Had a great night celebrating Halloween at our neighbor’s cul-de-sac party. Both kids were there too which is rare for adult children!

I came across this aggregate of all 100-books-to-read-before-you-die lists. I’ve always wanted to read more so why wait? Starting tonight, I’ll be reading the first on the list: “The Great Gatsby”. I read it once in high school so it will be fun to read again.

I’m attempting to move my domain to Netlify so that I can automate deployments. Since my blog is based on Hugo, every time I post it’s a manual deployment. Now it should be commit post to Github > Auto Publish.

It’s been over a week now, but I went to Release Notes conference in Chicago. It was great to meet some people I had only met online; and meet some new people. The conference had great sessions, great moments to talk, and some great food! I think I’ll be going again if it happens next year!

I’m always interested in and on the lookout for a great todo app. This week Things 3 was released and it is an amazing set of apps—from the UI to the simplicity to the little bounce when you shrink the window. I predict an Apple Design Award in it’s future.

I like @manton’s (and others?) idea of having a microcast. I really want to like it but feel weird listening to someone’s 1-way thoughts. I’ve been thinking about getting back into podcasting and want to try it. What do you all think of microcasting?

I signed up for YouTube Red a few months ago because I was really frustrated with ads during videos. Now whenever I go to another site and see a video ad, I feel like something is broken. Business Idea: A monthly payment to remove yourself from ALL ads on the internet.

One of the goals of relaunching CocoaHeads.tv was to make it easy for other organizers to contribute. Last week @zorn from Philadelphia CocoaHeads posted 3 new videos and they are great.

To all you new micro-bloggers, if you are looking to host your micro-blog and want to use hugo, I’ve built a theme that supports it. Check it out here: https://github.com/jnjosh/internet-weblog.

These microposts are now also available on micro.blog/jnjosh. I haven’t quite figured out how I’ll publish to this remotely yet but I’m thinking about moving back to an automated build.
