What Am I Focused on Now?
Hobby projects continue. However, I have not been able to roll out any substantial updates to Micro.Threads. Some priority (and forced) assignments at work, some commitments at home. It was enough to make this a not so productive week.
Having said that, it was a good week from what I could end up publishing. I finally managed to publish my thought on publishing on open web. Another interesting read from last week made me long for the simpler days when communities mattered, social contact was important. So I am not complaining.
On My Mind This Week
