  • No More Hacker News?

    Most site owners are happy to get any type of traffic. I remember having long arguments about why a client shouldn’t care about Stumbleupon traffic because all it did was increase their server load and never brought people that wanted to interact with your site long term.

  • My Favourite Review of the M2 Air

    Unsurprisingly my favourite review of this new computer was written over at Daring Fireball. The M2 Air is not designed for rendering huge amounts of video.

  • What about Lefties Lenovo?

    Okay this laptop does look neat and I love to see innovation but what about left handed people? It’s setup so you can use the stylus on the right side, but that doesn’t work for me and for many others. I don’t see the option listed, but I hope you can order it with the…

  • Smartphones May Decrease Accessibility

    Getting back home to Spain required a Covid form with a QR code. The airline employee at the Newark check-in counter seemed baffled by my not having a smartphone and told me in a conclusive tone that the QR-coded form is required, despite my proof of vaccination.

  • The Color of Law in Real Life – Housing Pricing Racism

    I recently talked about The Color of Law and today someone pointed out the real effects of racial discrimination in housing by sharing the video below in my Discord Channel.
