Really enjoyed what was discussed here.

Apple Home

Here’s a product that I can see being announced Monday: One device, that handles your wifi, your air condition, your lights, your Siri request, and playing high quality audio around the house. Amazon Echo, Sonos, Eero, and many other rival products, do just one of the features—where the Apple Home would do them all.

Cavs or Warriors

We’re a few hours away from the NBA Finals. I spent most of today considering both sides, and who I’m picking to win it all this year. I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t pick.

I’m torn between both sides. For every person picking the Cavs, I can argue that the Warriors have too much firepower, and Durant will go into these game taking advantage of this new opportunity he’s placed himself in—and for every person picking the Warriors, I can argue that LeBron is LeBron, Irving can’t be guarded by anyone on the opposing team, and either of those guys can take over the entire game at any moment.

I can’t decide, so I’ll let you decide for me. I’ll just enjoy the show.

Microwaved Art

You’re too busy to appreciate the art in front of you. I get it. You don’t have time to slow down anymore. So if something is too complicated to pick up on that first watch or listen, it will never get unpacked and absorbed the way it should—you’re already on to the next thing. There’s too many options, with so little time. You would rather your servings come in portions rather than a full meal, that way you can try a variety of flavors. I get it. But there’s art out there that’s meant to be studied, processed, over a longer timespan. These artist and directors spend years working on their projects, and then you fly through it, without ever getting to know its deeper meanings.

WWDC 2017: A few days away and still no leaks

John Gruber:

The closer we get to the WWDC keynote, the more likely things are to get spoiled. But here we are 5 days out and no one has leaked just about anything about iOS 11 or MacOS 10.13, or what’s going on with this 10.5-inch iPad Pro, or if there’s anything new coming for WatchOS or tvOS. Again, there’s a lot of time between now and Monday morning, but it might be time to give Tim Cook credit for doubling down on secrecy.

WWDC is the biggest day for Apple. It’s the day that lays out the plans for the year. And we know nothing about what’s coming Monday. I have a good feeling about this one.

Monthly Recap (May 2017)

What a month. A lot happened (new town, new apartment, new job location, new baby in the family). I broke through barriers, and forced my words to arrive on the page. It started with Zero Gravity, then an 8-minute song, titled I Always Mean Well. I wrote about Endless, Frank Ocean’s album before the album. I wrote my mom a simple Happy Mother’s Day paragraph about how much she means to me. I wrote a birthday post to myself, titled 31: a blank canvas. I announced Art At The Park, a 6-week small group for the summer. I wrote about Chris Paul hopefully going to the Spurs. I wrote about how it’s been a year since I drank any alcohol. And the one that I haven’t spoke about yet, but spent several days building: my About page has become an all-in-one location for everything on my site. It simplified everything for me, while giving me more power and flexibility.
