Notification Windows

I just thought of this and suddenly it feels like a must have feature for me. Nowadays I have notifications activated on my iPhone for only two apps; iMessage and the phone. 97% of the use for those two apps is family updates and ‘logistics’ during the day. Everything else is deactivated, which is working […]

Writing Is The Most Scalable Professional Networking Activity

I found this thread by Andrew Chen super interesting so I thought I’d use it as a test for Darius Kazemi’s little tool, spooler. Works great! (Not sure why some tweets were regrouped in one paragraph and others not though…) I simply pasted from spooler to here and made some small tweaks. — After 10+ […]

Stalled

The problem with trying to write every day is that you need something to write about. Yes, technically people doing such a method usually say to just “sit and write” but I’m not trying to get in the habit of journaling [1], I’m trying to get better at writing [2] and restart a blogging habit. […]

Apple Car

It seems to be pretty much a done deal that Apple is working on a car and signs are pointing to something coming out in 2019. I haven’t paid that much attention to it but around the types of topics I’m interested in it’s pretty hard to not at least catch a glimpse of the […]

Weird Standards

For the last few years, when drinking coffee I’ve gone from mostly drinking lattes to mostly drinking “allongés” (long espressos). In that post latte phase, I didn’t pay attention much to foam / steamed milk density, quantity, and type. Things that 3rd wave coffee shops (where most of my coffee drinking occurs) are a bit […]

They Pull Me Back In Again

I’m writing this later than usual because I’ve been setting up my new iPhone 7. For the last two and a half years I was using a Nexus 5 with Android and liked it quite a bit, I had no real issues with it, other than the kind of shit camera, which is especially annoying […]

Life Timeline

I’ve had this idle thought in the back of my mind for a few weeks. Haven’t thought of it that much and I’ve certainly done no research but it’s come to mind regularly; a “life timeline app.” Kind of like those historical timelines where you see periods, how they overlap, when medieval times end, when […]

85 Days

A couple of weeks ago I read an article by Jory MacKay about what he was going to do with the last 99 days of the year. Two of the things he’ll do stood out; writing and mindfulness. Very unoriginal stuff for people who read productivity / creativity kind of blogs but still, very appropriate […]

Sixth Place Baby!

Forgot to post about this earlier. When attending Webcom 2 weeks ago one of the presenters mentioned Googling people which reminded me I hadn’t done so in a while so I Googled myself and… the whole first page for Patrick Tanguay is me, nothing new, I’ve had most of that page for a while but […]

Young’uns

You know in sports movies and tv shows when the young turk gets recruited and starts pushing the old veteran who’s set in his ways? Well Rémi was already having that effect on me, he’s learning quickly and will launch a webapp before me. Now Heri is doing the same, with his Montréal Tech Watch […]

That’s right, nothing in the inbox! Quite a few things in the kGTD todo but a good step done.

Goldfish and Parkinson’s

For the last while I’ve had a theory that I’ve mentioned to a few people and that I’ve been meaning to write about. I call it the Goldfish Theory. Supposedly, goldfish grow to a size related to where they are kept, small fishbowl, fish stays small, big pond, fish can get pretty big. I find […]

Favorite word of the week: FrieNDA “An agreement between friends to ‘non-disclose’ confidences without formal paperwork, such as an NDA.”

7 Songs

I’ve been tagged for yet another meme, almost didn’t do this one either because, frankly, I don’t listen to all that much music, or rather, I do but I don’t pay much attention to what’s happening at large and I just shuffle on my iPod so there’s not that much “enjoying lately”, except for one […]
