Imagine the meeting at Google where they decided they should have an iOS app called "Drive" & one called "Docs". #imaginethemeeting
Scientology gets a lot of criticism online, but you really have to give them credit for being early in perfecting in-app purchases.
"Other icons frequently misunderstood by users include the heart & the star." nngroup.com/articles/icon-… No, the ambiguity is usually useful.
Sometimes when people are tired or stressed, they engage in risk-taking or self harm. Anyway, I read the comments on a news story.
I love parts of Reddit and recognize it's a vast heterogeneous site but when I say "fuck Reddit" this is what I mean: medievalpoc.tumblr.com/post/933395941…

Keith Alexander says he can protect from cyberattacks, but didn't do it at the NSA so he can patent & profit from it now.
Techies: You're outraged at the NSA? NSA's ex-director is profiteering $miliions from cybersecurity. What will we do? theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
Politicians and media consistently treat drug laws around marijuana as a joke. It's not funny at all. vox.com/2014/7/31/5952…
Sure @questlove anchors his DJ set of Prince tunes w/ an obscure studio jam. But will he let all 25 minutes of the song play? No! Injustice.
For all the criticisms & frustrations I have about the tech industry, I still do believe we can make things that are meaningful. I hope so.
I sometimes get self-conscious about making an app that's new & odd & idealistic. But I'm glad so many get it now: thinkup.com
I work on @thinkup every day, so it's hard to judge if I plug it too much, but I am *so* proud of what the team's built. You should try it!
Really appreciated @tcarmody describing @thinkup as one of the last of the great Twitter apps over on @kottke: kottke.org/14/07/the-last… :)
Almost every video on YouTube was filmed on the same set. @ftrain explores architecture through the webcam: medium.com/message/the-am…
Anyway, these are my tweets. They may all be wrong! Or even stupid. I'm sorry, there are no refunds available. (I'm not really sorry.)
And there is truly an ineffable joy when you share some part of culture with a person and it gets them past a preconceived rejection of it.
There is iliberation in seeing another's disdain or snobbishness toward one's own tastes & recognizing it as nothing but their insecurity.
The false concept of "guilty pleasures" is a hugely pernicious way of enforcing restrictive cultural norms. Enjoy any art. Feel no guilt.
There's something wonderful (& sadly rare) about men writing from a place of empathy. Hard not to fanboy for @kfan or @jsmooth995.
If you'd like to see truth, you should read @kfan on Kim Kardashian, and her game, and media, and humans in general: kfan.tumblr.com/post/933067928…
For each time harassers in the mentions column made me + others feel threatened & helpless, hope @dickc is paying attention to #askcostolo

Do PowerPoint or Keynote integrate Flickr image searches? What about the web app versions of them?
Obviously there are exceptions, but an extraordinary amount of value is dependent on people being able to search for CC licensed photos.
Stories on smaller sites often don't depict post-2010 phenomena because that's when photos stopped being uploaded to Flickr w/ CC licenses.
