In writing some guidelines to how we use JIRA at Highrise, I wrote “It’s more about why we are creating this feature and less about being just a todo list”.

My wife has been learning R and working on RStudio. Today she started a new blog using Hugo and Netlify. There is a plugin called blogdown for RStudio which makes this pretty easy to setup and handles running the R code and attaching any output to the post.

I organize my development directory pretty well between work and side projects. Each of those directories usually has a _playground and _tools directory for testing things or common tools. Today I noticed my _playground directory is >8gb. That's a lot of sand.

That SpaceX launch today was pretty mind-blowing. I hope the future space-archeologists enjoy their discovery of some chunk of metal “Made on Earth by humans”. I think this might be my favorite gif right now though.

Wow, is pretty cool as a front-end to a static blog. It even reads in Hugo and Jekyll site params. All they need is a Micropub endpoint!

I watched Altered Carbon last night on Netflix. It was a pretty good sci fi series with an interesting world and some amazing visuals. I really enjoyed it and might have to read the book. 📺
