2014 Elsewhere

For each year I failed to blog much, I've tried to assemble a representative sample of my social media output that year. This is 2014.

Erin and I went to the annual ceremony at the Golden Hydrant at the southwest corner of Dolores Park.

Gangnam, I am in you.

Wow. Le Chamber. Simply amazing. Thanks for the reference, @sherrybuttparis @sgalineau!

In Korea Dunkin’ Donuts employees wear an awesome DD-branded flat cap and I WANT IT. Betting this will be my most Bostonian tweet this year.

Erin and I went to Vancouver on vacation:

Seaplanes are awesome. That is all.

#

While there, I wrote the longobjection:

On vacation, so I’m sitting in a coffee shop writing a formal objection. Wait, what?

#

Longdesc is not only a poor technical solution to the problem it purports to solve, it is also a redundant one. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2014Aug/0028.html

Later in the year I went to France, so I was able to go to The Cascade in Vancouver and La Cascade in Antibes in the same year:

In Paris so, obviously, I’m at @sherrybuttparis. Like you do.

#

I would seriously consider buying a cheesy Paris tourist T-shirt that said “I survived buying yarn at La Droguerie” if such a shirt existed.

We went as Marty and the Doc for Halloween:

For some reason @kirinqueen doesn’t want me to be Sexy Ice Bucket Challenge for Halloween this year.

Some random thoughts about the web:

Every time someone says "drive-by web," an angel loses her wings.

I guess I should really get around to writing the "Pragmatic, Use Case-Based, Slow Web Manifesto" after all.
