• If the courier has decided that my “business is closed” (I work from home) and rescheduled a delivery, does that mean I can take the day off?

    I feel like I forgot to send myself a memo.

  • 📚 Finished reading James Clear’s Atomic Habits yesterday. Some good insight, to be sure. I would have liked something a bit more actionable, but the stories told provided some good takeaways.

  • We caught Bumblebee the other night and really enjoyed it. If you’re avoiding it because you didn’t like the last few Transformers films, I’d recommend giving it a chance!

  • I’m sad to see Thimble going away, but I’m really glad to know that Glitch has stepped up to provide a home for Thimble users’ apps: medium.com/read-writ…

  • Feeling fantastically, frustratingly scatterbrained today. I did manage to get in a good amount of focused work, but it was a struggle to get there.

  • “Results indicated that students who read on print were superior in their comprehension to screen-reading peers.”

    🔗 Skim reading is the new normal

  • I’ve been up since about 3:30am and have walked about 200m this morning, and yet my Apple Watch still hasn’t registered a single “Stand” hour. 🤷‍♂️

  • 🔗 Making it personal

    Link-stumbling across the web today, I fell upon this great read. Several years old now, but still evergreen.

  • One day is as good as another for kicking off something new, but there’s something about the first day of the week, month, and year that makes it especially motivating.

    I’ve fallen behind on some personal projects in the whirlwind that was November; time to pick them back up!

  • Go, InSight! 🤞

  • I’ve been tracking a low-grade fever in Apple Health, and yet my watch is nonetheless encouraging me to close my Activity rings. Seems like a good opportunity for deeper integration.

  • November in Montreal: Just like that, the city wakes up to find itself under a pristine blanket of snow.

  • Those days where it’s not quite cold enough to snow, so it rains instead… those are days made for hot cocoa and a good book.

    So, naturally, I’m out in the cold and the rain.

  • There’s something wonderfully appealing to me about Jeffery Diduch’s explorations of the sartorial; this first post on a vintage golf suit is no exception.

    🔗 Going Down the Vintage Rabbit Hole

  • I’m looking forward to rolling up my shirtsleeves and helping make Glitch the fun and safe place to create and learn on the web.

    The Next Chapter

  • I haven’t bought an iPad since the 3rd generation, and while I was really hoping for a new iPad mini, I have to admit that the new 11” iPad Pro is kinda tempting.

  • Nature makes the best carpets.

  • On the Canadian App Store at least, today’s feature story is about Badland having been “made on iPad”. A hint of things to come in the media event on the 30th?

  • Really, if you need to deal with repos and version control and such on your iOS device, do yourself a favour and buy the amazing Working Copy app.

  • Am I totally not finding the button, or is there no way to create a new repo on GitHub from my iPhone?

  • Did the whole “write a post out with pen and paper before typing” for the first time this morning, and it was an interesting experience. I’m not yet convinced that it works better for me, but it did force me to pause and think a bit more, rather than just type away and inevitably make minor edits as I go.

  • First CocoaHeads meetup in… gosh, I have no idea how long.

  • Sometimes I just fold and unfold code in Xcode just to watch that little animation in the editor.
