Checking out Mastodon for the first time in around a year, and wow: the interface and options have come a long way. I'm ready to give this place another go into 2019.

I'm moving! After a wonderful 5½ years in San Francisco, I'm going to New York City, around the end of this month.

I'll be doing the Summer 2 batch at Recurse Center, starting July 5. If you're in the city, hit me up! (And please help me find a place.)

Started and finished What Remains Of Edith Finch last night. Outstanding experience, beautifully done.

If you liked it, you may like their previous (and only other) game, The Unfinished Swan. It's much simpler by comparison, but it's beautiful and has some great ideas.

So Chrome Developer tools has a feature where you can throttle the network to test under various network conditions.

I tried loading my Mastodon timeline page under "Regular 2G (300ms, 250kb/s, 50kb/s".

59 requests, 3.6 MB transferred, Finish 3.6 minutes, DOMContentLoad 1.5 minutes, Load 2.0 minutes.
