    @mcdemarco I admit that they hit my radar with less and less frequency as the months and years pass. I’ve been generally surprised and pleased by the Mac/iOS version of OneNote, though. // @morrick

        @morrick I thought essentially the same thing about Gillmor’s discussion of Apple and Google. It puzzles me that Apple gets flak for being a walled garden, but Google essentially gets a pass for its business model-driven transgressions.

          @kenleyneufeld It’s amazing how many details you don’t really think about until it’s migration/overhaul time. At least using one template will help. By the way, I heartily encourage the occasional bout of insanity. Sometimes it’s the only way.

            @kenleyneufeld Diagnosis: yeah, you’re insane.

              @ggirton Yeah, they’d have to do the Alien/Aliens thing, where the second movie doesn’t at all attempt to be like the first, but maintains continuity. My faith in the Hollywood machine’s ability to do that is low, but maybe they will pull it off.

                @oluseyi That really is hilarious. “Jesus. Gandhi. Me.”

                  I know everyone has to die, but I’m still sad to see Leonard Nemoy go. I learned a lot from Spock.

                    @danv2 I find it rather annoying, actually. I mean, I’ve been actually rooting for Microsoft to get their act together. That’s how desperate I am for Apple to have serious competition. Apple needs it as much as we consumers do.

                      @isaiah Recently… Mail: You have a new message from Apple sent to your developer account about the status of your app submission. I’ve thoughtfully put it in the Junk folder for you. Me: Um… Mail: What, you see something wrong with that?

                        @ggirton Yeah, um. No. I love, love, love Blade Runner, and I feel nothing but bad can come of a sequel featuring Harrison Ford. I’d love to be proven wrong, of course.

                          @fmll3 So what is Influencie about?

                            @jeremycherfas That’s where I am. The tools can either serve me practically or ideologically, and for various reasons practicality wins for me.

                              @danv2 It’s like they’re incapable of learning.

                                @isaiah I disagree with all those people. It’s gonna cost $9,999.99.

                                  Not my path, but I have great respect for Dan Gillmor, and he makes some strong points: https://medium.com/backchannel/why-i-m-saying-goodbye-to-apple-google-and-microsoft-78af12071bd
