Lots of Food Things, Reading, and Bootstraps: Week #3

My favorite 10 things from this week in no particular order.

I read lots of articles these days (and other content) and as part of my morning pages, I write about them. In the spirit of selling my by-products, I’m compiling my favorite ten things from the week to further pollute your backlog.

  1. Chefling — A project management tool for your kitchen to help you eat healthier AND use all your food in the new year.
  2. Timestripe — My favorite way to visualize long term goals, hands down. I sometimes just open this app to ogle at the UI.
  3. Matter — This has miraculously overtaken my Remarkable as my favorite way to read articles. A stunning upset.
  4. Five Decades of Access to Tools — The first article in a series about our misguided obsession with tools has me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment.
  5. A Chemical Hunger — I think this easily my favorite article of all time. Another series that reads like a TV show.
  6. How we bootstrapped our open source Google Analytics alternative to $500k ARR — A fascinating behind the scenes look at a company just blasting off.
  7. Programming is Forgetting: Toward a New Hacker Ethic — One of the first critiques of hacker culture I’ve ever read. Even handed yet bold.
  8. Personal AI — I’m truly unsure of what to make of this one. A service that takes in everything you do and helps you sift through it with AI. Not sure if it’s creepy or revolutionary.
  9. How to Take Smart Notes — My favorite introduction to the Zettelkasten method (and I’ve read a lot of them).
  10. What if Git Worked With Programming Languages — An article ostensibly about a programming tool but that has far reaching consequences for how we use and understand tools in general.
