Synchronous communication and it's issues

I have no idea what to write today but I will start, and I am sure words will come. I have a couple of topics floating in my head for longer stories. One is obviously continuing my memoir about my time in Sweden but I've hit a snag there: I...

James Blake is dropping his new album in 30 minutes. In 8 hours I'll be walking to work listening to a podcast, resisting the urge to listen to the album. Throughout the day I’ll tell all my colleagues about James Blake and his talents and his discography and his impact...
