Jayson Lusk's reminder that the Economic Research Service is a really important source of data is valuable. His suggestion to follow the ERS's daily "chart of note" is even better.

'Is Ewok having a nice time?': the special hell of a going on a cruise

“Years later I can hear the sizzle of my right retina as the burning ember connected with the delicate, light-sensitive tissue

Not to defend the special hell that is a cruise, but is there not one person in the editorial chain of that piece who actually understands the anatomy of the eyeball?

@dgold if you are in IndieWeb IRC, can you figure out what just happened? Every one left in a hurry. Something about *.net *.split

podTo aims to standardize podcast subscriptions

I want to make listening to or subscribing to a podcast as easy as sending an email. Or easier!

A very worthy goal, I don't doubt it. Sounds a bit like the universal Subscribe button that some people think is needed to get writing going again. 

In any event, I wish them much luck and will be attempting to keep an eye on podTo.

Replied to a post on matigo.ca :

Interesting reading, though I cannot quite see how the various personae might map onto a single micro.blog site. Nevertheless, I look forward to whatever you come up with.

One question. I know 10C offers Notes and Todos and Photos, but I have never seen anything here that would encourage me to use those facilities. My notes are in nvALT and my todos are on paper and my photos are in lot of places, but they're all on my desktop machine. So why would I want to use those facilities here? And are you sure they are worth keeping in your "silo"?

PESOS from the original site.

Gavin Stamp 1948-2017

Gavin belonged to a school of one. Throughout most of his career – which was a vocation conducted on his own terms – it was evident to anyone of the slightest sentience that he was the eminent architectural writer of his generation. During much of that time architectural criticism in Ingerlandlandland was no such thing; it was a matter of giving great forelock to a few big names, it was fawning, anilingual sycophancy, a barely dissembled form of PR.

He also, and this may be a little-known fact, designed letterheads for like-minded colleagues, myself included.

Odd. Encrypt.me seems unable to secure a connection on this free WiFi network at the airport. In which case, what’s the point?
