I’ve neglected the blog in favor of Twitter recently because I’ve been working on a book (update: first draft almost done! ~400 pages!) and it’s been taking all of my non-work time and battling the depression that comes and goes over not actually making anything. So here’s a bunch of links I’ve posted to Twitter lately and a couple links to some longform.org things I’ve read. That’s all you get for now.
