You can safely assume that we’ll continue to cover such apps because it’s just good for the soul, especially open source technology and applications that philosophically match with us well. I happened upon this open source HTML5 app framework the other day that had me digging into it more than just the frontpage marketing copy:
Crazy week, right? It’s been one for the record books for me personally as I’ve been attempting to finalize a Kickstarter campaign and project that has pretty much hijacked my entire life. At some point I’ll have a massive retrospective, but I’m exhausted with only a day or so to go.
