Link Dump #2

After my first link dump, I thought it would take me time to build up another list. Boy was I wrong. Even after pruning almost 100 links I acquired while going down a Gamestop, Robinhood, Crypto, Dogecoin rabbit hole I still have a crapload, so here goes.

Typefully – Easily compose long form content for Twitter.

Twizzle – I’m use it now and find it to be a perfect match for my new Twitter aversion.

Chirr App – Twitter threads.

A Beginner’s Garden of Chess Openings – You know it’s good because the website has no CSS or Javascript.

Chess Tactics – An online book of sorts.

Chess Tempo – Online Chess Training.

On Learning Chess as an Adult – Tip: Don’t.

Most Recommended Books – In case your friends and family have terrible taste.

Bitcoin Explained – This was pretty funny.

What the first Bitcoin transaction was probably like – the pizza was real, the conversation maybe not.

BitPay – I have no idea why I saved this, but I think they focus on helping businesses accept Bitcoin which I’m all for!

Link Dump #1

Throughout my 20+ career in tech I have bookmarked a lot of webpages. Like… a lot. As with many bookmark addicts I struggle to manage those bookmarks and make use of them. For a time period I was a happy del.icio.us user, but all good Internet things must pass (or die) and so I was thrust back into the open arms of local bookmark management.

Time passed, and I amassed another giant list of “webpages I will never visit again but think are cool”. I burned that to the ground, and then promptly started making another one. Rinse, repeat.

So here’s my new attempt to make “use of” these bookmarks, without hoarding them to die another day, or pissing them away into the river of ephemeral content that is social media.

Runaroo – A search engine.

BetaFPV – Tiny first person flying drones.

Jacon O’Neal – Cool visualizations.

Million Short – Another search engine, with a twist.

Lichess.org – Free online chess.

Hemingway Editor – Simplify your writing.

Garfield Minus Garfield – The title says it all.
