Apple hates you

Decisions we don't understand are often not as personal as we imagine.

Habits

I'm re-examining how I use my to-do list. Also, I explain how to remove "ummm" from your speech.

Marzipan Rebroadcast

Here's a repost of what I am hoping to see from the Marzipan project as a whole.

Teaching materials have to focus on the pedagogy and not get lost in the example.

Your Shot

What do you do when you don't get that job you really, really want?

News Plus

I think I was looking at Apple's new magazine offering all wrong. It may not be for regular magazine readers.

Pause to let things settle. We see it in the kitchen as well as in our daily life.

Pause

My first word of the year is 'Pause'.

Elvis

Sometimes we forget what we were going to say.

Public

Celebrating ten years of teaching iPhone and Mac programming.

Words

Sometimes you start using phrases without realizing why.
