Reverse engineer. Blogger.

The iOS 11 Public Beta is the first beta OS I’ve installed from Apple. I did so in part because I want to help improve the OS by providing feedback and analytic data, but also because I wanted to test my aforementioned app that I’m building, and lastly I’ve wanted driving mode since very early […]

Diversity vs. Inclusivity

Estelle Weyl: Interviewing diverse candidates will not create a diverse environment. While the above organizations may have filled that diversity pipeline, that pipeline is full of leaks. Diversity recruiting is really only lip service. Work, school, community and conference environments need to be inclusive. Inclusivity in the sealant that prevents many pipeline leaks. Many companies […]

Gardening is a violent act

Harold Jenkins: I’ve long wanted to do a piece on the subject of gardening as violence. Gardening is an extremely violent act. To start a garden you must first kill whatever is already growing in the place you want to garden: cut down trees, tear out vines, rip up or smother sod. Then you break […]

Colin Walker: Using OSX can be more intuitive at times but it is visually inconsistent. It may have been through various aesthetic revisions but it can feel old. I think Microsoft has done a better job of enforcing a standard look for applications on the desktop and the Windows design language is now generally more […]

Earlier this week my Condron Media cohort Tucker Hottes and I presented at the July NEPA.js Meetup. Our presentation was about automation and all of the things we can automate in our lives personally and professionally. And also how we employ automation in our workflows for creating applications and web sites using our own task […]

In early June I decided I wanted to learn iOS app development using Swift. I’ve made a lot of progress over the last month, building two apps that I can use on my own phone, and one app that I’m now in beta testing via TestFlight with a few friends. Over the last month I’ve […]

Their own technology

Garrett Sloane for AdAge: Apple News will let top media partners use their own technology to fill the ad space in their content, becoming more of an extension of the publishers’ own websites than the walled-off island it is now, the people said. At first I thought those that were linking to this have this […]

Well done Scott McNulty

Scott McNulty: Let me repeat that: I’ve lost 50 pounds in 5 months! Scott and I have dieted together in the past. In fact, it has already been 12 years! He did tremendously well then so it is of no surprise that he’s killing it yet again. He, like so many dieters including myself, had […]

Twan van Elk: Everytime I open up my feed reader and read about people’s lives, thoughts, work, observations, what they ate, that beautiful flower they saw, I ask myself: why do I enjoy this so much more than any social media timeline I’ve ever been on? Because blog posts feel more permanent than social media […]

Colin Walker: Evergreen content. It’s what many bloggers crave. Posts that keep people coming back. Passive traffic that you don’t have to do anything more to receive. Back-in-the-day we called this the longtail. Publish enough posts on a given niche and generate tons of traffic over the longterm due to people searching for those topics […]

Tabledo

Tabledo: Create dynamic websites automatically using data from your spreadsheets as content. Cool idea. It appears Tabledo takes my idea much further. Last June I wrote: I was recently asked by a client if I could use an existing Excel spreadsheet and create a single-page web site from it. This way, their team would be able to […]

As the summer heat rises in our hemisphere it seems that the river of content online dries up to a slow trickle. I wonder if that means I should expect more from our friends Down Under during these months? Here are a few things that caught my attention: Mars on Google Maps – Google has […]

Liam Dempsey: Walking through cities that trace their history back to the 1200s and to churches that reach back to 800 AD is deeply moving. The connection to the past is palpable and gripping. I felt this very same feeling when in Ireland. You realize the pub you’re in is nearly a thousand years old […]
