  • Saturday, reading, nap, gym, sunset promenade walk, watched Enemy Mine (1985) again – I watched this more than once as a child, somebody must have had this on VHS tape at some point.
  • a16z – Meaning in Products, Business, Life. The search for meaning. Curiosity creates meaning.
  • Sunday, moar backups, exported 17k photos for Mia – all Mia’s photos from 2005 – she asked for photos on her laptop, gym, made a big bacon and eggs breakfast for lunch, afternoon franeuring walk through Green Point Park, flushed my Pocket reading queue (of 66 articles), sunset walk, zaatar humus shopping, blogging with a Singleton, time well spent.
  • My full digital footprint from the last 20 years fits in just over 1TB… the stuff I care to keep, mostly photos and email backups.
  • Podcast queue zero, audible zero, pocket zero.
  • I deleted all the time wasting apps off my phone again – I pretty much just have my RSS and podcast app to keep me entertained now.

Have a fun week, crazy kids.
