The moment you know how fully you've been colonized by Twitter, or Slack, or other social media platforms is when you find yourself unconsciously hitting Shift-Enter instead of Enter when you're typing in a doc or text editor.

Put The Clay That Woke in character+discover.


Was browsing bookmarks from more than a dozen years ago and found this quote from Clay Shirky:

"[Y]ou will make more accurate predictions about software and — in this web drive world — about services if you ask yourself not 'what’s the business model?', but rather...
@paulczege Hey, don't leave us hanging!

Have you seen the Carewave Manifesto @Threadbare?



@paulczege Congratulations! That's awesome!

I just backed Advertising Shits in Your Head - the book on @Kickstarter

"Daddy, I think my throat is a waterslide for The Littles."

With certain outcomes it turns out you have a super power. You roll to see what it is. Over the past few days he's suggested a few more to add:
