The New York Times

BB King died last week, the last of the three kings of blues; Freddie King; Albert King; and now BB King. I love the blues, and nobody embodies the fact that it isn’t the notes you play, but the notes you don’t play than BB King.

He will be missed.

Becoming a Better Thinker with Writing

21.05.2015 02:00

A fantastic post about reading and writing.

I often say that reading is good for you. And it is. But you need to read the kind of books that will make you think, and think differently. And you need to take some notes, write down some quotes. A books journal is a great place to start.

And pick up some of the classics, some Plato, some Aristotle, some Descartes, some Nietzsche in other words, the classics. There is a reason people have been reading them for a very long time.

I have a draft laying around about the new Facebook Instant Articles thing, but Gruber said more or less what I wanted to say. Read it.

Day One

21.05.2015 02:00

Beyond syncing, Day One Sync is vital to the future of the Day One platform. It lays the foundation for numerous future features, including multiple journals, a web client, shared journals, multiple photos, journaling via email, a robust API, and more

I moved over right away. It is way faster than Dropbox, or iCloud. I love it, and I really look forward to what they plan do with the new backend in the future.

Greenpeace

21.05.2015 02:00

It’s good to see that Apple are doing great on this Greenpeace report, and Facebook isn’t that bad either, while Google isn’t doing that well compared to the two, but isn’t that bad overall.

I love it when my employer push companies like Apple, Facebook and Google to become better and to make sure that this planet are in better shape for future generations. Because our partens and grandparents fucked it up for us.

Signature | The Cramped

20.05.2015 02:00

Patrick Rhone:

Signatures have power. Our laws are only desires until they bear the signature of those that execute them. Signatures have value. Our checks and charges are only valueless scraps of paper unless our signature is applied. Signatures have meaning. They are a promise. They change things. Yet, most of us dash ours off quickly, with little thought or recognition of such.

I love signatures, and I love how different they are. I see a lot of them in my job(fundraising). Some people have a slow and beautiful signatures where you can read every single letter without any problems, while others, like me just have a scribble, where you can recognize the starting letters of my first and last name.
