About the Blog
This blog is written for the most part in Markdown, using the excellent Drafts app, and reaches Blogger by means convoluted and various. It owes not just its principal syntax to John Gruber, but also at least part of its style, as the blog is heavily influenced by his site Daring Fireball, both in a minimalist design sensibility, (at least such as I can twist Blogger into), and the way in which certain things are posted and presented.
The long form pieces take their heavy use of links from the MacOS reviews of John Siracusa and on occasion that I’m feeling like complaining of something I hope to draw some spirit of ire from the Hypercritical Podcast.
Speaking of style I hope any reviews reflect an appreciation of the work of Jay Rayner.
The use of verbose image captions is strongly influenced by the Technoccult News.
Merlin Mann’s podcast creation philosophy is the reason the blog launched with posts already present, hopefully to its benefit.
