For The Weekend: Thirteen

A few things for you:

  • Blogging Your Breakfast. Patrick Rhone recently linked to this 5 year-old piece of his. It’s not just written well but also wonderfully pieced together, an excellent example of how some of the best writing of recent times has in fact come from blogging.
  • Blog Engines and IndieWeb Controlling Upstream. Brad Enslen wants to see a turnkey CMS solution provided by the IndieWeb, amongst others, as opposition to even the likes of WordPress. It is certainly an idea worth considering, especially if we’re going to be serious about avoiding behemoth-driven monopolies of the web in the future.
  • Help redesign. Paul Robert Lloyd has submitted his proposal for an overhaul to the official Help pages. You can see his thinking behind the design, and leave a comment on GitHub.
  • Multiple Tab Organisation. Mozilla released update 64 for Firefox and it includes a feature I have long wanted: the ability to manipulate multiple tabs at once.
  • Kiko: System. Kahlil Lechelt is moving his personal blog to and along with it has posted the edits he made to the Kiko theme.
  • People First microcast. John Philpin’s first foray into the world of podcasts has well and truly launched, with episode 1 now out.
  • People First newsletter. Speaking of John and his People First endeavour, he is also launching a newsletter.
  • Your Turn to Roll is the new theme for Critical Role and it is 86 seconds of nerd joy. 😍

This is the last issue of the year. For The Weekend will be back in 2019.

Enjoy your weekend!
