That might sound silly today, in an era of centralized services (e.g. Facebook, Google) bombarding our inboxes, phones, and “feeds”. As privacy and security breaches make headlines, we clamor for a decentralized internet. But less than twenty years ago, the internet was decentralized, when the human cycle of individualism versus collectivism was perfectly aligned with divergent expression. We’ve now spent the past decade attempting to build the perfect centralized web, only to realize its many faults. The cycle continues.

It’s just one big cycle.

One of the features I use the most on my Apple Watch, is to make my iPhone ping so I can find it.

However, 99% of the time it’s right next to me. Just like 5 minutes ago, when I was sat on it.

I finally bit the (very small) bullet and did a minuscule amount of editing to my blog’s theme, to make publishing from Ulysses much simpler.

I used to specify source urls for linked articles with a custom field named “external_link”. Previously this was fine, because I’d publish via Workflow on iOS, so I could specify this perfectly fine. However, although Ulysses have a section to add a title link, it will add it to a custom field named “linked_list_url”.

For a while, I’ve just been using the action to open the Editor, pasting the link in the web interface, and hitting publish. But I’ve now slightly modified my the code to search for either value, and use whichever is there.

In the grand scheme of things, it’s nothing. But it now means I can do all my blogging inside Ulysses. Of course not including editing posts, but I rarely do that anyway.

I’ve finally ordered an adapter, so my Apple Keyboard II should have its first use (by me) very soon!
