Any podcasting friends able to help me understand why my podcast feed isn’t working in @OvercastFM? Episodes appear in Apple Podcasts, Castro, and Pocket Casts, but not in Overcast and its developer does not provide support.

Update: Overcast now appears to be syncing my podcast properly. Not sure what the cause of the issue was, so unfortunately I can’t share any helpful info if you run into a similar problem.

Introducing my partner to my podcast.

I cannot believe I had forgotten that @aedison once made this super cool plasticine model of me. I don’t recall whether I ever saw it in person.

#newtwitter sees the Twitter web interface itself become a kind of platform. Previously, developers took data out of Twitter and into the context of their own applications and services. The new design flips this on its head, bringing rich embedded content into the site from a host of brand-name web properties.
Alex Payne former engineer @twitter, Sept 15, 2010

I remember reading this post when it was first published and recognizing that the end of Twitter as I had come to know it over the prior three years was gone. In its place, an infamous #dickbar.

Most of you don’t know that I deleted my Twitter account. In fact, in 2013 I deleted almost every social media profile I had, save for my email and maybe a few other things.

I came back because despite the #newtwitter reality, people still wanted to live in a silo.

I wrote earlier today that there are some benefits to no longer having like and retweet counts and streaming in third party clients. I recognize that’s not the attitude everyone has about this. I’m hoping what comes out of it is a realization that humans operate more efficiently outside of silos, and that a lot more attention is paid to the idea of an Independent Web. Tools like text editors and RSS feeds may well end up the winners in the end.

Anyone else enjoying the feature reductions in Twitter’s third-party clients? They are starting to feel like they respect my time and attention more now than they did yesterday.

Thought I’d try out my new podcasting setup today while walking down the street. This could be almost too easy.

This is how I recorded this one’s for Roland (@rtanglao)

  1. Created a Workflow based on a previous Workflow I had created for posting to my Jekyll site from my iPhone via Working Copy
  2. Added steps for recording and previewing the audio, encoding it to MP3 and then base64 and storing that as a variable
  3. Pass the base64 string through an x-callback URL that writes the file to my local repository
  4. Come back to Workflow to paste this text into a text field
  5. Store this text as a variable
  6. Pass that variable through to my standard x-callback URL for posting content on this site
  7. Frantically refresh my blog hoping I can spot and fix any bugs before Roland notices
  8. Quickly load the post in Working Copy and edit the incorrect scr in the audio element caused by an errant variable
  9. Come back and try it again when site.baseurl is discovered to not work on my site
  10. Realize it still isn’t playing in Safari, so pull the latest from the repository onto my Macbook Pro and rebuild the site locally to test
  11. Realize that adding a source element inside of the audio element works, but wonder why Roland didn’t seem to have to do this on his post ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  12. Go back into Workflow to update the Workflow to match the new markup

Note to self: ⌘ + ^ + D and ⌘ + ⇧ + D produce very different results when composing an email in Mail.app.

This album by Alex Mason is the first I’ve ever heard that was recorded in my hometown but wasn’t recorded in my friend Simon’s basement.

Just pushed the latest — and potentially last — pre-release of my first Jekyll theme, Hitchens. I haven’t found anyone willing to test it yet, so maybe you’ll be the first? I would love some feedback before I release it for production.

You can view a demo and read the docs right from the theme’s Github repository.

Pushed an update that refreshes the design of my portfolio last night. Working on some new case studies to be added over the coming weeks.

If you’re new to Jekyll (or Git, or development in general) and are interested in contributing to a theme, I have a few good first issues listed in the repository. Great way to dip your feet in and learn!

Last night, I added pagination support to the Hitchens theme. Also made some minor tweaks to the masthead and paragraph leading. If you use Jekyll, I would really appreciate your help testing it out. Thanks!

RubyGems claims that the Hitchens gem has been downloaded 120 times, yet Github’s traffic stats show the repository only has 14 unique visitors and 2 stars. Anyone know why there would be such a large discrepancy?
