7 Things This Week, 2023-05-14
A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.
1️⃣ I’m a sucker for a good desk setup post, and José Muñoz brought his A-game with this retrospective on a decade of using the Thunderbolt Display. It’s equal parts a love letter to that iconic piece of hardware and a fun progression of how it fit into his ever-evolving desks and office spaces. [🔗 José Muñoz // josemunozmatos.com]
2️⃣ Love this idea. If all the event invitees swipe left to say they don’t want or need the meeting, it’s canceled. [🔗 meetcala.com] (Via Matt Birchler)
3️⃣ Let’s see how Daisy, Apple’s recycling robot, is coming along! [▶️ Fully Charged Show // youtube.com]
4️⃣ One thing that ChatGPT excels at is providing endless options for a themed request. Case in point, this incredible list of letter sign-offs that’s ready for nearly any situation. [🔗 Shaun Usher // news.lettersofnote.com]
5️⃣ It’s absurdly easy to get lost in this delightful list of collective nouns. “A menagerie of animals” and “A parade of penguins” always get me. And for moms this Mother’s Day, I give you “A consternation of mothers” and “A mutter of mothers-in-law”. [🔗 wiktionary.org]
6️⃣ The method and visuals that go along with this music-from-text-prompt-generator tool are more impressive than the actual music it creates, but I still spent quite a bit of time noodling around with it. “Techno DJ and a country fiddle” is pretty good. [🎵 riffusion.com]
7️⃣ Take one minute, really just one, and play this little lovely game. You’ll smile at the end, guaranteed. [🕹️ Nicky Case // ncase.me]
