Why is Evernote so slow adding tags to 50 notes? - it takes up to 2 minutes

Show thread

I spent 4.5 re-organizing 27,595 notes in Evernote, def not the nicest experience especially when Evernote still (!) doesn’t feature sub-folders… in 2021 *omg

It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly to keep the channel open.

You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.

You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you.

Keep the channel open.

No artist is pleased.

There is no satisfaction, whatever, at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction of blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.

Martha Graham's advice to fellow dancer Agnes de Mille:

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there's only one of you, in all of time, this expression is unique.

If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and it will be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable it is, or how valuable it is compared with other expressions.

Sales of Better Blocker bring in money every month that contributes to the survival of our tiny two-person not-for-profit but, if Apple goes ahead with these plans, we will happily sacrifice that income as we would no longer want to be in any way associated with Apple Inc., and lend our legitimacy in privacy to its platforms (in the same way we don’t associate with other surveillance capitalists like Google, Facebook, etc.)

Unless Apple backs down on this AND makes a firm commitment to keeping ITS nose out of YOUR device, there’s no way I’ll be recommending everyday folks buy Apple to protect their privacy.

Unless they make this commitment, there will no longer be any difference between Apple & Google. (Apart from the oddly surprising position I might find myself in as I recommend Google Pixel phones running GrapheneOS to some folks.)

You’re fucking up, Apple. You’re fucking up big time.

@naii See librewolf (privacy-hardened Firefox fork, easy to install and use), ungoogled chromium (hard to install), and epiphany (GNOME’s browser; doesn’t perform well enough for everyday use in my experience).

I know you’re probably sick of hearing me say it but once more, with feeling this time: No trillion-dollar company is your friend.

Internet Archive, 25 years old today, wonderful 👏👏👏 here's to 25 more!

Fitness plan for programmers:

every time a build or unit test fails, you have to do 10 push-ups.

You'll become either incredibly good at programming or insanely fit. Maybe both with a bit of perseverance 😅

Waking up to the news of the floods in Germany and Belgium and worried about my friends there. We must take meaningful action to curb climate change. If that means moving beyond capitalism, it’s a small price to pay to safeguard the people we love and the future of our species.

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

In short, we need to dramatically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.

I thoroughly enjoyed the latest Small Is Beautiful #11 livestream (recording)

Thank you @laura + @aral 🙏 🙂

p.s. I noticed on the “View Source” link in the footer of the page is pointing to which is a page that can’t be opened…

Maybe that’s worth checking out.

Jacob Beckerman created a fully browser-based video editor

By browser-based, he means everything happens in the browser, including rendering.

He created Mastershot out of frustration that all the other web-based video editors limited him to either low-resolution exports, or they placed annoying watermarks on the exported video.

So he decided to do something about it 💪

Caveat: “Currently we only support Chrome or Chromium based browsers”

Reading @aral Hell site -

And when I saw the book title “Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products” mentioned there - just this one more time -, I found that there should be a book called:

“Whored: How to Build People-Farming Products”

Please steal this idea, i.e. book title, and make it a valuable book.

A parody to “Hooked” would be equally fine, too.
