The boys have been enjoying the good weather and the chance to play lots of golf. I had a great day with Drew while he played in the flag competition at Cathkin Braes Golf Club.
Making progress with The Crown and Lost In Space on Netflix. Still trying not to binge on these and enjoy an episode every week or two.
I’ve been running a product test for a few weeks now for an event management solution for golf clubs called MyGolfOpen. I’m running the test for a handful of clubs to help them run their events and the feedback has been good. Might be onto something with this one.
Client work has been intense over the last couple of weeks and I needed a down-shift of work. I’ve been looking to bring PenMuse and DailyMuse together as sibling products. I’ve started this process by re-designing the PenMuse web site with a layout that I can use on the DailyMuse website as well. It was good to remove some cruft from the PenMuse website and return it to a simple layout that could be adapted to DailyMuse as well.
- Subscription hell // TechCrunch - I probably pay more for subscriptions than some but I’m using most of these subscriptions every day. Still, there is a frustration when sites opt for paywalls and make that paywall a significant amount of money.
- Smartphones Are Killing The Planet Faster Than Anyone Expected // Fast Co Design - I’m always aware that bigger devices use more resources to make and to re-charge. It’s one of the reasons I went for a iPhone SE when it came out. It has me questioning a lot of other tech purchases though, not just my next phone.
- Simon Winchester’s Writing Barn // Cal Newport - If only we could all retreat to a writing barn to get some work done.
- Jon Favreau’s Star Wars series will be set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens // The Verge - Great seeing more and more of the gaps between the Star Wars movies being filled in.
- The Expanse author James S.A. Corey is writing a new space opera trilogy // The Verge - Looking forward to this.
- Getting Started with Bullet Journalling For Web Developers // Curtis McHale - Curtis McHale provides a starting point for bullet journaling for web developers. I ran through this just to make sure that I was doing everything right in my bullet journaling. All good!
