I like thinking about design, tech, bouldering; and bringing people together around these things.
@chrischinch Haha, have spent a long time looking for the perfect pannier bag. @chrischinch If a laptop bag is your thing, there are satchels that can be attached to the racks: https://t.co/A2vQvaN2tp @chrischinch Having said that, you can obviously get them with accommodations for laptops. @chrischinch I do on occasion, but a padded sleeve is a must. Most a pannier bags have little in the way of padding and protection. @chrischinch Do you have any requirements? I.e. price, aesthetics, features? @itursh Know of any good design researchers in Berlin I should be talking to? @itursh Ah thanks. @aaronabentheuer, don’t suppose you’ll be in Berlin at the end of September? 😉 @chrischinch My first pair were the Back-Roller Plus (https://t.co/iN212E91Us), but their Urban Line look nice (https://t.co/QhnsG2xoHa). @chrischinch Ortlieb are great value for money. There’s a reason why so many bicycles with a pannier bag have an Ortlieb attached.
@aaronabentheuer Great suggestions! Any individuals in Berlin come to mind? @chopeh Support representatives is great, hadn’t thought of them. @chopeh Any suggestions on roles in particular? Engineers collaborating with designers, product managers, etc.?If you were to attend a panel about design in tech, what would make for a more interesting group of panelists?
@sammargalit Oh great! Will send you a DM.Melbourne friends, looking for a spare room close to the CBD around 10th–31st of October. Any leads?
It just occurred to me that I signed up for a Twitter account on this day in 2006. A decade ago.
@josephcorcoran +1 for Fantastical. I use it on both Mac and iOS.
@paulozoom With a plugin? Or new feature!?
@mark_js After a few years, I’ve still not actually memorised the keyboard layout, so every now and then I find myself hunting for keys. @mark_js Perhaps using both allows you to maintain your muscle memory. I only have fragments of QWERTY left, mostly password reflexes. @mark_js @jegtnes @zachinglis How did you manage to maintain your ability to touch type on QWERTY!? @zachinglis Do be aware that after switching you’ll pretty much be useless an any QWERTY keyboard (touch screen keyboards are still fine). @zachinglis I switched to Dvorak a few years ago. Though I hear Colemak is all the rage these days.
@dotmariusz @josephcorcoran Maybe @WeWorkBER will hire a great in-house barista? Better yet, train me up as one! @dotmariusz Sad, but true. 😭 @josephcorcoran @dotmariusz Will have to check that out. Though, Westberlin is still closer, but a 7 minute cycle. @dotmariusz Wish there was at least one specialty coffee shop here in Potsdamer Platz, lack of good coffee is killing me! @dotmariusz Oh that sounds great. @dotmariusz Oh, exciting! @dotmariusz Yeah I got that, just got a little excited there. Does the new place have a name or anything? @dotmariusz There’s also The Visit opening on Adalbertstraße 9 soon, so you’re going to be so spoilt for choice around there. @dotmariusz Where, where!?
Received one of my best compliments from a developer today—that my design work had not only made the product better, but his code too.
@brentriddell Check out the Airbnb iOS app.
@itsluke What time were you thinking? Might try to drop by.
It’s too cold for the beer garden anyway right? https://t.co/ZypGBjApKa
@mrgnrdrck +1 for Reeder on both OSX and iOS.
As an author of the Agile Manifesto I want that stupid story format to go away So that people can get to the essence of user stories.

@paulozoom Felt the same way when 37 Signals did the same.
If you’re around tomorrow evening, would love to see you at this screening. https://t.co/7spmnBmbpZ
Look forward to seeing Urbanized again at next week’s screening. https://t.co/7spmnBmbpZ
@jaygreasley What has the world come to? I mean, is nobody teaching their children how to tie their own bow or neck tie?
@chrischinch I do have a tailor I use who travels to Berlin once or twice a year, happy to let you know next time he’s in town. @chrischinch Ah right. I’m not sure, will keep it in mind though. I usually get everything from the UK as I can’t find what I like here. @beatrixcoles @chrischinch Good question. I’m not sure. You’re looking for a specialist in Italian tailoring? Bespoke?
@hypothes_is @dwhly Yup, that did the trick. I was actually able to sign in via the bookmarklet with Safari on the Mac. @jongold @JayGreasley I saw two perspective changing talks by Chris Bangle and David Suzuki in that hall. Missing home right now. @hypothes_is Sign in via the bookmarklet doesn’t appear to work (sign in via website works), what am I doing wrong? https://t.co/RqJ9IIk2jU @JayGreasley You’re in Melbourne!?
@dhh Recently fired up Transport Tycoon for a nostalgic evening session. Next thing I realised, the sun was coming up.
@edwardhorsford Social etiquette dictates you get out and take the stairs. 😇
@harryfk Are you working on a language learning product!?

Technical interviews are the cause of so much of my imposter syndrome, @DavidChouinard perfectly articulates why: https://t.co/iFJYBdGjQa @davidchouinard This resonated with me so much. Any suggestions on where to find teams looking for product engineers? @jongold You’re interested in how to teach computers to be creative and I’m really interested in how computers can create love. @jongold And that paper really reminds me of this one (https://t.co/Qfawf7ZHng), which I came across via this (https://t.co/zSDXVxuwKx). @jongold There’s a great bit about how Bach used to encode his name in his music so as to fill it with himself. @jongold On a related theme, you might find Gödel, Escher, Bach (https://t.co/I38iEqrLhO) interesting.
@moreofmorris Hey James! Wondering if I could pick your brain about your design work at Buffer—any chance I could buy you a coffee? :)
Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m currently available for work. Open to freelance or contract, but ultimately looking for a permanent, remote gig.
@dotmariusz I feel your pain. Had to order mine from the Apple Store online.
@zachinglis great to finally meet you. Safe travels!
