  1. What We Talk About When We Talk About What We Talk About When We Talk About Making | Quiet Babylon

    On “independent creators”, who is part of “our community”, who isn’t. Makes me want an at least partly explicit socialist / social democratic tech conference. Although it’d probably be unbearable.

    @houseofcoates Your secret's safe with me. So many things are starting to make sense now…

    @tomcoates This seems like an unrelated non-sequitur. I increasingly think @houseofcoates is alive and set up @tomcoates as an experiment.

    @tomcoates I’m not denying there are differences. Only that if I don’t *consciously* notice differences they don’t worry me.

    I know this stuff makes building complex sites more manageable, but if I’d wanted to spend my time doing it I’d’ve gone to sysadmin school.

    @tomcoates It’s like developing refined tastes in coffee, wine, etc… the rest of us don’t notice such tiny differences.Blissful ignorance :)

    Standard afternoon of front-end development: Tweaked my bash prompt; swore at Bundler; weighed up reliance on Ruby vs Node; wrote no code.

    twelescreen.com/uk/ on form: PM calls a PM; MOD promotes a BBC drama; NCSA on cyber crooks; Army on past victories; DWP promotes its ads.

    @abe1x Yes, the discovery is awful on Spotify. But that’s slightly separate from Morley et al making themselves findable.

    Just because I’d love to follow the playlists of people like Morley, Simon Reynolds, etc. Feels like part of the future we don’t have yet.

    It’s a shame Paul Morley doesn’t have/link to his own Spotify playlists given how much he appears to rave about it: theguardian.com/music/2014/sep…

    Idea: Only Fools & Horses special in which they realise, as owners of grotty 2-bed ex-council Peckham flat, they are actually millionaires.
