(I'm repeating myself from the daily beemail and we're also planning to rush out a blog post about this today!)
Bee (@bee) and I have now completed the first 2 days of Maniac "Mornings" in Month of May. We call the 2-hour chunks of time our Maniac Morsels. Aaron Parecki (@aaronpk) is actually publishing his as he goes if you want a taste of the mania:
Yesterday I worked on a Beeminder + Project Euler integration (attn @insti!) and today I worked on properly importing all the ancient UVIs from Twitter to beeminder.com/changelog (hosted on my new favorite toy, Glitch). Bee's working on replacing our hideous API docs with something pretty.
These are not the most pressing things but we thought we'd pick something fun and/or relaxing for our maniac time.
PS: It's totally not too late to dive in with us! Here are the rules:
- Mornings are great but you should pick a 2-hour chunk of time when you're most awake. Any time before midnight. (If it's after midnight then it counts as morning of the next day.)
- You just need 60 total hours in the month so you get one freebie day. If you haven't started yet, that would be yesterday!
Hmm, now I'm excited about properly packaging up the hodgepodge of scripts and tools into something non-nerds can use and also adding Beeminder integration so you can hard-commit to some amount of maniac time per week indefinitely instead of resorting to elaborate publicity stunts to get yourself to do it.
PPS: The prize for actually doing this (or helping other people do it -- thank you @whackedspinach and @oulfis!) is... Beeminder stickers. Also glory.
