I used to write many more short posts on this blog pointing to stuff I’d seen and liked on the web, in the spirit of the original weblogs. Now, those “go look at this” posts go onto Twitter instead. But I’ve missed having them here, so I’m going to occasionally pull some of my tweets into blog posts like this one.
My son Max helped by hacking together the code to grab the tweets and HTML-ify them, including un-shortening URLs where possible. He also helpfully pointed out that doing this sort of cross-posting would permanently mark me as a clueless dinosaur who didn’t understand Twitter!
In any case, some of my recent tweets:
¶ How come there aren’t cat cafes around here? http://seaofshoes.typepad.com/sea_of_shoes/2010/05/cat-cafes.html (May 08)
¶ More stuff made purely with CSS: an entire typeface: http://desandro.com/resources/curtis-css-typeface/ (Mar 29)
¶ At last, I can properly categorize my social circles: http://matthewwmason.wordpress.com/2009/09/22/dweeb-dork-geek-or-nerd/ (Mar 27)
