Achievement unlocked. Nerd level++

Modular mechanical keyboard arrived, with a set of switches (“best guess”) and a sample pack of all the types so I can see if I want to change things up. (with aura keycaps)

If you’re curious what using Android (green) does to your privacy (blue), @samsung created this helpful gif. Thanks Samsung.

Now that I’m going back into GT a few days week, its Soylent for lunch more often! I just ran out, but thankfully a new shipment arrived.

As they say in The Matrix, “Everything the body needs”

Today on zoom, the combo of my DLSR-for-webcam and the “slight change” to my hair color looked pretty good, I think. (Bonus: I taught the first class of my fall Computer Graphics class today)

let the craziness begin. I’m still mostly on leave at GT so won’t be on-campus very much. I’m thinking about holding an office hour each week in hubs. Here you see two screens shared into a hubs room (one, a web page on my desktop; one the screen of my ipad running OneNote)

I’m enjoying the Morning Brew mailing list; quick hits on money, business and the world, mixed with some humor. Top was amusing today. join here

Teaching Intro to Computer Graphics at @georgiatech starting next week, so I thought it would be appropriate to make my hair look synthetically rendered

My son pointed me at the Glorious PC Gaming Race mice and keyboards. I’m very much enjoying the mice (cheaper than other high end gaming mice, good feel, clean design); keyboard backordered.

First day of school for the kids, my son is starting high school, so we’ve decided to retire the middle-school lunchbox. Rest in peace, old friend

Comedy meets real life. MSR researchers did a study where you receive prompts/alerts to write small bits of text during the day, and people would accomplish a lot of writing. (

Dorking around with @ByHubs, plugged in my iPad to the Mac, started a screen recording (don’t need to hit record) and shared that window. Run OneNote on the iPad and voila, instant pen-based whiteboard.

Considering doing some remote office hours in hubs this fall

Not drinking booze right now, been looking into “mocktails”, esp ones that aren’t glorified soda or fruit juice (ie, boring, sugary). Discovered @SeedlipDrinks … amazing. Not cheap, but cheaper than good booze!

In honor of our campus visit to @SFU with our daughter, I’m listening to some of the best pipe music I have on my phone
