The Traveling Drone

Morning Coffee 25: October 3rd, 2022

I’m in Mandeville this morning. Helping out with some drone work and shooting a commercial. Always interesting trying to write while traveling. Let’s begin.

The Traveling Drone

Spent the day working with cameras, drones, and microphones. It’s always a treat when I get to do this kind of work. Even more so when it’s out of town. Networking, building relationships, and offering my talents to the world. It’s what I was born to do.

Simplified weather

I recently switched CARROT Weather to a very simple look: the current weather on top, with the next 72 hours trailing underneath. Nothing else. As I scroll through those 72 hours, I watch the temperature snake from hot to cold, I watch the sun go down, and I notice when the icon goes from sun to rain. A very clean and simple way to monitor the weather.


Sofa remains one of my favorite apps on the iPhone. I recently cleaned up my lists, getting it back down to just the essentials. Three main lists (TV, Movies, and Games), with a section titled Collections” underneath.

Collections is where I make cool personalized lists for things that are connected. Like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or all of Christopher Nolan’s films.

This is Morning Coffee: a weekly newsletter that arrives in your inbox every Monday morning. I write about productivity, technology, and cool things I find on the internet. My wife wants this to be my only job, so pay what you want, purchase my books on Amazon, or join my Music Program.

Made 100 coffees in a row. Made a gaming page with a 1989 photo of me. Released two books on Amazon. Celebrating Rose turning two. Working from home for a big company. Writing a newsletter every Monday morning. Last updated: March 7th, 2024.
