I received my copy of Upstream Color yesterday. Upstream is the
long awaited (at least by me)
follow up to Shane Carruth's Primer (currently my favorite film). Amazon
shipped the preorder early, removing the last day of waiting (I've been waiting
to see it since I first heard about it, and was really disappointed when I
didn't get a ticket to it's premier in Chicago). Some other things got shipped,
too, but they're tangential to the story.

There's been a shift recently from the short, jittery thoughts provided by
social networks to longer thoughts. While Medium didn't
kick off this trend, it's helped bring the idea of writing longer pieces back to
more people than individual blogs have. And it's good.

Blogging software is an interesting topic to me, and while I've only used a
small number of the hordes of options on this site, I've tried out a whole lot
to see if I like what they have to offer. I've even attempted making my own, in
varying amounts of success (see the DKCMS
and fjord for examples, though, to be fair,
fjord is a fork of something else). While I don't know if I have much to add on
the topic, I at least have some thoughts on what makes it more likely for me to
use or not.
