November 9th will always be a special day. 22 years ago I started writing on my personal blog. I have not always been equally active on jeroensangers.com, but it will always be my digital home.
Once in a while, I rotate the OS language of my devices between Dutch, Spanish, Catalan and English. It is amazing how simply organizing yourself in another language completely changes your perspective on the work to be done.
Since I’m reinstalling my main computer, today I did my tasks using almost exclusively my iPad and iPhone.
It went way better than I expected, though there are some little things, such as text snippets, that I have to fix if I want to use my mobile devices more often for work.
Whenever I visit a website and a dialog pops up telling me that “We care about your privacy”, I always think “No, you do not. You’re just complying with the GDPR rules.”
lostinvested half the morning on finding good alternatives to Zencastr for recording podcast interviews locally, since Zencastr had tecnical issues.
Fortunately, the issues have been resolved, but now I have two alternative solutions ready in case they ever have issues again: a local solucion based on the Audio Hijack–BlackHole combination and Ringr.
I wish I could set a default skin tone for all emoji instead of having to do it one by one #firstworldproblems
I’ve been wanting to up mu meditation practice for a while now. Today I started Sam Harris’ 50 day training course Waking Up, since I’ve heard many good things about it.
The first session was—as expected—a very basic 5–minute breathing mindfulness exercise. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s session…
On this Micro Monday, I”d like to recommend @PatrickRhone. His posts make me either reflect or smile (and sometimes both).
🤔 I’m having mixed feelings on WordPress.
On one side, the platform is hopelessly bloated, and on the other side, anytime I want to change something on my site I need “Yet Another Plugin”, since WordPress doesn’t do it out of the box.
If I notice an error on a page on my site, is there any way to quickly open the current entry or page in WordPress?
Creo que debería existir un carné por puntos para periodistas. Para cada mentira que hay en sus artículos, el periodista pierde un punto. Para ganar puntos hay que encontrar mentiras en los artículos de otros periodistas.
Since VideoDrive doesn’t work on macOS Catalina (and I don’t see an update coming soon), I decides to give iFlicks a try for importing video files in the TV app.
So far I like it very much, especially the rules engine for customising and fixing meta data errors.
En este día hace tres años tuvo una videollamada que me cambió la vida. Era la primera conversación sobre lo que ahora es KENSO.
No teníamos ningún plan en concreto, no había propósito. Sólo había una conexión personal, muchas ganas de trabajar juntos y unos valores compartidos.
An interesting insight from the book This is not propaganda by Peter Pomerantsev: modern politics don’t censor anymore. The new way of censoring is by flooding the media with ‘alternative’ news, so it is difficult to know whether information is real or just part of a campaign.
Me pregunto cuánto dinero los medios de comunicación han ganado con todos los problemas en Cataluña…
Cuanto menos política, más felicidad…
I had a lot of fun trying out @NotionHQ today.
In no time I whipped up a functional board to plan my personal development experiments.
Today I made a huge mistake. When reading articles on several newspapers1 on the current events in Catalonia I made the humongous error to browse through the comments left by other reader. I instantly lost all hope for humanity.
Really, why do newspapers have comments at all? Don’t they feel responsable for their sites?
- I sometimes have the impression that I am the only person making the effort to always read articles published on both sides of the political spectrum ↩︎
What is a personal web site without a proper Now page?
