These last few weeks in Whitehorse, while cold, have been awesome. A challenging project, a great team, and fun extracurricular activities. This is why I’m a freelancer.

I am longtime fan and advocate of Jonathan Snook’s colour contrast checker, but today found myself wanting a similar tool for Sketch. Stark is a Sketch plug-in created by Cat Noone, Michael Fouquet, and Benedikt Lehnert that makes checking the contrast between two layers a breeze. Stark also allows you to simulate various forms of colour blindness, a valuable tool for those who care about designing for accessibility.

All the money ever does is “sits”. It never “moves”. Switching ownership is instant, so “sitting” takes 100% of money’s activity. If your money burns a hole in your pocket, it is not because “money must move”, it is because you have shitty money.

After two days of trying and failing to get one of the many existing styleguide libraries integrated into a React app, I’ve come to the conclusion so many have come to before me: when in doubt, roll your own.

My dear friend, Carly Thomas, has just released an album of acoustic renditions of some of her best songs. I was honoured to be included on the holiday-themed closing track, Hold You (On Christmas Eve).
It’s been a while since I last travelled down the road playing guitar with Carly. Listening to this album brings back some truly wonderful memories of nights spent playing music across this great country.
If you’re into physical media, you can get a CD and some cool artwork by visiting her online store.

Having spent the last 9 months working on accounting and mobile banking software for cooperative micro-financing institutions in Uganda, reading about the challenges the Watsi team faced while working in the same region was extremely relatable. The ease with which they addressed these challenges, however, is completely foreign to me.

I’m still using feed.press to post to Twitter for now, but will be experimenting with Micro.blog’s cross-posting functionality this week.

Spent a couple of hours today tidying up some things on the site. If there’s one thing I’m grateful for this year, it’s my rekindled love of having a blog.

James Shelley on his recommitment to the open web:
The ultimate value of the Internet is that it is an open network. I want to invest my time and grow my understanding in a dataset I can access, transport, query, and utilize in the future. For me, right now, this means using WordPress to amalgamate my personal “online existence” in a MySQL database that I own, instead of relying on Facebook or Twitter — or whatever the “next things” might be — to host my digital life for me on their terms, under their conditions.
If you follow me online, you may have noticed a decline in the quantity of content I’m publishing. Aside from the occasional reply on Twitter or Instagram photo, almost everything I’ve had to say can be found right here on my blog.
Well, anything I’ve had to say publicly, that is. The vast majority of my writing activity has been invested in the work I’m doing with Ensibuuko. Speaking of which, we’re currently on the lookout for Laravel developers. If you or someone you know is available, let me know!
