R.I.P Dean

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 05:21:34 +0000

Dean Allen, a web pioneer and good man, has passed away. I've been processing the news for a few days and still don't know where to begin. Dean was a writer, who wrote the software he wrote on. His websites were crafted, designed, and typeset so well you would have visited them even if they … Continue reading R.I.P Dean



Thirty-Four

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 01:55:27 +0000

I am very thankful and grateful to have made it through the past year, which was a really special one personally and professionally. I learned to open myself up more to relationships, continued aspiring to be clear and direct with yellow arrows, and worked alongside some incredible people to tackle the biggest and hardest problems, … Continue reading Thirty-Four



Ariel Levy in Longreads

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 00:44:11 +0000

I had originally planned last year to write a review of each book as I read it, but The Rules Do Not Apply threw a spanner in the works. I had no idea how to write about it, much less review it. The author, Ariel Levy, has a great interview in Longreads from when the … Continue reading Ariel Levy in Longreads



Xerox Alto Zero-Day

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 15:37:54 +0000

Next to the very real news of the Spectre and Meltdown CPU issues, it was lovely to come across Ken Shirriff's story of getting past password protection on some old Xerox Alta disk packs from the 1970s. As further proof for why 2018 is going to be the year of blogging, two of the comments … Continue reading Xerox Alto Zero-Day



Morten on Gutenberg

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 20:54:38 +0000

Morten Rand-Hendriksen's talk and demo on Gutenberg from WordCamp US is an excellent overview of where it is, where it could go, and some VR stuff thrown in there for fun. Definitely worth the watch.



Books in 2017

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 23:19:10 +0000

Here's what I ended up reading this year, in roughly chronological finishing order. (I usually have 3-4 books going on at once.) Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. The Art of Stillness by Pico Ayer. Out of Your Mind by Alan Watts (audiobook, really a series of lectures). Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Mushashi … Continue reading Books in 2017



NORAD’s Santa Tracker

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 14:25:16 +0000

Politico has a lovely story on the history and present of the NORAD Santa Tracker, which started because a 1955 Sears department store ad had “a digit wrong — and was instead the direct line into the secret military nerve center in Colorado Springs, Colo., where the Pentagon was on the lookout to prevent nuclear … Continue reading NORAD’s Santa Tracker



Design in Kentucky

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 21:17:11 +0000

Fast Company Design has written Tech Has A Diversity Problem–So This Designer Went To Kentucky, about John Maeda's work pairing some of the top designers in the world with students in Paintsville, Kentucky. 



Post-Verbal Language

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 03:09:01 +0000

James Beshara has a really interesting read on how communication will change and evolve in a post-verbal world, namely one where human/brain interfaces like Neuralink can more directly transmit thought between people than the medium of language allows today. After reading the essay I wonder if people's thoughts or the neural pathways they activate, if … Continue reading Post-Verbal Language



iPhone Fast Charging

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 16:51:19 +0000

I love USB, cables, and charging things. So MacRumors comparison of different wired and wireless charging options and speed for the iPhone X is my catnip. tl; dr: USB-C + USB-C-to-Lightning cable gives you far and away the fastest times. I've found this true for the iPad Pro as well.



State of the Word, 2017

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 23:38:20 +0000

I really enjoyed connecting with the WordPress community in Nashville this previous weekend. On Saturday I delivered the State of the Word presentation alongside Mel, Weston, and Matías. There's always a post-event buzz but I definitely noticed a change in tenor of people's thoughts on Gutenberg after the presentation and demo. The video is above, … Continue reading State of the Word, 2017



Adam Robinson on Understanding

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:33:12 +0000

This is a long quote/excerpt from Adam Robinson I’ve been holding onto for a while, from Tribe of Mentors. Worth considering, especially if you strive to work in a data-informed product organization. Virtually all investors have been told when they were younger — or implicitly believe, or have been tacitly encouraged to do so by … Continue reading Adam Robinson on Understanding



Tribe of Mentors

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 23:55:28 +0000

Tim Ferriss’s new book Tribe of Mentors is out. I have finished it already, and can say it’s really excellent and I even liked it more than Tools of Titans even though I’m not in this one. 🙂 As I said in a message to Tim: Curious how Tribe of Mentors is different from Tools … Continue reading Tribe of Mentors



Heroin or Aspirin

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 13:45:03 +0000

The company Bayer is famous for inventing aspirin in 1898, which is arguably one of the world’s most beloved brands, and for good reason. But I was surprised to learn that just two weeks earlier, the same three guys who gave the world aspirin also created Bayer’s other big brand, heroin, which was marketed for … Continue reading Heroin or Aspirin
