But I still don’t see ads in my Instagram feed. Literally none. This might be because I don’t have a Facebook account, or might be because my Instagram account is flagged in some sort of hidden way because of my prominence from here at Daring Fireball, or might be a bug. This has been a years-long mystery to me (that I probably shouldn’t complain about).

I understand why Instagram is adopting Facebook features: They work. But for years I logged into Instagram and enjoyed it more than Facebook. I fear a day when I wake up, open my phone and can no longer tell the difference between the two.

I recently deleted my Instaspam account entirely. I used to enjoy posting and viewing, but it’s just a useless stream now (like Bookface.)
Meanwhile, way back in the beginning, I had the foresight — knowing Instaspam would get eaten, monetized and rot into junk — I used a plugin on my site which kept all my photography: They are still locatable here, with one of my favorite tags: #Instaspam

one. hundred. days. (with one miss.) Worst part? …the photos. Shout out to Miguel on this one for catching me as I stuck a sequence of strides across the wall to a precision (on a wall, that’s not a flat-top box.)

It’s about two miles each way (it’s not a straight line) to my office. I can walk it in silence as a nice way to relax and unwind. But today I’m listening to podcasts, dictating notes, making calls and getting stuff done during my commute.

Variation of the 15 minute drill, on rings. Do about 15 seconds of effort every minute, for 15 minutes. Variations: Strict pushups with both hands in the rings; knee pushups both hands in rings; strict pushups with ONE hand on floor; static plank (high and low versions) with both hands in the rings; “clocking” where you move your hands symetically as far from the neutral position; good old pushups to failure on the ground to finish.

Again no specific photo, a great class with quirky challenges with good friends!

Strollin’ around Philly (the Italian market) and then meeting an old friend from college for dinner. Not really a workout, but it’s all I got for day 95. (so ready to be done with ‘100 days’!)
