Weblog/journal/rss/feed related content, pages, tools. Thok Blogs will generally be announced here later.
- Trackforward - outbound postings - firstname.lastname@example.org
- RSS for Trackforward - outbound postings - email@example.com
- My Flickr gallery
- My secondary
picasaweb (google) gallery
where I store bulk "all the shots from this
event" things, so as not to clutter my "photostream" on flickr.
(Hint: flickr, you need a feature like this :-)
- My original "photomoblog" from 2003-2005,
Burn Before Reading (yes, it predates the
book of the same title) based on taking pictures with a PDA with a
wifi card and an email client, and turning them into an index and an
Linked-in Profile which serves as an excellent zero-maintenance
substitute for a resume - especially since most of the work came
though personal contacts in the first place, not blind resume sending
StackOverflow Careers 2.0 is clearly trying to be "LinkedIn 2.0"
and has direct connections with "stuff the cool kids use"
like Github and Google Code.
New Technical Aggregation
(direct rss feed) based on my
README-blog tool; there's an additional
(also with direct rss feed)
which focusses on python-language projects. Individual
which is carrying much of my technical content, pending
improvement of my local blog tools
- My former Blogspot blog is now
just another THOK.ORG blog section
after I concluded that other people's tools were interesting but not for me, and that
self-hosted MarkDown was
the way, the truth, and the light :-)
GitHub in order to do
lazy sharing of a project or two, without figuring out how to
publish directly from here. (Turns out I already have
account, too, but without features like "fork this", gitorious doesn't get
nearly as much interesting activity.)
Codes Well With Others
serves both as a place to rant about development style and as
a tool to encourage me to more actively use many of the
toolkits I spend so much time reading about... (formerly on tumblr)
No, Mr. Bond,
I expect you to fund my kickstarter was inspired by a
couple of friends sharing pointers to interesting kickstarter
projects, though it's a broader gadget blog vaguely related to
my old "gadget lust" feed... (formerly on tumblr)
itself has been a fine source of cutting-edge gadgets over the last year...
Overflow started turning up in enough google hits that I
signed up, and answered a few obscure X11 and Python
- Random Badges
Reddit comments which are also in the trackforward feed above
doesn't have anything that isn't on this page, it just glues it
Google Profile which is almost as circular as FriendFeed is
which only has a couple of shelves so far, but should soon
become my main reference, with ISBNs mirrored to Google "My
Library" for search. Note: lack of a live-entry API means
this never got much further.
which I bootstrapped with a 2012 LibraryThing export and the most
recent ASINs from my kindle backups, so it's still sparse but
not bad for recent stuff and "live" recommendations.
Google Scholar profile; most of it is "With Microscope and
Tweezers", a little bit of Zephyr work, and a pile of
Arepa-derived patents related to "software on demand", back
when cable internet was a cool new thing.
since everyone else at a recent reunion was already there...
my former MIT blog -
low traffic because it's a weak implementation
(in terms of features, not just because it uses ASP.NET) and
because a Safari bug gets in the way of posting. (Too bad it
has the good name...) blogs.mit.edu appears to have
Wordpress placeholder so I can authenticate in order to comment on other wordpress blogs.
Playing with Dave Winer's OPML tool, I've got a
temporary OPML blog
set up, mostly with bug reports about the tool
blogs.opml.org is also gone,
though dev.opml.org has
plenty of tech and standards docs.
- My del.icio.us link
- My GigaPan
gigapixel panorama gallery. I still have the 1st-gen hardware,
it's just very tedious to use - and things like the Sony
DSC-HX1 "sweep panorama" mode should be able to outdo it soon.
