Things I like

  • Invisibilia, a new podcast from NRP, covering the hidden world that influences us. Episode 2 hit quite close to home and worth a listen.
  • Pinboard.in, private bookmarking. I have started to use it more heavily as Evernote has started to slow down and feel bloated in recent iterations. I am also enjoying [Pinner](Pinner for Pinboard) on my iPhone an iPad, particularly with the “Quick Pin” feature. It makes saving things to Pinboard a breeze.
  • Slack, group chat service. I have been using it heavily at work and find it to be delightful. I have also joined a “water-cooler” group, which always has interesting gifs and links.
  • Hobonichi Techo, a beautiful paper planner. I saw it mentioned on various websites last year, so I decided to take the plunge. I am using it as a daily log of things that were great, or not so great. I had been on the fence about using it in that manner, because I didn’t have great way to put pictures I take with my phone into it until I found the next item.
  • The Zink Printer is an inkless sticker printer. It prints from rolls of adhesive backed paper with the inks loaded into it. The iPhone app leaves more than a little to be desired, but it allows me to translate my digital photos into physical memories. It is a perfect companion to my Fujitsu ScanSnap (Note: Not the exact model I have, but it appears that my model is no longer for sale.)
