Inspired by the last few episodes of Cortex I’ve started time-tracking using Toggl.
Most of the time I feel a slight guilt both toward my family and my employer. I feel like I work to much, but I also feel like I don’t work enough. So the idea is the get some kind of data that points toward either, or hopefully neither, of those. So right now I’m tracking the time I am at work or in my home office working, and the time that I commute.
Maybe I get more impressed by the Dante technology than I should but I find it super cool that I can patch any outgoing signal in our studios or lecture halls into this Dante headphone amp and monitor them live in my office, without ever leaving my chair.
@colinwalker This is an interesting coincident. My streak has been far, far shorter than yours but I was hoping to at least keep it up for a few more days to earn the Daily Blogger pin on Micro.blog. However yesterday I didn’t get around to post.
I was thinking about it multiple times during the day. I even knew what to post but due to the things we were doing in the family yesterday, which was also going to be the subject of the post, I never posted anything.
This morning when I realized that I’d broken the streak I actually posted the photo that I was supposed to post yesterday and tried to set its date to late yesterday, when I had intended to do it. It worked for the blog but Micro.blog still (correctly) registered it as a post from today. Initially it bummed me out but then I read your post and realized that the streak is not that big of a deal and then I changed the date of the post again to be the actual posting date, not the intended date.
Started watching Better Things yesterday. Seems like a fun show. It’s always great to have one of those ”half hour” shows to watch with Linn, in addition to any other longer show we might be watching or that I might be watching by myself.
I enjoy the second season of Stranger Things a whole lot less than the first one. Not sure if it is because it actually is a worse season, or because my standards tv shows have been raised by West World and Twin Peaks this year, or because it was a novelty that just worked once.
@jeremycherfas I agree that the main thing that Twitter and Facebook are good for are marketing, but I disagree that my example is an example of marketing.
Sending out a tweet when a podcast starts live streaming or when a new episode is posted makes sense. It helps a lot of people noticing. But telling the listeners of the show that the best way to contact the hosts is via Twitter seems less true. e-mail, a Slack channel or subreddit would work just as well.
I think that especially if a more or less recurring segment on a show is complaining about how twitter is a toxic hell stew that more or less enabled Donald Trump, a person that the hosts paints out to be more or less Lucifer himself, to get elected as POTUS then the hosts really, really should reconsider whether they want to funnel more communication through twitter and thereby helping the service continue on.
I’ve been at home with Ebbe for most of today and he’s been quite cranky so I haven’t had much time to think about today’s photo. Just as I was heading for bed I looked around and as I was about to give up I encountered a familiar shadow.
