1. The One Ring Startup [Link]

    February 12, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    This is Jason Kottke at his best. It's not just a link to something interesting. He takes something already compelling and reframes it to make it more important and more thought provoking.

    Those were dark times...the power of the startup had just been lost after Kozmo's CEO ...

  2. Podcasting Ebb, Flow and Overflow

    February 11, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    It was a terrific run. From the very first (and very awkward) episode of Generational with David Sparks to the final episode 80 of Technical Difficulties with Dr. Drang, I enjoyed making podcasts with all of my friends, heroes and inspirations. I got a chance to make something I'm ...

  3. Meeting Notes, Molotov Lite and Arrogant Bastard [Link]

    February 11, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Taking notes is hard enough. Taking notes during meetings can be a real pain. Jeff and I discuss our techniques and shortcomings during the latest episode of Nerds on Draft. We also drink two fantastic and wildly different IPAs. Ever wonder what a good "Lite" beer would be like? We ...

  4. HoudahSpot 4 Available Now

    HoudahSpot Logo

    A very nice upgrade to HoudahSpot is out now. Version 4 adds a significant visual improvement and a few nice functional tweaks. The upgrade was only $17 and I think it's worth it for such a powerful searching tool. It's certainly easier to use than previous versions. If ...

  5. Origin Stories [Link]

    February 09, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Here's a neat project I was graciously asked to participate in. It's a series of very short interview posts about where Internet personas come from. Check out the archive. I really like the concept and the progress of the collection.

  6. Mark Addresses and Swipe Options in Mail.app for iOS

    February 05, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    If you use Mail.app for iOS with several different mail accounts, here are two settings that are very useful.


    Mark Addresses

    This is a less commonly known option. Go into the Mail settings and look at the "Mark Addresses" option. Setting a domain here will cause the iOS Mail ...

  7. Master Keys and Gate Keepers

    February 05, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Clark Goble has a nice reminder up about remapping the Caps Lock key on the Mac. You should read it if that's your cup of tea.

    I don't jump through so many hoops, but I do remap my Caps Lock key to be a right mouse click. Sure ...

  8. I've Switched to 1Password for Two Factor Authentication

    February 05, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I've only used the iOS app Authy for a few months. If you are unfamiliar, it is a very nice application for managing different two factor authentication secrets and generating tokens. It creates a single place to look for all 2FA tokens.1 There's also a companion Authy ...

  9. What It's Like to Run Your Own Brewery [Link]

    February 04, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I think there are some nice parallels between between opening a brewery and developing an app. There are clearly large differences. Brewers have infrastructure costs in the $100,000 range and working in a coffee shop will get you arrested.

    But this, from Andrew Nations, really caught my attention as ...

    February 04, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    If you're into URL schemes, there's a minor update to the specification that now lists security concerns as well as new parameter for canceling an action.
