This video's title tells you how many views it has

Nice bit of wizardry here from Tom Scott, he's using YouTube's APIs to periodically update the title to reflect the number of views it has.

As Web 2.0 surfaced, I was just starting out in web development. Public APIs were just starting to get going and progressive enhancements were all the rage. It's sad that a lot of services, or the original incarnation, no longer exists. And I find the current state of the web pretty annoying as progressively enhancing something would probably reduce the weight of a lot of websites down to a fraction of what they currently are.

Imaginary Pie from Hook

This was a really fun video to watch, but Hook just happened to be a topic on the Paul F. Tompkins episode of the Off Menu Podcast where they discussed if Hook had stood the test of time. We watched (most of it) recently. Much darker than I remember, but still such a great film for me.

How the Air Max 90 changed the sneaker world

Complex released a new episode of Sole Origins, mostly re-cut from old videos from the series, covering the Air Max 90 which has now been around for 30 years. I've owned a couple of pairs and they are very comfortable. Oddly, the Air Max 1 silhouette is actually my favourite and yet I've never owned a pair of those.

Over the past few years, we've read a few books by Oliver Jeffers, they're great stories and beautifully illustrated. Looking forward to watching this with the kids when it's available in a couple of weeks.

AirBag for AirPods

I've got a lot of catching up to do today, but it so far looks like not many people are interested in April Fool's day jokes today. Twelve South with the first one of any kind I've seen today with an actual product. Albeit only available in a limited quantity (689 at the time of writing)

Price: $49.99
