    Dang, just saw app.net's shutting down? All the more timely.

      Love the idea of a non-commercial, decentralized alternative to twitter that these guys are going for. Holds a lot of the same promise app.net did (does?) but (purportedly) not dependent on one company.

          Huh. Are we really coming to an end of the era of multinationals' ascendancy? Intriguing Economist article: http://econ.st/2jiguRz

            Sucker for these silly things: http://t.aking.ca/2hfW8uY (I "belong" in Minas Tirith, though to tell the truth I was hoping for Rivendell)

              What's the word for being prejudiced against people with moustaches?

                Hi, all. Glad to see this place is still happenin'! You haven't all migrated over to an app·net Slack or something, right? I don't think I've been on here since July. Putting that paid membership to good use. 🙌

                  Anyone around tonight that I could privately bounce some questions off re: freelance negotiations / dev/design career move?

                    Enjoying "Halt and Catch Fire" — AMC television show about a 1980's computer startup. Makes me feel like my allnighters could be somehow dramatically significant.

                        Am I doing it wrong, or is he just playing a cruel practical joke in getting us all to inadvertently see wang and up-chuck in our mouths? He *seems* like a nice guy...

                          Well, of the dozen or so videos I tried on #Periscope so far, about half have had either a naked dude or someone re-broadcasting porn. Meanwhile, a friend waxes eloquent about "walking the streets of Madrid", "breakfasting in Beijing" and some-such.

                            Concentrate.app stopped working with Yosemite, and SelfControl.app mucks up Rdio. Found Focus.app and it's better on every level. ★★★★★ http://buff.ly/19eGgB4

                                You guys see that article about the quadriplegic woman piloting a fighter jet with her thoughts? Clickbait-y, yes, but also apparently true.

                                    3D printing documentary on Netflix doesn’t paint Makerbot (or Bre Pettis more specifically I guess) in the best light. Had no idea that was the feeling around the company.

                                      @chriskrycho Problem with Bee is we're primarily using the "sprint" board functionality. If Bee had the kanban/agile board format, it'd be perfect. Loved it for the little while before they started adding me to actual sprints.
