UPDATE 2015: Even more overwhelming now with Facebook, Facebook Pages, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Google+ Communities, Google for Business...
Why aren't #contacts central to the Google experience?
UPDATE 2015: Well, it is there now, but the following remains relevant and a thorn in my side.
Why can't I create a link between a Contact and a #calendar event without sending a Contact an invitation? Why do my Google Contact Groups not propagate to my Gmail such that I have to create totally separate "labels" and filters in Gmail when the structure I want is right there in my Contacts? Why do I have to maintain Circles
WHY OH WHY do I have to go to a third-party Contact Manager / CRM sigh
p.s. I do like the new Inbox Tab functionality but... no, I don't like the stock tab offerings. What I mean to say is, I wish I could customize them.
And I will still love you in the morning.
No, it isn't. Generic solutions are dead. Soulless theming and quick skinning are dead. Our solutions have to be better and smarter. Less templates, frameworks and trends and more storytelling, personality and character. Users strive for good stories and good photography; they appeal for good visuals and interesting layouts; they can't wait for distinctive and remarkably delightful user experiences. And that should be exactly our strategy to create websites that stand out.
There are way too many badly designed experiences out there, and there is so much work for us to be done. Proclaiming our craft to be dead is counter-productive, because we showed to ourselves and everybody out there what we are capable of. Last fifteen years of web design were nothing but outstanding in innovation and experimentation. And it's not about to stop, it's just not who we are.
If we can't produce anything but generic work, other creatives will. The web has to get better, and it's our job to make it better. Nobody said that it's supposed to be easy though; if we don't adapt our practices and techniques, we'll have to give way to people who can get it done better than we do—but web design itself isn't going anywhere any time soon.
"You breathed your spirit into my lungs one rainy afternoon, and you can't possibly imagine my gratitude... So wherever you've been, wherever you are, and wherever you're going, know this: you're with me still."
Whoever you, The Writer, are out there in this vast web of asynchronous communication, whether this is a tale from your imagination or the recounting of a memory from your past, it is both engaging and beautiful.
I'm grateful to have gotten this far in life to be able to appreciate the emotions of longing and gratitude in the context of that which is not resolved nor likely ever will be. And although your words, your story, brought me to tears, they are tears of relation, of empathy, of knowing that many of us share the same experience.

Also, the length of this beginning yoga tutorial is perfect (for me) for a morning routine (practice?).
Adrienne, I do have a question about the word, "practice," as I hear you mention this in a few of your yoga videos. You often say "your practice." I hear ownership in that word (I know, some of you might be saying, "d'uh") along with an idea that this is a continual exercise or event.
I never hear that in any other workout routine or exercise. For example, I never hear someone who does crossfit refer to their workout as a "practice." Certainly when we talk about sports teams, we understand that members "go to practice," but to hear one's integration of yoga into a daily or weekly routine referred to as a "practice" is very interesting.
When you say this, the pressure comes off immediately. I don't have to "get it right" each time, I just have to strive to understand the posture, the breathing... with a view toward improvement each time.
