Looking over the feed from Warren Ellis's site, I'm reminded of what Cartoon Gravity was always meant to be - a scrapbook of odds and ends that seem useful or relevant or inspirational to me. These are notebooks curated, as Warren says, with people looking over our shoulders as we do it.
As social media implodes/dies/dilutes/whatever it's doing, I think spaces like this become more important. There's no algorithm here. I don't know who you are, I'm not stealing your data, and I'm not trying to sell you anything. What I post here is mine, and you can look at it and, with a minimum of hassle, comment/talk about it. If something prompts an idea, or a deeper dive, or a conversation, that is the only goal.
Because there are no useful metrics, I have no idea how many people are reading this. So I'm going to keep building, and I'm going to make the effort to increase the frequency of posts on here, even if that makes each individual post thinner.
If you're new, I recommend bookmarking this with an RSS reader, because that is still the best way to create and curate your own webfeed, independent of those who are trying to turn you into a product.
Anyway... I haven't been to the Spaces website for a while, so here are some highlights that I found this morning...

I also posted a piece yesterday to my Development Hell newsletter about writing software: On writing software... - by Julian Simpson
Have a good one.
