Xperia Smart Tags (by sonyericsson, via Protein)

“SmartTags are small programmable tokens that give your Android phone a series of commands to keep you from performing repetitive tasks. For example, swiping your phone on a nightstand could switch your phone to silent, turn off mobile connections and set your alarm for the following morning.” 

Isn’t this just a deep critique of the complexity of smartphones?

These tags might be interesting if they could launch programmes or routines, or trigger an “if this, then this” style set of cascading actions, but everything I’m seeing in the promo would be trumped by easily accessible phone “profiles”. 

Having said that, the tech geek in me is still itching to see these come to market…

Much as I love my @poetryschool online workshops, I’m getting so excited by the poets I want to TALK to them, not chat-speak. Frustrating!

Every now and then I have to ask myself: do I really need an assistant or do I just need to make better choices regarding the work I do?

"If you don’t know what your passion is, then you’re in luck…because blogging will help you find one…."

“If you don’t know what your passion is, then you’re in luck…because blogging will help you find one. There is a passion deep inside you, and when you sit down day after day and put words onscreen, you’ll start to understand what it is you like to write about, and want to keep learning about, and talk to readers and other bloggers about. The discovery process of blogging helps connect you to yourself.”

-

blogging is good for you: why, for the love of the gods, you should start your author blog today | Justine Musk

I also like this, because I feel like one of the things we just never learn is the process of introspection. I’m not entirely sure, but it seems to me that living is as much about determining the way we feel about the things happening around us as it is experiencing those things. That’s why, after things go wrong, we need to process things to get back to normal, but also why to really thrive, we need to take that time to think. And so, I like this: to uncover our passion means as much thinking about and understanding why we like the things we do, as doing them.
