I’m finding more and more useful things to do with spreadsheets these days.

What can an MBA mean for a designer? I wrote about my experience.

For the last 15 months, most of my non-work/family efforts have gone into completing my MBA. The effect on my blogging has been obvious. Well, I’ve graduated and have lots of pent up ideas that I’m hoping to publish in the next couple weeks. Feels good.

We finished the last group presentation of the MBA this morning. I am become PowerPoint, destroyer of worlds.

Just boarded a flight to Madrid in Atlanta. There was a facial recognition camera for my passport and boarding pass check. Convenient, but I recently did the same thing at customs going into China. Didn’t feel very comfortable about it Shanghai, don’t feel great about it here.

Our home in Texas is under contract and my family and I will be moving back to Seattle in August. Looking forward to a new adventure. On a related note, if anybody up that way wants to hire a recent MBA grad with 10+ years of design experience, let me know 😉

New Spider-Man is fantastic! Very very happy with it, especially after my consistently least favorite Marvel movies (the Avengers ones).

One thing I thought would have improved since my childhood is the longevity of rechargeable AA batteries. It has not.

Catalyst (formerly Marzipan) had me thinking of getting back into app development, but SwiftUI might have sealed the deal. It looks awesome, perfect time to jump in.

One thing the MBA has changed for me is how quickly I turn to spreadsheets when making life/money decisions.

I’m so glad we are reliving the time when web developers made their technical preferences our problem by not testing their work in non-preferred browsers. The dream of the 90s is alive in developer land. </sarcasm>

I’m always surprised how wet it is to cycle in fog. I suppose I should remember it’s basically a cloud.

Ben & Jerry’s announced dairy free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. They’re fulfilling a dream I didn’t know I had, but when will it arrive in stores?!

Really loving the latest Day One release for Mac. Feels much more native to the Mac and all the labels are readable again.
