"""Castro 2 is designed to help you track a broader range of shows and pick out the episodes that appeal to you. To do this, we introduce a concept that is new to podcast apps: episode triage."""

I'm giving this a chance even though I find inbox-based models for content lead to stress. I like their mechanism for importing subscriptions from Castro 1 but the big idea is emphasising individual episodes and their URLs.

This has long been a unique strength of Huffduffer. If they can build an interest graph that's more vibrant than Huffduffer's collectives (here's mine as an example: https://huffduffer.com/adewale/collective ) then they could start to drive significant amounts of traffic to individual episodes of the more obscure podcasts.

I stumbled across this presentation whilst looking for something else.

It's educational. It taught me that ebook readers are seriously under-powered. They typically have a single core and 512MB which is why so many of the common habits people have for using web technologies to lay out eBooks result in janky experiences.

Browser support; Design; Bugs and edge cases; Performance; User eXperience. They can make an impact. jQuery. Just use jQuery. Stack Overflow. You might not need jQuery. The Modern Web (youmightnotneedjquery.com). Javascript improved because jQuery proved there was a better way to do it.

I'm currently finishing up my blog post about Progressive Web Sites and preparing a presentation about AMP during the week but then I saw an article on the web that I felt was inaccurate and I couldn't resist making suggestions: http://blog.oshineye.com/2017/05/pwas-are-websites.html

Scrubbing Veterans' Headstones Clean, Uncovering Heroes (NPR)

I wish +Android would change their tactic for big screens and make a spec to have TVs be Android TV compatible instead of having Android TV built-in.

The experience on my 2015 +Sony Android TV is horrendous, because it's critically under spec'ed and I expect that it'll have no more OS upgrades, while my +NVIDIA Shield TV is the best money I ever spent on a set top box since I bought a chipped Xbox in 2003.

Some sort of connector (like USB-C), in addition to HDMI, between set top box and TV and a proper API (for the tuner, color settings etc), could make the box the de facto UI for the TV, thus making both infinitely more usable and individually upgradable.

It's the same basic concept as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, only with your TV set.

Rainy memorial day, but the gardens like it 😀

Memorial Day

"Let us, then, at the time appointed, gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime; let us raise above them the dear old flag they saved from dishonor; let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the Nation's gratitude,--the soldier's and sailor's widow and orphan."

By command of Major General John A Logan, May 1868

We've finished cleaning up our greenhouse.

All the "wild" tomato plants have been moved to the vegetable patch because they tend to turn the green house into a jungle and get much better fruits outside. Instead we planted some eggplant, bell pepper, broccoli and cabbage, as well as some cucumbers and melons, and spread out the ground cherries and melothria, that have appeared by themselves from last years seed.

Also installed the watering system now that there was some room for it.

Anyone have experience with hdmi matrix switches? Thinking about getting this one and want to know how decent it is...there's not many options on amazon. I want a 4k monitor, but at the same time don't want my setup to look awkward. Right now I have a 24" monitor on the left and 2 x 23" monitors on the mid and right...thinking about getting/putting a 4K monitor on the middle (eventually before or after when Destiny 2 comes out) and then allowing it to switch between work/gaming because having my computer systems displayed between left and right would feel weird, but that's how it would work if I want the setup how I want....
