The image in last night's post was too compressed by Pic Store. I updated the webp compressor to use a higher quality setting, and also added a new endpoint that can rerun the conversion process without needing to upload the image again. Nice and simple when you can just trigger it with an easy-to-use background job framework.

Final work on the Ergo dataflow backend is done for now, and I can start on the UI for real. I'm looking at NeoDrag and Perfect Arrows to help with some of that. I'll probably roll the infinite canvas code myself, which I think won't be too hard but we'll see.

Finally, I have some extended time off next week, so I'm considering taking a break from my normal side projects to play around with embeddings and semantic search. Looks like there are a bunch of Rust crates such as rust-bert and hnsw_rs that should let me make good progress quickly.

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions or comments, please send me a note on Twitter.
