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.

Feeling good about the changes at Flickr

1 min read

So interesting to see some of the changes that are happening at Flickr. I'd more or less given up on it as a place to share some of my images, and now I'm beginning to think it is becoming more attractive again. I've been a paying user for a long, long time, without really thinking about it. I'm not too bothered about the "silo" aspects of the site, as I have copies of the images themselves. I suppose I ought to look into grabbing comments, likes and so on, but not with all that much urgency. It's the images that count.

The thing I find most interesting about this most recent blog post is this:

Lastly, we looked at our members and found a clear line between Free and Pro accounts: the overwhelming majority of Pros have more than 1,000 photos on Flickr, and the vast majority of Free members have fewer than 1,000. We believe we’ve landed on a fair and generous place to draw the line.

I'd love to see the raw histogram of number of images and videos per user.

So, that's what an Overton window is. Thanks to Alice Bartlett for prompting me to find out.

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.

Successfully updated WithKnown to latest master with no (apparent) ill effects. Now to see whether it permits things that it previously did not.

Managed to get my demo for IWC done with about 10 minutes to spare. Not unhappy. More quantified nonsense.
