What am I doing right now?

This is a now page - it tells you what I’m working on right now. Well, maybe not right now, I might be sleeping. It should be representative of what I’m currently working on though! While this post was initially created on 2018-09-05 I’m going to keep the post date up-to-date with the last time I updated this page.

Knowing me I’ll probably bodge together a Zabbix check to ping me an alert if I don’t update in longer than a month or something so it should always be accurate. [Edit: I did. That’s what reminded me to come edit this]

Reading

Right now I’m reading It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson of Basecamp fame. At the time of making this update I’m about half way through it.

If reading’s your thing I’ve got a Goodreads profile over here that I mostly keep up to date -> Cohan Robinson on Goodreads

Writing

This site. I know that sounds like sarcasm but honestly I’ve never been great at writing down what I’m doing or what’s on my mind. Blogging has always been a goal but never a focus. I’m attempting to keep this site up to date with at least the more interesting of the things I work on.

Wrote these recently:

Development

Currently working on Feedfinish which is essentially for now going to be a 1:1 replacement for Feedburner. Because apparently I can’t pick what I want to work on so I get distracted I’m relegating myself to the simplest of my projects

Podcasting

Still researching and writing up information on large businesses because dangit if they’re not interesting. The podcast is called Huge Beginnings and I’ll hopefully have a bit of a pilot episode sorted soon for it. Turns out writing things you have to research too takes a bit of a moment to get done. Starting to ponder the idea of outsourcing the initial research for each episode. At this rate I’ll be doing a new episode every 6 months D:

Twittering

Still got an on again off again relationship with Twitter. I’ll go months between checking it then suddenly it’ll be the place to be whenever I’m procrastinating. Pop by and say hello! @CohanRobinson



Sign up for emails about the things

You're signing up to a rather infrequent mail list where I let you know about the new things going on.
All the messages have an unsub link in them and I'm never going to sell, trade, or otherwise hand over your contact information to anyone.
You'll not be signed up to any new lists either, because I hate it when places do that to me too
