Automatically Publish Release Announcements from GitHub via releases

I wrote a simple program today called releases that allows you to embed release notes from GitHub anywhere you want in the form of a feed. This essentially allows you to use GitHub releases as a blogging tool for your project.

In addition to releases, this tool will also grab all issues that are marked as “bugs” and list them under known issues.

I am using this on the BrainDump home pages and its kind of neat. Check it out! Feedback is most certainly welcome.

Pier 7

One of my favorite places in SF is the Ferry Building, on Saturday mornings during the farmers market it is a hub of activity and has some of the most amazing fruit that I have ever tasted. Last night I discovered an amazing place that is a short walk away from the Ferry Building that somehow I have walked by many times but never stopped at.

Pier 7 is just an ordinary pier, but it has spectacular views of the bay and the city. It’s a great place to go at night and take it all in.

Nous Sommes Tous Parisiens

I am deeply saddened by the events that took place in Paris this past week. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who were killed or injured. I had a chance to stop by SF City hall the same evening that these horrible events took place. I am glad to see that SF and the US stands in solidarity with the people of France.
