This week I read about changes in the US Navy, another nuclear accident in Russia, a prank gone wrong, and more.
Lately, I’ve been making steady progress on my side project, which I’m currently calling Digital Family Cookbook. I’m making it as a content management system for cooking recipes. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m writing it using Node.js, React, & GraphQL. It’s been quite a learning curve, but I’m definitely glad I’ve been working on it. The tools are pretty cool and easy-ish to use once you get used to the syntax and some of the idiosyncrasies of React and JSX.
I’ve decided to start this back up. Some interesting thoughts about making the data social media has on us transferrable, DIY Phone Farms, and a new software development podcast I’ve found.
At the beginning of July, I decided to change up my gym routine. I had been running a variation of the P.H.U.L. routine, but decided I wanted to try something a little more intense since I felt like I was plateauing with both deadlifts and bench press.
Over the last 12 weeks, I’ve been running the P.H.U.L. Workout Routine.
Two and a half months in, I figured I’d reflect on where things stand with regards towards working towards the goals I set for myself.
Not too long this week. We look at the anti-vaccine movement, a new drug treatment for depression, Facebook’s “supposed” change, and a neat proof of concept for spying.
2 weeks combined this time as I was in NYC last weekend. This week I read about loot boxes, whistle blowing, YouTube conspiracies and more.
It’s a little late, but here we go. This week we look at code, login forms, and the old Altavista search engine.
This week looks at controversies at Instacart and DoorDash, possible changes in MLB rules, French battlefields in WWI and WWII, & Google/Facebook lock-in.
