"(..) the double-diamond diverge-converge model of design." Oh, come on - are you kidding me?

Shoot. All my pencils are being used as bookmarks in books I haven't finished reading.

"Design thinking is not an exclusive property of designers" Donald A. Norman. Yeah, no kidding seeing as how design thinking consists of methods from all over the place. But they're still good methods - for everyone.

I long for simpler times. So webassembly scares the bejesus out of me.

I'm not making my notes public any more. I wish I could do that more often, but I simply lack the time to proofread them.

FYI: I'm also going to start using "gg" after excellent business meetings.

Yepp, kiddo. Your dads are using "lit". Time to reinvent your jargon.

How does a project get to be a year late? One day issue at a time.

CMS Wire just invited me to participate in a webinar on personalization - that was held yesterday.

Sometimes I misspell my own name as Rofl. Today I thought I had done just that when I was replying to an email: "Sorry to hear that you are ill. Hope you get better soon. Rofl." But luckily, I hadn't!

Had a hefty debate about nudging this weekend. Bought the book of Amazon today. Was I ... nudged?

So, Dropbox has added a three device limit to their free plan. And that's OK, it's just a another small nuisance. Perhaps it's time for me to just set up NextCloud and get it over with. But you're never really done when you run it yourself, are you?

Just read the release notes for Firefox 66: "Firefox now prevents websites from automatically playing sound. (..) Scroll anchoring keeps content from jumping as images and ads load at the top of the page". Nice!

I just tried piping this feed to Yammer via Microsoft Flow. It was OK. It kind of feels more complicated, and perhaps more powerful, than IFTTT and Zapier, but not sure. Yammer did not like HTML-content, so I had to convert it to text which left the links hanging in square brackets instead of providing a preview like pasting a link directly into Yammer would do. But ... whatever. Fun stuff!

Nobody has ever said to me "Well, Google does it". But there is an expectation that if Google can do something, then it's technically possible, and we can also do it. But they have thousands of engineers! Sometimes it might be better to ask "What can we do realistically?" rather than "What can we to technically?" Because, to paraphrase Hans Rosling, "The seemingly impossible is ... probably freagin' hard and expensive."

"People under 35 are intrigued (and sometimes jealous) of life without a smartphone; people over 35 just seem nostalgic." From I cut the big five tech companies from my life. It was hell.
