Really, Google? This is how you choose to enhance Gmail — by plugging your “wallet” product? Terrible. http://t.co/zMgFU9FUkm

I used my phone to help someone find a bankruptcy court. I wonder how long it’ll be before that sort of thing impacts my own credit rating.

Making an app with a new tech stack is hard with iffy connectivity. Shows how deeply I depend on the Web to learn on the fly. (I ♥ the Web!)

Packing for tomorrow’s move, came across this. Sadly the records are all cracked. Any reason not to just toss it? http://t.co/zinmlELuUA

FaceTime is so great.

Huh, another day wherein I didn’t get around to working on my expense reports. Shocker.

I’m happy with this commitgithub.com/aviflax/3thing…f0 — I think it shows how a well-structured codebase can lower the cost of adding features.

I’m impressed by the tweaks Apple is making to Swift. They demonstrate flexibility, attention to detail & usability. developer.apple.com/swift/blog/?id…

You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Just used talky.io for a NY⟷Berlin chat wit@klangberaterer — a little choppy but promising. I’m still psyched about WebRTC!

I’m fasting today; it’s a traditional Jewish fast day but also a “hunger strike against violaviflax.com/post/fasting-t…5#HungryForPeaceForPeace

Fasting Today

I’m fasting today — both because it’s a traditional Jewish fast day and as part of a “hunger strike against violence” wherein some Jews and Muslims around the world are dedicating today’s traditional fasts (for the 17th of Tammuz and Ramadan) to end the conflict between Israel and Palestinians. There are a few different Facebook events and Internet campaigns for this idea, so I’m not sure where it started, but I find it compelling. I’ve felt powerless to do anything meaningful about the situation, and prayer is tough for me these days, but fasting — that I can do.
