Everything In Its Right Place

parislemon:

My quest to write 500 words a day has really gone off the rails recently. It was always an ambitious goal, but I also sort of set it up for failure by not designating a time each day to write. So I found myself scrambling at the end of each and every day to get 500 words up. As I’m finally figuring out with email, everything happens more smoothly if you designate a time to do it and stick with it.

And a place.

The other problem with the 500 word goal was that this site simply didn’t seem like a great place for it. You see, I run this site on Tumblr. And while Tumblr is amazing for many things, it’s not particularly well-suited for longer-form writing. Yes, even just 500 words. The text box that pops open when you set out to do a text post says all you need to know: keep it short.

Americans Now Spend More Time on Digital Devices Than on TV 

Adults in the U.S. are averaging five hours and nine minutes daily with digital media, up from four hours and 31 minutes last year and three hours and 50 minutes in 2011. The amount of time they spend watching TV has essentially stayed flat in that time period. 
The surge in digital consumption has predictably been driven by mobile. U.S. adults now spend an average of two hours and 21 minutes per day using their mobile devices for activities other than phone calls, up 46 minutes from last year.

Oregon’s new football facility is absolutely insane.

Behold, the power of Nike. If Oregon can’t land the top recruiting class every year now, something is wrong. Not sure how any other school can compete with this.

How they compete? Spend more money. So focus more money on things that have nothing to do with education.  Grrrrrreat. That’s going to solve our education problem in this country.

Calm down, Scott. We launched a Tumblr blog, not Microsoft.

Perfect response.

Another word of warning for app designers/developers.  You don’t have many chances to get it right.

There a big “just do something” camp in business, but this suggests that putting some thought in is important before “just doing.”

For a dude, heaven is walking into work and seeing two 55” HDTVs waiting to be installed. Oh yeah.

The 5K group. Found a nemesis that will motivate me to run faster. Some dude that I just don’t like the way he looks. I’m going to kick his butt. (Taken with instagram)
