I guess the moral of this story is to take a chance. I did the right thing even though I wasn't prepared and didn't know what I was getting into. In the end, I helped a sad and sick dog become a beaming bundle of joy. Take a chance, it could change a/your life.
Cesar is now up for adoption. He is the world's most kind, gentle little dog. He's about a year old now and would make an excellent addition to any energetic household. You can apply to adopt him through this link: https://www.deitydogsandgoods.com/dogs
 
YAY so close the happy ending 😭 dogs are the sweetest creatures that can also just rip your heart out

1PW is a good product and I like that they offer this, but it makes my Ethics Alarm go off for anyone that covers this particular industry

Hey @VanityFair, why the hell do you need this persistent "read more" bar at the top of the screen when I'm only 1/4 of the way through the long-ish story I want to read? Between that and the login prompt, that's an awful lot of screen real estate I'd like back.

day three of excruciating self-promotion: just sold a book to my (lovely) neighbor as we were both picking up our dogs’ poops (http://Www.mike-Isaac.com baby!)
 
Is this gonna go on till September?
 
hello award-winning investigative reporter Rat King!
 
on a scale of 8 to 9, how hard has self-promoting been so far?
honestly can't tell if you're trolling or not
for the uninitiated, here's more background on the title: https://mikeisaac.substack.com/p/presenting-super-pumped-the-battle
hi everyone... after 18 months of reporting and writing, i am thrilled to present to you my book: “Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber” — coming to shelves Sept. 3rd. Available now for pre-order: http://www.Mike-Isaac.com
 
 
free copies for all your twitter followers right

Christchurch shooting happened less than a week ago, and New Zealand has already banned "military-style semiautomatic weapons and assault rifles." In six days. The right-leaning opposition party supported the measure. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/first-victims-of-christchurch-shootings-laid-to-rest-as-police-say-gun man-had-planned-another-attack/2019/03/20/fa76af1e-4ad6-11e9-b871-978e5c757325_story.html?utm_term=.a3adcee76964

i truly love the obsession with "the tool" in each iteration of this issue, whether it's Google+ circles or a new to-do app or a new social network like Peach... The primary value usually isn't in the tool itself — but the ability to simply start over again
 
I have zero idea why email newsletters have taken off, and this didn’t really help. My email is a mess and I don’t want more things coming into it....and I’m not even one of those people with 3,000 unread messages.
 
I will say that I get the benefit to a publisher - keeping more direct control / context with your audience is important. (And Mike’s piece got at that well.) But I don’t see how the end result is all that good for the reader.
luke had the best quote
i wrote about newsletters https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/19/technology/new-social-network-email-newsletter.html
 
Will you be distributing this in your next newsletter?
 
sometimes i think of every email i send to someone as a personalized newsletter, just for them
You know it was coming (or you didn't, that's also perfectly reasonable): my annual-ish musings on Apple's ever-shifting iPad lineup. https://www.engadget.com/2019/03/19/apple-ipad-air-seems-boring-but-i-want-one/
to be clear, this isn't a bad thing and is arguably good for consumers and how things should work (yesterday's breakthrough tech at lower prices today) the only thing it's not good for is companies that are trying to sell tablets to compete with the iPad.
Already regretting this one.
 
How many of @thedemocrats have the infrastructure to raise what they need online and be competitive? Which of @thedemocrats has the best technical infrastructure behind them?
two year old iPads are still so far ahead of the rest of the tablet market that Apple can just rummage around for old parts, cobble them together with a new processor, and then run laps around everyone else
 
as someone who wants something nicer than the base iPad but can't justify the cost of those Pros, I do have to say the Air is pretty compelling. The stuff it is lacking compared to the Pro mostly doesn't matter to me.
