Common at Tiny Desk

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 14:28:04 +0000

This Tiny Desk concert at the White House with Common and some of my favorite musicians Robert Glasper, Derrick Hodge, and Bilal was incredible.

Taking Sides

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 17:32:35 +0000

From Elie Wiesel’s Nobel Peace Price acceptance speech in 1986: And then I explained to him how naive we were, that the world did know and remain silent. And that is why I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the … Continue reading Taking Sides

Defrauding an Election

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 23:12:50 +0000

Wired has a fun and informative look at How to Rig a Presidential Election in 1000 Easy Steps. Basically it’s impossible — I hadn’t really thought of this before, but every precinct has its own officials from both parties that certify everything, there are just a ton of people involved at every step of the … Continue reading Defrauding an Election

Back on Tim’s Podcast

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 05:01:23 +0000

I went back for a Round 2 answering follow-up questions from Tim’s readers on the Tim Ferriss podcast. About an hour long and covered a wide range of topics. One of these days I need to start podcasting more directly. In the meantime, please give it a listen! Already some great tweets and responses have … Continue reading Back on Tim’s Podcast

Happy Birthday Om!

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 23:09:51 +0000

Today the legendary Om Malik celebrates his 50th time around the sun. For many that know him, Om defies definition: He’s first a writer, and finally always a true friend, but in between he’s an investor, photographer, oenophile, closet Bollywood fan, critical thinker, and sartorialist. He’s also been my friend and confidant for over a … Continue reading Happy Birthday Om!

40 under 40

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:33:14 +0000

I’m still catching up with things after the Automattic Grand Meetup, but excited today to be included on the Fortune 40 under 40 list, which I’ve graduated to after being termed out of the under 30 lists. I came in at #20 and it’s great to see lots of friends on the list as well.

Fun Shopping Finds

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 05:03:21 +0000

In midst of a crazy couple of weeks, some retail therapy and cool finds. I’m most excited about The Napsack, a sleeping bag which you can also wear as a coat, from a company called Poler that has a lot of fun items, patterns, and colorways. The Zolt Laptop Charger + Apple Macbook cable add-on … Continue reading Fun Shopping Finds

The Meadow

Sat, 10 Sep 2016 18:01:41 +0000

Bedeviled, human, your plight, in waking, is to choose from the words that even now sleep on your tongue, and to know that tangled among them and terribly new is the sentence that could change your life. From The Meadow by Marie Howe.

Koya Bound Kickstarter

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 18:40:15 +0000

In March I took a eight day hike in Japan with Dan Rubin and Craig Mod, which was definitely one of the more beautiful journeys I’ve taken, and I couldn’t imagine finer gentlemen to have embarked on it with. We trekked, ate, bathed, had long conversations about life, about our fathers. When I returned to … Continue reading Koya Bound Kickstarter

What a Week: WordPress, Maeda, .Blog

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:35:18 +0000

I’m still overwhelmed from last week, which was full of major announcements. Get your Instapaper / Pocket ready because I have lots of links! It started with a very smooth WordPress release, version 4.6 “Pepper.” A week later it’s had over 4,200,000 downloads and upgrades are rippling throughout the WP ecosystem with 13% of all known … Continue reading What a Week: WordPress, Maeda, .Blog


Sun, 21 Aug 2016 22:44:06 +0000

The Hydraulic Press Channel on Youtube is pretty much the best thing since, forever.

Chip to Enhance Intelligence

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 16:49:00 +0000

“Putting a computer in your brain is no longer science fiction.” Pretty awesome work from (WordPress-powered) Bryan Johnson and Theodore Berger, (WP-powered) Kernel.

WordPress Olympians

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 21:58:31 +0000

Many of the world’s finest athletes — from Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt to American tennis player Serena Williams — publish with WordPress. With the Rio 2016 games upon us, we turn to Olympians, Olympic hopefuls, and elite athletes who have blogged over the past year about the joys and challenges of competition at the highest level and … Continue reading WordPress Olympians

Simplenote Open Source

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 00:10:57 +0000

The first-party premier Simplenote native apps for Android, iOS, and macOS are now fully open source. I’m very proud of the team for this, and excited that the broader Simplenote community can now see behind the scenes of how things are developing with the app, which remains one of my personal favorites across every platform. … Continue reading Simplenote Open Source

Free the Cable Box

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 08:46:28 +0000

Techdirt asks: Why Is The Copyright Office Lying To Protect The Cable Industry’s Monopoly Stranglehold Over The Cable Box?

Wharf to Wharf Race Time-lapse Video

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:49:58 +0000

Caught a time-lapse from the first runners to some of the last walkers, and a cool band “The Noisy Neighbors” playing for this year’s Wharf to Wharf race in Santa Cruz. Video is about 23 seconds, if you look closely you can see the front-runners at the very beginning.

Guest House by Rumi

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 21:47:35 +0000

This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may … Continue reading Guest House by Rumi

Mortgaging Your Site’s Future

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 14:52:18 +0000

Mortgaging your site to a closed-standards vendor gives them, not you, the economic power. Another Matt from Alley ruminates on Medium’s uncertain future for publishers. I agree that these first couple of publishers probably got a good deal: better than free, they’re guaranteed money regardless of whether Medium makes money or not. In making the decision … Continue reading Mortgaging Your Site’s Future

Bugs Are Human

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 03:24:10 +0000

It’s an old one, but I love this story about how part of what psyched Kasparov out, and possibly turned the tide, in his famous chess match against Deep Blue was actually a bug.

Jetpack Secure Sign In

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 19:45:22 +0000

I’m really happy about the feature in today’s new 4.1 release of Jetpack that streamlines logging in with your account. When this is finished it’ll completely protect you from brute force attacks (and server load), and you can secure one login with two-factor for all your sites rather than maintaining dozens of user/pass combinations … Continue reading Jetpack Secure Sign In

When They Show Up with Money

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 00:24:08 +0000

It’s a time-tested strategy for social networks to pay influential early adopters to use their service, in the hopes of convincing regular folks to create content on it for free. Mark Armstrong asks you to think about What to Consider When the Platforms Show Up with Money.

Archiving the Internet

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:52:34 +0000

Jenna Wortham has a good piece on How an Archive of the Internet Could Change History, bringing together some interesting threads from Keith Haring to quantum mechanics. This is part of the reason I’ve been fascinated by the inter-planetary file system, which I mentioned on stage at WordCamp Europe on Friday.

First Father’s Day

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 15:49:30 +0000

This is my first father’s day without my father. His memories and spirit have been very present with me the past week, but today is still tough. Miss you, Dad, and I will continue to try and make you proud.

Human-Sized Life

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 19:18:09 +0000

WordPress is a Teenager

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:43:02 +0000

Thirteen years ago, building on the work of Michel and B2, Mike and I pushed the button on the first-ever release of WordPress. That means it’s now a teenager, which is blowing my mind similar to what I imagine real parents might feel at this stage. We now have 5-7 years of awkwardness and incredible … Continue reading WordPress is a Teenager
