@BenjaminBrooks That’s an interface issue, not a concept issue.
@BenjaminBrooks For what it’s worth, the concept of package managers is about a million times superior to the concept of an app store.
@SwaroopH Yeah, keep this episode away from Jobs.
Use Readability in Reeder to read linked posts from Daring Fireball. It works like a thing of beauty.
@ap00rv I don’t see how a difference in height of 5 inches can make a difference, but ok.
@ap00rv two questions: why is the rear mudguard so high, and why does the handlebar have horns?

“You don’t want to be ‘men’; you’d be all hairy and won’t live as long.”
It must take a lot of balls to tell yourself you’re fine because something hasn’t happened … yet.
Twitter for Mac needs a “Send to Instapaper”. Badly.

@yuyudin Fixed, and nope. I’m 3 days away from my 2nd year final exams.
@yuyudin Baby steps.
My first attempt at illustrating a post ~ http://t.co/Tuc03A9 Opinions?
@yuyudin I don’t consider doing something “doing” unless it is done well, so …
I wonder if I should practice and add “Illustrator” to my list of things that I (like to) do.
I’m probably the only one in the whole of England who doesn’t care about the wedding.
@anexasajoop Must take a while to get them done. Interesting stuff, nonetheless.
@anexasajoop You know, I haven’t been in Delhi long enough to see these buses, but those pictures don’t look photographed. Are they?
“Em dashes are so called because they are (at least historically) the width of the character m.”
It takes a certain amount of (positive) arrogance to think that the difference between you and someone successful is years of practice/exp.

Fuck laziness. This is one GOOD coffee!
I haven’t had my morning coffee yet because I’m lazy. #fml
@ankurb But I digress, obviously.
@ankurb Maybe you should be pointing fingers. Maybe all of us should. Maybe that’s why we don’t get anywhere, bc we’re too polite.
@ankurb If you mean the Indian Wordcamp, then no. That’s a problem with India, not with the organisers of Wordcamp.
@ankurb I’m not good at actively filtering noise when it’s coming at me, so I unsubscribe/avoid/ignore the source completely.
@ankurb You cannot organise a gathering where 90% of the people aren’t trying to sell you (on) something. And that’s a royal piss off.
… and I sense a rejection in the offing. #sigh
I’ve sent 8 mails today. #busyday
@ankurb Quite a bit happened during that WC. 2 years down the line, I have better things to do now than attend such useless gatherings.
@Naina Love how you say “classy people”.
If you don’t reply when I refuse you for something, you weren’t worth it to begin with.
Twitter says I’m similar to @stop.
Twitter is too kind.
I can’t take people seriously when they don’t have a link as a part of their Twitter bio.
@ap00rv Too bad.
@ap00rv So you *were* there?
@singpolyma Vi has SOME modifier-key functions, but for the most part, yeah. Modern interaction OTOH can easily do without modifier keys.
Twitter’s URL shortening just does one hop (bad)? Or do they store a one hop mapping for every URL they shorten (bad)?
2yrs down, I feel I should’ve spoken about flexible themes that change to suit the content at Wordcamp instead of rambling on abt w/e I did.
If you’re following me for Apple related stuff, unfollow me now. I will add nothing to your timeline in that regard that someone else won’t.
Why do we need modifier keys for shortcuts in apps when a text entry isn’t in progress? Why can’t I hit ‘R’ to refresh in Twitter (for Mac)?
$4.5 million for a domain name. #wow
Banged out a rant; slightly incoherent, very inarticulate, might never see the light of day.
Think I’ve said this before, but I avoid tweeting something I’ve taken more than a min to think abt. It’s either useless or needs >140 chars
The whole speech bubble metaphor for messages needs to die. Like right now.
Have technology, will worry.
Seems like @Tumblr caches a blog’s posts in the Dashboard separate to what you see on the blog itself.

“Innovation isn’t limited to raw functionality; if it was, we’d all still be using the command line.”—Adam Pash.
@mgkimsal Yes. I was just curious.
@mgkimsal Accent is one thing. “r” in Birmingham is like “r” in air, it’s an accent thing. “Aunt” and “ant” OTOH …
@jsmag Because “aunt” has a “u” in it that changes its pronunciation. You don’t pronounce “autumn” as “atom”, do you?
Why do Americans pronounce “ant” and “aunt” the same way?
Why rock the boat?
@ap00rv Except that retweets are fucked. But mostly, yes.
@ap00rv Twitter has a livestream API. Apps just need to use it.
@ap00rv As far as iOS goes, it’s a lack of an API to make HTTP calls in the background. Not Twitter’s fault.

Decent progress is decent. Not ideal. But decent.
@Naina Not true. Quotes are effective as the number of situations they apply to. There are many which don’t apply to anything.
I resist linking to quotes that just *sound* encouraging and big, but diffuse the moment you step back and think about it for a second.
