Something which might appeal to IndieWeb fans out there is my new blog, The Spicy Web! spicyweb.dev

It's focused on finding ways to learn and use the latest "vanilla" web technologies and the libraries/tools which align well with the open specs. So much has changed lately—especially with CSS—and I want to document some of the exciting goodies in store!

Since Mastodon is the elephant app, that makes all other social networks irrelephant.

Like tears in the rain...

Inside the eternal app. RIP Vangelis.

Obviously I can’t come to a final conclusion without seeing the final product in the flesh (assuming the rumors are true), but I’m far more impressed by the mockups of the iPhone 14 Pro's pill-and-hole-design than with the iPhone X-era notch.

This past weekend I celebrated **10 Years of Blogging**. 🎉

(Er, well, OK, I've actually "blogged" off-and-on for far longer than that. But my canonical jaredwhite.com archives go back ten years now. Ten!)

Anyone attending RailsConf in Portland this year? @jaredwhite will be in attendance, so if you'd like to chat about Bridgetown or anything Ruby or webdev-related in general, look him up! 👋

Hey folks, I'd excited to say that the website generator I work on, Bridgetown, is now on the ! Check it out @bridgetown 🔗

religion & seeking new spiritual practices 

My latest blog essay is out: A Post-Christian Spirituality

Where I've landed in my quest for a purposeful spiritual path after leaving the tenets of Evangelical doctrines behind.

Overall I’d have to rank Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness in the lower half of MCU productions to date, and nowhere near my Top 10.

I did enjoy watching it, but the problematic elements of the story took the entire experience down a notch.

I think it's OK to maintain some skepticism regarding new protocols proposed by bluesky, but to reject them outright because bluesky was a spin-off from Twitter seems unfair to me. Let's evaluate the technical ideas on their own merits, regardless of the real or perceived motivations of the originating parties.

Clean up the web!

A reminder that you, as a developer, can make a difference on the Web simply by choosing not to perpetuate people farming on your own sites and apps.

Every computer scientist should be able to see that cryptocurrencies are totally disfunctional payment systems, and that "blockchain technology" (including "smart constracts") is a technological fraud. Would they please say that out loud?

TIL that the formdata event is now supported in all major browsers: caniuse.com/mdn-api_htmlformel (h/t @jaredwhite )

This removes a major roadblock for the adoption of Web Components. Now custom form control components can participate in regular HTML <form>'s. For eg: this change allowed Shoelace.style to drop their custom <sl-form> element: shoelace.style/getting-started

Suddenly, Web Components have become a lot more reusable than React/Vue components - because they can now be used in any framework.

Sharing another photo from my recent travels - the #MilkyWay rising over the "brain rock" formations in the #WhitePocket area of Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. #Photography #NightSky #Landscape #MilkyWay (I am just getting started on #pixelfed so expect to be using that more soon!)

Just sent out the first issue (12th overall) of Creator Class newsletter using ConvertKit instead of Revue (which is owned by Twitter). The great part is I can use their API to pull in the content and host it on my own website! So no matter what happens in the future, my newsletters will forever live on my own domain. 👍
