Why do I worry about privacy and tracking? Because services like this exist and will get far more powerful in the months and years to come.

It's on days like today when I hit my step goal before my first cup of coffee that I know I'll be insanely productive...

I have no idea how this ended up in my YouTube feed ... but it's fascinating!

It's still September, right? Why are the Christmas ornaments already out?!?

@chris I think this might merely be a problem with federation. Since replies are on other instances that are polled it takes a while for the feedback to appear.

Started my day by reading the news. That was a mistake.

On the other hand, I'm very awake now.

Have been in a funk since Friday. Anyone got a word of encouragement (or two) they can share?

Sites that make you verify your phone/email before letting you actually do anything are annoying. still waiting for either a text or email to go through ...

Literally all I'm trying to do is schedule a haircut :-(

That feeling when you get a parking ticket in the mail. From a city several hours away that you haven't been to in a decade. For a vehicle with your plate but a different VIN...

On the hottest day of the year, my team planned for a team building activity at an amusement park ~5 miles from the office. My sole means of transportation? Bike.

Weather + distance + overweight = can I nap now?

I see it going a little bit like this:

- Britain: "NO DEAL!", we will keep the £39b settlement!

- EU: Sure, we'll just recoup it by taxing all your exports to the Union. Should take no more than a couple of years.

- Britain: Er...

- EU: It is... How do young people call it these days? Ah yes: "All your exports are belong to us".

- Britain: ...

- Scotland: FREEDOM!

(You read it here first) 😋

If you don't ask, the answer is always "no." But if you do ask, the occasional "yes" is an exciting surprise.

@david s/value/sense of fulfillment/

My issue is that I'm disappointed in myself for not doing what I enjoy or want to be doing in the first place. And I'm not sure how to fix it :(

Every conference. I meet amazing people, learn about amazing ideas and projects, and feel inspired to accomplish so much.

This time, that inspiration coincided with yet another Namecheap prompt to renew domains I purchased 3 years ago for a post conference project I never finished.

When exactly did the post-conference funk devolve into paralyzing developer "I can't seem to ship" depression?!? It seems to happen every single event these days :-(
