When I’m using the Micro.blog scheduler for @TIL, I feel like I’m having a good day.

I don’t understand it, or why you would do it. Maybe one day I will do it, but I don’t see that. I don’t understand why you would want to tell other people, people you don’t know, what is good or not so good in the moment.

There’s one more post set to be published this evening, and that’s the end of the week for @TIL. With 14 posts it feels good to say that activity has resumed.

I’m looking forward to next week: the full set of regular posts and some updates.

Next goal: a full month of posts.

Glass for iPad looks pretty damn good

The list of strong reasons for replacing the device I sold (to help fund the move) is only growing.

Also, how cool is to see the folks at Glass outline the significant updates they’ve made in the 6 months since launch.

I mean, you could just talk.
