Here we go, humans of planet Earth—we’re about to launch a pre-emptive strike on Mercury with @Messenger2011.

That’ll show ’em!

Halfway through reading an article, I genuinely forgot whether I was on Medium or The Pastry Box.

I’m grateful for my browser’s URL bar.

Faked potatoes—they taste like baked potatoes (with sour cream and chives) but they’re not baked.

On an overcrowded standing-room-only train, sitting in first class without a first class ticket …just like Liberty on the barricades.

If you consider that whistling is a means of attracting attention, then isn’t whistling at your desk the equivalent of shouting “HEY! YOU!”?

For Indiana Jones, it’s snakes.

For me, it’s chirpy whistlers.

Getting ready to speak at Bulgarian Web Summit 2015.

Dobro utro, Sofia!

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Sofia, I am in y…

Let me back up here and start by saying that Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria. Which is where I am now.

“Woah!”

“…!”

“Shall we watch it again?“

“Yeah!”

(I think you can guess which trailer @wordridden and I just watched.)

Neologism coined by @AllMarkedUp in today’s front-end pow-wow:

Modyfill

A polyfill for a feature that modernizr says isn’t supported.

It was faint, but I spotted the Dragon capsule whizzing across the sky.

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

If you missed that mind-blowing Dragon capsule flyover, your consolation prize is the ISS at 10:06pm …viewing conditions are perfect.

I’m feeling a little verklempt right now.

That was some Alastair Reynolds level space action.

I went from watching a live webcast of a spaceship launching from the American coast to stepping outside and seeing it fly overhead.

HOLY CRAP! DID YOU SEE THAT!!?

Four points of light—the Dragon’s just-deployed solar arrays—zooming overhead …a beautiful sight!

It is entirely possible that some people in the UK will see a space station, a Dragon capsule, and aurora tonight.

Solarstorm’s a-comin’.

That was a beautiful ISS flyover!

And now I know which trajectory to watch for the Dragon capsule in 20 minutes.

Getting the day’s one hundred words in under the wire with five minutes to spare.

Hey @AstroSamantha, your space station looked lovely and bright flying over my house just now.

See you again in ninety minutes!

T minus ten minutes to the first ISS flypast of the evening.

The past is still here—it’s just not evenly distributed.

Pausing “Better Call Saul” to go outside and watch a space station cross the sky.

The neighbour’s new motion-sensor light is troublesome.
