The truth goes like this: it’s a big vacation week, opening day here in Detroit, and I thought — naively, as it turns out — that I could get away with not worrying about the Friday links post.
I was wrong. Turns out some colleagues here in the office, while I was wrestling with the byzantine processes that govern streaming MLB games and the even despairingly more complex blackout restrictions guidelines, told me that if I didn’t put up a Friday links post, they would lie down on train tracks until I did. That last part is a lie: they didn’t threaten any railroad sit in. My unpopular indifference to baseball led me to prefer to write this post rather than listen to baseball audio, which is all we can get even though we subscribed to MLB.com and don’t even get me started on the relative uselessness of a product that (a) is supposed to enable live streaming but (b) cannot stream live games for local teams due to the aforementioned ridiculous blackout guidelines.
So without too much further ado (and the irony that the preceding paragraph was indeed a lot of ado is not lost on me), here is this week’s collection of very fine HTTP products.
