After July 1, I stopped being a Google Reader user because Google shut it down. For those of you who don’t remember Google Reader, it was an RSS feed aggregator.

Remodeled in an elegantly succinct style that’s far more European than preppy, it’s still nonetheless his kind of place: the double living room is designed for hobnobbing, the dining table stands ready for a crowd, and every room is filled with family mementos, a pair of water skis included. What’s more...

Smartphones and mental illness: observations from Cal Newport's Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World

From Cal Newport's new book: Digital Minimalism:"Eliminating solitude also introduces new negative repercussions that we're only now beginning to understand. A good way to investigate a behavior's effect is to study a population that pushes the behavior to an extreme. When it comes to constant connectivity, these extremes are readily apparent among young people born after 1995--the first group to enter their preteen years with access to smartphones, tablets, and persistent internet interconnect...

Alternative Income Update: March 2019

It’s past the middle of the month and that means I have the numbers (and time to process them) for last month’s alternative income. This month I’m doing something a little different. The software engineer in me extracted 90% of the 2500 words that give background information each month and put them in a FAQ. For now, I’m including the FAQ in the beginning of the article.
