How do you listen to music on Spotify? - Matt Maldre
I try to listen to albums from time to time, just for the old school feel. But I like the flexibility of making my own playlists.

Automattic buys Tumblr for dirt cheap; adult content still banned | Diverse Tech Geek
I do hold out some hope that various web databases will start adhering to an open API that will allow for connections between large amounts of websites. Wordpress has a great public API. Most sites actually have this API open for anyone to query.

There MIGHT be the chance that blog posts will be more connected together. It's just up to people to make systems that are easy for the general public to use. I can see someone developing some sort of Facebook-like interface that connects together the world's blog posts on Wordpress and Tumblr.

Reflecting: July 2019 – Rebecca Rose Thering
How have you been feeling lately?
Tired, thoughtful

What is lifting you up?
My six-week-old daughter

What is weighing you down?
Not enough sleep.

Where will you place your attention in August?
Oh wow. We are halfway through August.
* I've been thinking about how to apply my new skills as a Wordpress systems developer. It's been fun learning how to import/export data into and out of Wordpress as part of my day job. I've been thinking about how I can make my own personal projects with these skills. Earlier this year I was building a website that catalogs all the baseball cards signed by baseball players with a Bible verse inscription. I might get into that again, and build the site so it can connect to the larger world of metadata vocabularies through Linked Open Data.
* Building photo albums online
* Design a birth announcement card

Saving the Planet: A stroll with the boys | Jorge Garcia
I'd like to see the art project he makes! (I have a 3-year-old daughter and a six-week-old daughter, and I used to collect stuff found in public all the time to make art)

Some recent projects | Michael J Donovan
I've been recently learning about Linked Open Data. How incredibly exciting it is that so many datasets are connected together. I immediately thought of how the Art Institute of Chicago recently redid their catalog, so I was curious if this revamp made the online collection into a LOD format dataset. I found your blog post here by doing a Google search.

Does the Art Institute have their online catalog as Linked Open Data? Or maybe it's in the roadmap? (Side note: I've always loved the Art Institute's online catalog. I blogged about it a number of times

The Ramblings of a Chicagoan: Since March....
I've been lacking in posts on my blog too. I think part of it is wanting to write complete blog posts. Often times I need to get the images off my phone and into my post, but I don't have the time to connect all the images, so I let the blog post sit in drafts in my Evernote.

I don't like the idea of my RSS feed publishing posts without an image. If I got back two days later and update the image, most people's RSS readers won't catch that update, because it already pulled the article as soon as I published it. I'm thinking about customizing my RSS feed to update only once a week. However, I might be over thinking it.

Some days I think my blog might be better off as a wiki. Just a constantly updated website. Wikis are much more organized. And it might force me to organize my thoughts more. But then I would get into the trap of overthinking, instead of just writing and posting. So then I'm left stuck with unpublished posts.

Ladies and gentlemen: This is Magnatype! – L.T. Hanlon
The smaller typeface is a bit like the internet in the late 90s, early 00s. The body text was set really small. Nowadays, the trend seems to be to use much larger font size for body text. The Mangatype would be very fitting for today's online readers.

The Ramblings of a Chicagoan: 99% Invisible and An Episode on Sand
Instead of "Built on Sand", I felt like this episode should been called "Built on Concrete." Very interesting nonetheless.

2019 Baseball Hall of Fame Rookie Card Details and Gallery
Excellent point about how few rookie cards exist for this year's HOF class. I hope you continue to make a blog post like this every year. It's great seeing these cards collected together.

Guinea pig snacks for everyone! – L.T. Hanlon
Oh yes, that ole trick of eating the rat. Dangling it down by your mouth, but the camera angle is conveniently shot from the side, so the actor could just drop it down on the side of his/her head. I was in third grade at the time of this miniseries, and I remember everyone doing that trick in the lunchroom.

Maybe five or six years ago, I watched V again too. It was enjoyable to watch.

Learning one new foreign language word every day for a year - Spudart
The only thing with Ewokese is that Google Translate doesn't include it in their languages. I don't know why not. I mean, it's a rad language. I need to find some place to get audio recordings of Ewokese. I guess the Star Wars films. But that's too much work to try to clip out a word from that. Although, that might be kinda fun. Clip out every. single. Ewokese. word. spoken. in. the. movie. And then repeat each word over and over and over in an audio file. Each audio file has just one Ewokese word. That would be a fun collection of audio files. It could be a collection of podcast episodes. "Learn to speak Ewokese" BAM. That's fun.

Sign of spring 2019: state flags return to Aon Center - Spudart
When using the plural of chrysalis, you can use either chrysalises or chrysalides. I choose chrysalides because it sounds more official.

Oak Park’s Tile Stop Signs – Susie Trexler
I lived in Oak Park for a few years and have seen these tiles from time to time. Sometimes you see just a couple of the letters, like a S T. At first glance, I thought it was a street sign. (for ST being an abbreviation for street). Now I wished I photographed them whenever I saw ’em.

How valuable is this typewriter? – L.T. Hanlon
The unexpected juxtapositions from AI are so fascinating. One the hand it’s like a human comedian, created funny connections in life. On the other hand it’s like a… oh man. I forgot the other one. I had two in my head. Maybe some day AI will help me uncover what I was just thinking.
