Here's publicFolder for the Mac. This is the howto page for the desktop app. And the source for the Node package that implements the core tech, so you can build your own shell around the functionality.

9/25/2017 11:24:22 AM


Here's instantDaveClientDemo. It demos the tech that connects the Instant Dave server with the client. It's based on webSockets and JSON. We can build on this. Here's a demo app, in source, that you can run or modify. It updates in realtime as I post new items and modify existing ones.

Shep Smith tells it like it is, on Fox.

9/25/2017 4:24:45 PM


Of course the kneeling is about race. What a fucked up situation, where American citizens are being killed by the police because of their skin color, and it's gotten to the point where the only way to get attention for the problem is for athletes to protest, and then of course the openly racist American government says smugly it isn't about race. Very cute. But you're not fooling anyone. It's about race.

9/25/2017 2:23:37 PM


It seems to me perhaps we're getting close to the last minute we can change leadership before we're in a full-scale war with North Korea. I would like to see a new president in place, whose first job is to pull us back from this brink.

9/25/2017 11:17:10 AM


Wow OKC loves Melo! That's cooool.

9/25/2017 11:28:37 AM


Every day I see something on Facebook that I'd like to post a pointer to on my linkblog. But I never do. I love the web. I won't betray it.

9/25/2017 10:49:21 AM


BTW, to continue yesterday's thread about geeks with good hearts. There are tech community people journalists can and should rely on. The press has assumed that we all work at big companies, but the truth is most of the ones you can trust do not. To my friends in journalism, could you please, next chance you get, explain to your peers that there are people who want to help without locking you in. Thanks.

9 - Matt Mullenweg in 2006

People are surprised that Russia was able to use trolling to change the outcome of our election, but I wasn't. I had experienced at the hands of some Russian-like tech companies in the early 2000s. I was reminded of it by a screed posted by Matt Mullenweg in 2006. Excellent stuff. All technologists should write and think this way.

Matt's post came near the end of a long story involving open technology and some very big tech companies. The Feed Validator app was written by people who worked at IBM and Google, the equivalent of Russia in this story. They ruled by flame. If you said something they didn't like, boom -- a swarm of trolls emerged to push you back. I assume they wanted RSS to fragment, the same way the Russians today want Americans to be divided.

To this day it issues warnings about my feeds, which you might image would be pretty good RSS. I ignore their warnings and tell other people to ignore them too. Their feed validator, which is also being run by the W3C, is useful when you're developing feed-producing software. It does find bugs.

But as Matt points out, the whole point of a standard is to bring people together. Which of course is why the big tech companies hated it. Their trolls had the same effect as the Russian trolls did, almost 20 years earlier. To drive us apart.

9/25/2017 8:54:00 AM

10 - Trolls on Twitter

Yesterday Joan Walsh posted a screed on Facebook (sorry no pointer, just a screen shot) about trolls on Twitter, and how Twitter needs to do something about it.

I asked a straight/naive question -- Isn't blocking him enough?

She replied: "I've blocked him at least 11 times. I'm done. He's totally recognizable, he uses the same screen name, just adds a number! He's ugly and abusive, and why can't they figure it out? And it always takes about a dozen of us to get his new ID blocked."

And then Hue Ha said: "Joan it's not personal. Twitter is losing $100 million every three months; unfortunately protecting their users is not a priority. And these tech companies are full of servers; there's very few people in them."

She went on to tell how she was a driver for Uber. "Uber only communicated with drivers by canned emails, people think it's like American Airlines with a lost luggage department."

So the problem is and isn't solvable. If Twitter had the personnel to do it, they could recognize the pattern and shut him down when he pops up. Or at least be more responsive to claims of abuse. But they don't have the people, or the money to hire them. Twitter is bleeding cash. They can't throw money at it.

More and more I'm realizing that Twitter and Facebook are just new instances of something we're really familiar with -- mail lists and discussion groups, without the human qualities. We found the answer, many years ago -- blogs. There's a physics to online discourse. Twitter/Facebook solve some of the problems of discussion groups, with blocking and following, but underneath it all it's still the same problem, everyone's voice is equal, so one troll can shut the whole thing down.

