[Tweet : nvALT]

Web excursions brought to you in partnership with Udemy. Learn Anything.

Introducing Paperback
Paperback, the elegant Pinboard “read later” service is live. I mentioned it in beta, and I think it’s a great tool. Sign up for $15/year.
AppleScript XML-RPC
Via MacStories, Daniel Jalkut notes that AppleScript has long supported XML-RPC and SOAP functionality for interacting with blogging platforms and other services on the web. Pretty awesome, especially for people running WordPress blogs.
Brew Methods
For the coffee fiddlers out there: recipes for Aeropress, Chemex, Pour-over and more.
50 writing errors that make you look like an amateur
A handy list for better writing. Also see the followup: 25 more writing errors.
Safari on iOS 7 and HTML5: problems, changes and new APIs
Interesting mix of good and bad changes in Safari on iOS 7. I’m concerned about the number of regressions.
