  1. Happy New Year from UTC-8!It's past 1am here in #Vancouver, because I decided to sit down and flip the switch for my main site to now be powered by #LogSeq Published to #IPFS and served up via the @fission gateway2750 "pages" from ~20 years of ...
  2. Round two of #ChefsPlate trial. Here’s the Caribbean-style Beef & Veggie Rice Bowl. I’m picking up a few useful tricks for quick meals. I’m going to investigate some standard spice blends to have on hand, and quick aioli from mayo, minced garlic & a little water

  3. You can find a list of 382 public #LogSeq graphs by looking at GitHub repos that depend on the logseq-publish GitHub Action
  4. I’ve totally seen this in Stellaris. Guaranteed there’s a space leviathan breeding ground in there
  5. Also a good excuse for me to link to the Wait Equation. We can “see” 600M light years, what might it take to travel there
  6. After getting Chefs Plate, I recreated an entire meal: the Herby Panko-Crusted Chicken. The trick is dredging the chicken in mayo instead of an egg or batter.

  7. This is a great thread by @piamancini, CEO of @opencollect They’ve helped raise $88M since 2016, and $43M in the last year alone. People pooling funds to make good stuff happen. It’s working! Open source and mutual aid as the top two categories. @piamancini/1606315241343619073
  8. I really enjoyed this call. I’m getting more ranty about how we have to work on a DWeb edge stack ahead of anything else. Thanks @cosmos_voice for having me! @cosmos_voice/1605977763151638528
  9. I am very excited about the @causalislands conference that we at @FISSIONcodes are hosting next April in Toronto. It’s about the future of computing. And we’d love to hear from you about proposing a presentation. Paid speaker travel and small honorarium. @causalislands/1605926142350966785
  10. I went out and took some pictures before shovelling. 30-40cm for sure!Some legend shovelled the entire sidewalk of the whole block, so I just did the rest of the building’s front cement walkway. #VancouverSnow

  11. A picture out the window here in #EastVanIt snowed a LOT last night, and it’s still snowing. Definitely a #Vancouver shutdown day - airport shutdown, ferries cancelled. #VancouverSnow

  12. I figured out today that #LogSeq on iOS, because it’s just Markdown files, gets automatically indexed and included in search. So, a search for “cloud” will bring up notes that have cloud in them. Neat!

  13. Does anyone know how to get to the source photo from the #iOS “Photo Shuffle”?I have mine set to rotate hourly and it’s great to see them, but then I’d like to perhaps post that photo or remember where / when it was by going to it in my photo library. ...
  14. Sometimes working on my notes is exactly like using a fidget spinner. It occupies my mind and typing fingers, but there is no outcome or forward momentum.
  15. Content warning: Food: Herby Panko-Crusted Chicken Tonight’s dinner was a trial run of #ChefsPlate, a meal kit service that I’m doing a trial run of.Full write up on the blog https://blog.bmannconsulti ...

  2. In case you're wondering, yes, this is how I feel: if you're building on a shared system like a public blockchain, built on open source code, you need to be involved and contributing. It's not a service provider relationship. Thanks @pyskell for these photos from #etcsummit

  3. Did you know that the upcoming “Sign in with Apple” is basically OpenID? The foundation is trying to get Apple to acknowledge this & be fully spec compatible. @timbray/1144842794743152642
  4. I've written up my understanding of the "layers" of Ethereum governance -- open source collaboration, protocol standardization, core dev coordination, network governance, and nodes running software. Network governance is the undefined layer.
  5. YCombinator is doing interviews in #Vancouver because of applicant worries about entering the US
  6. People’s first experience with your cool new site is likely to be on their mobile device while on transit. Don’t launch w/out a mobile view
