  • Rebooting my Blog for 2015 - davidnunez
    had meetups and gossip and arbitrary rifts between bloggers and journalers It was fun We had moments of joy By virtue of just having a personal website I had for me at the time relatively many followers To be fair I never was what we now laughingly refer to as an A list blogger I was around them though They were accessible and not so much only about accelerating their startups back then I enviously watched them assert what I had assumed was an undue influence at meetups and SXSW interactive before it got too big I m grateful to them now They created the tools and sparked the dialog so we had a good run there Blogging felt like something that could help build a quality community and a blog was a quasi private place to get stuff made and have Important People notice Then came Facebook and Twitter and all the other Starbucks s of personal web publishing The kids these days vomit bits and vines and snap whatevers to their like happy audiences who sip from myriad vapid firehoses The idea of constructing a site for readers is old fashioned and what amounts to the vintage web However I d like to think it was the tractability difficulty and rarity of maintaining a personal website that made it so fun for me back then I remember attending the SXSW where Twitter became a thing Before then my blog was where my ephemeral writing lived one off links to sites I found interesting short personal asides or the infamous blog posts about the blog i e meta posts So twitter has assumed the role as a place to share my external links and asides I shout into the ether and sometimes get a moment of recognition favorite or an echo retweets and responses Most of the time I don t My blog stagnated as tweets became easier than crafting a site Work moves survival and life got in the way of careful crafting of my site Tweets were the potato chips I needed to feel like I was an active online citizen Tools to shave a yak These blog reboots often included me making dramatic shifts in blog technology I think this site has rested on everything from MovableType to pMachine to Drupal Jekyll Middleman and even my own DIY amalgam In the end I decided to come back to an old friend WordPress Some kids these days I know tried to convince me that WordPress sucks and that I should just tumbl or write my own CMS There would have been a time I would have worked myself up over my choice of a technology platform I guess I don t have a dog in that fight I just don t have the interest It s not the point and WordPress has always just worked Indeed the tinkering and futzing with the perfect infrastructure and this drive to clean up the old stuff before posting new stuff

  • Week Notes 1836 - Crit Day & Thanksgiving Lull - davidnunez
    see myself making a presentation The challenge really for the next semester summer is to start narrowing down my topic area into something of a focus It s going to have something to do with robots probably kids education as well I m going with the strategy that I will pick a thesis topic that really fires me up but that I will also crank out lower entropy side projects with a lot less pressure but maybe more risk on a more frequent basis to shore up places where I d like to improve my skillsets to satisfy whatever shiny bobble seems interesting at the moment During crit day I closed my laptop and pulled out my big 9 12 sketchbook I use the bigger notebook as a place to do a lot of brainstorming something about those large open pages makes me feel quite a bit free to explore broadly The crit day presentations coming in and out of focus for me provided great Big Thinking ambient background noise I filled up quite a number of pages with some new ideas to explore during side voyages or even as feeders to a more coherent thesis topic Over the thanksgiving day weekend I took the time to disconnect a bit and really relax It was the lull before the storm the next few weeks are going to be ridiculously intense Yesterday I met with my advisor to talk about research and projects and that conversation prompted me to pull out OmniPlan and actually make my life into a Gantt chart for the next month There are class projects to complete but also core research milestones to hit before the end of the year There s a nice 6 week or so break before classes begin in the Spring people tend
