Sunday Seven #2

Welcome to the Sunday Seven issue number two. Every week I bring seven interesting links that I think are worth checking out.

Beer drinking and writing release notes with the Medium team →

How a tweet turned into an invite to see the inner workings of the way release notes come about. Of course this is all fun and games until everyone starts doing it, then it becomes annoying.

Why Does Pessimism Sound So Smart? →

Despite the record of things getting better for most people most of the time, pessimism isn’t just more common than optimism, it also sounds smarter. It’s intellectually captivating, and paid more attention to than the optimist who is often viewed as an oblivious sucker.

The Useless Agony of Going Offline →

At the end of the experiment, I wasn’t dying to get my phone back or to access Facebook. I just wanted to get back to being better informed. My devices and the Internet, as much as they are sometimes annoying and frustrating and overflowing with knuckleheads, help me to do that.

Sneaker Wars: Inside the Battle Between Nike and Adidas →

Besides being an interesting battle I found this crazy – The Jordan brand alone has more than 20 times Adidas’s share of the American basketball-shoe market.

Zoolander 2: Joyless and Offensively Stupid →

You don’t need to go to the theater to get the full experience of Zoolander 2. Simply get your hands on a copy of the original, watch it, and then yell a bunch of unfunny topical lines every time somebody tells a joke. [..] It’s a film that has no real reason to exist, and it spends its entire running time reaffirming that fact.

NOOOO! Please say it isn’t so.

Migrate notes from Evernote to Apple Notes →

This method seems much more user friendly then the way I had to do it. If you are looking to move from Evernote give this a go.

The Old People’s Guide to DJ Khaled →

After reading about Snapchat last week I decided to give it a try. A few hours later I had three friends, no messages, and no idea what I was doing. Thankfully Ian told me to follow this guy who made no sense. Now at least I know how to translate. 🔑
