The times I’ve tried my hand at being a content creator, I didn’t have much success with it. I wanted to focus on making good content instead of trend-chasing, SEO-marketing bullshit, so it was hard to get traffic. And also I didn’t have any idea how to make good content.

Every time I complain about people making and presenting their content in terrible ways just to get better traffic, I get some reply sticking up for them:

“Look, if they don’t write for machines, nobody will see their work!”

If their work is terrible because you wrote it for a machine, nobody needs to see their work.

LinkedIn is soft-core hustle porn.

Taking an intro to data science course this summer, even though data science is behind almost everything I loathe in business.

I am pleasantly surprised that Brilliant Labs' Frame didn't turn out to be vaporware, but unsurprised that they are much rougher and more compromised than the promos implied.

I really enjoyed live-tweeting Apple's keynote last year (and got quite a nice response when I did!), but unfortunately this coming Monday is looking to be one of the craziest days of work I've ever attempted, so I'm going to be playing catch-up in the evening.

Overall, I feel pretty good about my takes from last June. It hasn't been a smash hit, but contrary to a lot of vitriol I saw here, didn't even make the top ten most dystopian tech products to ship in the last 12 months.

‘Fortnite’ Chapter 5, Season 3 is probably my least favorite season in years. I don't care for the weapon selection at all, none of the new items do it for me, the ‘Mad Max’ theming is fine but not as much fun as I had expected, and I really do not enjoy the emphasis on vehicle-based combat.

Disappointing, but in a way I'm also kind of glad—I'm extremely busy with work and summer classes just started, so it's a good time for them to ship a clunker.

Saw a complaint about how LinkedIn recently stopped reporting the exact number of applicants for a given role after 99, just showing "over 100."

I agree; saying "over 100 applicants" is not helpful at all. It should really say, "Move on, you're wasting your time."

@thurrott Makes sense. Things worked so well for them when they went chasing after Bing AI/Copilot. 🤣

I was just reflecting on how different this election year is on Mastodon compared to 2020 on Twitter.

Then and there, it was a constant barrage of news, panic, vitriol, and argument.

Here and now, every couple of days I see someone post, “Yeah, Biden sucks, but we have to vote for him,” and then some else saying, “Yeah, we know, shut up.”

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my momentum
Trying to keep up with to do’s
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t done enough

You say, “All hat, no cattle,” like it’s a bad thing, but honestly I have way more interest in wearing a cowboy hat than I do in having any kind of interaction with a steer.
