I always enjoy a touch of schadenfreude -- who doesn't -- and this story makes me feel for the 37 Signals crew. My normal suspicion would be that the big publisher made all their advance back on the first printing, after which they don't actually have much further interest. 10,000 copies of a $27 book and a mid six-figure advance? Yes, that could be it.

I really like @sebsel's idea of push without notifications, as described by @adactio, but I think I would like it even more if there were some way I could _ask_ if there was anything new rather than have to visit the site. Notify myself, if you like.

Once again, thanks to @cn for alerting me to a bug that hits every time I upgrade Grav. I applied the same fix again, so with luck all will be well again.

Not very detailed is exactly what we need.

Terrific 99pi on the role of art and illustration in the dinosaur revolution https://overcast.fm/+DC83Lgo

Trying to remember that weird illustrated book about future evolution.

Quick thank-you to @fiona for posting the link to Mike Hapgood’s The Garden and the Stream: A Technopastoral

So much to read and think about. And to compare with the Zettelkasten approach to tending one's garden.

Tried to Like this post, but neither Quill nor Omnibear seem able to do so. I wonder whether that is because there is a hashtag in the title? This post may help me find out.

Leaving Trieste on a glorious day; blue skies and clear. Pity it wasn’t like this the past couple of days, but all in all it was better than expected and the city is beautiful. People said Why are you going? Because it is there. And I’m glad we did.

I'd be up for an IWC in Italy.
