Dr Pancakes is IN.

Last night I dreamt I was interviewing Jony Ive at Apple Park. Never gonna happen, but my goodness, that’s a conversation I’d like to have.

So, I’ve done the photos thing. Thanks @cleverdevil - looks good!

Success - new belt! #soobahkdo

Testing times for Iris… #soobahkdo

I feel this e-mail subject line is unlikely to be bettered today:

Iris wants you to know that she has pizza 🍕

While I do still love a good paper book, there are times that digital books are just so much more useful, especially in non-fiction.

After the social network, the new bloggers are coming…

One of the things that I’m most angry with the social networks about is the way they deprived me of so many interesting voices. How many bloggers whose in-depth thoughts I valued, enjoyed and was challenged by have been sucked into the easy dopamine hit of social networks? How many exchanged depth, value and complexity for soundbite posts and memery?

One of the things I’ve valued over the last couple of years of micro.blog has been finding new voices and thinkers, who have been prepared to put the time and effort into writing things of worth, and to linking to those of others. It’s a new tool to surface an neglected way of thinking and working, and I value it.

Thanks everyone. You are genuinely enriching my life.

Ridicule is nothing to be scared of.
