Facebook Page

I created a Facebook Page for Pony Foo a few hours ago. If you have a Facebook account you can just Like the page and then you’ll get updates right in your timeline as new articles come out.

I hear some people prefer following news right on Facebook instead of over email, so that’s possible now too. Whenever an article comes out, the Page will be updated with a link to the article.

On Twitter

Pony Foo (@ponyfoo) has been on Twitter for a while now. The account automatically posts articles immediately as they come out, and from time to time I also retweet stuff with that account.

I may or may not reply to mentions, and you’ll probably have better luck reaching me at @nzgb – my main Twitter account.


Articles are also usually posted to EchoJS, a JavaScript news aggregator; Hacker News, the well-known incubator’s link aggregator; and Lobste.rs, an invite-based alternative to Hacker News. While my articles aren’t the only thing on these places, a lot of the content shared on these platforms is pure gold.

Rss (feedly) where it is nicely catalogued with other web developers, available in chronological format, and available to me when I need it.

RSS using Thunderbird. I only check RSS once a day or so, and on the PC is nicer than on the phone.

Plus I can leave articles unread in the Feeds inbox, so all my unread stuff is catalogued in one place.
