"Here’s a polite person’s trick, one that has never failed me. I will share it with you because I like and respect you, and it is clear to me that you’ll know how to apply it wisely: When you are at a party and are thrust into conversation with someone, see how long you can hold off before talking about what they do for a living. And when that painful lull arrives, be the master of it. I have come to revel in that agonizing first pause, because I know that I can push a conversation through. Just ask the other person what they do, and right after they tell you, say: “Wow. That sounds hard.”"

Gifwit

God bless Gifwit.

There is absolutely no objective need for this to exist, but it’s so amazing that it does. Hotkey access to all your gifs, right in your Mac menu bar.

I’ve been using Pinboard to store gifs for while, and had about 150. Pulling them all down and rebuilding the tag library seemed like a dealbreaker.

JSON import/export to the rescue!

Grab your gifs from the Pinboard API: 

$ curl https://user:passwd@api.pinboard.in/v1/posts/get?tag=gifs

With a quick find-and-replace term substitution (“href” => “url”, “tags” => “keywords”), you’re good to go and Gifwit will start pulling everything in.

When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose
