Highlights from this week’s 37signals staff posts at Twitter.
@jasonfried: There’s a two-week-or-less version of just about everything.
@jamis: gah, another email announcing a “webinar”. That word just gives me the creeps.
@JZ: “Without great solitude no serious work is possible.” — Pablo Picasso
@rjs: NPR guests are so frequently “struck by” things that they should start wearing helmets and armor inside the studio.
@jasonfried: With every call being recorded for quality assurance purposes you’d think call center quality would be improving.
@dhh: There’s something uniquely calming about shredding stuff. Paper be gone!
@uptonic: New saddle has titanium rails and carbon undersides, but carries an “enthusiast” label. Man, cycling is serious these days.
@jasonfried: “Easy” is a word that’s used to describe other people’s jobs.
@rjs: The Financial Times’ iPhone app is also extremely well executed. FT makes NYT’s well-known apps look clunky and overdone.
@jamis: My 8yo: “Really? They speak English in Canada? I didn’t even know people lived there!” Sorry, neighbors!
@jsierles: Lacking the tools to cleanse your soul? Clean house. Give stuff away. On its way out, remind yourself why you didnt need most of that stuff.
@asianmack: Some friends say there is no subculture anymore. Internet killed them. That’s so untrue. Just too old to know what these new kids are up to.
@rjs: I’m gonna wear out the Kindle’s highlight function on Sowell’s “Conflict of Visions.”
