Created a section in my personal site for µ-posts. Will feature 🎲 stuff, TILs and small victories against the CPU.
This has somehow evolved in time to the mutant form B, B, B - where the high-level endeavour is gone.
This is a post-modern meta-bio, due to being very self-referential (the noble pursuit is implicit). So we have
- Cooking, cycling, pokemon
- Knitting, legos, k-pop
Linguistics, mathematics, vaporwave
A lot of online bios (I think I did this also, at some point) follow the cliché non sequitur: A, A, B; with A being a high-level endeavour or noble pursuit and B a, seemingly at odds, interest that supposedly provides a comic effect due to implicitly being as important to the person as A. For instance:
- Philosophy, Quantum mechanics, cooking
- Literature, human rights, cycling
- Cancer research, digital freedom, pokemon

Got a security update from http://developer.twitter.com/. Forgot I even used it. Here's my bad experience with it:
I was trying to deploy a generative art bot on birdsite. Opened a dev acc (with a secondary email, since you can't associate a bot with your primary acc) and providing my *personal phone number* was mandatory. I reluctantly complied. Deployed the bot and it was suspended after a single tweet as malicious/spam.
I closed the account, went to botsin.space and started having fun in 5m.
if you are looking for something to watch for the next hour, my colleague Joel and i are about to give a talk about #kubernetes and the cluster-api project. it's free, come join us!
