I missed the 50th anniversary of one of the pivotal books in my life. Slaughterhouse Five was published in 1969, just before I was born. I didn't discover it until I was 16 years old.

I still really enjoy Feedbin as my RSS reader. One of the things that I like about the post-Google world of RSS aggregators is how community focused most of them are. It just feels like these are all kindred spirits that don't want to give up on RSS or ...
We might finally be coming out of the shared delusion that "follow your passion" is some how good career advice. While I'm sure there are people that have discovered the unlikely intersection of fun and employment my own experience is that each of these diminishes the other. It's ...
OmniFocus can be a bit frustrating but one feature that keeps me coming back is the custom perspective engine. For new users this can seem like impossible magic. It's not, but it does help to see some examples.
