Been a while since I’ve posted. I hope that everyone is doing well and had a nice holiday season.

Fun book that I started while on a business trip. I love the concept of first clearing out the static in our life, then adding in creativity.

On today’s episode of Daily Jazz: On Green Dolphin Street, one of my all time favorite jazz tunes. Open up Spotify and enjoy!…

A new episode of Daily Jazz: Autumn in New York…

I’ve been doing some podcasting at work and decided it was time to make my own podcast. The first episode is out! It’s called Daily Jazz and is exclusively on Spotify. Each day I examine a jazz song, share the history, and play a few different versions from different artists. Since this podcast is produced in partnership with Spotify, anyone with a Spotify subscription can hear the full tracks in each episode. (Everyone else gets samples of them.)

Jazz is a huge part of my life and I’ve wanted to do a project like this for a long time. I hope my love for this great music will help you to love it too!

Over the last month I’ve been using the Apple Notes app a lot. I’ve got an Apple Pencil to use with my iPad and I can’t believe how much I enjoy doing handwritten notes. Plus they are searchable.

Maybe this is the Evernote replacement I’ve been searching for (for 4 years).

This morning I decided to do a distance day at the pool. The goal: swim a mile, no stopping. Never done that before.

The guy sharing my lane asked what my workout was going to be. His advice? Take it one lap at a time.

36 laps later I finished. Take it one lap at a time. Solid gold advice.

It’s interesting to see some of the reactions to the news ProtonMail provided Swiss authorities with a user’s IP address. (See this article for some details.) What a hard position for them. When a legal subpoena comes your way you either comply or risk your entire business.

The weekend is over and it’s time to get ready to go back to work. The pool I go to in the mornings is closed for the next week for annual maintenance. Anyone have a suggestion on an alternative to swimming I can do in the mornings?

Yesterday I did a “distance day” at the pool. When I ran cross country in high school I always enjoyed distance days when we would go out and run double our normal daily distance. I didn’t quite do that in the pool, but I did hit a new personal best for one workout: 2,000 yds.