There are things I like about Facebook, still -- for example it allows me to interact with a TV personality like Walsh. I don't get angry with her for posting regurgitated MSNBC talking points, because she is a source of them. But when I want to speak and have a chance at being heard, nothing beats my blog.

9/25/2017 8:15:19 AM


My next project, if all goes well, is to release example source that shows how to hook into the same flow of events that Instant Dave does in a browser-based JavaScript app. Not sure what if anything will become of it, but maybe it's possible to hook WordPress up to this, or anything else for that matter. Never know when a standard might take root. 🚀 💥

9/24/2017 11:25:21 AM


Kneeling during the anthem is a mild form of protest given what Trump is doing. There are no checks and balances to stop him from firing missiles. Even climate change and repealing health care are insignificant threats compared to nuclear war.

9/24/2017 10:02:39 PM


Because of a piece in the NYT yesterday, people on the net are crapping on programmers, and I don't think very many, if any, have any idea what we do. I even unfriended one person because it's just too fucking offensive. People lose it when it comes to this topic. Yes we are mostly men. And we work really hard to do stuff to please you. And if you want to help I'm pretty sure most programmers will create plenty of space for you to do that. I certainly will. We're mostly nice people. Yes there are assholes. But there are asshole women too. But for god's sake the programmers aren't in general the sexual harassers. We're fairly meek people. So stop shooting with such imprecision. Focus on the problem.

9/24/2017 8:47:03 AM


If HRC were president, 3 million citizens wouldn't be forgotten.

9/24/2017 12:22:02 PM


People don't get something very basic about the United States. Our system gives very limited power to elected leaders. What's left is what we call freedom. When the president tells us how he wants to be worshipped, that's a president who has gone way too far. We have to find out what the "or else" is. What happens if the people don't walk out of the stadium when the players take a knee. It's one thing when he bluffs a foreign country and they know it, but now he's bluffing us.

9/24/2017 12:00:22 PM


Try listening to people you disagree with, not dismissing. The problems will never be resolved until everyone does.

9/24/2017 10:32:54 AM


This could be bad design, not a stupid user. ;-)

9/24/2017 11:49:02 AM


Tweet of the century.

I just scored a 3-point CitiBike-angel load-balance!

9/23/2017 2:52:38 PM


Kimmel sets an incredible example of a citizen who decides to get informed, and bases his opinions on facts not lies.

9/23/2017 9:45:53 AM


I know there are bigger things to worry about but I pay the NYT and I still get an interstitial before I can read the article.

9/23/2017 9:51:43 AM


It's time to stop playing the national anthem at sports events.

9/23/2017 9:53:11 AM


No race or religion owns the national anthem. I am not pledging allegiance to white Christian men. Everyone should remain seated.

9/23/2017 9:58:41 AM


The national anthem is what any of us want it to be. That's what it means to be American. There is no ruling race, religion or gender.

9/23/2017 10:00:15 AM

25 - Melo to the Thunder!

I got back from a long bike ride around Manhattan to the news that Melo has been traded from the Knicks to the Thunder.

I like the deal.

Melo gets a fresh start, and has two all-star team-mates, Paul George and Russell Westbrook, who also happens to be last year's MVP.

Westbrook gets an outside shooter in Melo.

Melo will not be the alpha guy on this team. It's Westbrook's team. It'll be interesting to watch him make the adjustment.

The Knicks like it because they get to start over and they didn't have to give up a first round draft pick (rebuilding teams have valuable draft picks) and they got the Thunder to take the remaining two years on Melo's contract, and free up a huge amount of cap space for the Knicks, who can now invest it in younger players more suited for their young team. (They should also get some veterans to school them.)

Melo leaves with the affection of the fans. He will be cheered when he returns in his OKC uniform. It wasn't what we all hoped it would be with Melo, but he stayed cool at times when he didn't really have to, and in NY sports that's always appreciated.

It's a fair, competent deal, and makes sense for both teams.

