This is the new laptop I would buy :)

I really like this interview with Merlin Mann. He’s a funny guy I genuinely like and this interview taps into a more humble, honest side of him. Kind of a intimate interview, really.

iOS 7 default contacts account

Just FYI, when I upgraded from iOS 6 to iOS 7, the Default Account for my contacts was changed from Google to From My Mac. I had created a couple contacts on my phone that hadn’t showed up in my Google account. That’s why I noticed. Could be a real PITA if I didn’t notice for a while.

Regarding the previous post, I now realize it puts into words something I’ve been thinking about a little bit lately. I’ve wondered if perhaps I could just start doing the things that a better future me would do, I would be on the path to that very me. This post taught me what now seems obvious: future you is an identity. We all live our identities, right? Define your identity, create your future.

The pen is mightier than the sword when it comes to a better life. Yes, the words you say to yourself, the words you read, and the words spoken to you by others can have a significant effect on the daily decisions you make.

An internal document by J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof has leaked onto the web that details some early show structures, characters, and possible episode plots. Since I liked the show a lot, I found it a fascinating read.

I came across this question as I was driving around today. Not in an especially prominent place. Tucked away. Spray painted on the back of a warehouse on a less travelled road. It challenged me. I felt as if all those who happen upon it, those fortunate few, owe it to the asker to answer. My first answer: It’s likely been too long.

iOS 7 drops in two days. So excited!
