The usual brilliance from Andy Schwarz.
A reminder that, in order to be better writers, we must be better observers.
This is something I need to keep better in the front of my mind. It always feels like my writing is directly correlated with my reading. And my reading tends to be impatient and sometimes thoughtless.
As if I didn’t already have a huge man crush on Kevin Durant, this MVP speech is unbelievable.
Really thoughtful conversation between Bill Simmons and Chuck Klosterman. Near the end they really hit on what is SCARY about this situation. The ability for an internet mob to mobilize.
I love this post from Chris Bowler. In the past 6-ish months, I’ve found myself in a similar mode. I’ve always wanted my task list to be digital. I’ve wanted it available on all of my various platforms synced through the cloud. For a while, I was an avid Things user. I’ve also experimented with Trello (I still use it as sort of a long term “issue tracker”).
But late last year, when I discovered the Bullet Journal system, I decided to dive in. There’s just something about picking up a pen and writing physically that connects with my brain more. I more like I know what I have to do, and I feel more accomplished when I can check something off.
I don’t subscribe religiously to every little bit, but I think you have to find what works for you. I’d like to put more notes and events in to log myself. I’ve also been playing a bit with the Omnifocus 2 beta for keeping track of longer term tasks. But for managing my day to day, having a pen and a notebook has been fantastic.
The original story is here. Linking to Gruber because he links to an Obama quote. This was one thing I thought Obama would nail, and this administration has completely failed us. The FCC is trying to destroy the internet.
I’m far from a supporter of too much government, but the internet is one of those world changing things that requires an exception.
Can’t wait for this movie. I contributed to the Kickstarter in a heartbeat.
Fantastic. Man I love me some Josh Charles.
