Replied to Thoughts on Netflix by Steve P Brady

I think 3 seasons is probably the sweet spot as far as story telling goes. I’d much prefer 10 exciting and original 3 season shows to 5 bloated shows that just keep chruning out episodes derivative of their own past. Am I wrong?

I agree with this. I think this golden age of television that we are in is only helped by killing shows before they lose what makes them special. Netflix’ own Stranger Things is a great example of this. The first season was amazing, the second one really good, while the third one really feels like it’s time to wrap things up.

Another example of a show that ran way too long is Orange is the New Black. Amazing for a couple of seasons and then it just fell apart. IMHO, off course.

LiveVideoTech.today seems like an interesting place. I should check it out properly when I start getting back into work mode in a couple of weeks.

I’ve been using Drafts for a really long time now but every now and then I click/tap something I haven’t clicked/tapped before and I realise I use maybe 10% of the apps capability.

I feel a real shortage of microcasts in my podcast queue at the moment, so I’m glad Manton published a new episode of Timetable this week.

Does anyone have any recommendations of other microcasts?

Watched Devs

Linn and I finished watching Devs last night and I’m currently listening to The Incomparable’s discussion of it. I need to think about this one and write more but as a whole I thought it was a very interesting premise that failed in the execution. And it was waaaaaaay too long. A two hour movie, or even a Black Mirror episode, would have been enough.

Replied to PESOS from Instagram? by Jeremy CherfasJeremy Cherfas

At last night’s online HWC we talked a bit about getting pictures in and out of Instagram, now that they have become so much stricter about the API. Getting images into Instagram except through approved apps seems to be getting harder and harder, and is probably impossible by now. Getting images out…

I haven’t used Instagram for a long time but for the last couple of weeks I’ve been trying to convince my fiancé to at least PESOS her Instagram posts to her old, inactive blog. This looks like a way that might be done. Thanks, Jeremy!

My wishlist for Micro.Blog:
* a way to load new posts but keep my place in the timeline. Every morning I have endless scrolling to see what folks posted overnight.
* default to the aspect ratio of an included photo, not to square.
* let the Mac app upload videos and sound files.

I agree with this, particularly the first one.
