Spent some time in Berlin, was great to see all my friends there again! Then I finally stopped running around – I have 5 days of peace before I leave for South America. Getting in some focus time and some gym time.
Getting close to shipping my workshop! Sent it out for a last round of feedback that has been pretty positive.
Fixed a bug in my performance tests on iOS, which was super fun. Caused by random numbers and dividing by zero. Also fixed a small UX thing, will send out a new build soon.
Did my first bit of work for a startup I’m contracting for. Exciting!
We announced our next Technically Speaking webinar.
Watching Gossip Girl (starting season 3), and loving it so much! Still working on Thinking in Systems, and The Sleep Book (week 4 of 5). Novel-wise – reading The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.
