Owning your desires
This Ask Polly column by Heather Havrilesky Everything I Do Fails, So I Don’t Even Try is awesome. I believe a lot of this, generally do okay with it, but reading this makes it clear when I’ve fallen short.
The thing no one tells you is that hunger itself is divine. Wanting things is good for you. It’s only the shame around wanting that creates trouble.
Write-only Twitter interfaces
Sometimes, I just want to post something to Twitter and not get sucked in (it is a microblogging platform, after all).
One problem that I’ve had with non-Twitter composition services in the past is that they don’t support features that Twitter does (like image handling, or completion of usernames that I want to tag). Chirr does support image uploads, as a paid feature. Is this something I’d pay $30 per year for? Not sure yet.
