On the app store debate

Published on in ✍️ Posts

In the current debate (which has been going on for a while) about allowing alternative app stores on mobile devices, I honestly don’t understand at all the position that being able to use an alternative store would compromise security.

"The totalitarians of the attention economy"

Published on in 🔗 Links

I mean. Fuck. Is that really what we’ve been reduced to? A set of eyeballs (or earballs??) to be squeezed until every last tear of attention is drained. The image of human batteries powering the simulation is barely a metaphor at this point.

Just a small comparison to show that many websites are completely obese: My bachelor thesis in PDF format (which I handed in yesterday) has a size of 1.4 MB. It contains several images and 85 pages of text. With a high information density, this is a much smaller size than most websites have. And it would have been probably also possible to compress or optimize the PDF further.

Although Micropublish is an awesome Micropub editor, I just integrated a custom really basic editor into GoBlog to create, update and delete posts. I will also add image upload soon and then I don’t depend on any external software (except a web browser) for my blogging workflow any more.

Things I noticed and a thank you!

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Since migrating my blog to the new CMS, I carefully watch the BunnyCDN logs to see if there are some errors or 404s somewhere. It’s looking good so far. Two days ago, I found an issue with the routing of paths that included an encoded character (such as ü or ä), but I found an easy workaround for this. Another thing I noticed by looking at the logs is the number of requests to the feeds on this website.
