Today I signed up for @venmo. I’m stunned that it has a social component, a privacy nightmare turned on by default. Use @SquareCash, people!Perfection. https://t.co/5z5v1AhP2SThat little dissonant detour in the chorus of “Sometimes It Snows in April.”https://t.co/NL64vO0DUEThis isn’t about partisan polarization, but it does seem to reflect our growing tendency toward knee-jerk opinions. https://t.co/RM3UsVipz0The main reason I care about the Web is because it's the world's biggest software platform that isn't owned. https://t.co/czRLdJPQmf

Beiber show in my hood tonight. Easily accessible via Long Island Railroad and 11 subway lines. The night air is a cacophony of car horns.An app to monitor how often you say “thank you.”

I think one of the things I love about music is that it seems like both a miracle and an inevitability.Looks like you can’t bring guns into the Texas Capitol. #ComeAndTakeIt

I am loving this new Charlie Rose branding, espcially the type lock-ups with the huge quotation marks. https://t.co/KvHvRABBDY
Retweeted by Rob WeychertNo more skipping live shows of artists that are important to me. No more opportunity for that regret. See everyone at least once, ASAP.Even if it had ever occurred to me that Prince was mortal, I couldn’t have anticipated the magnitude of the loss. I’m still so sad.

@FictiveCameron Probably not anytime soon. https://t.co/liqkAomvrS @FictiveCameron There are some UX rough edges I can’t seem to get past; it can’t sync with iOS devices; metadata features are less robust. @FictiveCameron It’s a good app and worth trying, but it’s not as mature a product as iTunes (admittedly, that’s a good thing in some ways).“I remember a little scuffle broke out… one night and Prince said, ‘Stop fighting, you’ll mess up your clothes.’” https://t.co/poQbr8BqBS

@essl I never turned that on. Shit show from day one.After 5 months with @swinsian, I’m switching back to iTunes. Many reasons, but the final straw is the need to have Prince songs on my phone.

@mikeindustries @gruber George Harrison had already been gone a few years. That’s his son Dhani.Spike Lee’s block party honoring Prince is the first thing I’ve smiled at all day. https://t.co/8CbKam6SLnTaking a slightly different route home tonight. https://t.co/9Do9XE33TAThis sucks.Eric Clapton was asked about how it felt to be the world's best guitarist. His response: "I don't know. Ask Prince".

Retweeted by Rob WeychertI designed this @ProPublica app promo page two weeks ago. Every time I see it, “Take Me With U” plays in my head. https://t.co/HZc4IfBaVg @theledu When we met, this wasn’t the first thing you told me about yourself. I hope your means of introducing yourself have since improved.57 could be the lifespan on whatever amazing, sticky, purple sex planet he was from. He was likely 35,060 in Prince years, none wasted.
Retweeted by Rob Weychert @markdorison If there’s someone out there who doesn’t, I don’t want anything to do with them.That time when the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was being reliably boring and then Prince burned the fucking place down. https://t.co/Crcw8jBYdZPrince, if you can still hear, thank you for your musical genius, love and hiring KILLER lady musicians when no one else would. We owe you.😓
Retweeted by Rob WeychertPurple Rain was one of the first albums I ever got. I loved it. Still do. When the PMRC denounced it, I became obsessed with it. RIP Prince.

@garbnzgh Don’t be a hater.

Whenever a gun lover talks about how cars kill more people than guns, I’m like, “Yep, let’s get rid of cars too.”“If U.S. roads were a war zone, they would be the most dangerous battlefield [our] military has ever encountered.” https://t.co/X8rEKPUBqS @sanspoint Cool, thanks for the opinions! I’ll give it a try and see how it goes. @sanspoint I don’t use Evernote collaboratively, so I haven’t tried Work Chat, and Evernote hasn’t been overbearing about pushing it on me. @sanspoint Interesting. What’s your favorite aspect of Notes that trumps Evernote? @mattsinger Even more fun for obituaries.Has anyone switched from @evernote (or similar) to Apple’s Notes app? Pros?

(Thirty-seven years later, it is fair to assume the Warriors now handle all disputes from rivals – gangs or otherwise – with litigation.)This Warriors basketball team I keep hearing about isn’t even from Coney Island and let’s see some aggressive trademark litigation please.
