  1. Some Googling about, some slapdash, baling wire, and duct tape and we’ve got something mostly automated to handwrite a /note post on paper with pen, take a photo which autosaves to Google Drive that does OCR into Google Docs which is picked up by IFTTT that does a webhook to Micropub draft post to my website which then auto syndicates to Twitter, Mastodon, and Micropub. 🎉
