Journal

What I’ve been doing recently, a blog, a scrapbook, and a place to show what I am currently listening to and watching. It’s also a bit of playground to grab data from a few services I like.

Recent changes
  1. Add 'reading' section to the journal

  2. Rollout 'recent changes' across most pages

  3. Move TOC defs out templates; auto-gen ids

Writing

I try my best to write down a few thoughts each year, but I won’t hold myself too accountable.
