Who is the tone deaf person that added (New!) for some of these headings in this Twitter Calendar of Safety Work? https://blog.twitter.com/official/en_us/topics/company/2017/safetycalendar.html
I sometimes forget what this is all about. The site title and many posts would ostensibly indicate that this was a blog about social media. Indeed that’s exactly what it was for a number of years. But times and sensibilities have changed, opinions evolved. I moved on. Despite knowing this, and ...
I can related. I’m at the point I want to create satellite sites for my tech & food interests so I don’t worry about mixing personal and those subjects others would find interesting but could care less about my personal notes.
Hoping Florida Project comes to @tampatheatre. Seems like a no-brainer.
I’m always on the lookout for a great desktop mail client, keeping an eye on @MailspringApp – need to figure out how to customize swipe
There were a lot of bad things about the restaurant business I do not miss, but seeing the work that Chef Andrés is doing with the hundreds of professional and home cooks in Puerto Rico is heart warming if such a thing can exist in a tragic situation.
The response from Washington has been pathetic. I’m happy to say both my Senators have been vocal about the continued need for more federal response. The fact that less than 20% of the island is still without power is criminal.
The thought of doing a gofundme for a flight to PR has crossed my mind more than once, and I may look at the options if things don’t break my way this week. Plenty of people want to do something, but can see on the news getting supplies and money isn’t the real problem. Sponsoring someone to be on the ground might be a way to help. We’ll see.

“How we were able to go from 100 meals to a million meals,” he added. The secret, Andrés noted, was the chef community, the many volunteers who picked up a knife and got to it. A chef’s disposition, Andrés said, is to know how to adapt to crisis.
“We are survivors,” he said. “We never wanted to be here for so long . . . But circumstances invited us to be part of it.”
Then Andrés remembered a favorite quote from literature, taken from a John Steinbeck novel: “Where there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, I will be there,” he said.
It’s time for a change on my site. I’ve been working on a fork of the WordPress Twenty-Sixteen theme that is customized for the plugins I use. This theme is going to continue to develop and be customized, but it is now, at the least, nice enough for me to use it. What do you think so far?
Okay I am completely lost on what I need to do to make my domain work with IndieWeb. I added some rel=”me” stuff but from there I have no idea what to do. It doesn’t seem as simple as I thought it would be. Anyone who can help please get at me!
Have you looked at https://indiewebify.me yet? It’s a pretty good overview for the basics of getting started.
Making progress with fed.brid.gy so can we find this post in Mastodon?
