If you ignore all the reasons software makers need to be incentivized to build good software and create sustainable businesses โ€” how would an operating system look if it was designed to be more composable. If most use-cases we have today remained, could they be better served under the UNIX philosophy?

  1. Write programs that do one thing and do it well.
  2. Write programs to work together.
  3. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.

I dunno, it’s been on my mind lately.

Lots of productive one-on-ones at work reminding me how underrated good old fashion phone calls are. Cleaned up the apartment while Nate was at her moms and finished 12 Rules for Life.

Catching up on work. I’ve really fallen off the wagon with regards to keeping my news and twitter consumption to a minimum during the week. To combat some serious Clubhouse FOMO I wanted to see if I could create a DVR-like tool. Tried to watch their traffic but it looks like they’re pinning their SSL cert. Found a guy who figured out some endpoints but hasn’t figured out how to stream audio.

Questions

  • What am I really getting out of Twitter?
  • Why do I get tired so quickly reading but I can listen to people talk for hours?

Discovering a bunch of covers I had not heard. James Blake recorded when the party’s over and Godspeed โ€”ย both beautiful but too much like their originals. Unlike this recording of Waterfalls which is uniquely Death Cab. A good cover sounds lyrically familiar with new distinct ownership.

It’s a shame Vic Chestnut isn’t around to enjoy these covers:

If I could bid on artists to record covers I’d totally throw some money behind Ben Gibbard, Jenny Lewis and Jimmy Tamborello recording Phil Collins hits.

Thinking about scaffolds this morning and how important they are to progress. Kabat-Zinn explains how focusing on the breadth is a scaffold for meditation, meditation is a scaffold for awareness and in many ways awareness is a scaffold for a better relationship with nature and a more equitable relationship with each other. He says if we don’t heed the cliche, “we are standing on the shoulders of giants” then we’ll face a more difficult journey pushing beyond the scaffolds put before us.

Attempted to cut some mat board. Planned out a complicated six photo mount and forgot how easy a mat cutter can get away from you. Scrapped my efforts and will try again tomorrow with a little more patience.

Watched a few Explained episodes on Netflix. They’re good hits that send you googling. The Beauty episode and how dementia patients responded to art was thought provoking. Got me wondering if we could better quantify the importance of art in our wellbeing.

Listened to this Kevin Kelly interview and pulled some quotes:

Anonymity is like a rare earth metal that’s essential but only in very small doses.

Anonymity is complicated but I think I agree. 4chan style anonymity doesn’t seem productive but fostering an identity divorced from your real-world representation is very powerful.

One of the reasons why China has a Great Wall on censorship is โ€” this is what they say and it’s true โ€”ย to censor out fake news and rumor which is very rampant in China… They also censor political stuff but that’s the proximate reason is to control the incredible rumors and destructive misinformation that was going through social media in China.

A rare cogent defense of the Great Firewall that I had not heard. I would like to learn more ๐Ÿค”

Playing around with data portability. Iโ€™ve given up trying to use iCloud Drive, it works but introduces a host of concerns I donโ€™t want to deal with for these little tools. Instead Iโ€™m making it easy to import / export data. Fun side effect is it makes peer-to-peer sharing really easy.

Learned more about property animators and how they donโ€™t work well with the current presentation controller API. The best solution to animate a dimming view alongside a view transition is to thread the animator down to the presentation controller and add an animation block. Works but feels broken, Iโ€™m hoping theyโ€™ll address this at WWDC.

Also got scroll views working alongside the pan gesture that powers the transition.

Nice thing about all this is Iโ€™m left with a nice separation of concerns: 1) a Transitioning Delegate managing the ceremony of adhering to all the protocols and delegates which is largely reusable and 2) a Transition Driver where the animations and gestures are take place.

Woke up, went for a 4 mile run through Golden Gate Park. Working on Precap today. Grabbing drinks at 6:30 with a bunch of Designers at Rusted Mule. Might stand in line at Mensho after.

Mensho is AMAZING!!! Rusted Mule is okay. Need to try Rye and Resolute nearby.

The Lyft driver initiated fist-bump ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿค› is the greatest thing after a night out.
