It's up to ALL of us to listen to this, understand that it happens, and get mad as hell when it does.…
Floodwatch: see yourself as advertisers see you, a new project from @blprnt.…
Sadly wasn't able to maintain two bread yeast cultures over the summer. Tossed my 2yr old local strain tonight. Still have Belgium at least.
Letters that don't auto-complete to women's names in Google Image Search: C-I, L, O-R, U, W, X & Y.
@stephaniehobson I have never read an explanation of how to read this: [ left | center | right | top | bottom | <percentage> | <length> ]

Looks like autumn's really settling in. Gonna cope by eating so many apples this week.
Spam: "Is BitCoin back?" Checks price. No. No it is not.
Spending the day helping choose the best beers in the province.
Had a major 'holy crap, it's happening' moment today. Proud to work for @mobify. Watch us in 2015.
Conflicted by the barrage of Green party fundraising in preparation for next year's election. Worst one ever to split the left.
Advice to myself, 15 years ago: less opinions on how the world should work, more accepting how it does work. Look for ways to improve that.
Talking about hooking up the gas fireplace. So long, summer.
That Bill Murray Twitter account you follow and occasionally retweet? Not actually him. Never has been. Go check, I'll wait.
Also the KitchenAid pasta attachment is pretty much my favourite kitchen toy of the year.
Finally making a @TheFoodLab recipe. The house smells amazing.
Dropbox could really use a 'forget the other ones for now and synch this one file immediately' switch.
Kinda tempted to go Nexus instead of iPhone 6 next month when I upgrade. Except, those icons, still?…
Hastening one's demise, a case study.…
A photo doesn't really do the mountains of Innsbruck any justice. They're at least as high as our…
Innsbruck was seriously charming me right up until the discovery they haven't banned smoke in restaurants here yet.
Traversed the width of Liechtenstein on the train today. Shoulda held my breath.
Why do these German-speaking shops keep asking me to check my shoes when I leave?!
Way to make every other plug in Europe look bad, Switzerland.
That sinking feeling when you're roaming, forget to switch to airplane mode, and notice a refreshed app icon next time you unlock.
First time seeing @grigs' automatic live-tweeting during his talk at @grigs_talks. Good party trick, and a great way of sharing links.
The main flaw I can see in the idea for https for everything is that redirect scripts will render hotel wifi useless.
Wow, I've never been to a Conference that has lit up my Twitter feed as much as @smashingconf. Really engaged crowd here. Awesome.
CSS architecture with @mezzoblue! Lovely surprise for us here at #smashingconf this morning.

And I say 'always' because that's not the first time I've seen that this year. (Both were revived eventually.)
Always scary hearing a commotion, turning around to see someone eyes glazed over, unbreathing, unresponsive, with hours to go in your flight
So it's gonna be one of those types of trips is it.
Sad to miss the final afternoon of #xoxofest, especially after a great morning, but a week in various German-speaking countries awaits.
Overheard lunchtime conversations about urban chicken farming, vegan diets, juicing, and Python. Because Portland.
Really loved @gruber's no compromise expectation for personal excellence, and @rachelbinx's vulnerable take on the lull between success.
So @xoxo day 1. @kevin2kelly confirms personal hero status, and @femfreq is the bravest person I've ever seen.
Pine State Biscuits for breakfast, Lardo for dinner. Doing Portland well, doing waistline horribly wrong.
PSA: look out the window tonight. You may see northern lights.…
Straight off 8hrs in the car to @apexbar for @BoneyardBeer Notorious because it's damn well worth it.
At the XOXO opening party tomorrow night? Come find me. I brought home-brewed treats.
Super happy and honored to announce that @mezzoblue is part of the #btconf family in Düsseldorf in May! Welcome on board, Dave.

It will redefine what people expect from a... product category you probably stopped caring about 10 years ago.
I wouldn't have thought this Apple watch would be that big.
But of course any made of canned year-old gourd with spices shared by pies and lattes are dessert, not beer, and to be avoided at all costs.
The second are the fresh-hopped beers that celebrate the annual crop, and can only be made a single time per year, within hours of harvest.
The first is the traditional malt-forward German lager. Helles or Bock will do in a pinch, but the real prize is the Märzen.
It has come to my attention that many are quite mistaken about the number of acceptable styles of autumnal beers. There are two.
Remapping a local LAN gem repository from /dev/fort in 2011 so I can get Compass working. (HELP I DON'T KNOW WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS.)
