I was trying to wait until tonight to watch the Apple event, since I’m buried in work. But I’m a weak, weak man.
I finally got around to reading Shoe Dog. I coincidentally started it a day before the Kaepernick ad campaign dropped. I figured it would be good, but I was surprised by what a page-turner it was. I never realized how many times the wheels almost came off of Nike. 📚
Shuck, sauce, slurp, smile.
Sunflowers in the city. Providence, RI.
Pokémon Go game face.
I just finished Trapped Under the Sea. I’m not sure how I missed this when it happened, since I lived in Boston and read newspapers obsessively at the time. It’s a harrowing story with some fascinating engineering and management dynamics mixed in. 📚
Happy Father’s Day!
“Basketball’s easy now that I’m six.” 😂
Disappointing end to a fun ride with the Celtics this season. This team is going to be good for a while. 🏀
The fact that Ghostery leaked out my personal email address while sending their GDPR mass email is too funny to annoyed about.
The poor Del’s Lemonade guys pulled over to fix their broken truck and were immediately swarmed by my family.
Two trade shows in the span of a few weeks is kind of rough when you’re introvert.
That Celtics / Sixers finish was so good by both teams. (Though I’m glad the right team came out on top.) 🏀
Me: “Why are you crying?” Milo:“I got GUACAMOLE IN MY EYE!!! 😭” (Cinco de Mayo problems)
Taste-testing the ice cream offerings in our new town.
Hayley is pleased that the worst of the house move is over, so she can return to her regularly daily schedule.
Looking forward to a Celtics / Sixers playoff series. Just like old times. 🏀
As byproduct of my upcoming home move, I’m leaving my longtime coworking space. I was the first ever member, so I’m feeling a little whistful leaving for the last time. Long live the “Doug Out”.
Downtown Boston bounced back nicely after a rainy start.
The good news: three freelance clients I’ve been chasing for two months all signed contracts at the end of last week. The bad news: this week is 🤯 with information overload about three very different products.
It’s a strange work week. We’re still living in our current house, but I am “commuting” to my home office in our new house.
A $3 cup of coffee feels like a bargain when immediately preceded by spending $5 to send a fax.
This NBA court database that Kottke linked to is amazing. It literally catalogues minor design changes to the floor at the Hartford Civic Center, where the Celtics played a few games a year up until the mid-90s. 🏀
Like any responsible person embroiled in a complex home sale and multi-state move while without a consistent source of income, I impulse purchased a HomePod today. It’s exceeding my expectations so far.
