Wednesday Scrapple 1

I’ve been sharing a lot of links and such lately so I figured I’d try one of these Scrapple posts that Colin introduced me to.  Here we go!

I’ll do a bigger write up on this (eventually), but every Tuesday you can pick up the OnePlus One without an invite. I absolutely love everything about this phone. You should check it out. [#]

My co-worker Craig created a neat new WordPress plugin that will map your Instagram photos. I will be using it to map where I’ve smoked cigars. [#]

I’m trying to sell my Google Glass for $600. That’s less than 1/2 the price. So far, there have been no bites. However, a 3 pack of notebooks went for $950 on eBay. Original price? $10. Supply & Demand man. It’s crazy.

Uber is now in Scranton. This makes me incredibly happy. It will be very nice to have it in a few months (but more on that later 🙂 ). [#]

I have 4 side projects I want to work on between now and June. I’ve made a timeline/matrix thingy. I will post more about that later, but it’s the first time I’m trying it.

I’ve been using Unmark for bookmarks lately. You should give it a try. I really dig it. [#]

Workflow, Responsible Responsive Design, And More Friday Links

I have already come across a few things this morning that I’ve wanted to share out, so it seems a short blog post is in order!

  • Profession Workflows & Best Practices | WPSessionsBrian over at WPSessions is hosting a free seminar on best practices for development and you shouldn’t miss it! It’s going to be a great learning opportunity for anyone, whether you’re new, a freelancer, or work with these tools every day. I can’t wait for this one!
  • Pixact.ly: This is a fun little game that shows you how well you can eyeball pixel values. I’m just OK. How do you measure up?
  • Sleeping Position by Profession: Funny and pretty accurate from my experience.
  • Story.AM: This service that’s launching soon. From the site: “Create and sell interactive longform stories on a collaborative platform built for storytelling.”
  • Responsible Responsive Design: The latest book by A Book Apart, penned by Scott Jehl. This is bound to be a good one. I can’t wait to read it.
  • Silicon Valley Job Title Generator: What are you? This morning I got “KICKSTARTER EVANGELIST.” Funny because yesterday, I blogged all about Why Kickstarter is bad for Christmas Gift (what I don’t mention in the title is what I think it’s great for).

Interesting Links & Podcasts for for July 18

Podcasts I’ve Been Listening To

Finally, with Google Glass I’ve created a new blog called People Reacting to Glass. It’s a lot of fun and you should check it out (and if you have Glass, submit your own photos)

Some Interesting Links & Podcasts

I just started listening to podcasts regularly so I figured I’d share some of them, as well as your normal cool links.

Stuff You Should Know: A podcast from How Stuff Works about general knowledge stuff that covers a wide range of topics from Bitcoin to Torture. Very interesting stuff!

Stuff You Missed in History Class: Another podcast from How Stuff Works that covers topics you may have not learned about in school.

ALA’s 2013 Summer Reading List: @alistapart is the best source on the web for web development and design articles. This is their recommended reading list.

Yesterland – Tobacco Shop: In looking for a cigar shop around Disneyland, I came across this interesting bit of history regarding Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom Disneyland. This talks about the Tobacco Shop, one of the first shops in the strip.

How to not be Alone: A really interesting article from @nytimes about how technology affects us. My favorite quote: Technology celebrates connectedness, but encourages retreat. 

The Missing Linc’s Doctor Who Viewing Guide – Series 1: I recently started watching Doctor Who. My friend Joe (@iammissinglinc) created this nifty viewer’s guide to help you learn what’s what!

Web Development Resources, Summer 2013

I have a ton of bookmark folders to help keep myself organized, though to be honest I usually bookmark something and then forget about it. So, while looking through some of my folders, I can across a good amount of web development resources I’ve been keeping. I’ve decided to share them.

April 9th: Articles Round Up

Since I’ve been travelling and sick for the last few weeks I haven’t really done a good job of promoting some articles I’ve written across the web. In-case you missed it, here are some of my better works!

Also, I’ve been tapped for a weekly spot over at Android.Appstorm, so be sure to check back there every Tuesday for my latest article!

Articles from Pocket July 5th, 2012

Here are some of my favorite articles from my Pocket account. I’ll probably do this sporadically based on how much I’m reading/how interesting the Internet is being.
