7 Things This Week [#94]

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]
