The wise man builds his house upon the rock.
Safari is so solid but Arc has some extra spice that has me coming back. Reach out if you need an invite code.
Podcasts are likely my most consumed media. Having a solid player is essential. Overcast’s Smart Speed and Speed Boosts are spectacular. The ability to custom clip intro’s and outtro’s only saves more time.
For now, 1Password handles our family’s passwords. Although Apple is coming on hard with new features to Keychain.
Notion handles all my personal databases. Things like my travel log, media diet, exercise log, and similar.
Used for years in beta before the 1.0 launch in Spring 2023. Native Mac email app with Gmail keyboard shortcuts. Lovely.
The keyboard command center for my personal computer. Alfred has replaced (in succession), Quicksilver, and Launchbar and now serves as my launcher, clipboard manager, and allows me to do some fancy voodoo magic. I have recently tried Raycast but it didn’t stick.
Indispensable tool for expanding and reusing text snippets.
Pure cleanliness. Keyboard shortcuts make this app best in class. Almost the perfect to do list app.
I’ll never use all the power in this app. I really just use it as a glorified Markdown editor.
More powerful than a calculator and more lightweight than a spreadsheet.
I’m somewhat obsessive about keeping my technology neat and tidy. Bartender is a must.
Have good backups.
Minute to learn, lifetime to master kind of thing.
Adobe Creative Cloud
Every photo I take gets run through Lightroom; many of those benefit from some of the many tools available in Photoshop.
I waited to long to get setup in this world. Incredible power.
It doesn’t suck.
All my development needs are taken care of within Github. I need to be better at git.
RSS will save us all. NetNewsWire is the oldest and cleanest reader for the Mac and iOS.
Readwise is a fantastic tool to make the most out of your time spent reading. I review a handful of highlights that I save to it every day, and use the Markdown export to bring those passages into my notes.
Have any tools you think I should try out? Send me a recommendation!
How kind of you to make your way down here.
A bit about me: I can be interested in anything, for better or worse. I love photography, travel, golf, and baseball. My latest pursuit is learning the guitar. I write a rad newsletter that I publish monthly.
