I kind of forgot how my website works. Oops.

And if anyone out there actually subscribes to this RSS, just a heads up that I am messing with it and it is about to change to be more conventially formatted…

It has only been two days since I started posting on my site again and also syndicating the posts to various places, and I’m finally ready to admit:

  1. it is in fact a huge pain in the ass to use Hugo as a microblog (at least the way I have mine set up)

It feels like the last days of social media, looting, anarchy, the scattering of peoples and the confounding of languages, so I feel like I can post again with abandon now.

The first “links last week” still isn’t really happening today - I didn’t keep up with it other than the first day of the week, which happened to be the 4th of July.

I guess I could still post the links I did note at the first of the week, because a couple of them are really good, though a bit dependent on the “Independence Day” context. Find them after the jump.

Ugh. Fell into the “Writing the Great American Email” trap at work today. Several times.

Some people like hearing themselves talk, I guess I like reading myself write.

  1. Tried Taqueria Los Lee for lunch today.

  2. This interview with Alok Vaid-Menon was by far the best thing I’ve read/listened to/otherwise taken in this week.
