I have the same issue on https://thesession.org

Hopefully the audioSession API will fix this:

I’m talking about phrases, rather than names: single-page apps; large language models; client-side rendering; non-fungible tokens.

Just regular adjectives and nouns. No title case required, or deserved.

Eight years ago today I published the first of 100 posts where I’d write exactly 100 words every day:

It was fun!

I should do it again sometime.

Techbros seem to love spelling their half-baked creations with capital letters to make them seem important.

It’s a small act of resistance, but I write them as regular words. The added readability is a nice bonus.

A group of musicians gathered round a pub table playing concertinas, fiddle, whistle and mandolin.

Post St. Patrick’s Day recovery session 🎻🎶☘️

But no sessions.

(Which is a shame—it’s right ’round the corner from me)

A row of fiddlers and one guitarist. One fiddler playing, another listening.

Fourth session ☘️🎶🎻🎻🎻

Two whistle players playing around a round table with a bright red tablecloth covered with drinks and instruments. Two women fiddle players listening to tunes in a pub.

Third session ☘️🎶

A banjo player and two fiddle players gathered round a pub table. One of the fiddlers is taking a swig of Guinness while the others play.

Second session ☘️🎶🎻

A group of musicians gathered round a table festooned with pints of Guinness. Guitar, fiddles, banjo, concertina and bones.

First session of the day ☘️🎶

Here’s how the St. Patrick’s Day sessions are shaping up in Brighton:

  • 2:30-4:30 The Fiddler’s Elbow
  • 4-6 The Bugle
  • 5-7 The Lord Nelson
  • 6-8 The Dover Castle
  • 8-10 The Jolly Brewer
  • 10-? ???

I’m off to play a rake of tunes…

I presume that “ChatGPT” isn’t supposed to be said as one word—“chatgipit”—but rather the capital letters should be spelled out.

So it’s pronounced “See Hat Jee Pee Tee.”

Happy birthday to Information Management: A Proposal by Tim Berners-Lee

An indoor market under a futuristic curved roof with skylights. If feels cathedral-like. A rain-slicked paved street betweeen buildings, one of which is a Romanesque church. Three four-storey buildings in a row with so many repeating window panes it's like a geometric pattern. The middle building is particularly ornate. Waves batter a headland that supports a lone lighthouse under a cloudy sky.

Exploring A Coruña.

Sunset over a sandy beach with buildings on one side and waves on the other. A dramatic grey sky above a beach with crashing waves. Rocks and waves of turquoise water. Buildings overlooking the rocks and waves under a dramatic cloudy sky.

Strolling along the beach in A Coruña.

Social networks like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter that present a so-called algorithmic feed are really providing little more than continuous partial shadowbanning.
