1. The Disturbing Secret Behind An Iconic Cartoon

    March 31, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This is an incredible piece of journalism by Ariane Lange at BuzzFeed:

    Old letters, emails, and transcripts of AOL conversations between the women and Kricfalusi back up many of their claims. They each have witnesses to parts of their stories. Yet both women worried that they sounded “crazy.” For years ...

  2. Use Paper (Or Not)

    March 30, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’m skeptical of any proscriptive system that claims to solve the problem of information capture and recall. At one time the Franklin Covey system was the "fix" for a busy schedule. Then there was the miracle of the PDA that attempted to replicate the function of paper with the ...

  3. An Inconvenient Meal

    March 26, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I don’t believe much of the nutrition “science.” The studies are poorly defined and the results are rushed to a mostly illiterate media. I do, however, believe a broken clock is right two to three times a day depending on daylight savings.

    I haven’t found any of the ...

  4. Keyboard Maestro Adds File Drop Trigger

    March 24, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    It's incredible when an app as full featured and long-lived as Keyboard Maestro adds new features. Now we get file-drop triggers for macro actions. I've only just started experimenting with it. Here's a macro that I made awhile ago to grab the path to a file selected ...

  5. Hot Tyson

    March 23, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Neil deGrasse Tyson on the rise of crazy flat-earth conspiracy nuts:

    I think that the number of people may be the same over time they just now can write a blog that the whole world has access to by a search engine.

    I love this YouTube series because I love ...

  6. Tribalism and My Better Self

    March 23, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This episode of YANSS came along at a crucial time for me. I've been struggling with lesser traits.

    I love the idea of the “out self” and how we align our internal compass to what we project outwardly. This isn’t just about politics. We all exhibit the most ...

  7. What Is the “commerce” Process, and Why Is It Running on My Mac

    March 23, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I found the process “commerced” running on my iMac because of the wonderful Little Snitch. After allowing a process I usually go back and explore the rule to see if it was a good choice.

    commerced

    I found a nice article by Justin Pot on How-To Geek.

    That’s right: we ...

  8. Share to Micro.blog from Feedbin

    March 23, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I nearly missed this new feature on Feedbin. I don't use Micro.blog but I do really like Feedbin for RSS. This kind of thing is pretty nice for people that are trying to replace Twitter with a micro blog.

  9. The Video Game Crash of 1983

    March 23, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Some really interesting stuff in this Wikipedia article. It's easy to forget how complex the market is and how unintended consequences lurk behind every decision. For example, how a smaller coin in Japan meant a bigger impact from home game consoles.

    The U.S. game industry lobbied in Washington ...

  10. Sublime ZK

    March 21, 2018 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    More on this Zettelkasten concept. One of the developers of The Archive passed along a link to an absolutely incredible Sublime Text package, Sublime ZK.

    ZK

    The package is impressive in what it can do, but also in how it's documented. The Github page for the project is extensive and ...
