Wed Apr 23, 11:50PM: In other news @nikobenson's new piggy bank has officially triggered his external motivations. His first job ever: set the table for 3 cents.
Wed Apr 23, 11:46PM: Still true: https://t.co/S0CcWzCNK6
Wed Apr 23, 11:45PM: Just realized it's my 1-year anniversary of transitioning to a PM role at Twitter. The stuff we work on is just getting better and better.
Wed Apr 23, 08:16AM: @toddsherman I haven't, I'll check it out. This is from Creativity, Inc.
Wed Apr 23, 08:07AM: "Find, develop, and support good people and they will in turn find, develop, and own good ideas." - @edcatmull
Wed Apr 23, 08:03AM: "Too many of us think of ideas as being singular, as if they float in the ether fully formed, independent of the ppl who wrestle with them."
Wed Apr 23, 07:46AM: @arainert Yeah, that makes more sense.
Wed Apr 23, 07:44AM: @arainert No.
Wed Apr 23, 07:44AM: @maggim @superanne "I would give my life to save the brand." "I would kill a man." "I have a brand tattoo."
Wed Apr 23, 07:41AM: @arainert All of them have the same content issues. My only workable solution is to keep them all and hope 1 has the show/movie I want.
Wed Apr 23, 07:38AM: @arainert That's true if and only if you and others actually do cancel. What's your best alternative?
Wed Apr 23, 07:35AM: @arainert But there is no straight-forward path. Everyone is trying to maintain exclusive rights to the best content.
Wed Apr 23, 07:05AM: @arainert True but that's how you dismantle an entrenched industry. Pick away from the bottom til the top can't hold.
Wed Apr 23, 06:53AM: @jayholler Because Apple would take 30%, right?
Tue Apr 22, 11:18PM: @ingopixel Such a good documentary!

8:36pm Sharon, Ian, Sean, burgers, beer
Tue Apr 22, 07:09PM: @jasoncosta Yes! Loved that too! It's extra good to hear it all in Ed's words too. The Steve Jobs stuff especially.
Tue Apr 22, 06:54PM: So far loving @edcatmull's book. Pixar should make a film about its own history... plenty of plot twists and wacky characters.
Tue Apr 22, 12:08AM: @tonystubblebine If failure isn't disastrous then it's merely iteration/experimentation. Fast iteration > fast failure.
Tue Apr 22, 12:04AM: On team @nrrrdcore.

Mon Apr 21, 07:34PM: @joshm I'm drawing a complete blank. Everything feels rather predictable lately.
Mon Apr 21, 07:49AM: @cay_anchor It must be a bug. Have you written in to support about it?

Sat Apr 19, 08:01PM: @jfew I'd be into that. I read them like candy.
Sat Apr 19, 08:01PM: @rrhoover It is a lot of money. Do you think he/she is flexible? If so, make your best offer that you're willing to pay.
Sat Apr 19, 09:30AM: @mathowie @ev Great! I plan on doing the audiobook too. 45 minute walk+BART commute each day gets me through lots of books.
Sat Apr 19, 09:06AM: Is Ed Catmull's book Creativity Inc worth reading?
Sat Apr 19, 08:39AM: I did a podcast with @danesanders about @750words and other stuff. Check it out! http://t.co/H26z1NIZKg
Fri Apr 18, 08:42PM: @aunder Happy early birthday, twitterversary, and vacation!
Fri Apr 18, 08:40PM: @RickWebb And it still seems like magic.

In the last 14 days, I've posted 45 posts and photos. Mostly to Twitter, Flickr, 750 Words Status
Since I started writing online in October of 1999, about 14.55 years ago, I've posted 43,629 bits of nonsense. Yeah. And the problem is only getting worse.
Three of my favorite projects
For the last 2,162 days, at 8:36pm, I have taken a picture of what I'm doing. It's sort of a weird obsessive photo project that I plan to do for the rest of my life. You should do it too, it's fun. (here are some other people who are doing this)
About about 9 hours ago, I said, "8:36pm Was drinking whiskey and finishing up Monument Valley. It all made me strangely anxious."
