We’re about to go on a four hour drive across Poland (with a four hour return trip): what audiobook would you listen to? I’m trying to get ideas but really diverse ones not ones “for me”.

🎶 Blue In Green (Take 3) by Bill Evans Trio Just discovered this version thanks to the YouTube music algorithm.

Round two of guess the book

Let’s play guess the book.

Can’t have a problem with trolls when you’re run by a troll and encourage trolling… sorry, “free speech maximumism.”

Urgh! What a day. Chris, it’s 10am.

… the Google play store has fewer ads than the apple App Store…Google!

I resisted the iPadOS 16 betas because I wouldn’t get stage manager and I wanted to keep my iPad reliable…but now freefrom is out in beta and I’ve got to try it! Time to beta!

My 3 favourite pieces of tech hardware from 2022

The end of the year is in sight. And while there’s still time for me to purchase a new piece of tech, I think it’s safe for me to create this roundup list (especially with my current financial situation). I haven’t bought too many items this year, but these three stand out above …

I’m planning to do a massive update of my site LearnCreateShare next week I’d love your feedback and thoughts. Some things I’m considering The name /domain The navigation and experience Updating/correcting info (like the about page) Probably won’t change the theme though.

Speaking with Paul Mignard on Twitter and he mentioned dropping the USB-C port, going wireless and making a thinner iPad. That could be an amazing iPad Air (that would hook up to a smart speaker for a home device?). A great sketchnoting device.

Turned off continuity webcam for my iPhone. I was getting multiple pings a day saying it was connected when I wasn’t even using a camera app. I’ll manually switch it on if I need it.

I shared this sketchnote summary of the One Minute Manager on my blog yesterday but I thought I’d share it here as well. I love the idea of focusing on catching good actions not mistakes. This was a core idea when I taught English to young learners.

New iPad Pros. Pencil hover sounds like a great feature, I’d love to know why it’s locked to the new pros? (current prediction, so you’ll upgrade!) M2 performance sounds CRAZY. Faster wifi…cool. I guess that’s nice. It doesn’t really sound that compelling. I …

Today’s fun little slip of the tongue while recording “You can drag and drog”. I want to know what drag and drog is.

I’d love a new iPad (money aside) so hopefully this new iPad Pro will help drive down prices of the last models and how knows what else they might bring out. The dead pixels in the middle of my screen have been annoying me for some time.

It turns out that N.T. Wright and Mike Birds excellent book on the New Testament is also excellent as a mic stand.

Playing with Linea for some quick easy drawings… really underrated app.

Over the weekend I had an unpleasant surprise. My company isn’t closing at the end of the month. It’s closing at the end of this week (meaning I get paid even less for this month). This whole process really has been difficult. I have managed to keep a somewhat positive outlook but at the …

Just used @gr36 shortcut to post my first status.

Today I learned that 75% of our sensory neurons are visual neurons.

The new gather desk stuff looks stunning. But those prices! (Also I backed the first kit and my desk doesn’t really have space for it all!)