And as a Melo fan I'm glad to see he'll get a shot at the post-season. I don't think the Thunder are championship contenders, not enough depth in the lineup, but it should be some good basketball.

9/23/2017 2:58:27 PM

26 - How to use Twitter

If people read your tweets, you will get trolled.

  • If they don't, you won't, so you can skip this tutorial.

How to know if the person is trolling you, for sure?

  • You can't know for sure, you have to make a guess.

Ask yourself this question...

  • Do you think this person is arguing with you?
    • If so, hit Mute. Save yourself the grief. You might want to argue yourself, but know that it will not leave you feeling happy or satisfied. There is no victory in an online argument.
      • Not that there is any victory in a real-world argument either. 💥

9/23/2017 10:18:44 AM


An update to the outlineBrowser code to incorporate saving and restoring expansion state, as used in the About tab.

9/22/2017 12:06:42 PM


Extra bonus. I made it so that the this.how outlines remember expansion state. Example. And since this is a standard feature in PagePark, it should work for OPML files served by PagePark as well. OPML is the format of Little Outliner so you can see how the pieces fit together.

9/22/2017 4:25:37 PM


People who say Jimmy Kimmel should "stay in his lane" don't understand self-government. It's his responsibility to be involved in policy.

9/22/2017 7:42:28 PM


Putin used Facebook as a platform, just as anyone else could have. He figured something out that our top people were too complacent to figure out. And when journalists complain, remember they could have competed with Twitter and Facebook to be the platform for politics, and they punted too.

9/22/2017 10:41:06 AM


In 2009, I wanted Obama to bring the gospel of the Internet to the world, and use it to create democracy everywhere. When he didn't do it, he left the door open for Putin to use it to create kleptocracy everywhere.

9/22/2017 9:55:23 AM


Wes Anderson​'s new film has talking dogs living on an island of trash.

2FA is not as good as people think because the second factor is not very secure. It's pretty easy to hijack your phone. This weakness has been used to steal Bitcoin.

9/22/2017 9:23:24 AM


Almost 70 percent want the govt to stabilize ObamaCare, not throw it out. I wonder how Repubs plan to overcome that if they succeed. That's why I think they must want to fail at repeal. They understand polling math better than any of us do.

9/22/2017 9:04:53 AM


It might just be me but is the Daily podcast and the NYT tilting more toward the Repubs? Omitting key bits of info that would expose their lies? For example, there's no debate that the new Repub health law would eliminate protection for pre-existing conditions because there is no mandate. It's not health insurance without a mandate. Not really for anyone but certainly not for people with pre-existing conditions.

9/22/2017 8:33:13 AM

36 - The About outline remembers

A nice-to-have feature in the About tab here on Scripting News. It now remembers the expansion state of the outline, so if you go somewhere else and come back it will be as you left it. Here's a short demo.

9/22/2017 11:51:35 AM


There's a new My Projects section in the About outline.

9/21/2017 10:29:44 AM


Roger Stone predicts a Civil War if Trump is impeached. What happens when they find out how they lost their health insurance?

9/21/2017 2:31:05 PM


Experian writes to say my email address is on The Dark Web. They offer advice how to deal with it. Change your password. Buy $29 service from them. Buy the deluxe $109 service again of course from them (guessing at the prices, they don't say in the email). Okay first what is The Dark Web? I honestly have no idea. Second. I publish my email address on my blog. I don't in any way try to hide it. Experian is one of the three credit-rating agencies. This is dishonest. Deceitful. Sleazy.

9/21/2017 1:08:26 PM


There are a lot of posts going up today of the form: "I was a healthy person subsidizing sick people until something bad happened and I needed health care." But that doesn't tell the whole story. I was a healthy person subsidizing sick people until I needed life-saving heart surgery 15 years ago. Because of a sequence of COBRA, RomneyCare and ObamaCare, I have been insured ever since. Each year because of my age, I pay huge premiums. At times as much as $1500 a month with high dedictibles. In the interim, each year I used a fraction of that amount of health care. In other words as a person with a pre-existing condition (the definition of not healthy) I have been subsidizing sick people who need more health care than I do, and am happy to do it.

