Daily Reads Moved to Twine

without comments

I’m now able to find my way around Twine, still stumbling, but oriented enough that I’m moving my daily reads. You can find them at:
www.twine.com/user/astevens

Twine makes it easy to save a bookmark, image or video. It organize these, along with comments around interests.
But it’s biggest feature is that it makes it easy to share them with other people who share similar interests. Nova Spivak, the founder calls it an “interest network”. It’s at an early stage, but I still find it an intellectually stimulating refuge from the over-hyped and attention-draining worlds of Twitter and Facebook.

Into the Cloud: PHP Anywhere

without comments

I’ve been distracted from my project to move my laptop apps onto web-based “cloud” services, but I’ve managed to progress on one front.

I discovered phpanywhere  a web based IDE for the PHP language. It includes a real-time syntax-aware editor and FTP access to files.

One of the things I’ve been most concerned about is how to replace PHP Eclipse. This has the possibility of doing that.
