Spoke too soon-ish!

Well, now that’s odd. I switched from the WordPress iOS client back to Safari just to see how that blog post looked in the metal, as it were. The last page I was on was the WordPress web client. And now I find that there’s a toolbar here that certainly wasn’t there before. A mobile-ified

First Post from THE FUTURE!

This is a boring post that will do nothing to enhance your understanding of the world or the amount of joy you experience in it. So, a typical tee shot from your correspondent. It’s a little bit remarkable from this end, however. I’m writing and posting this with the iPhone 6 Plus. Hey! Cool! New

“Amanda Palmer and The Littlest Dalek”

Another brilliant startup idea

I’m going to need some investors (also, people who know how to build a really good app and how to create and maintain mission-critical messaging infrastructure). Because I have had one of those Can’t Possibly Miss ideas. You’d like to turn off your phone during off-hours. But there’s always a chance that you’ll miss a message
