…but! Kinda amazed at how the Oikos “brand” I had 8 years or so ago has stood the test of time. Name is still right. Focus on “Communication, collaboration, community” is still right. Self-appointed title of “Creator, Engineer, Advisor” more relevant than ever. 😃🙌

Gosh. Lots of thoughts in my head today after a day of lots of chatting with people. Directions, values, branding. Definitely a year of change…

Oh right. I take my sarcasm back. This is an accessibility device. It’s actually quite important. Please forgive my lack of context and understanding.

Even so…£50?!

OK. I’m curious. What the heck is this “latest technology and software product from Microsoft” and why does it cost £50?

“Big Red Switch”?! Is this some kind of joke?

Personal thing, but the normalisation of casual swearing amongst otherwise-professional people in public is really starting to bother me. I know you want to bring “yourself”, but really, can it not be held back in a professional context or with a potential family audience? 🤔

It also:
– Uses the official Pinboard API (there’s a settings screen for your API key)
– Obeys the API’s rate limits
– Allows you to choose an author for synced pins
– Syncs updated pins from Pinboard (I think!) but does not remove deleted pins

Weekend/holiday hacking: I’ve further developed my Pinboard Sync WordPress plugin. Anyone interested in having this in the WP repo? It:
– Copies Pinboard pins to a WordPress post type
– Includes tags in a custom taxonomy
– Will run through WP Cron and/or a WP-CLI command

Despite being a super tech geek, I think this is the first trip I’ve made where I trust the tech enough to be pretty much working on digital tickets and cashless. It’s weird. My phone now does EVERYTHING!

Loads of people complaining about April Fools day this year. I actually LIKE April Fools Day. I like spotting them. I like being fooled by them…a bit. I LOVE the creativity. And given the state of the world, I think we need a lot more playfulness and fun.
