DropBox Competitor Copy.com is Going Away

I previously shared this and racked up a bunch of cloud space. However, in using it with my team, we found a few issues. When I contacted support, they would sometimes go MONTHS between replies to my messages. It was horrible. So on the one hand, I'm kinda sad to see it go.

The fact that there's now less competition, and that they gave away a lot of free space, is disappointing. But based on my experiences with their support, I was right in the middle of moving my team at +Fiddler Online websites over to Drive. So I was only planning to maybe use Copy as backup cloud storage for personal things going forward.

Anyone else sad to see them go?

Alright Gang, You Got Me Hooked, Let's Talk
+Jonathan Max Wilson​​​​, +Dave Booth​​​​, +Ryan Bickmore​​​​, +BJ Cardon​​​​ you all got me watching +Person of Interest​​​​ sometime back, in this post: https://plus.google.com/+JonathanMaxWilson/posts/U2yqt6nK96V

So now I want to talk about it (been meaning to a while).

1. Did season 1 (maybe 2 as well), have a lot of references to films? Like 1 film for 1 episode? There's the one with John in the wheelchair taking pictures of tenants, that's all kinds of Rear Window. Another with multiple references to Jurassic Park. One seemed very subtle in The Fugitive references (Lentz being the badguy and it having to do with falsifying drug results). The one where they're trying to get the head of HR to the FBI building mirrored 16 Blocks in lots of ways. Is this just me? And are lots of episodes that way, and I only caught a few?

2. Does anyone else hate Root? She was a great baddie, but it's unbelievable on a lot of levels as helpful. One of those ways is the machine seems to be able to say things that allow her to shoot like she has a 6th sense. Telling a person where an attacker is, isn't the same as being able to aim and shoot them.... Especially with 2 guns at the same time.

3. Is it just me or does it feel like John is being minimized and has become a very flat character? For that matter Shaw is too.

I'm only only most of the way through season 3 (I think, Netflix app won't open atm), so some of this may change further along. Just wanted to start a discussion. #ns

I need to find that movie and watch it again.... It seems like there were parallels to it (or maybe another movie and I'm mis-remembering now) in the episode that introduced Elias. The one where John's trying to save him and every thinks he's just a school teacher.

Better Because it Does Less
The pixel is the perfect essentialist's computer.

"By doing so much less, the Pixel encourages my parents to explore so much more."

Most reviewers have asked "why would you pay so much for something that does so little?"

An essentialist would respond "why would you pay so much for something that takes so much of your time and effort to update, maintain, and figure out how to do stuff with?"

Via +Daniel Fletcher​​​​ 
What if buying a computer that does much less actually lets you do so much more?

Hello empty inbox, my old friend
I’ve come to enjoy your peace again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was working
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the view of email silence

Automation Doesn't Necessarily Mean Less Jobs
This is a super interesting article about how computers replacing jobs and driving down costs, often opens the door to new demand, creating new jobs, even as it replaces others. #f
When computers start doing the work of people, the need for people often increases.

Question: how to filter new conversations only?
Hi, does anyone know of a way to filter only new conversations? I have a filter that forwards my messages to +Asana where I do a lot of my work. Clients can reply to the messages Asana sends and I can just continue the conversation in there. However, many clients reply to me directly for one reason or another. A few don't seem to receive the Asana emails.

In any case it moves the conversation back to my Gmail. But that causes my filter to create a new task in Asana each time the client replies. So I'm wondering if there's a way to only apply it to a first message in a conversation, and not any followup ones?

A similarly helpful thing would be applying the filter to only the first email received from a single person within a certain amount of time. So I could just have it forward the 1st email from the client, but then if they send 5 more emails, each with a single image attached, and each with a different subject, over the next half hour, it would only apply to the first 1.

Anyone have any ideas if either of these are possible? I can't seem to find anything out about how to do it.

Some really great iterative improvements here for estores. I wish more plugins would follow their example and stop putting anything more than a few settings in the wp_options table. #f

Story
Introduction
I'm a small business owner, marketer, designer, WordPress expert, and entrepreneur. I'm a Mormon Christian, a happily married husband, father, and life-hacker.

I like tech a lot when it makes my life easier, and I hate it when it makes my life harder. I'm a huge fan of simplifying and minimizing possessions and unnecessary demands on time. And also of making sure work done is effective, and not just efficiency  targeted at something unimportant. I love my wife, my son, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The best breakfast I've had in a long time. I had the special today which was a chicken-sausage hash. It was very good. Service was great too.

Horribly Slow Internet! I go to Starbucks for the wifi, but usually buy a drink while I'm there. This place has the SLOWEST Internet I've experienced in a long time. The 2 locations in Spokane, WA (almost due north of here) have Google-provided Internet, that's incredibly fast. This doesn't, and it's not just slower, it's painfully slow. Everything took 3X as long as it should.

The food is very good, just make sure to put sauce in your heaping bowl until you can see it. The service was amazing. They went way out of their way to take care of our children and make sure they enjoyed the experience as much as we did the food. They gave our son several origami animals and showed him how to make the frog jump, the bird flap its wings etc. Highly recommend.

Always good food. This place could use to patch their seats. And the stuffed French toast isn't that great. It's so smothered in strawberry syrup, you can't taste much else. But overall the food is good. The "kids eat free" deal, was a pleasant bonus.
