Went to watch Whitehawk play Newhaven in a friendly this evening. Really odd having a ferry pull in right next to the ground!

Is anybody about in Brighton today or tomorrow? I'm free until like 4pm and I'd love to meet up with peeps :o

Literally every time we get an email from our daughter's school that says "see the attached file for details" there is never an attachment included. Not just once or twice but literally every email. Cracks me up.

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

“A study by the Demoskopika research institute in 2013 claimed the ’Ndrangheta made more money than Deutsche Bank and McDonald’s put together, with a turnover of €53bn (£44bn).” (link: gu.com/p/bzjya/stw) fucking hell!
