Hey, World!

The name riffs on the familiar "hello, world!" introduction to programming languages.

I really like the work they're doing over at Basecamp and I'm really interested in working on a project that could make use of the HTML/JS framework they introduced called Hotwire.

I Miss My Bar

What a great website. I toggled one setting and didn't think it worked very well but toggle a few together and it really gives you a feel for how it used to be to go to a bar. Even pre-pandemic, it's not something I got to do regularly but something I want to do more of once it's safe.

'Spy pixels in emails have become endemic'

I'm conflicted about this, I can fully understand why tracking pixels exist. I've been thinking about how best to track how many views my newsletter and RSS feeds get and using a pixel is the most obvious answer as part of my growing interest in analytics.

I am not interested at all as to when or how many times an individual interacts with a particular item, only the raw numbers. But I can appreciate how sceptical anyone would be if they knew it was there. They can only see their side of the pixel, not what I, or anyone else, might be doing on the other side.
