Craving seems to be a weak version of the feeling you'd get if the desire was fulfilled. An itch feels a bit like a scratch. Thirst makes you salivate. Lust...

If a Big Box store makes you walk through a thirty-foot winding tunnel of junk food, candy and sugar to get to the checkout, it's a pretty clear sign they don't care about you. Stop shopping there.

I'm making a list of the things I would devote my time, skills, and energy to if I didn't have to worry about money. And then I'm going to start doing those things, money be damned.

When 'moving on' isn't moving on but is actually just buying a bit of peace now at the cost of burying the friction you're trying to avoid inside of you. That's a buy now pay later plan—with high interest rates. Living debt free is not 'fighting back' it's just being skillful.

"As with all tech, whether it's a blessing or curse depends on how it's used." No. That's the myopic view that McLuhan tried to correct sixty years ago. The Medium is the Message. Whether a website delivers porn or philosophy is tangental to how the web reshapes human existence.

if something can't fit on a smartphone it usually doesn't get made anymore. imagine if the only books we had were those miniature bibles that fit in the palm of your hand; the things that would never have been said.

another intel security patch for macOS this morning. it's worth repeating: if Porsche sold a car based on performance and then realized that producing all that power had created a huge safety problem and the car needed to be throttled by 20%, would customers just suck it up?

Thought experiment in the wake of yet another Intel security flaw: If Mercedes sold a car based on performance and then realized that producing all that power created a huge safety problem and the car needed to be throttled by 30% what would consumers do? Just suck it up?

The 'community' newspaper is 8 pages of local news you can get online wrapped in 250 pages of ads and flyers. They drop it on my doorstep, I pick it up and throw it directly in the recycling bin. Why is this allowed to happen in 2019?

Bob Dylan was making folk rap in the sixties. Those early tracks were the ground zero of hip hop.

Snapchat streaks is like heroin for kids. Was there not a single suit in the boardroom who had the moral backbone to stand up and say maybe this isn't right ?

"I had the privilege of undertaking the first (and now the last..) study on the spire of Notre Dame since 1933. ... It was one oak trunk ... Everything in the roof was antique wood. Anyone that went into the roof was paranoid of fire."

I don't think it's possible for us to really grasp what a cathedral must have felt like 800 years ago.
