I’ve been playing around with a new kind of blog post for a few months now. I’m calling them updates, and they are short bits and photos that aren’t complete ideas. They’re the type of thing that end up on social media sites, but as I’ve always had a healthy distrust of social media I wanted to host them on our blog where they wouldn’t be subject to the changing winds of the social middlemen and their quest to mine our data.
Updates are in a separate category, so they don’t end up with the regular blog posts in the archives.
