Ah, Monday. Though I prefer a lazy pot of coffee at home on a Sunday, there is always something special about the first cup of coffee at the office on Monday: it heralds the start of a new day, a new week, and no matter the weather or the commute or the mayhem that might […]
Jack and my father play the same game, naming the song artist, title and (if possible) album of every bit of music they encounter. I am abysmal at this game, and have been my whole life; when I haven’t the slightest clue, Jack insists—despite my protestations—on giving me clever, cryptic, pun-laden hints until I catch up. […]

Oh hey, Friday! We love the internet as much as anyone, but especially when things get busy (ahem, this week), we feel the effects of the brain drain Epipheo describes. Do you? Also take a peek at a time-scale map of the T, read about how app design (specifically UX) can make us fat, and […]
