I made a playlist for work today and kinda love it. Thought I should share.
I love ‘Royal Blood.’ They are one of my favorite rock bands. I have been waiting for new music since their first album, and this song does not disappoint:
If you haven’t listened to the first Royal Blood album, and you like rock/alternative music, you should listen:
I was a part of the speaker panel at the end of WordCamp San Antonio, which was pretty cool! There’s a lot of really amazing WordPress folks in San Antonio and it was cool to share the stage with these fine folks. I don’t talk a whole lot but I share the stage with my fellow colleagues Zach and Claudia from Pressable, as well as notable speakers. It was a lot of fun!
Video comes from WordPress.tv which has a ton of great WordCamp talks. I highly recommend it for folks learning WordPress.
I love how the animation is getting an update, according to the single page they’ve posted on the web site. Hopefully Damon Albarn will tour with the new album and I will get to see him again (I’ve seen Gorillaz three times, but I’ve never seen Blur. 😦 ).
Well I feel old, but ‘Original Pirate Material’ is about to be 15 years old (as of March 25th). The album ages pretty well. I never got to see Mike Skinner live, alas.
We’ve added a new media section to your WordPress.com dashboard, allowing you to bulk upload, edit, and tweak your media files. Let’s look at the changes:
Upload Media in Bulk
Add new items in bulk by going to Media → Add New to activate the file picker. You can also drag and drop items right onto the page.
Now you can edit media files as you add them to your post or directly from the media section. To modify media information like the title or caption, select the items you would like to edit, then click Edit.
In the details view, you can update the title, caption, and description. Any changes made in these fields will be saved automatically for you.
If you have a photo that needs to be cropped or rotated you can now update this here, too! From the media detail view…

New Jetpack update! Lots of cool fixes. Update all the things!
Welcome to Jetpack 4.7, available now for upgrade or installation.
After a few releases chock-full of new features (like Google Analytics and Ads) we decided to focus an entire release cycle on some cleanup, enhancements, and bug fixes. An early Spring-cleaning if you will, getting us ready for some even more exciting feature announcements later in the year.

The code that powers Get.blog is now open sourced!
We’re happy to announce that we’ve open-sourced two projects last week: Delphin and its sibling, Delphin Bootstrap. Delphin powers get.blog, a site we built for a smooth registration of .blog domains. Delphin Bootstrap is a portable development environment for Delphin — it makes getting Delphin up and running easy on any operating system.
One of Delphin’s main goals was to simplify the process of registering and managing a domain. We’ve focused on the user experience, trying to avoid as much industry jargon as possible, while keeping in mind that purchasing a domain is just the first step in the journey toward a larger goal, like telling a story or selling products.
