A Way Back From That Hurt

roxanegay:

It has rained all day. It is dark outside. I don’t mind. It seems appropriate.

I wrote an essay for The New York Times about the beach. It’s humor. I mention this because I have already received an e-mail, from a stranger, explaining to me why I am wrong about the beach. Thank you.

Here is…

Whoa. Just..whoa.

A Candid Look at Unread's First Year

jaredsinclair:

To my knowledge, indie developers don’t publish the kind of numbers that you’ll find in this post. My sales records are none of your business, as the saying quite literally goes. The question in your mind will no doubt be why am I writing this at all? It’s a fair question. Before I answer it,…

A painful look at the realities of developing apps that don’t involve recurring revenue streams.

Get to Know Two Factor Authentication

missiondata:

No matter how complicated your passwords are or how well you’re storing them, you have to trust that the site you’re using is doing security correctly. If they’re not, your password could be leaked out onto the Internet, where any evil villain could use your credentials for no good. In fact, in most cases, you should probably just assume that every password you have will be stolen at some point.

It’s not all bad news though.

High Fivery – The Pastry Box Project

A thoughtful post from Greg Hoy on how we can be significantly impacted by positive feedback, compliments and other forms of showing appreciation.

Sigh. Still waiting for the gift from a generous uncle or benevolent patrona that allows us to build our cabin.

So! Excited!

thinkupapp:

The exclamation point is perhaps the most powerful of all punctuation marks. Excitement, anger, outrage and love can all be emphasized with it. Want to amplify emotions even more? Throw in another one. Two periods don’t increase the dullness of a sentence but two exclamation points? Next level…

This will make me post !!! now.

Your Free ThinkUp Trial

thinkupapp:

We get mail (and tweets and Facebook posts). The most common topic of all that mail and other communication is a request for a free trial of ThinkUp. People are excited and interested in ThinkUp but want to take the service out for a spin before they put their money down. That’s a reasonable…

If you’re active on Twitter and/or Facebook you should check out the free trial of ThinkUp to see what awesomeness I spend my days working on.
