Is there any app in the world with push notifications as terrifying as Headspace?
Had a dream about a version of Twitter where you could tweet 280 characters by day but only 140 characters at night. Very soothing.

The mysteriously furry brownstones of Hell’s Kitchen
Poured a mug of Grady's cold brew coffee concentrate this morning, forgot to add water, took a sip and thought, "yeah, that's about right."

Oh man, I forgot about that time we interviewed Bill Gates and I got the byline. Adding to my LinkedIn immediately
I have about 2-3 hours with my boys every night after work before they go to bed. It is really hard to say no when they ask to play. But when I force them to get into their own headspace for entertainment, magic stuff starts to happen

Wandering the British Museum alone, absorbing the power of the ancients
Hanging in a hip London bar and made the mistake of ordering a drink with “seltzer.” Blank stares all around.
The sound of a million meetings suddenly canceled
The developer conference will just have to wait
If Facebook mission was to make it easy for the 1.3 billion unbanked to save, exchange, and spend money online, why not simply integrate a system to use Bitcoin across its networks? Why ask people to use and trust a currency created by a cluster of giant corporations?
Nice little venue we’ve got here
Just signed up for my first coding class at @StackOverflow HQ

i would straight run through some jabroni trying to pay with their phone the turnstile during rush hour
 
The woman behind me based her approach speed on the assumption I would swipe and body checked me pretty hard
Really excited to have the opportunity to work with @Joinpursuit on educating a new generation of software developers https://twitter.com/StackOverflow/status/1138857308979642368
Alexa just offered to learn the individual voices of the people in my house. Nothing like a cheery robot building a biometric database on your family to start the day off right!
Just passed an A-list celebrity on the street. Dude was struggling with the same dad problems I have to tangle with every morning. For selfish reasons, this made me feel much better about myself. Stars, they're just like us!

The arcade at Industry City is awesome, but it has been open for a while and they never change the games. Half the machines are badly broken. He grumbles while losing to a six year old at Tekken

The US ranks 30th in LTE download speeds and 39th in upload speeds but we absolutely cannot give up "leadership" in mobile broadband and must rush to reduce competition through mergers and build 5G networks https://www.opensignal.com/sites/opensignal-com/files/data/reports/global/data-2019-05/the_state_of_mobile_experience_may_2019_0.pdf

For all the serious and thoughtful writing on "deep fakes" - the latest viral nonsense with Pelosi is crude and not highly technical. Slow down a video and speed up the pitch of her voice. For now, cheap fakes + social media are far more dangerous than AI-drive . deep fakes
Twitter tried to auto-correct “dad jokes” to “sad jokes” three times so that’s a pretty strong self own
I bring the dad jokes #elfstorage
