Measuring a blog's success: focus on conversations, not page views
I’ve been writing this blog now for a little over 4 years. I’ve found it to be a really rewarding and fun thing to do – more people than I can count have told me that this blog has helped them, lots of you have helped me figure things out, and just the act of writing down confusing things has...

post from 🎧 This Week in the IndieWeb Audio Edition
Just as with the Domain of One’s Own, the #IndieWeb is as much a mindset, an approach to a more open and democratic web, as it is about the tools. Marty McGuire’s weekly take on the IndieWeb News is a great way to stay abreast of this evolving space. A regular mix of interviews, events, posts and wiki updates is...

Marty and Jonathan are back! This week, with their friend Kristen, they talk about a movie that never had a sequel, Earth Girls are Easy. Why has this masterpiece never been touched since the 80s? What would a sequel look like? How sexy is Jeff Goldblum?

Black Panther: the Return of the Future

“Critical theorists and political pundits and war historians and economists are right now making a pretty penny writing books about the impossibility of imagining the future. If you trace all history as Western history there are dead ends everywhere you look — and for too long the advances of science and engineering has been tied to a Western, Eurocentric vision — a vision that ends in climate change, water shortages, late stage capitalism, or a last ditch attempt to get off the planet. Of course the future is impossible to imagine if it is exclusionary and of course we can’t solve our problems with the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

One note: this line appears to be flipped:

$ php artisan generate:key

What worked for me was:
