Today I learned…

Volume 7, Issue 1; 05 Jan 2023

Short (usually) tech-related posts.

Inspired by Tom Morris, and transitively by Simon Willison, I’m going to try my hand at writing some “today I learned” posts. I’m informed (by Tom) that these are fashionable. I get to be fashionable! That’ll be a different.

The idea appeals to me. I try to take notes (in Emacs, with Org-roam) of this sort for myself. I’m not going to promise to dig through my archives and publish them all, but going forward, I’ll try to remember to share them.

If I publish them, maybe they help someone else.

Share and enjoy!

P.S. Happy New Year, but this is not any sort of resolution!
