Joshua Specter linked to a post in his newsletters saying When You Follow Someone New On Social Media, Post About It

Let’s say you find someone interesting to follow on social media.
Awesome. Now, spread the word about them.

And today, Spained-based tech and short story writer Riccardo Mori, pointed me to Mr. Mobile Michael Fisher

So there’s two to start with.

The Redskins have done the unthinkable and lost Washington – The Washington Post

Washington has discovered that champions can live here. So why tolerate, let alone support, an atrociously run and constantly embarrassing franchise with a moral compass that is as twisted as a corkscrew?

Perfectly sums it up. Capitals won the Stanley Cup in 2018. The Mystics won the WNBA Championship this year. The Nationals won the World Series this year. The Redskins can’t score a touchdown.

‘Improving daily work is even more important than doing daily work.’

I think about this quote a lot. This book confirmed a lot about what I think about work and working better. It also taught me some things I wish I had the power to implement.

I feel like I’ve written about this before – can’t remember whether it was here or not, but when trillion-dollar companies complain that things are “hard”, what they really mean is that they “do not want to do them” or that they are “not that important”, or perhaps more tellingly, that “there is no [perceived] profit in doing it”. Because, lest we forget, Google is a company that went from zero to having a gigantic fleet of sensor-laden cars driving around every single road in as many countries as they could, just so you could look at shops and the less said about having more data to sell ads against, the better.

Dan is talking about using Maps to find the safest route home. That’s a problem Maps can’t do for me yet. For all of the smart tools available to us, most of them aren’t very smart at all.
