Update: this was a failure, I never updated it. So it's now gone
The first project in my year of little things is a new blog called Bits – a collection of the things I find and like: movies, tv shows, books, talks, photos, etc. It's more of a journal, a way for me to catalog the things I find, but in the unlikely event someone might find it interesting, why not share it?
It's also a good opportunity to apply the little things constraint. Before starting, the engineer in me immediately thought about building a custom Rails app, each post with its own type and style, maybe with...derailed before I even started. Instead, I decided to use Tumblr and made a blog in 10 minutes that does 95% of what I need at the moment. I can tinker as I go, improving it little by little, and has bonus points for actually existing.
