This post is 50% housekeeping and 50% devops, and something that normally wouldn’t warrant a blog post but I’m still getting over last week’s vacation and didn’t want to wait another week before posting new content.

Let’s take a look at a quick example. For a few years now, I have been archiving my tweets as Google Sheets documents. There is …Continue reading "Did you know that you can use Google Sheets as a JSON API?"
