Great to see Carlton Jumel Smith on the list of best soul on Bandcamp, May 2019 - https://
Burial is amazing!
Well this is news to me: Instagram had a dedicated app for direct messages, which they are now discontinuing? What are they, Google?
Great post, and yes, I remember moods. Never had it on my own blog, but I would oftentimes write what I had been listening too while writing the blog post.
So true, the irony (:
I was never a user, but it sounds like a great service. A real shame it's shutting down.
I'm wondering why they aren't open-sourcing it, that at least would remove the time constraint. If it's a really useful scholarly tool, then possibly some universities would like to use it/invest some resource in it? For the discovery aspect, federating it sounds like the best option. Each university could offer their instance to their users, and federate it with other universities/educational institutions.
I replaced the Nexus 7 with a Pixel C with the folio cover, which has been my favourite gadget ever, honestly. Versatile, portable, etc, but I don't think they make them anymore. If you can find a 2nd hand 64gb version, I recommend them though.
There are likely much cheaper and HW-wise more up to date Android tablets out there, but as I'm happy with the Pixel C for now, I haven't done any research, so not much help from me there I'm afraid (:
I sadly had to put one of the household's Nexus 7 to rest. Symptoms not entirely like yours, except for the eternal boot times. Mine ended up being so laggy it was impossible to use.
Scott Galloway looks back at his 2018 predictions, and makes his predictions for 2019.
Every time I watch these I'm thinking, that some business leaders out there are either saying "how does he know this", or taking notes on where to go next.
