iCloud is badgering me about paying for more storage, I barely use Facebook and Instagram, and I’m very aware of how much stuff I’ve historically given/trusted a lot of third parties with. You should expect to see more photos on my site imminently – Own Your Data and all that. I might even document how it goes. I expect it to be a slow process – lots of sources, largely thankless, a mixture of what I want to be public and private.
I have removed analytics from my personal site. The numbers provide no value to me. Nothing they tell me is going to make me change the way I do stuff here, so why feed into the global shitshow that is needless counting and tracking?

I’ve only gone and redesigned the shit-heap I call ‘my blog’. Well, I say ‘redesigned’, it was more a case of porting it to WordPress and butchering the twentyeleven theme into a Piet Mondrian-inspired mess (more on that in a future post).
The reasoning for this is pretty simple: the majority of my full-time job is spent working with WordPress. I love the WP-ecosystem, and would really like to contribute my own plugins / themes etc, but find that hard to do when I’m only 9-5ing it.
I still use Python and Django in my spare time a lot – I plan to write up a bit more about my Google App Engine Project pretty soon, and am actively porting another from GAE back to Django (the new pricing model has scared me shitless, I expect it’ll be more of a prototyping platform from here on in). So no need to fret there. Not that you were fretting. Obviously.
