…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…
WordPress/Pinboarders: here you are. Went with the simple “sync-pinboard” name for now. This plugin pulls your pins into a WordPress post type. No display of those pins yet, but you can start archiving/hoarding!
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.
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? 🤔
– 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
Beautiful afternoon at Lydiard Park. Check out the girl with her pedals!!! 👍
I can’t remember who sent me this a while back, but the Eurovision Tech/AV team’s blog is full of all the insane detail of what they do to make the Eurovision party happen. 39 days to go. Geek out at: https://m-m-pr.com/index.php/eurovision-diary-2019
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!
Listening to this on the topic of modern work. It’s brilliant.

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.
