💡Tip: Focus your first impression.

Present yourself as one, not two things, to increase clarity in people’s minds and to be seen as the expert. Specialists get paid more than generalists.

Wollt ihr Sticker im Hackspace auslegen? Oder in der Uni verteilen? Auf könnt ihr uns jetzt bei eurer Bestellung mitteilen, dass ihr eine größere Menge benötigt.

The late summer and early autumn sun always gives the impression, “Hey, let my shine for you real bright,” even to a point of theoretically blinding you, “so I can do my best before I disappear,” or rather become something else during autumn/winter time.

I’m only staying with Evernote because of nostalgia - having been on the service since 2008, I believe, so the past memories I’m attaching to Evernote. That’s why it’s so valuable to me. Basically, because of being human and longing to have meaning and a meaningful life.

Why is Evernote so slow adding tags to 50 notes? - it takes up to 2 minutes

I spent 4.5 re-organizing 27,595 notes in Evernote, def not the nicest experience especially when Evernote still (!) doesn’t feature sub-folders… in 2021 *omg

Martha Graham's advice to fellow dancer Agnes de Mille:

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there's only one of you, in all of time, this expression is unique.

Sales of Better Blocker bring in money every month that contributes to the survival of our tiny two-person not-for-profit but, if Apple goes ahead with these plans, we will happily sacrifice that income as we would no longer want to be in any way associated with Apple Inc., and lend our legitimacy in privacy to its platforms (in the same way we don’t associate with other surveillance capitalists like Google, Facebook, etc.)

Unless Apple backs down on this AND makes a firm commitment to keeping ITS nose out of YOUR device, there’s no way I’ll be recommending everyday folks buy Apple to protect their privacy.

Unless they make this commitment, there will no longer be any difference between Apple & Google. (Apart from the oddly surprising position I might find myself in as I recommend Google Pixel phones running GrapheneOS to some folks.)

You’re fucking up, Apple. You’re fucking up big time.

I know you’re probably sick of hearing me say it but once more, with feeling this time: No trillion-dollar company is your friend.
