Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.

Scroll
An elegant version of a micropayment version of the web, with a decent spread of publishers already on board. No extension necessary, your login cookie automatically causes sites to hide ads and disable trackers. Free trial, affordable subscription.

I love the idea of directly supporting publishers—who continue to own their content—so they can skip the ads and trackers. Scroll isn’t the first attempt at this, but it has more potential for wide adoption than some others I’ve looked at. Here’s how Scroll works.

aaronjanse/3mux
A terminal multiplexer (inspired by i3) with out-of-the-box support for search, mouse-controlled scrollback, and i3-like keybindings. I love tmux but I can live without the scrollback/copy rigamarole it entails.
