…dedicate to one single purpose. i struggle a lot with getting distracted and not following through, so having a place i can see everyone else updating their boards is inspirational for me to take the moment to sit down and write a little haiku. i guess i’m a little surprised t…

one really good thing about the size constraint: makes it feel Doable, like microblogging. easier to feel inspired to a haiku than an epic, maybe?

…ryone else in my springfile[*]. it feels pure in a way, to not be able to message or like or comment natively - everyone has their own solutions to links out, to emails or mailing lists or whatever. it feels like going on a little…

this stresses me out a bit. mastodon as one signaling layer, email as another… I do like that there’s no commenting though. it’d make it too conversational and less like little miniatures put on display.

is it? I feel like you could certainly participate with raw markdown styled with Robin’s defaults. hard to know how people who aren’t Like Us would use the form because of course it’s people Like Us who want to

…as a way of archiving my poems. i can see that ryan embedded one of his too ⧉ - hosted on his own server - with a note that it’s much easier to update than the rest of his site. i think that’s super interesting, because to me it’s absolutely the same! i’m not a super technically min…

I’m tossing mine into my jekyll site with a little frame HTML layout… and I can’t say I love that I ended up having to use javascript to shove in a shadow DOM for consistency.

i now want to put “amateur hour 24/7” in my website description

off-topic: you can use SVGs in favicons these days mostly – I do for most of my projects to just make them emoji – and I wonder if animated SVGs display…

… that’s the essence of the web. tools which abstract that process in the name of making it easier only serve to frustrate and obfuscate how something actually works - we end up with something beautiful and complex that we don’t actually understand under the hood, a lot of the time. as someone who has only ver…

Hmm. I think there’s some level of templating that’s very freeing, though. I like that I can just write text and have it Look Like Me, Look Like My Site, without having to copy-paste things. on the other hand, I’d imagine a lot less templating would be more honest for someone less prone to making programming projects out of things.

…unless i really want to see it. i like imagining it could have been there unchanged for decades - or it could have been updated the second before i logged on. that frozen uncertainty is beau…

I wanted to scream one time when content flashed before my eyes and was replaced. I’d missed the old board and could never get it back. that’s stress in a way – like that once a day social media app. I wonder why some people find that more tolerable than do others.

tbh I could try mocking this up with user CSS, it sounds doable

robin’s idea had been 1:(2^0.5) portrait or landscape – still not clear to me whether the board gets to specify which orientation, though maybe that’s made it into the new spec?
