Had to find an email from someone whose first name is “Benjamin”, so I typed @danbenjamin in Spotlight. I may need to lie down.

The hard work, from the user standpoint, already happened when we went from 6 (comfy, familiar, dated) to 7 (austere, new, untapped).
The big changes are beneath the surface, and as users we just get the great benefits. Example: extensions (new keyboards, 1password).
The transition from iOS 7 to 8 feels more like a point release than a major iOS jump. This is meant as a compliment to Apple.
I use Image Capture to download (and then delete) photos & movies to a Mac from the iPhone. The Mac is backed up to multiple places.
Finally backed-up/archived and deleted all the photos on my iPhone going back to February 2012. I now have 34GB free. #wayofthefuture
So far, QuickType is the only thing that’s “bad” about iOS 8. But it’s early still.

. @secondfret Thabks but we aren't looking for advice, need somebody with a circular saw and 2x4's.
Anybody in #austin good at building a basic studio set/backdrop, message me.
Guys, real talk here. Please please do at least one full iTunes backup before upgrading to iOS 8. It's REALLY worth the time and effort.

Yosemite is a flat circle.
I’d like Yosemite better if I could browse the web with it.
Yes, this @McConaughey #Lincoln commercial was filmed here in Austin. Too cool.…
In 2010, I had an amazing interview with @notch. I’ve asked him to be a guest on @gritshow. Cross your fingers.
What are you listening to right now?
I love coming home to #Austin. Thanks to everybody at #xoxofest for such a great time.

All of us have failed and will fail again. Maybe we're failing right now. Don't be so scared about it. Pick it back up or somebody else will

I think of daily shows as things you listen to live and weekly shows as something you time shift.
I'm in a car heading to PDX after another great #xoxofest. Thanks @waxpancake and @andymcmillan.
Are daily shows a) an awesome thing you enjoy and rely on or b) too much
Good morning. What are you doing right now?
We made a @5by5 group on Facebook, which is a website on the Internet.
Just used the @BaconMethod for this mornings breakfast. Thank you so very much @danbenjamin

Vocab Tip: There's a big difference between "having a BBQ" and "grilling". Just visit Texas if you don't believe me.'s "sending email" sound is so dramatic. Makes me laugh every time.