9/21/2017 9:23:42 AM


If your site pops up a dialog asking the reader to subscribe to an email newsletter, I won't post it to my linkblog. I'll find another site that explains the concept. Same with videos that autoplay. You really hate your users if you do that. I don't support sites that hate their users.

9/21/2017 8:49:24 AM

42 - Unmasking is the new Shariah Law

Repubs invent these scary concepts that don't have any substance, because the words sound important and menacing. We don't want to be governed by Shariah Law. That kind of implies that Shariah Law is being imposed on us. That's the joke. It isn't. They play the same ugly game with voter suppression (they call it something else). And unmasking. I guess they must have been masked for a reason, you say. To protect someone. And to unmask them, well that's obviously bad, right? Haha. You fell for it. Even when you argue against it, saying it's harmless, you're falling for it. Maybe the best thing is to play along? Why were they masked in the first place? What were they hiding? Maybe you have to play the game to defuse it. Bottom line -- Repubs are scum. If you're a Repub and don't feel you're scum, maybe it's time to start something new.

9/21/2017 8:45:02 AM

43 - Write here, cross-post nowhere

I just cross-posted something from this blog to Twitter and Facebook. It gave me a nauseous feeling when the first comment came in on Twitter, from a stranger, who said that unmasking was bad and provided a link to support his belief. A bot. Even if he's flesh and blood, even if he thinks he's sentient, he's just human spam. This is the end of the line for discussion boards. We tried that a long time ago and blogging won out, for good reason. No. More. Cross-posting.

9/21/2017 9:08:37 AM

44 - Finding myself in therapy

I was in therapy for eight years, a long time ago, and while I often asked for advice there was only one time when the therapist gave it.

She said this: Sometimes people are wrong.

There had been a family trip I wasn't allowed to participate in. I had asked to go, and was told no. I was angry and disappointed. I couldn't find a way for it to make sense. Her point was this. They are being bad family members. You can stop grappling with this. You can stop trying to see it from their point of view because they are just wrong.

I asked why this time she made an exception. She said she was human too, and didn't want to go through this with me, yet again. I suppose she wondered why I couldn't figure it out. Or maybe she thought I was ready to hear it. I learned something about myself then, that through nature and/or nurture, my sense of self had disappeared. I had lost the ability, if I ever had it, to see things from my own point of view. It was a big day for me. I'll probably never forget it.

After that event, I saw lots of opportunity to see things from my own point of view. An example. I had gone to a conference and had mistakenly scheduled two things for the same time. I was fretting. What do I do about this? Which one should I go to and which should I blow off? My new inner voice found the answer, in a question: What do you want to do? That would not have occurred to me before.

The piece that inspired this story tries to answer the question of why therapists don't just tell you what to do. The purpose of therapy is to help you discover yourself. I know that sounds dorky and new-age-y, but it is literally what you're doing. You're bouncing around the world, looking for answers everywhere but the only place that can provide them, inside yourself. But if you don't know you exist, how can you find that place? A therapist patiently shines the light on that space, over and over, hoping that this year, or maybe next, you'll figure it out.

9/21/2017 8:22:27 AM


Here's a podcast for the handful of people who try my software before it's public. I have a project ready for testing now, this podcast explains.

9/20/2017 12:54:29 PM


I've been steadily releasing new versions of the publicFolder package over the last few days. Fixing bugs, adding stats and callbacks. The current version is v0.4.23.

9/20/2017 1:26:57 PM


I did finally listen to Trump's speech at the UN, in full. It was horrifying. It's like he pulled his pants down and took a shit on stage.

9/20/2017 5:38:30 PM


Also the Daily podcast about the Trump speech is worth listening to. They take it all in stride, which is somewhat disturbing. But it's useful.

9/20/2017 5:42:23 PM


This dialog pops up when I click most Medium links. I hate this dialog with a passion. It's a paywall thing. Before the paywall goes up. The word that best describes the feeling is bilious, which btw is a great word. ;-)

9/20/2017 12:33:21 PM


The thing about silos is they do things to your reader they don't do to you so you don't know they're doing it. And they know you don't know.
