Digest for September 2017


This month I advised people of a well-known but oft-forgotten trick to avoid spam to your GMail account by using a plus-sign and some arbitrary text (or the name of the company you’re dealing with) in your email address, and shared with minimal interpretation a web app I’d developed: fnorders.com. I also made my first attempt to publicly call out the library of the Bilkent University for ripping off the design of the website of the Bodleian Libraries.

I shared posts promoting the upcoming GDPR, discussing the popular (mis-)use of the .cat TLD and the side-effects of that, and a poem for which git was both the medium and the message.
