Editor-at-large, @protocol. I write a newsletter called Source Code. Fighter of the Nightman. david@protocol.com and piercedavid@protonmail.com. DMs open.
I've been thinking about this tweet for like 24 hours now, because it sums up a thing I've been trying to figure out for a long time. Speaking is a better communications tool, but reading is much faster – so maybe the future is tech that can do both interchangeably? https://twitter.com/huntermoonshot/status/1271119309041999877

Hands down the most fun thing about writing an email newsletter every day is spending half my time trying to figure out why everything looks like crap in Outlook
The whole "Facebook is biased against conservatives" crew is going to have a FIELD DAY with Chris Cox coming back to Facebook https://twitter.com/teddyschleifer/status/1271150021962940417
Snap announced a bunch of stuff today, but one jumped out to me. It's called Camera Kit, and it would take Snapchat from "a messaging app" to the most important part of a camera-first future. If Facebook / Instagram is the iPhone, Snap wants to be Android https://www.protocol.com/snapchat-camera-kit
Though I guess it wouldn't be TOTALLY shocking to find out this is what Snap's offices actually look like
Leave it to Snapchat to take the whole Virtual Keynote idea to a truly wild degree
I've now been using @RoamResearch for like three minutes and suddenly I understand what all the productivity nerds I follow on Twitter have been ranting and raving about for the last three months
RT @chrija: If @zoom_us's stock price rises another 20%, this is how our calendars will look like.

One thing I genuinely admire about Amazon is that it's better at saying "Well, we tried a thing, it sucked, oh well, onto the next one!" than any other company I can think of https://twitter.com/ScottMAustin/status/1268667834088845312
Yeah! Big ups to @KodSof!

I’ve learned more from you than you know, man
Demian is the worst and I hate his guts, and also is wonderful and I am enormously proud of him and lucky to have worked with him. But mostly the first thing https://twitter.com/demianbulwa/status/1268617071723548672

tfw u spend most of your morning crafting an automation that will make ur job 2% easier roughly five times per month
it's highly specific to our internal HR systems -- when someone on my team puts in a time off request, I get an email from the system. the automation sees the email subject, creates a Todoist task to review the request and sets a due date for today. then deletes the email.
prior to this i'd been manually creating the tasks so I don't forget to address them and deleting the emails
