52 tabs! I've forgotten how to count that low. 
Right now, I have 52 brower tabs open. Behold the madness above! (The tabs are off to the far right; it only shows the top 21.) It’s kind of nuts. Why do I work like this? Is there any good r…

"""For a whole bunch of reasons I've found myself thinking about the International Image Interoperability Framework which is often just referred to as IIIF, lately. If you've never heard of IIIF it is a standard developed principally by the library and archives community with three principal areas of interest : Images, publications and search.

The first (images) is a standardized URI-based syntax for common operations around image manipulation. The second (publications) is a declarative syntax for essentially defining learning modules around the idea of the slideshow. The third (search) always seems to stray quickly in to territory labeled metadata which... well, is not my jam but neither is it my party so I just try to maintain a healthy distance.

The IIIF Image API is the thing that's been coming up a lot in a variety of museum-related conversations. Images, and more generally digital assets, have been a bit an albatross around the neck of the cultural heritage sector for... basically, forever. The problem has been made worse year over year as museums embark on ever more ambitious digitization projects that lend themselves to ever more sophisticated tools without really bothering to distinguish the layers of concern (storage, search, processing and delivery) or the mechanics, and more importantly the economics, of how they all fit together."""

This blog post from 2011 is on my mind.
I'm wondering if it's time to write an update.
Have we learned anything new in the last 5 years that changes, detracts from or adds to what I wrote?
At last night's OSJam I gave a lightning talk about the implications of being post-PC. Those implications were: Identity : a post-PC de...

That people prefer the all in one mobile supercomputer instead of a constellation of devices connected by a PAN. Wearables to me look like a niche and I think the only thing that might disrupt that are in-ear or on-face devices. But we know from Glass that an onface AR device has to be revolutionary, as in look completely inconspicuous.

"""Firefox OS 2.6 would be the last release from Mozilla.

Today we are announcing the next phase in that evolution. While work at Mozilla on Firefox OS has ceased, we very much need to continue to evolve the underlying code that comprises Gecko, our web platform engine, as part of the ongoing development of Firefox. In order to evolve quickly and enable substantial new architectural changes in Gecko, Mozilla’s Platform Engineering organization needs to remove all B2G-related code from mozilla-central. This certainly has consequences for B2G OS. For the community to continue working on B2G OS they will have to maintain a code base that includes a full version of Gecko, so will need to fork Gecko and proceed with development on their own, separate branch."""

Sad but inevitable.

Charismatic megaflora? What kind of a tree might that be? As with many things, one person's charismatic megaflora is another person's tree. For myself, a tree that would draw and hold my attention as a younger person/student is very different than my current definition of a charismatic tree.

I was told some spindly cypress trees in the Everglades are 600 years old. Kind of a crazy thought when one does a size comparison with trees I've visited in the Oregon Cascades.

Bing started testing this in May -> Bing App joins the AMP open-source effort. No impact on rankings (like Google) #seo 
From the start, the Bing App (voted #5 of top 100 iPhone apps of 2016 by PC Magazine) has been designed to help you “find” and “do” faster, wherever the information is needed. With best-in-class news search and browse experiences, the Bing app helps you search for the latest news topics, accessible on the Bing homepage, on the search results page, and on the news vertical…

AMP is awesome. I am glad to see it growing so fast with participation from the open-source community.

http://redecentralize.org/conf2015/2016/09/07/13-ten-years-of-standards-failure.html is a heart-breaking journey through some of my favourite failures:
RDF/FOAF
EmotionML
RSS -> Atom -> ActivityStreams
XRIs
XMPP
OpenID
OAuth
OpenID 2.0
OpenSocial
PubSubHubbub/Salmon
OpenGraph (HTML for Facebook)
ActivityStreams 2.0 (W3C Social)
Blockchains

In hindsight it's easier to see why and how we went wrong but it's not obvious what should we do differently in the future.

I think one of the main reasons standards fail is when they get too far ahead of practice. Good standards standardize existing practice, rather than trying to shackle future implementations.

Story
Tagline
A chaotic neutral point of view
Introduction
I make things (code/photos/words) and wave my arms around a lot when I talk.

I'm a Developer Advocate at Google.

I'm also the co-author of O'Reilly's "Apprenticeship Patterns: Guidance for the aspiring software craftsman" and you can find out more about that book here: http://www.oshineye.com/books.html

I'm also part of the small team behind http://developerexperience.org/ which is an attempt to see if we can successfully apply the techniques of user experience professionals to products and tools for developers. We call it Developer Experience or #devexp for short.

I believe that identity, like truth, is performed rather than expressed so here are some links that may help you understand who I am and what I do:
I help run a handful of Google+ Pages:
I participate in a handful of public Google+ Communities:
There are others but they're either private or delightfully obscure.

You can see recordings of various talks/presentations I've given: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4029784577E43D1E and you can read about the tools I use: http://adewale.oshineye.usesthis.com/

This is a cosy little cafe in a quiet neighbourhood but it makes the best crepes and galettes in Zurich.

Located on the lake so it's great for having lunch whilst enjoying the sunshine at one of the tables outside. The food is excellent.

Reasonably priced, decent breakfast and just far enough from the tourist areas to be peaceful at night.

Excellent restaurant located on a quiet side street. They specialise in seafood but even their meat dishes are superb. It's growing in popularity so make sure you book a table in advance.
