Get.blog Goes Open Source

The code that powers Get.blog is now open sourced!

Developer Resources

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.

Delphin is a web application that uses parts of the WordPress.com API, as well as a few more specific endpoints built on the new WordPress REST API. Like Calypso — the WordPress.com front end — it…

Roger Simon from Politico retires

Wow….I didn’t know Roger Simon was retiring! That makes me sad, but glad he gets to relax and enjoy life.

He was an awesome columnist to read. His ‘simon says‘ series on politico.com was one of my favorites. I recommend going back and reading some of his 2016 campaign pieces. I suspect Mr. Simon will be signing the “I told you so” song within the next few months.

Here is his retirement article: ‘A Majority of One Walks Away.

Roger Simon was also pretty amazing on TV. Here is Roger Simon on CNN talking about the government shutdown a few years ago:

Intelligence Report on Russian Hacking

I see people sharing their opinions on the Russian Hacking events, but they haven’t read the intelligence report yet. Did you know it’s online? You can take responsibility for yourself and actually read it here. It’s an interesting read.

Donald Trump didn’t seem to take away from it the way a decent human being should, and he had more information. It’s pretty stunning to me that we just electing someone who is prepared to sell out our own intelligence community (and prob our military soon enough) in order to side with our greatest rival. Stunning.

I feel like I am living in an alternative universe.

Last #BurritoFriday of 2016

Today is the last Burrito Friday of 2016. In my opinion, this is one of the most important burrito days of the year. Make it a good one!

If you haven’t already seen my instagram account, you know that I love food, especially Mexican food. I post food pictures all the time. If you are into that sort of thing, please follow me.

Today I plan to go to one of my favorite burrito places and eat a cow tounge burrito. It’s going to be amazing. It isn’t a Mission Burrito, but I am far away from San Francisco.

FYI if you need burrito receipes, I recommend checking this “thedailymeal.com” article on the best burrito recipes. The mission burrito recipe on that article is pretty solid.

Discovered Gabriel Garzón-Montano

I was listening to NPR Music today and heard a song called ‘The Game’ by Gabriel Garzón-Montano, and instantly loved it. Here is the song:

He has quite the biography! I can’t believe I haven’t heard his music until today. Drake sampled his music in one of his songs, and he had opened for acts like Lenny Kravitz. You can see his soundcloud page here.

Listening to his album now, it’s pretty good!

Also he seems to be pretty awesome live! Here is a live version of ‘Keep on Running.’
