Hubski seems too quiet lately and I have only guesses as to why. One guess is me incessantly posting Trump scandals and news about the border crisis. I'm planning a news round-up of scandals and whatever is happening in that dumbass pocket dimension that spilled into our own somehow. With one easily filtered tag. The dump Trump Trump dump or something because I seem to really want to write headlines for the New York Post

I'd also appreciate iOS keyboard recommendations. SwiftKey has been getting progressively shittier. It's developed a fear of profanity for one thing. When I first used it on Android it was like a mind reader. Now it's no better than the default keyboard. I'm just more used to its quirks so I keep using it

I think it's because we've all but lost several major contributors due to time consuming jobs. The problem is every major contributors stimulates more conversation than just what they write, so the effect of losing a few is pretty big on a site this small.

Yeah, for me it's work and life consuming most of my time. I'm writing an academic paper based on my thesis as well, and I notice it's not easy to find the time for that. But I have also drastically cut down my time on Reddit, Twitter, HN, and reading newspapers which has limited my exposure to cool things to post here.

I'm here and reading, but often desperately unable to get down what I want to say about something. I've found airports and planes be my most productive Hubski time.

I'm going to share some stuff here tonight.

There are 10-15 very active people on Hubski, and it looks like we are all dealing with life offline right now. When I started with Hubski, I think there were only 3-4 posts a day.

The overlap between Hubski and Forever Labs is substantial and Forever Labs is busy AF.

I've thought of that too but I have no control of that so I'm going to offer what I can to help
