Architecturally, the most interesting web app I see these days is @davewiner
's Fargo.io; A blog app that worked this way would be great.
Bunch of folks mentioned Ghost; it looks like interesting software (I backed it) but it's still early. Is there an Octopress service?
I really like all of those blogging services (and love Medium as a sort of YouTube-for-longform, too) but I really miss blogging *software*.
The shutdown of Posterous, exit for Tumblr & financial maturity of Automattic make it clear that blogging is really due for some innovation.
Feel like if you've *never* used crack, it's easy to say so. Sort of like "I've never smoked crack in my life" vs. "I do not use crack".
Yeah, it's a fart app — but with flat design. We're backed by The Flat Fund.
NRA moves to criminalize 3-D printing of trigger locks.
I grew up surrounded by people mispronouncing "asterisk", "Wednesday", "library" & "et cetera". But somehow we all still survived. #blessed
Is there a good raised-eyebrow emoticon?
Three times this week, an app has popped up @aaronsw
's name. Don't know if I am sad or glad for most software being soulless.

Obamacare opponents will hate realizing it's a state-by-state solution that spurs market competition & lowers costs: 2.dashes.com/12B4nkl
Great piece about the prehistory of the word "tumblelog", and the people who built them before Tumblr: 2.dashes.com/12B3XdP
Destro wasn't even plausible enough to make it to the GI Joe sequel, and Republicans think he's working for Obama on a Weather Dominator?
I love Janet Jackson, but I don't understand what her current PR campaign is about? Just image rehab? Why not wait for an album or single?
Horrified by the idea of women being jailed for miscarriages & stillbirths? Follow @NAPW

I'm going to launch an easily-provisioned fleet of programmable drones and call it my cloud offering.
has helped us discover the best possible rebranding of two-factor authentication:
Anybody made a site with links & docs for enabling two-factor auth on all the big services? (We also need a better name for the standard.)
A few folks remind me that the common two-factor auth systems (Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Dropbox) use a standard: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time-base…
Every app that enables two-factor auth should support adding codes in Google's auth app. I love adding services: pic.twitter.com/hy592amBsN
Maybe a few of the news trucks parked out front of Anthony Weiner's apartment could go park over by where Mark Carson was shot, instead.
Shout out to @jkottke
currently features the ultra-rare Sasha-and-Tobias combo that's the hallmark of great blogs.
All of Park Ave South is lined with remote TV trucks & photogs waiting for Anthony Weiner. There is no joke left to make, abandon hope.

Oh snap! It's the return of The Man ⬆ The Legend ⬇ shirt dude! /cc @brittneyg 💍💘
That's the Capitol dome back there. #jackshot
DC looks like a ghost town early in the morning, shrouded in fog and empty of people.
Spotted in the wild: unironic wearing of The Man ⬆ The Legend ⬇ shirt!
Ammunition for the neighborhood school's field day.
Not a day goes by where I don't reference lessons learned from watching @mkapor @DanB @BillGates @davewiner
, et al invent personal software.
announces the end of Lotus 1-2-3 after 30 years of honorable service. Thanks @mkapor
for its brilliant run! 2.dashes.com/10QamFf
Yo, this young guy is rocking a Jheri curl for real (Stoney Jackson not Michael Jackson), and it's giving me the strength to live my life.
To be fair, presenting is hard, and at least Google doesn't embarrass itself like Blackberry or Samsung or whoever did that CES keynote.
Next year at IO, they should let me improvise a presentation simultaneous to their real one, and if mine is better, I get to run Google.
Feel like Gawker's gone soft in the ten minutes since Nick Denton announced his engagement. Used to have so much more edge & wit.
Congrats to @nicknotned
on getting engaged! A Nick Denton wedding is our Will & Kate. 2.dashes.com/10q0vEq
Love the idea of a guy thinking "I dunno how to interact w/ women in a professional context - let me read Hacker News!" #NowYouHave2Problems
I am so confounded by what's going on over at Forbes. Saw someone 1x say it's like they left the key in the door to let anyone in
An example: Forbes is, increasingly, a site full of pure crap. But a few good people still contribute, so I hate to point it out overall.
Anyway, as I hope is clear, this is where I share my bad ideas. They're just not labeled, so I can retroactively claim I did it ironically.
The issue is, we all have bad ideas sometimes. And if your social network's sufficiently big, that means you'll encounter them constantly.
(To be clear, if friends make something bad, I do tell them. I just have to be nice about it instead of tweeting snark, which is less fun.)
I hate looking at the About page on stupid sites/apps because I often find someone I know & then I'm too nice to tweet "THIS THING SUCKS".
Imagine a world in which teens had the option not to drive. How many lives would be saved? theatlanticcities.com/commute/2013/0…
"We started to joke that we could tell [Google] AdWords ‘We want to kill baby seals,’ & they’d tell us how to do it." 2.dashes.com/181phwQ
No, no... I can call it @playdots
or just "Dots", but if you do it, it's racist. Just accept it and move on.
Can tell he's my son because when he doesn't know the answer to a question he exclaims "Yeah!" Someday my boysplainer will be a mansplainer!
Anybody else see a bug in iOS 6 where sometimes list views get shifted to a different font? Not sure if its typeface or weight changing.
