    Watching the DNC roll call vote, and negativity from the disruptions yesterday are starting to fade away. Democracy is pretty great.

      Reading a lot of political coverage lately, finally got tired of the New York Times paywall and subscribed. If I pay for tech blogs and ESPN Insider, might as well pay for “real” news too.

        Only the most hardcore Bernie supporters are at the convention. The delegates on the floor still want a contested convention, going against Bernie’s own wishes, and they don’t represent most supporters.

          Stunning to watch the GOP convention turn into a mob tonight as Chris Christie spoke. I wonder how many undecided voters they scared off.

            GOP convention on TV tonight. I’ll be watching the NBA Summer League final game on ESPN2 instead.

              Not shocked that Swift classes won’t be subclassable by default. But it underscores Swift’s priorities. And for that reason, I’m out.

                Backed the new Glif on Kickstarter. Love the idea of multiple tripod mounts. Also some nice shots of Austin in the Kickstarter video. (Hoping for a new episode of Thoroughly Considered this month with more backstory on the project.)

                  I’m sure you can download these games on the Wii’s Virtual Console, but I want the NES Classic anyway. Convenience + old-school NES controllers is a win. We already have one of these for Pac-Man games too and the kids love it.

                    On the latest Core Int, we talk about Pokémon, building a brand, Mickey Mouse, pre-announcing my microblog product, the open web, and more.

                      Taking the train downtown to work today. Pretty sure if I stayed home I’d be watching ESPN all day and reloading news sites about Tim Duncan. Just gotta avoid searching Twitter hashtags.

                        This photo I took a few months ago is worth a re-post. Happy to have been able to see Tim in the finals and playoffs the last few years. I should’ve gone to more games, especially earlier in his career.

                          Tim Duncan retiring. One of the all-time greats. And he went out with a strong game: 19 points on 50% shooting, and the best +/- of anyone on the Spurs in game 6, nearly coming back to beat OKC. Congratulations on an amazing career.
