Loads of British road maps (from modern OSM to various types of Ordnance Survey maps released under open data licence, all layered and with point and click function to get lat/long and British Grid Reference (something omitted from so many other online maps).

If you are curious about how the road network developed in Britain this is an excellent resource..

‪You know what kills me? It’s been ~13 years since I last saw this video of this person taking a photo of themselves, everyday, for 6 years. Last week he upped it to 20 youtube.com/watch?v=wAIZ36GI4p

Hi.

If you share a screenshot of text from a gargantuan desktop display or even a laptop, please shrink the window width first.

Hardly anyone can read that full-screen-width text. It appears microscopic because most of your audience is on mobile.

I wrote about how we, F/LOSS lovers, need to drop toxic 'heroes' and need to either reform or move on from organizations that WON'T help v2.jacky.wtf/post/intersection

me: working from home gives me the opportunity to focus on tasks free from the the distractions of a noisy office!

brain:

TROUT

LET IT ALL OUT

THESE ARE THE FISH I CAN DO WITHOUT

I’M TALKING TO YOU

SALMON

me: cool never mind

the most fun part about making websites is that u actually get to use hyperlinks. remember hyperlinks.

Pretty pleased I managed to have this entire conversation with @lsanger on Twitter using only my own website and tools! Never had to visit Twitter or use any Twitter apps! Our #indieweb tools have come a long way! #ownyourdata

“It’s about doing the one little thing you can do, even if it’s useless: planting seeds in the midst of the apocalypse, spitting on a wildfire, bailing out the ocean with a bucket. Individual action is almost always pointless. Hope and strength comes from our bonds with each other, from the actions we take as a community, holding hands in the dark.” festive.ninja/one-atom-of-just

we spent years doing all these weird tricks to have drop shadows in web pages only to get them built-in yet now have this decade of flat design. smdh.

oh oh reminder!

if you're in the #SanFrancisco / #BayArea area on Wed, January 9th, 2019; then you'll be able to see me talk about the #Fediverse and the #IndieWeb and aim to pull people in at wafflejs.com/!

Pull up if you can and let me know :)

Are we doing personal websites again because I never shut mine down so I'm accidentally way ahead on this trend.

RT @alicegoldfuss@twitter.com

Social groups, and therefore the Internet, go through cycles of localization and centralization.

We were localized (personal sites), we centralized (social media), and we are starting to localize again (slack channels, blogs).

occasionally, clicking through yet another half-arsed GDPR-mandated cookie management screen, i find myself thinking "the GDPR has buggered up the web"

then i catch myself.

no, it hasn't. the way companies have opted to respond to the GDPR is what's buggered up the web. they could have been nice and unobtrusive about it, but no, they decided that *every user in the EU* should suffer their protests at not being able to stow thousands of fragments of random shite on a whim all over their vict- sorry, users' computers.

I am told that switching your tumblr to a custom domain will make the Oath interstitial and the image flagging go away. so I made tumblelog.xyz/ to make this easy. Thing is , I don't have any flagged images on my tumblr, so I can't test this theory

A very nice Christmas Homebrew Website Club in London this eve.

Blog posts were written, h-feeds were unmunged, replies were sent, ideas were discussed and mince pies were consumed.

Back in the New Year!
