Weeknote 15 - Counting Down the Days

Need to reconsider some of our processes at work.


Still fairly overwhelmed by the impending deadline at work.

And, yeah, I’m hoping that I can get us to change the process so this won’t hit me so hard next time.


Finally got around to watching Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

And, yeah, it’s amazing. Definitely a contender for best superhero movie ever. Probably better than Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 1 or 2.

That’s pretty darn good.

It’s also just a truly excellent animated film.

Counting Down the Days

Heading back home to Iceland next week. I haven’t been back in a year. It hasn’t been this long between visits home for me in almost 20 years.

Maybe it’s the extended stay away, a sign of growing old, or just that Iceland isn’t deteriorating politically at the same rate as the anglophone world, but I’ve been missing the place a little bit more strongly than usual.

Montréal’s consistently unpleasant weather sure doesn’t help.

Do you ever wonder why a newly released open source project matters? Why it doesn't? How new or old standards or specifications affect your work? Why the web, tech, and publishing are the way they are?

This is an unapologetically political newsletter about tech, the web, and publishing—with context.

Because, to decide whether to use a piece of software, web standard, or open source project, you need to know why it‘s interesting, not just that it‘s interesting.
