🔮 Five Predictions for Social Media in 2019

Will the fediverse last? Will Facebook implode? Will our brains all get uploaded to the Matrix? (Just kidding, there’s nothing in here about the Matrix. What do you think this is, 1999?)

@kosh I stayed up another half-hour watching "Forever" on Amazon 🤪

Its 11:45pm and I should probably go to bed now.

Naw… 😏

Got into an amazing state of flow planning the week ahead after a fantastic workout. My brand new iPad Pro setup is certainly another contributing factor. 😁 Happy Sunday everybody!

Jared was sick…but at long last he’s been told he’ll make a full recovery, so enjoy this latest episode of the show: recorded, edited, produced, and published exclusively on iPad Pro! Yes, Jared has a brand-new tablet with Ferrite installed, which means it’s totally possible to record a podcast anywhere, anytime. Also: thoughts on "Zucked" by Roger McNamee, how it could be possible to live as a web developer/creator without using any Apple tools, and a whole lot more.

Just picked up "Zucked", the new book by early Facebook investor Roger McNamee (now a critic) regarding all the ills of Facebook and other surveillance capitalist companies (Google, etc.). This should be good.

@markmcelroy thanks! So far it's been drier and even funnier than the forecast predicted 😆

Last Portland view before the "snowpocalypse" hits 😱 — get ready to see lots of white!

Mastodon is like that thing in pre-school where everyone holds the rainbow colored tarp thing and you throw it up and run inside

@jaredmoody Yeah, the Git sidebar UI isn't so hot. I might poke around and see if any other extensions do a better job of that. On the other hand, Atom on a network share slowed to a crawl doing anything with Git…yet VSCode remains snappy. 😃

Well I'm f'n shocked. After wrestling with Atom bugs and performance issues (on macOS) for such a long time, I finally gave up and looked around for another editor. Tried out Visual Studio Code.

WOW! It's so-o-o-o much faster than Atom with a ton of UX improvements. Feels like Atom in the ways that matter, but definitely improves upon it. It's funny that Atom and VS Code are now both under the MS umbrella…I've heard Atom may fade away because of this.

Anyway, I'm a happy camper. 😃
