I set up a Planet Mozilla twitter feed a while back that does nothing more complicated than twitter every time a new post hits Planet. Having been following it for a while, I find that I have a more comprehensive and up-to-date ambient awareness of what’s going on around the project. Where I used to have to take the time to look at and read through a long list of feeds in my feed reader, I now just get quick infoblips through the twitter feed. I like it quite a bit, and it seems to be working well. You can follow it here, if you’re interested:
Ever miss an issue of the about:mozilla newsletter and find yourself cursing my name because you couldn’t find the archives? Curse no more! I finally dug around the Mailchimp knowledge base and figured out how to auto-generate a full list of every issue of about:mozilla ever published.
I’ve added the archives to the about:mozilla weblog, on their very own Newsletters archives page. The blog itself hasn’t been in use for quite some time, but I’m re-evaluating that now and there will likely be activity there again soon.
[05:50:32] <dria> i’m facing sunrise right in the _face_
[05:50:45] <dria> the question stands: make coffee, or hope to catch an hour of zzs?
[05:51:55] <phik> hah
[05:52:02] <phik> I just had my coworker shut the blinds
[05:52:07] <phik> because every night, the sunset blinds me
[05:52:17] <phik> THAT IS THE SAME SUN!
My friend phil lives on pretty much the opposite side of the planet. I talk to him a lot more (like daily) than I speak to most people who live in the same city. This is one of the reasons I really love the internet.
Update: I made coffee.
