Tumbly goodness, page 17 Atom feed

Kottke says a tumblelog is a quick and dirty stream of consciousness… with more than just links. Anarchaia was the first, but there are many copies. And they have a plan.

  1. After complaining about Camino the other day, Nate pointed me to the Camino nightlies, which (to some extent) support Emacs keybindings in input and textarea elements (but, alas, C-y doesn't DTRT). CaminoKnight is a handy tool for automatically keeping your Camino nightly fresh.

  2. Radley Balko suggests using people's reaction to seat belt laws as a litmus test for libertarian collaboration with liberals. What would be the equivalent litmus test for collaborating with conservatives?

  3. Woz's thoughts on being a great engineer, from the upcoming iWoz (via Guy Kawasaki):

    1. Don’t waver.
    2. See things in gray-scale.
    3. Work alone.
    4. Trust your instincts.
  4. Since feed consumers can read just about every feed format, and feed producers are beginning to realize that they should generate just one feed, the standard feed icon doesn't need to have any text explaining which format the relevant feed is. Khoi Vinh doesn't seem to understand that this is a feature, not a bug. Fortunately, the people commenting on his post (the first three, anyway) are making this pretty clear.

  5. reddit's added the ability to report whole domains as spam. I'm using this to punish uber-linkjackers like mesoanarchy (c2ore.com), zanek (emailbattles.com), and Humorwriter (writingup.com).

  6. Lately I've noticed Camino getting all beach ball of death on me, whenever I'm reading S5 slides. This is extremely irritating. Both Safari and Firefox handle such presentations just fine.

    While I'm on the subject of Camino, its lack of Emacs-style (C-a and the like) key bindings in input and textarea is driving me crazy. Again, both Safari and Firefox get this right.
