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.

Repost: Stephen Pieper re: Indieweb plugins

👉 Stephen Pieper:

I went a bit crazy with Indieweb plugins and services to begin with. The fervour of the new follower. I’m cutting out the stuff I don’t need now or the the things that just don’t work the way I want them to. Manual seems best for some things.

Repost: Cabel Sasser re: Apple update caching

👉 Cabel Sasser on Twitter:

macOS 10.13 Tip: have lots of iOS / Mac devices in your house? And a Mac that’s usually on? Turn on “Content Caching” in Sharing prefs, and updates will be downloaded to all your devices from your Mac, saving time and bandwidth. LINK

Repost: Jonnie Hallman on Twitter re: spreadsheets

👉 Jonnie Hallman:

I’m certain 90% of web apps could be replaced by spreadsheets.

Repost: Nitin Khanna re: Instagram hashtags

👉 Nitin Khanna:

I am LOVING Instagram’s new hashtag follow feature! It makes perfect sense and makes my feed that much more interesting! Now if only other social networks understood this simple idea.

Random iOS 11 bug: type 1+2+3 quickly in the stock calculator app, see what happens. Bet it won’t say “6”.

iPhone X summary: wireless charging (with wire), all-screen display (with black bar) and sleek, flat shape (with camera bump)

Repost: Daring Fireball on the iPhone X notch

👉 John Gruber:

Long story short: embrace the notch.

Repost: Mike Rundle on Twitter re: the iPhone X notch

👉 Mike Rundle:

In landscape the notch literally chops out part of the video. Can’t believe they didn’t indent it a little bit.

Repost: Mike Rundle on Twitter

👉 Mike Rundle:

The new top-end iPhone will have a notch. New top-end Android phones (V30, S8) do not. Hard for Apple to spin that.

Repost: Emily Lakdawalla on Voyager’s 40th Anniversary

👉 Emily Lakdawalla on The Planetary Society blog:

The fact that both Voyager spacecraft are still functioning and doing science, 40 years after their launches, is reason for optimism. We can build robust, adaptable machines capable of surviving unpredicted storms and responding to new discoveries. We can build them, launch them, and stably operate them for four decades, and more. Can we now turn those skills homeward, to building an adaptable and sustainable society? Who knew that rocket science would be the easy part?

 

Repost: Noah Read on Trevorrow’s exit

👉 Noah Read:

Heard the news about SW IX director. After seeing how Disney handled Rogue One’s director and the results I’m optimistic. They seem to be good stewards, with the humility to make changes when necessary.

A lot of amazing people don’t speak at conferences because they think speaking requires being an expert. It doesn’t. At all.
