Marco’s post about the 2012-2015 MacBook Pro rings true to me. I still use the 2014 version of this laptop… Don’t want to “upgrade” to anything else.

Because you’re passionate about it

“People will want to go to it because you’re passionate about it, and people love what other people are passionate about. You remind people of what they’ve forgotten.” — Mia in La La Land

Business without direction is hollow. Your company can be full of users or money but if it’s empty of purpose, no one will truly care about what you’re building.

This is one of several problems with Twitter today. It’s not just that the leadership team is overwhelmed and paralyzed. They can no longer articulate to users what Twitter the company is passionate about.

Impressed with the Celtics ability to close out games, even without Kyrie. Their streak extends to 12. 🏀

For day 2 of the photo challenge, my go-to for coffee at home: Chameleon cold-brew, ice, water, and a splash of milk.

I’ve updated Micro.blog’s Twitter cross-posting to support 280 characters. The apps still color the character counter blue until 140, and red after 280, just in case you want to stick to shorter posts.

One election day down, one more to go

Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo on last night’s victory for Democrats:

When a President is locked below 40% approval and often closer to 35% approval, his party will face a brutal and unforgiving electorate. This was a fact a decade ago and it’s a fact today. We’ve just been stunned into an unwarranted uncertainty by the fact of Trump’s victory one year ago today.

November 2018 feels like a long time from now, but it will get here.

I should’ve added an “I voted” pin to Micro.blog for posting voting sticker photos. We’ll do that for 2018.

Redesigned the Micro.blog splash page (when you’re not signed in). The most concise expression of the mission statement so far.

Election day in the United States. There’s probably something on the ballot where you live. Doesn’t have to be big to still matter. Vote!
