It appears that the WordPress for iOS beta text editor has some character encoding issues. Other than that, I like it.

The iOS 11 Public Beta is the first beta OS I’ve installed from Apple. I did so in part because I want to help improve the OS by providing feedback and analytic data, but also because I wanted to test my aforementioned app that I’m building, and lastly I’ve wanted driving mode since very early […]

9th Ave Pier, Belmar, New Jersey – July 2017

Earlier this month Eliza and I ate dinner at 9th Ave Pier in Belmar, New Jersey. It was an interesting experience. At 9th Ave Pier you find a seat yourself (despite the fact that the place was packed). This could be done by creating your own tables using objects you find around the pier, finding a few seats with other people at unfilled tables, or finding a way to sit at the bar by cozying up next to someone at one of the few bars.

It didn’t make for a bad experience necessarily, but I can imagine how some might be put off by this. And, it may be that this isn’t an issue except during holiday weekends when the place is busier than usual.

Overall it was a beautiful evening and I won’t forget our dinner there.

Diversity recruiting is really only lip service. Work, school, community and conference environments need to be inclusive. Inclusivity in the sealant that prevents many pipeline leaks. Many companies […]

Gardening is a violent act

Harold Jenkins: I’ve long wanted to do a piece on the subject of gardening as violence. Gardening is an extremely violent act. To start a garden you must first kill whatever is already growing in the place you want to garden: cut down trees, tear out vines, rip up or smother sod. Then you break […]

I rewrote some of my app’s UI last night using Swift rather than Storyboards. While it takes me longer (at least currently) to build Views this way – it does seem to be the better way of going about it.
