Nelson has ramen, a French bakery, amazing street musicians, 4 breweries, a beautiful lake, amazing mountain biking, a ski hill, and a wonderfully excessive amount of tie dye. 😍

FaceID doesn’t recognize me when I’m stuffing my face with a bagel. Soon it will learn that this is the real me.

Baroness von sketch show on is so under appreciated. Probably the funniest tv coming out of Canada right now.

Would love this, but I’m not back in Vancouver until September. One coffee per PR? 😉

I'd like to see more products being developed with a normative idea at its core - i.e., an idea of what constitutes good communication, and then use technology to encourage good habits. How often does it feel like products make us better people?

. is taking the problem of us being kinda shitty at messaging and using technology to try and improve it. So cool!

A few months ago, I wrote a short tutorial explaining the same strategy. It really is immensely powerful and will change how you write React components.

Thanks dylan. Any case recommendations? I've actually never used a case for any of my previous iPhones, but they seem to be more and more delicate with each revision. My 4 was bullet proof.

iPhone X it'll be, I think. Are you using a case?

Just shattered my iPhone 6 screen so I guess it's finally time to upgrade. Anyone using the iPhone X? I'm open to Android, as well, given some of the annoyances I've had with Apple lately.

Is anyone else having major problems with iMessage? I rarely get notifications. My messages are all out of order. I've had issues with this going on almost a year, now...

Ingmar Bergman was one of Roger’s favorite directors, and this November, will be releasing a 39-film box set of his timeless work. Here are the films in Roger's own words:

I consider myself a "self-taught" developer, but it's a bit of a misnomer. I relied on countless stackoverflow posts, blog posts and tutorials, open source examples, and collab w/ others. "Self-taught" is only possible because of the immense resources others have made available.
