The news media schadenfreude on today’s Facebook hearings is palpable and, to me, off-putting. Clean up the spy/adware scripts bloating your news websites and then talk to me about privacy.

Watched Paddington 2 with the family for the second time in two weeks. It’s such a lovely, gentle, enjoyable film. Perfect family entertainment.

Tried Veracruz All Natural today. The chicken mole enchiladas were amazing and everything else I saw looked great too.

The Facebook/Cambridge Analytics revelations are frustrating, but I’m having a hard time mustering anger. This has been their business model for years, and there are remedies to their data collection. Not so with the NSA.

I’ve been designing from Components out on the product I’ve been working on for a couple months. I’m rediscovering one of the dangers of this approach. There can be great components in a mess of an overall layout.

Had a vegan baking contest with the kids yesterday. No-bake fudge brownies vs cinnamon rolls. The results were delicious. This is the kind of contest nobody loses.

I’m really enjoying cycling and feel like I’m getting stronger, but I think I need to take some more pictures on my rides.

It’s been about a week since I somewhat accidentally stopped checking Twitter, although I still crosspost there, and life is… quieter and less stressful.

Had my first cycling mid-ride mechanical failure tonight. I’m just relieved it has nothing to do with the new stem I put on today.

How you can tell that there’s no going back from cycling? When your riding clothes are nicer than anything else you ever wear.

Every once in a while the difference between a design and the implemented front-end that should have resulted make me hang my head.

Went to get a better seat for my bike. Apparently measuring sit bones is a thing that people do.

(2/2) I really like the Google Home, but it would be nice to be able to use Apple Music and do smart home commands without finding my phone. Enter the HomePod. This is truly the stupidest/most frustrating platform war right now.

(1/2) I’m excited about the HomePods shipping soon. I’m pretty happy integrating my smart home stuff with a centralized system like HomeKit. The biggest issue is cost. I can have the Google Assistant in 7 rooms for the cost of 1 HomePod.

Saw something on YouTube recently where some folks chose In-N-Out over Shake Shack. I couldn't believe it so got In-N-Out for lunch to remind myself. It’s fine, but better than Shake Shack? No way.

I’m not sure what the right way for an elected official to say, “thank you for you input, but I disagree” in a reply to a constituent is, but the letters I’ve gotten back from Senator Cruz’s office are not it.
