My downtime on ghost(pro) last month… …didn’t exist. For the third month running.
Nice work, @tryghost team.

This was our November:
Apple’s new group FaceTime ad is awesome:
First Ghost with Koenig and now WordPress with Gutenberg. Publishing platforms are changing fast. I suspect in the medium to long term Medium’s biggest impact will have been leading the way on a new paradigm for CMS interfaces.
Xeni Jardin on the Sandberg/Soros mess:
If she was willing to do this over a mere billionaire, imagine what Facebook might have done in researching news organizations and reporters who are critical of Facebook?
Oh, this looks exciting for #mojo folks.
Looking good on the way back, too.
Different view for my “commute” this morning.
Dr Pancakes is IN.
Last night I dreamt I was interviewing Jony Ive at Apple Park. Never gonna happen, but my goodness, that’s a conversation I’d like to have.
Success - new belt! #soobahkdo
Testing times for Iris… #soobahkdo
I feel this e-mail subject line is unlikely to be bettered today:
Iris wants you to know that she has pizza 🍕
While I do still love a good paper book, there are times that digital books are just so much more useful, especially in non-fiction.
One of the things that I’m most angry with the social networks about is the way they deprived me of so many interesting voices. How many bloggers whose in-depth thoughts I valued, enjoyed and was challenged by have been sucked into the easy dopamine hit of social networks? How many exchanged depth, value and complexity for soundbite posts and memery?
One of the things I’ve valued over the last couple of years of micro.blog has been finding new voices and thinkers, who have been prepared to put the time and effort into writing things of worth, and to linking to those of others. It’s a new tool to surface an neglected way of thinking and working, and I value it.
Thanks everyone. You are genuinely enriching my life.
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of.

I feel like I want to see some more thought around getting the fuck off social networks but being able to maintain lines of connection between friends, comrades and fellow-travellers in addition to the Republic Of Newsletters and the Isles Of Blogging. Status pages as the signals from the Invisible Monastery, or, possibly, Hobo Code marks on the walls of the web. Planning for the oncoming dark age?
Building distributed community processes is tough, but fun. And less likely to screw up democracy.
