Giving the default macOS Spotlight a try for a few days. LaunchBar has felt slow in the last few versions and since it my main interface for most things — everything feels slow.

Without a doubt cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are the future. But I don’t see the corresponding demand of usage behind the current frenzy – just pure speculation. Can’t help but expect black day for BTC value between now and Chinese New Year.

Excited for Firefox 57 on the desktop and Firefox 10.0 on iOS coming next week.

Been trying to send money to Costa Rica for almost a week… so I welcome our upcoming Apple Pay for iMessage overlords.

Today while playing Robie told me Papi, cell aquí and pointed to the floor so I’d put the iPhone down. Multiple emotions, including amazement and a pinch of shame.

Taking a break from Sci-Fi, started The Nix by Nathan Hill last night.

Some app updates make me hungry.

Giving up on New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson. Usually love his books, but this is a mess of a novel. Story is all over the place and characters are two-dimensional. Really doesn’t read like him.

The building blocks of Saturday.
