My Life, Right Now
Still living in NYC and still working at Critical Mass. (Side note: we’re hiring; you should come and work with me.)
I’ve been spending a bit of time recently reading up on IndieWeb stuff; I think a lot of the reason that it resonates with me so much is that it reminds my of “the good old days” when people invested a lot of time and effort in building their own stuff for the web, rather than just endlessly scrolling Instagram. Right now I’m trying to work out how I can implement a MicroPub endpoint so that I can post direct from IA Writer… it’s kind of a fun problem-solving exercise that’s helping me (however slowly!) improve my Python skills. Webmentions also sound like a good idea—also possibly less complicated than Micropub—that I need to look into.
Running has fallen off a bit lately… I strained my hamstring training for the NYC Marathon, and have only run once since late September. It’s still pretty tight and sore, so not sure when I’ll be able to get back into it. But it has forced me to reconsider my relationship with running, which is probably not a bad thing. More to come on that.
- We spent a good chunk of the first night of our vacation at the emergency animal hospital after Omelette had some kind of allergic reaction to something which resulted in a really gross-looking, but apparently harmless, inflammation of the white of his eye. Not relaxing at all.
- The living room of our vacation house doesn’t have a TV. I like that.
- Still trying to get back into the habit of drinking more water
