Rants and Raves

Stuff I was reading last week

NextBus data went down in SF this week so TransitApp released their software for SF. Great timing and marketing. I rode last week so I haven’t used the app yet.

A controversy in the Doula industry?

I’ll skip the politics article links this week.

Books: Sam Fuller‘s Brainquake – I’m about halfway done. I’m a sucker for pulp. You can follow me on Goodreads.com if you’d like, but I don’t read a ton of stuff. I’m trying to change that and read more (books) this year.

I went down a rabbit hole reading about DACs when I was looking up the price of headphones. Do any of you use a DAC?

This week- an article about The Sleeping Giants in the NY Times.

note: when I started to write this post, I thought I had saved up a bunch of links. I can’t find them. I must have just sat in silence for most of my time.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Links – Weekly Reading

GoogleReaderDo any of you regularly look forward to and check out weekly posts like the Inner Vision posts on TheWirecutter/Sweethome? It’s one of the few I remember to regularly manually type in and go to and read.

That said- I wonder about ‘updates’ and content a bit.

Maybe it’s because of the demise of Google Reader in the past and the way I used to use it, but I don’t remember to check sites like I used to. I got to the point of automated delivery and reading and then abandoned it when my favorite delivery tool went away. And I never adopted a new tool.

So, are there sites you “check”? Also- is there a “delivery system” you use? Leave me a comment below if so.
