My targeted ads over on corporate media:

- A $1000+ coffee machine that likely makes coffee like a $100 machine

- Ebooks about how to hustle
- T-shirts that turn your "man boobs" into pecs
- Endless fintech

You know you've made a wrong turn when ...

I’m now getting roughly 20-30 approaches about placing ads on https://getblogging.org a day. I’m not doing it.

I don’t know why I worried: this baby is an almost absurdly chill traveler. He slept better on the plane than he does in his bed.

You know, I haven’t been to the movies in over three years, and at this point I’m not sure what would bring me back.

Just realized that maybe some people think that if it weren't for Twitter's community moderation America might be more receptive to conservative ideas? Because here's some breaking news: it's not Twitter. Twitter is the mirror. People genuinely care.

A full two-thirds of incoming phone calls to my cell are salespeople looking to find an executive at some company called Known that is different to the one I started. People thought we'd do badly on SEO and we didn't; on the other hand, these sales databases are killing me.

I'm really excited about what seems to be an uptick in tech-related co-operatives. Co-ops are a brilliant organizational tool and (done right) a way to build distribution of equity into an organization's core. One member, one vote. More, please.

Someone keeps trying to sign up to my newsletter with my own email address. That's not how it works! But also, it's got me worried that there's a weird bug somewhere on my website. Let me know if you're trying to subscribe and it's not working.

Let’s just say I’ll be very excited when my baby can sleep through the night.

They sell boy pacifiers and girl pacifiers. Our baby is biologically male, and - this will shock you!! - sucks on girl pacifiers. The whole thing is ridiculous; even more ridiculously, some people would actually care about this.

Asking what will replace Twitter is missing the point. It’ll be Substack and Mastodon and WordPress and Hive and Post and Tumblr and weird blogs and god knows what else. And that’s beautiful! It’s all the web. A monopoly on conversation is not the goal.
