Max Friedrich: Mein Problem mit Sofortnachrichten

maxfriedrich:

Ich benutze im Moment sieben verschiedene Kommunikationswege und Dienste, um im Netz Nachrichten zu verschicken und empfangen. Das ist kein guter Zustand. Sieben sind zu viele. Aber keiner davon ist so gut, dass er andere ersetzen könnte, oder so schlecht und unwichtig, dass man ihn nicht mehr ertragen möchte und gerechtfertigt weglassen kann.

signals vs noises
i started a new practice around this time last year: i wanted to rely less on my phone and i wanted to cut back on distractions during the day. so i turned off almost all notifications on my iPhone (and my computer).
i did this in phases, of course, as one can’t go all-in.
• to start, i turned off notifications on less-frequently (or never) used applications. these were just taking up room in the notifications drawer anyways. i rarely use such apps passively. that is, i launch this kind of app to get information out and never find the need to push me anything valuable.
• i then made sure that all notifications, no matter where they come from, never ‘light’ up the screen – they only appear when i swipe into the notifications drawer. a good side-effect of this is that it no doubt will increase your battery life. the screen doesn’t have to wake up a hundred times a day, as most of these will go unnoticed with the phone in your pocket.
• i also turned off all sounds for alerts: the only thing that rings is a phone call. old-school. a negative of this is that i sometimes miss a text message or two and don’t answer them until some time has passed. (if you really wanted to, you could set up Messages so that it’s silent in ‘silent mode’, but vibrates in ‘normal mode’: this way you at least can keep up with texts when you’re in a mode where you’re expecting someone.)
i recently brought this idea to bed: instead of using an alarm clock, i sometimes wake up with the Jawbone UP’s alarm. it vibrates softly on your wrist and nudges you out of bed; there are no noises. a bonus is that there’s no option to snooze with this method: there’s no chance for me to stagger my wake-up nine minutes at a time. the more i got used to vibrate-as-alarm, the more i fell in love with this type of signal. if it vibrates during the day, it means that i’ve been idle and that i should move more. if it vibrates early in the morning, it’s time to wake up.
i’ve been looking for more signals like it.

Tatsächlich mache ich das seit einiger Zeit genau so und habe seit einer Woche auch das UP in Benutzung.

Next, we’re going hunting Hitler! « Beyond the Iron Sky

Die Macher von Iron Sky wollen einen Film in die Kinos bringen, in dem ein Auftragskiller den Auftrag bekommt, in der Zeit zurück zu reisen und Adolf Hitler zu töten. Der Film basiert auf dem Comic I killed Adolf Hitler von Jason (gelesen ✓) und soll 2014 produziert werden.

Außerdem gibt es Neuigkeiten zu Iron Sky selbst:

And, on the topic of Iron Sky - yes, there’s more where that came from, absolutely! We had so much fun with the Moon Nazis, that we want to make more stories on them! And the good news is that we are going to – and not just one, but two things! Iron Sky prequel and an Iron Sky sequel!

Iron Sky habe ich vor einigen Monaten im Kino gesehen und finde es ziemlich cool, dass ein Prequel geplant ist, in dem erzählt wird, wie die Nazis auf den Mond gekommen sind und was sie die 70 Jahre dort getan haben. Klingt spannend, wird geguckt. (Es soll auch ein Sequel erscheinen, aber it won’t be hitting the theaters any time soon!.)

Im Moment wird Iron Sky The Coming Race gecrowdfundet.

Tweetbot for Mac

Endlich! Sieht aus wie Twitter for Mac und das ist gut so. TfM gefällt mir von allen Clients für den Mac eh am besten, kann aber leider weder Hashtags muten geschweige denn diese mit der iPhone/iPad App syncen. Tweetbot gibt es ja bereits für iOS und dort wird alles über iCloud gesynct.

Meinetwegen kann die App ruhig 15€ kosten, gekauft wird sie sowieso.
