  1. 🎵 listening to the album “Is” by Hey Ocean! I remember listening to songs they put up on NoiseTrade years back. Fun album.

  3. Today I learned that the Clippers used to be based in San Diego. Feels like something I should have known given the city’s history with major sports teams and the controversy with moving without NBA approval. Sounds like the Clippers are coming to Oceanside! Well, the Ontario G-league team. ...

  4. A garden blog where you can post the growth (or decline) of your plants and gardens. Would be really cool to see changes over time. Would also be cool to see more updates about people taking care of their plants and building a culture around that. We have Instagram accounts...

  5. A search engine that only checks posts from specific people and sites you follow. Specifically for recipes, reviews/recommendations. There’s a lot of SEO crap out there.

  7. I’d like to recognize Vizio for finally fixing Chromecast support on their “Smartcast” TV. Was getting close to 2 years of their headline feature being completely broken. Gold star for you ⭐️

  9. Happy 2024 everyone. Here’s to gradual improvement over all or nothing goals 🥂

  10. Was great to meet everyone at IndieWebCamp San Diego this weekend! Had some productive conversations and learned a lot about what other people are doing. I hope we can meet again soon.

  12. My favorite part of Apple Music’s “Spotify Wrapped” clone is seeing where the app broke and logged 100+ plays on something I only played a few times. Last year was a Charlie Brown Christmas with an honorable mention of 60 plays of The Prince of Egypt. This year was Pixar’s...

  13. I recently added a micropub server to make it easier to post to my site. Sorry if that means more dumb words. I’m hoping it encourages me to post more pictures though.
