Awesome MIT boat cruise party is awesome! @ Boston Harbor instagram.com/p/sOG6CgoZv-/
This MIT efficiency apartment feels so much like a hotel room that I keep worrying a cleaner will walk in. Of course that’ll never happen :(
At the gate, waiting for the first leg of my flights to Boston for MIT. Sadness about those I’ll miss is currently masking all excitement :(

Proving really difficult to order duvets or towels in a color resembling #f06. Pink berry, fuchsia, magenta, everybody calls it sth else!
Why do people apologize for emailing “out of the blue”? Isn’t that the whole point of email?

I helped: I weighed the ingredients! :p RT @juliancheal: Made chicken liver pâté for the first time ever. Was so good pic.twitter.com/LpICGN7nb4

The point that society likes to think of itself as vigorously anti-paedophile but does little or nothing useful about it is important.

.@_mestevens Humans are irrational & rarely question what feels good. Belongingness is a primary human drive and borders fulfil that need.
.@_mestevens Totally agree. IMO being able to live wherever you want should be a basic human right. But I’m in the minority on this. :(

What Kind of Logo Do You Get for $5? An epic tale of deception, stolen artwork, and crappy logos medium.com/@sachagreif/in… Fascinating read.

Surprised nobody has made an @alfredapp workflow to run JS. Would be really useful for quickly testing expressions, regexes etc.
