Just returned from NYU Hospital where my 9-year-old had abdominal ultrasound for chronic tummy ache (which I believe has emotional causes). It was long and emotionally draining for both of us. We were supposed to complete a school-mandated math take-home test which is already late. Instead I have declared it an ice cream, Minecraft, and no-homework night.

Twitter is slowly rolling out a new layout, user by user. Interesting: tweets that get traction get enlarged.

This is what the big companies want, big images, and lots of places to insert their ads. The old twitter design was just not meant for ads, and while users loved it, it didn't bring advertising bucks to twitter

“You’re damn talented. But in your eagerness to prove it, you sometimes rush toward a solution. You pluck an idea from the branch and throw it onto the plate before it has time to ripen. Don’t mistake speed for precocity: the world doesn’t need wrong answers in record time.”
