👉 Brent Simmons:

Here’s the thing: blogging is like any other human activity — some people stop and other people start. It’s natural.

Repost: Alex Hoffmann on the importance of WWDC 2019 for him

👉 Alex Hoffmann:

This week’s WWDC is going to be a make-or-break situation for me. It’s going to determine whether I will continue to consider Apple’s tablets worthwhile or if I’m going to move to a Microsoft Surface Pro once they release one with USB-C/Thunderbolt 3.

I’m telling you. This is an important one on many fronts.

Repost: Simon Woods on silos

👉 Simon Woods:

The line between “I hate these silos and everything they represent” and “I like being part of the conversation with big groups and value the space where everybody can be found” continues to be a line upon which I stare.

Ugh. This is at the core of my neuroticism.

Repost: Brent Simmons on RSS readers

👉 Brent Simmons:

Any time someone writes that they “still use an RSS reader,” I think to myself: I still use a web browser. I still use email and still send text messages. I still make sentences out of words. I still wear shoes.

No need for the “still” word.

Repost: Christopher Castro on Minimalism

👉 Christopher Castro:

Minimalism is not about deprivation. It comes down to what is adding value to one’s life. For everyone it’s different and it’s always changing.

👉 Furaha Joyce on Twitter:

Stop shrinking yourself to fit places you’ve outgrown

Gut punch of a tweet.

Repost: Becky Hansmeyer on deleting blog posts

👉 Becky Hansmeyer:

Every once in awhile I have to fight off the urge to go through my blog and delete old posts that I consider stupid or poorly written. I have to remind myself that they’re all part of the journey; I’m a better writer now than I was four years ago, and a better programmer too.

Repost: Becky Hansmeyer re: app icons

👉 Becky Hansmeyer:

Xcode should, by default, generate app icons for all sizes from a single artwork file. That would eliminate such an obvious pain point for app developers and designers.
