Very sad to read Daring Fireball on Dean Allen's death. https://daringfireball.net/2018/01/dean_allen No matter what Textdrive became in the end, it was a super place to be in the beginning and Textile was an inspiration to lots of lesser folks.

Still puzzled by why some photo posts in Known go through to micro.blog with an image and others don’t. Almost all are PESOS from Instagram. I thought I had an explanation, but it doesn’t hold up.

Read it and weep (tears of joy). Bonnie Ohara of Alchemy Bread tells some of the story of her home-baking operation and how she has helped to create and nourish her local community. http://www.alchemybread.com/blog/2018/1/8/a60p0pdh15xudsrj7wu0qar0s8ix82

For all the joy of the , and the pleasure of civil discourse, I am becoming incredibly confused by aspects of micro.blog. There’s the question of titleless posts, of which is this is one as an experiment, versus status updates. There are posts that appear to be contributions to an interesting conversation but aren’t because they have been cross-posted automatically from elsewhere. And there is the lack of a scroll back, which means that as I follow more people and choose not to check in the middle of my night, stuff vanishes irretrievably from my timeline.

There are also issues with Known that are nothing to do with micro.blog.

None of this is insurmountable. For me, though, it does add friction.

Drawing a perfectly straight line from The Crown s02e05 (Lord Altrincham) to It’s A Royal Knockout and beyond.

I’m not sure I want links to open in micro.app. There doesn't seem to be a setting to change that behaviour.

Hey @jack: the link to caption all of my photos at [Why My Photos Remain on My Hard Drive](https://www.baty.net/2017/why-my-photos-remain-on-my-hard-drive/) is broken. Probably because it may be relative. Just chasing up on @bsag's recommendations.

Mozart in the Jungle (Amazon Prime) is really rather fun, based on the one episode we have watched.

In so many respects, marijuana is a mirror of food, as noted at the mothership https://www.jeremycherfas.net/blog/marijuana-goes-mainstream

A late contender for the best thing about I have read all year. Michael Lewis's feature Made in the U.S.D.A. goes inside Trump’s cruel campaign against the U.S.D.A.’s scientists https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/11/usda-food-stamps-school-lunch-trump-administration
