life, one tiny update at a time

The Playdate has finally arrived about two years after ordering. I’m not a gamer, but looking forward to taking this on a trip next week. Thoughts to come…

First time my hotel room includes at little “tea nook”? Did I just coin that? Shenzhen JW Marriott.

Next stop: PEK (for a work event this week)

Also while on podcasts, I came across a list of the best podcasts on the media biz. If you’re interested, you can find the list here: I can personally vouch for numbers 11 and 12.

While on the topic of recommended podcasts, check out the new show Search Engine. It’s hosted by PJ Vogt of Reply/All fame. In particular, the two part series on fentanyl is well done. Find it here:

Gut-wrenching images of Kelowna, an otherwise spectacular city in Canada filled with friends and family. The fires seem to get worse every summer…

I am slowly getting annoyed by how often the word “immersive” is thrown around, to the point it has basically lost meaning. How could a 5 inch screen be immersive?! #pedant #grrr

I’m not *that guy*, but received this as a Christmas gift this past year. I actually love it more than I thought I would!

Live streaming studio nearly done. Looks like a teenager’s bedroom.

This is, without a doubt, one of the best gifts I’ve received in the last decade or more. Love it.
