@DanShappir why? Just click on their profile and press "follow". What am I missing?

I've been following closely, and what I like about the progress is that it's slow and steady. The people pushing it are not in a hurry, and it shows (in a good way).

About 1/4 of all the accounts I follow on Twitter are now over here, and a lot of the ones that aren't here are official/corporate accounts (who cares) or inactive accounts. Already starting to feel like the fun, goofy, creative stuff I come online to see is largely here.

Matisse: "When working, [...] there is a constant back and forth until the work and I are in harmony. Like a writer, I am always revising, going back and making new discoveries".

I feel this is also true for my creative process as a developer.

@DanShappir Because you didn't link from your twitter account to this one. This link is used by debirdify and fedifind to find followers. I found lots of followers, but did not find you.

Set realistic goals, take one incremental step at a time and you'll get there.
