I am not much of a handwritten note-taker but Rocketbook looks compelling. After I recently realized how my handwriting has deteriorated it might be good tool start hand writing again.

In Note-taking made easier for everyone—redesigning OneNote – Office Blogs

These design features, rolling out over the coming weeks, include three key areas of focus:

Enhancing usability for those who use assistive technologies.
Simplifying navigation controls.
Creating consistency across devices.

I have tried and used OneNote for some time but eventually always went back to Evernote, which is just does what suits my needs. That being said, OneNote is a nice app, and I am interested to see how this update will turn out.

In A Plethora of Space Operas: Where to Start With the Work of John Scalzi

I have tons of favorite authors, but there’s something special about finding that first author in whatever your favorite genre is that can tell a story that makes you go, “I want more of this immediately.” After reading Old Man’s War, I devoured all the work by Scalzi that I could afford to buy and then started waiting for him to publish more

Even though I am still not finished with the Expanse series, I am already looking forward to read something new. I have read one novella by Scalzi which was very nice and am interested in more. In this article are some good suggestions.

In Fluid Responsive Typography With CSS Poly Fluid Sizing – Smashing Magazine 

In this article, we are going to take it to another level. We are going to examine how to create scalable, fluid typography across multiple breakpoints and predefined font sizes using well-supported browser features and some basic algebra.

This looks like an interesting technique. Will have to try this next time I tweak some a theme.

If you are into spooky audio dramas The Magnus Archives might be for you. During the last year it has become one of my favorite shows and it has become part of Thursday morning routine.

Since we had a snowstorm the other day, not that I’m bitter, I was reminded of this nice info-graphic published by NASA a while ago.

Lot’s of interesting fact, nicely presented. Very interesting.

“To find the best things in the history of the internet”

In “A Time Capsule for the World Wide Web” blogger Tim Carmody asked the readers of Kottke.org to show him “What’s the best you got?” with the quest to find the best things in the history of the internet.

The result is this series of posts, which take quite a bit of time to go through. There is a lot of great stuff in there. Some familiar (to me) and lot’s of new stuff. Many things to explore.

Check out the posts here.

I’m a long time fan of Jerry Bergonzi. His music, teachings/books and more recently educational videos have accompanied me for more than 20 years. Some friends of mine had lessons with him in the past and it was always interesting to hear from them about the lessons. So far though, I never had the chance to meet him, or see him live.

The happier I was to learn that Jerry and Tim Hagans will perform on this years Elojazz Festival. The line-up seems to be similar to the above. Looking forward to see/hear him there.
