It's even worse than it appears..
Trolling is transitive. People who RT trolls are themselves trolls.#
Remember the “people” who annoy you on twitter and elsewhere aren’t actual people, so just block them and get on with it. #
Can you imagine what it would be like if one day we all tried to do stuff with computers and nothing worked.#
I had a dream where the six repub supreme court justices appeared in public naked, to reveal they all had tattoos of Comrade Putin in various places, some with more than others, and larger ones. #
  • This came straight from a twitter thread, no editing. #interop#
  • I've never thought I'd get any insights from drawing graph-like pictures of my outlines. I work fast. My outlines are snapshots of what I'm doing in projects on a day by day basis. Others are about communicating with others (reviewers, testers).#
  • Next up the ladder are blog posts. Those are indexed by my outline indexer, daytona. And of course google et al, which care less and less about my public writing, so fuck em.#
  • Finally is the book I've never written which will be a concordance of all the blog writing, w the most intelligent and witty parts up front. If you come up with software for that, I'm a customer. And I don't say that sarcastically, I bet google could do it, if they wanted to.#
  • PS: I forgot to mention twitter which is for public communication of early drafts of stuff that will go on my blog after i've written it here 5 or 10 times. :-)#
  • PPS: I've given up on posting serious shit on FB. Friends I care about post snarky jokes on serious stuff, and that's not fun. FB is for fun only not thought.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
