This just in from a friend who is not a land lubber like myself ..

The boats are huddled in the corner because the wind is meant to swing around to the east.

I knew it was going to be weather oriented, and I do see huddles in the bay from time to time - but on the other side - this side seemed unusual.

Many of Trump’s most ardent fans and foes alike believe he is the leader of a political movement with a clear and defined set of principles and goals. They disagree only on whether that agenda is good or bad.

@JoshNicholas I have been in and out of New Zealand as a resident for 5 years - and only just realized today that the three prongs used here are 'upside down' . at least from the perspective of the UK - and looking at the chart of @odd ... other than UK - all other three prongs are that way - and yet - to solve for the problem of which you speak - one at top, two at bottom is surely the most stable ...

@MitchW and some of the 'advanced extensibility' does not require coding skills.

WHILE

The term 'no code' is not used on the Micro Blog web site

AND

I know Micro Blog is not a 'No Code' story

IT IS TRUE THAT

When Marc B declared 'an end to software' in 1999 - we all know that wasn’t quite right - and didn’t .... and yet somehow it stuck.

@MitchW ... all of that is right - and makes for a great story - marketing's job is to distil into many headlines, messages and stories with a variety of audiences (that might give a damn) in mind.

This is not that line ...

@pratik ummm .. wow. They clearly need help in basic 'old style' management principles - and that would be just to start.

we talked about values, work cultures, and other immutable aspects that I wasn’t willing to compromise regardless of what happened next.

... is the bit I would reiterate - and add in the advice to 'be proactive'.

Good luck.

@MitchW Mastodon and Bluesky aren’t blogging platforms.

This is the challenge that @Manton has.

Microblog is never going to be as good as any point solution in its portfolio of features, but it is the only one that does it all …

Knowingly or not, Manton has done exactly what Chris Lockhead says should be done … don’t be number 2 and let someone else define your category, define your own category and be number one.

So what is the category that @manton has defined?

Well that is why you need Marketing .. a discipline that does not seem to be well understood in these halls .. which is why maybe it is so often laughed at, which in turn might just have a connection to why the world only seems to talk about Wordpress, Twitter, Threads, Mastodon, Bluesky ….

@JoshNicholas judging by what @odd shared .. Oz is same as New Zealand and I do find that the angles help .. because if you are like us there are two pronged plugs that can be used, but that angle helps.

Also adapters, they but a real weight and challenge on any .. so I tend to use a cable to connect the socket to where the adaption is occurring. Too late now .. and definitely not a compact solution .. the other is plain in computer daisy chain out form USBC.
