@ndw yr the first to know: we've got Stardog & ML integrated such that ML uses Stardog as an OWL reasoning black box. Just a POC but still.—@kendall
@kendall That’s hotness, man!—@ndw
@ndw We'll demo for MicahD on Thur if you want to join.—@kendall
@kendall Send me an invite. I’m in WG meetings in NYC this week, but I’ll join if I can—@ndw

Frustrated by lack of sync between Contacts and Google, I contemplate enabling CardDAV syncing. Predict dups and confusion, pain and anger.—@ndw
@ndw please do—@crichey
@ndw as an android and macbook user, i feel your pain. Let us know how it goes.—@pjkelly5
@pjkelly5 I backed up my Contacts first. I’ll report the results.—@ndw

Ok, CardDAV sync did an impressive job. I didn’t get the sea of spurious duplicates that I expected. We’ll see how it goes—@ndw
@ndw the obvious next steps are MusicDav, MovieDav, SocialDav and BookDav. /cc @jreschke —@mnot
@mnot Yep. Followed by FacebookDav, TwitterDav, etc. ad nauseum. *sigh*—@ndw
@mnot @ndw @jreschke i'm more of a PunkDav guy. But when http is done, you guys just go ahead.—@icing

Ok, at the risk of being identified as a hipster doofus, the “secret” entrance to PDT is sort of a hoot. And the cocktails are interesting.—@ndw

Documents, durable and re-usable over time, still matter. You should care. #XML PSA.—@alexmilowski

"my thing used to work and now it doesn't" is not a bug report, it's the human condition. Report it to the upstream Maintainer—@Pinboard

RT @argv0: fav = retweet for cowards—@kendall
@kendall I dunno. I publish all my favs, so I don’t think of it as cowardice. I RT infrequently on the assumption it’d be redundant.—@ndw
@ndw pretty sure it was a joke :)—@kendall
