#AFK: Last Week’s Edition

While I was #AFK (away from keyboard)…

  • Where I’m at: Mexico City
  • What’s next: Whistler, Canada for Automattic company-wide meet-up
  • What I’ve been doing: 
  • Things I’ve been reading / watching / listening to:
    • Handmaid’s Tale: I’m not a TV person, but after watching one episode, can tell this is a series I’ll finish
    • The News: A User Manual by Alain de Botton: This read similar to Religion for Atheists (e.g., he lays out an ideal newspaper similar to laying out an ideal non-religious religion), and it made me reflect on my own news consumption (and ways I can be more moderate than this)
  • Quotes I’ve been underlining:
    •  Huxley (Brave New World) wrote Orwell (1984) to congratulate him on his book and in his letter included the following: “Within the next generation I believe that the world’s leaders will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging them and kicking them into obedience.”
  • Thoughts I’ve been thinking:
    • I really should put more effort into learning a second language (e.g., more than a few minutes on duolingo)
    • And why isn’t Snapseed on desktop?
  • What I’ve been seeing:
