Here's what I've been up to and interested in lately…
Google made a pretty big announcement that could have far-reaching implications for the email world. Like the rest of the industry, I wrote up my thoughts on what AMP for Email means and, in this case, why it's a bad idea and one that's not likely to get off the ground. Save this one for some claim chowder later down the road.
What Congress Has Accomplished Since The Sandy Hook Massacre is a devastating look at one of the biggest problems in America. This is the bullshit state of our country, but there's hope.
Everything Easy is Hard Again really resonated with me. This essay from Frank Chimero lays out a lot of my thinking about the web much better than I ever could. He followed it up with The Good Room, another essay worth reading.
Finally, this Tiny Desk concert from Hurray For The Riff Raff might be my new favorite video. Alynda Segarra and crew are simply amazing. If you haven't listened to their album The Navigator yet, you should. One of the best albums to come out in years.
Strong reactions to any of the above? Want to chat about the web, email, or anything else? Email me and let me know. I promise I'll reply as soon as I can.
