Went to Jang Mo Jib on Robson for lunch. Had Gahl Bee Tahng with all the fixings. It’s a nice second floor space!

Cocktail orange for breakfast. Also known as a mandelo, for “Mandarin + Pomelo”.
All citrus are actually hybrids of mandarin, pomelo, and citron (chart via Wikipedia).
I collected some links on the FoodWiki and learned about the UC Citrus Experiment Station.
Some fun packaging at the Sungiven Foods at City Square. Sungiven is pretty great, with stores all over Metro Vancouver.
Photos are of Soda crackers (sea salt) aka shark edition, and (chive) aka caveman and dinosaur buddy.
I didn’t buy candied olives, but I did buy candied plums.

Went to the new Oidé Coffee location at the Waterfall Building near Granville Island.
Black sesame pastry is very tasty!

Dragon fruit for breakfast. Bought it at the Sungiven when I went to City Square Centre for Nine Dumplings yesterday.
I’m wandering around #Vancouver today.
If anyone is around in the next couple of hours, I’m going to go for lunch at Nine Dumplings.
I’ve been told it’s now in the City Square Centre food court.
I guess I’ll tag this a #FediMeetup
After several months of tinkering with Cloudron, the server management system you install on your own Ubuntu server for self hosting apps, I put together some notes on it, including total costs and a description about apps / types of services it can provide.
I added Rio Friendly Meats, a butcher at 2477 E Hastings in #EastVan, to #OpenStreetMap via Organic Maps.
Learning that Apple Maps has guides (collections of places) and ability to contribute photos to places (I don’t really ever use it).
Organic Maps has bookmarks which can be organized into lists.
Here’s Bloedel Conservatory, a classic #Vancouver destination for me when it rains for weeks.
I think the future is divergent mutual incomprehension and that’s good.
Part of a post by Venkatesh Rao @vgr on Farcaster. He wrote Divergentism which goes into more detail.
Installed linkding shared bookmarking on the #CommonsComputer
As written up in the link, I’m still working out how to describe these shared services.
I have an OpenCollective for #ToolsForThoughtRocks but want to set things up that people can join the commons generally.
I’m on Bowen Island for the holidays visiting my parents, so here are pictures from our usual Killarney Lake walk. Views East and West from the Meadow Bridge.
Tinkering with Organic Maps, realizing I only have one bookmark in it: Mirika, a cafe in Berlin with great coffee, pastries, and classic German hot lunches.
Organic Maps is no-charge, open source offline maps based on OpenStreetMap.
RSS and Mastodon could fit in the same app…I’d start with the social media experience: the single timeline of posts. Very simple sidebar. No article view. No read/unread status — just position in the timeline.
Did you know that Skipper Otto community supported fishery has multiple #EastVan community pick up spots?
I’m picking up my last order of the season at the Off the Rail Brewing spot on Adanac off Clark: conveniently just a couple of blocks from my house.
I made lasagna yesterday. Like most of my cooking, I just sort of winged it.
I did buy some ingredients earlier in the week, including Italpasta Oven Ready Lasagna Noodles.
Here’s the package recipe, also on FoodWiki along with notes on my own recipe.
Most productivity advice is BS…The only productivity advice that matters is getting clarity on what matters to you. You just feel differently about the world when you know what you care about.
Sari Azout continues with questions on getting to clarity on this
The next version of Wiki.js sounds like it could be a pretty good Gitbook replacement.
And yes, it’s a Cloudron app of course ;)
Inventing the future with Doruk (mostly him)
I am attending IPFS Connect in Istanbul!
And also testing the Sparkles micropub client posting to MicroDotBlog, which has an RSVP type.
That’s what social media did for people. We could click on a reply button, and in the same place we were reading, address a response specifically to that person, creating a thread. A conversation. There’s basically no way to do that in blogs or using RSS”

Spooky Postcard Show at Tangible Interaction /Ironworks Building. Rachael made some paper cut spooky eyeballs to put in the show.
Mah Milk Bar on Victoria Drive is now open:

Tasty coffee & chai!
“All the Little Fires”, a painting by Leanne Romak currently at the Hearth Gallery on Bowen Island.
The description is by her uncle of how moonshine got made in 1940s Manitoba.
Put (sugar) in a barrel with yeast and water. Add some barley, wheat, potatoes. Not in the house because the police come check. Put it in the bush.
