Watch my 5m review, on how this was both the BEST & WORST EVER Apple Product Event: www.youtube.com/watch | #Apple #AppleEvent
Biggest High-Level Issue: Why 1 hour on hardware and only 1 minute on software?? Is it cos software is free?? Because #iOS14 is WAAAYYYYY more important than #AppleWatch or #iPadOS put together | #Apple #AppleEvent
#iOS14 coming tomorrow! | #Apple #AppleEvent
Is this audience-free #AppleEvent the most thought through video of all time? Love details like them subliminally seeding the UI of new #iOS14 Widgets | #Apple
Then on the explanation, she says “the same footprint as the previous Air”. Great complete redesign Tim!! | #Apple #AppleEvent
iCEO claim: “#iPadAir is a completely redesigned experience”. Isn’t it just a slightly worse #iPadPro?? | #Apple #AppleEvent
Onward to #iPad : #iPadOS14 is improving #ApplePencil : great, an actually humanizing touch!
Oh they’re actually charging for this bizarre form of obsessive solo masochism?! #Fitness+ #Apple #AppleEvent
‘Treadmilll’ & ‘Walk’ is possibly the saddest combination of two words since ‘Apple’ & ‘Watch’ | #AppleWatch #Fitness+ #SveltePT #TreadmillWalk
#FamilySetup is an interesting effort to come good on Tim’s claim of ⬇️ in #iPhone supremacy. Also seems like an interesting way for kids to @WaitUntil8th / #ShotonflipPhone / #SmartphoneDetox
My Dad (a #Doctor) says re. #BloodO2: “Well it’s a clever addition from a #marketing point of view with #COVID in mind. Would only very rarely be useful to an individual” #OverHyped
Straight off the bat: no mention of #iPhone12 | This is due to delays to late-Oct iPhone 12 release, but “iCEO” Tim Cook spins it as adjacent products Watch & iPad being more important | #Apple #AppleEvent
Live Blogging the September “Apple Media Event” here, with special focus on #digimini #humanetech and #humour. Why? Because they are bigger than my country 🇬🇧’s 100 biggest companies. 20m tuned into Boris’s speech, arguably this is more important | #apple 🍎🍏

Warning: backup your iPod Classic before connecting to Mac OS Catalina (or soon Big Sur). Otherwise it may wipe 60GB of 2013’s greatest hits! It’s fine for me, I kinda wanted to devote it to my own demos: but others may not appreciate the cleansing quite as much!
Return of the 90s: mxb.dev/blog/the-… . Fantastic take on renewal of personal sites like Carrd. This is facilitated by tools like this WebMention (rather than commenting directly). However, Forgot to mention the humble FlipPh.one XD

Holla my alma mater @Uchicago CS Dept for inventing a leading #privacy tool. IMO needs a web #rebrand to go mainstream: sandlab.cs.uchicago.edu/fawkes/ HMU Can see a good insta feed for it tho.

The moment that #NSA start playing #Snowden and calling out #surveillance, is the moment it becomes unconcionable not to #PardonSnowden.

“Hello, World!” (of POSSE) | now syndicating micro.blog/w4rner | #OwnYourSocialMedia #IndieWeb
#DailyFaily : Accidental Email Spam
If you ditch g00gle (👏) and export your Calendar:
Don’t do as suggested & import into Calendar app (iCal, Fantastical) to see past events. Data includes invitees -> new app sends them email invites to these (past) events leading to much 🤷!
1). Date metadata is retained. This makes my micro.blog ‘hello, world!’ look a little silly occuring after a solid 8 posts! 2). CAUTION: WP blog tags are converted to Categories. (see example from my final blog post calling out a bunch of Big Tech platforms)
Trying the Wordpress import feature, to bring over my old codingforpeoplepeople.wordpress.com blog. Where I differ from the help docs (https://help.micro.blog/2017/wordpress-import/) is that it downloaded an XML automatically, rather than WXR.
Looking for a standing desk, to put on top of an existing kitchen table. Went to a texpo in Ningbo, China last summer (when that was allowed) and LocTekMotion.com seemed good. Thought micro.blog community would be the sort to 💯 a wfh setup!
Feature request: allow Category selection on MacOS app.
Turns out Micro.Blog sees # as more of Markdown’s ‘octothorp’ than the phenomenally successful hashtag of social media fame. Though only if at start of the line. #Octothorp when it’s first word Not first word #Hashtag
Big up Caroline Lucas MP for Brighton (2nd most live music venues) for pushing for more support for live music & freelancers. Vid: www.dropbox.com/s/woji5x0…
What do parties think we’re talking about with ‘arts & culture’? Labour - ‘artists, freelancers’ SNP & LibDem - ‘live music, festivals’ Tories - ‘opera, railway museums & agricultural shows’ #EmpressOfBlandings
HMG say most money will go to Britain’s “crown jewels”… ‘V&A, Albert Hall’ I wonder where all these places are?? #SmalltownDreamer
Arts&Cult Qs— £1.59bn funding: HMG claims “to support freelancers” (like CeruleanSounds.com). But Secretary Dowden said that min. grant was £1m. Minister Dinenage’s explanation: “big institutions will bring up ecosystem”. Might aswell have said ‘trickle down’!!
Wanna setup cross-post to LinkedIn.com/in/w4rner & Twitter.com.com/@vv4rner next week. I’ll consider Medium.com/@w4rner if you can filter only for longform posts?? For now, already got Mastodon.Social/@w4rner. Clicked Disable Cross-Posting (seems like temporary toggle): test.
Micro.blog doesn’t seem to impose a character limit. I will keep mine to Twitter’s 280 out of respect to readers, and to maintain ability to syndicate.
Web-app: you can’t copy&paste photos in. Have to save & post 1 at a time (here’s a bonus #ShotOnflipPhone, from 1 year ago… doesn’t time fly!)
Have figured out how to add Categories. Then click three dots to Show Categories. I’ve created one called ‘Learning microblog’ (you can’t use punctuation), which I’ll tag posts like this, so future n00bs might have a faster learning curve #agileEdu
My Micro.blog isn’t on my FirstWeek FlipPh.one social media blacklist, so feels like a great time to start posting! Next week, I’ll post photos from this week (7-day photo challenge). Here’s a couple of my faves others #ShotOnflipPhone over the past 2 years.
Why?Imagine you really want to extract some information from a website. Let’s say you really need to know the weather information at lots of airports immediately. I’m thinking ‘Airplane’ set in 2018 with on-board Wi-fi: “We need to land this plane where there isn’t a storm. And don’t call me Shirley!”…
Silicon Valley diversityMark Zuckerberg, Evan Spiegel, Tim Cook. What have they all got in common? Yeah - apart from being rich enough to use iPhones as toilet paper.
White dudes the lot of them. But then again I just picked these three names. What do I know? Let’s see what the data says.…
I travel 4,000 miles across the Atlantic to get away from the humdrum shitshow that is recent British politics - and whaddayaknow: our first data science assignment is on the 2017 General Election.…
Some exciting news: I have been taken on for my first data science project… in The Real World. And I couldn’t have asked for a more exciting project.
A few weeks ago, Jeff Asher, FiveThirtyEight.com’s crime reporter, wrote an article entitled “The First FBI Crime Report Issued Under Trump Is Missing A Ton Of Info”. In it Jeff describes the changes in the FBI’s Crime in the United States report - which is the main go-to for researches wanting quantitative information on crime - between 2015 and 2016. Basically, there are a ton of tables missing this year.…
