Instapaper said

I really like the service/application Instapaper, but yesterday I noticed I kept putting more things into it and not taking them out. I am hoarding stuff – in hopes to Read Later (thats the text of the browser bookmarklet), which I truly want to do, but just keeping up with what’s new, tends to leave no time for what I had wanted to Read Later. I posted this thought to twitter and through the magic of twitter and a very thoughtful Instapaper I received the email tweet I had been expecting.  Now that Instapaper has taken an interest in my dilema, even if just responding to my wondered aloud pseudo request, I promise to try to hoard less and read more – later.

hugeurl.com makes URLs huge. It’s like Cory Arcangel’s Total Asshole Compression which increases file size, but for URLs.

photos from the past

Twice a month I get an email from photojojo that shows me a few pictures from my flickr from 1 year ago in a Photo Time Capsule. As things move so fast, and, at least for me, time to reflect and revisit past events seems to be missing from my regular routine. This is why I like getting these emails so much. I can take a peek at a year ago, revisit some memories and generally brighten my day. At the bottom of the mail is a great little form to send yourself a message in the future that will be delivered with your photojojo mail a year from now. A message to oneself feels a lot different than a photo that was meant for both myself and others, but I am interested in reading what I said a year from now.

last week I received my muxtape-to-tape from russelldavies. I still haven’t listened to the tape (I cheated and listened to crusty.muxtape.com

Many thanks to Russell for this little gem of internet physicality.

The undersea cable that make up much of the long haul data transfer on the internets. This map from the Guardian details the incident where a cable was damaged by a ships anchored and internet traffic was significantly affected. Hacker Tourist’s may be interested in the story surrounding many of these cables as reflected by Neal Stephenson in Wired magazine a few years ago.

what are you doing, you know, more generally

my first post to dawdlr went up today. dawdlr is set up by one of the more interesting people around, Russell Davies who describes it as such:

I’ve tried to make dawdlr way slower than twitter. I reckon most people I know twitter about twice a day, so dawdlr is going to update twice a year. To try and get people to say what they’re doing, you know, more generally.

Its been over six months since I posted. I must have missed last Novembers posting by a few short days.
